    Well the next run may be within the next couple of weeks. Just talked to Finn, he's itching to get out again real soon. Much better bombing around in the snow with a buddy tho, beats trying to shovel yourself out every time you get stuck. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna get in on that MaxTrax group buy going on. That should help a lot since I hate shovelling if I don't have to :eek: especially when snow wheelin by myself. Which usually ends up happening.

    One thing about that shop in London, call ahead and order it. They get next day delivery because they don't usually carry ARB products.
    Yea my problem is the opposite. We got a Yamaha dealer in town and two more within a 30 min drive and also Artic Cat, Kawi and CanAm dealers within that same distance. Makes for lot of choices. I got 2 good buddies that both ride MudPro's and they love em. Especially since they come setup for the mud with bigger tires, snorkel and great GC. I like them but I think the Grizz looks better, is a bit smaller more nimble and probably better for the trail, plus I think its more reliable and dependable imo. I just have a feeling wheelin around home with my buddies is gonna turn into a bunch of mudding and less trail riding. Part of the reason is to ride decent trails, that's all located a few hours north of us. I think going with a Grizz is going to cost me more money down the road (rims, upgraded tires, snorkel, rad relocate, etc) than going with a MudPro, but in the end I think i'll like it more. In the mean time, I'm trying to keep my eye off the XMR 650 :laughing:

    I thought about the maxtrax but, I got to see where im at after I install all my stuff. If anything is next on the list, its a winch. Thanks for the heads up on the shop, would hate to drive all that way to just place an order.

    Thanks for the inspiration! Question tho, how much ground clearance do you have with the 26" tires on? Finally made it out too some dealers to see these atv's in person...

    2014 Arctic Cat MudPro 700 LTD with power steering, 28" zillas and 14" rims and 3500lb warn winch for $12,600 plus tax.

    [​IMG]

    Heres a 2014 Can Am XMR 650. Power steering, 28" mudzillas, rad relocated, stealth snorkels and vtwin power adding up to 62hp. No winch tho. Dealer wants $10,900 plus tax.

    Went to local Yamaha dealer and they didn't have any Grizzly's in stock. They will be in next week to look at. Asked him about price and he said for a 2014 Grizz 700 will be $10,900 plus tax but includes 12 month warranty (everyone else offers 6 month) and he thinks a Warn 3500lb winch is included as well. And of course Grizz comes with stock 25" tires and steel rims.

    I'd say I have ~12" clearance without measuring. It's up there plenty for me! In the end it's up to you but I know my Yamaha will start when I turn the key! I have friends with canned hams and they've had nothing but disappointments. I know one person who had a cat, it was a sxs and it caught fire lol! I think your best bet would be to ask a buddy to borrow his for a day and try all types of riding and see what you like. You may hate mudding and want to trail mostly. You may love mudding. I just wouldn't buy a, to me, overpriced "mud based" machine without knowing it's EXACTLY what you want to do

    Sorry everyone, my build page is all messed up. Been super busy these past couple months and kinda got pissed off with Photobucket and Youtube trying to change my username and whatnot. So I'm starting fresh. New bucket account and Youtube acct as well. Re-editing all my videos so hopefully they'll be a little more fun to watch. Especially the older ones. Should have this build all fixed up in a lil while, but in the meantime...
    My rig is going to be getting a very new facelift in the next few weeks :D
    Also working on building inner fender liners from abs plastic. Should have that ordered by tomorrow.

    Looking forward to this years wheelin' season. Can't wait to get out on the rocks!

    Here's my new youtube channel

    https://www.youtube.com/my_videos?o=U


    and stay tuned for more videos being uploaded daily. Got so much footage to go through and edit more thoroughly.

    Good luck on the house sale! My cousin and his wife were trying to sell their place but never found anything they wanted and pulled theirs off the market.

    That's the problem we are having as well. Haven't found a suitable home to buy just yet either. Now that spring has hit tho, the housing market should pick up quite a bit so hopefully we'll see something we like soon.

    That's crazy! Same bike, similar mileage and year goes for $9,000+ easily!

    I'm sure you'll find something home-wise you like soon! And yeah, when I saw that deal I thought you'd enjoy it!
    lol
    As I tell my GF and her sister, a quad is the grassy area kids at a college socialize. It's a four-wheeler haha

    Hey Mike. Thanks for posting up pics of the sealant you used. You were right, after pulling carpet back I saw daylight on both sides. Used the sealant on the pinch weld, both inside and out. So far no more water coming onboard. Best of luck selling your house. Thanks for all the help and advice :cheers:
