    Fuck that! I hate deep shit. Too messy to clean up! It's fun for a while though and occasionally I like mud. I've decided to snorkel the grizzly! I sucked a little water in the clutch and slipped the belt. My dad pulled me out with his Grizz. Told my buddy next weekend we're tearing the plastics off and laying out some plumbing!

    Just checked the southeast area thread and didn't see any thing yet, but i'll keep my eye on it.


    haha, I didn't mind the mud at all surprisingly. Probably since I usually avoid it with the truck it was great to finally let loose and get as dirty as possible. Plus we just paid $10 to power wash the atvs right in the park after we were done. Good Idea on the snorkels tho, better to have it and not need it then need it and not have it... ;) Shouldn't be too hard to snorkel the grizz, are you planning on running two 1.5" pipes off the air box? Couldn't believe how well this Kodiak ran, just needed a lot more power, but pretty much made it through everything my buddy and his mudpro (on 30" backs) went thru. Id say for around here, (especially at that atv park) snorkels and a rad relocate are pretty much mandatory if you wanna play in the holes. Lots of trails to run tho, but i'll more than likely end up with two different sets of wheels/tires to make the best of it. One thing I found interesting, my buddies Grizz 660 sitting on 30" Silverbacks kinda struggled in the deeper holes. Didn't water wheelie as much as the Kodiak did, but I think he may need clutch work.

    Yup, that's the stuff I used. Lemme know how the Por-15 works out for you over the winter. Stone chips should be a thing of the past, I hope. This stuff dries super hard and is a little $$ but hopefully it does the trick. I'll know after one winter. haha

    Hey Shane, I'm down for some wheeling anytime now. Haven't been out once this year so I'm definitely due. Really sad to hear ardbeg is all level now. Can't believe they tear up the land just for snowmobilers.

    I'd love to try greens mountain, never wheeled there before either. I'll check Sontt and see if anyone has a run planned. If not, we should just pick a wknd and put the word out.

    All Pro bumper is for sale. Comes with light hoop. Had it sandblasted and painted it with por15. This will definitely last longer and much more durable than powder coating.

    Prefer local sale. $SOLD

    I have a friend that would likely be interested if you're willing to ship to BC?

    So just a heads up, SONTT is having their annual Ardbeg trail run on Aug.9th so if anyone hasn't seen the thread over in that forum, come on out for a great time!

    I got the fun job of slapping all my armor back on before the trip, and still need to wire up the led light bar and new fog lights as well. I'll share pics when I'm done this week or next.

    Haven't been offroading the truck yet this summer :( but I did get to play in some mud... got a couple short videos of me messing around from our atv trip last month.

    I saw a Can Am XMR1000 the other day at a poker run. I tell you what, I was impressed! Dude rode into the middle of a shallow mud pond and stood it straight up! Was freaking awesome! I still don't care for Can Am's suspension and brake setup but that thing was a beast! And the exhaust he had was crazy awesome too!

    Well I'm alive! Lol. Quite busy these past few months with working on the old house and the now new but i'm finally moved in and somewhat settled. Still lots of little projects to do but thats never ending anyways. Taco has been neglected for a little while but not anymore, time to get working on her again, starting with those damn inner fender liners.

    I did manage to get out and play a little tho, nothing crazy. I apologize for the build thread being in complete chaos, i'll try and get my pics together and repost a bunch soon.

    Finally got some work done to the truck, taking a little coffee break and then getting back to it. Been meaning to do this for a long time now...

    Inner fender liners are a must if you live in Canada or anywhere that sees snow for that matter.

    (ya i'm an idiot and didn't leave myself and tabs to mount the thin abs plastic too, so fabbing up some inner and outer aluminum supports)

    Just need to mount them using an assortment of rivets and nuts/bolts. Then plan on using christmas tree (tis the season) plastic clips to secure the liner to the supports. This way i can remove them once a year to spray rust proofing oil from Krown. Got the passenger side almost done, 3 more sides left then get em mounted. Better get back out into the shop and get working ha
