    Or just switch the shift knobs from the '84 and the '69, since they're opposite.

    Loon and Cannon are pretty much right down the street from each other so you might want to start at Wildcat then make your way to the other side of the Presidentials.

    Also, some of these places were closed last week due to high winds. Definitely keep an eye out on the forecast, maybe even check in with the different mountains.

    Thanks for coming to the North Country!!

    I used to pull the bedliner in my '99 every year. I'd sweep & wash it out, let it dry, then spray the entire bed down with one of those 'big blast' cans of WD40 before I put the bedliner back in.

    One of my favorite places to visit; and lucky it’s so close to home. Another reason I love living in New England. Throwback pic of my wife and the taco last time we were in the area:

    Nice pic!
    I know what you mean, so much my wife and I moved up here going on 20 years ago.

    This was taken last April from Rt 302. The lighting was too good to pass up.

    Hey y'all. Looks like a snow event tomorrow. Good day to pick up my new ride @mach1man001 :

    My first turbocharged vehicle ever! It was still in the crate Saturday when I bought it, so actual pictures will have to wait until tomorrow.

    Right, because sleds aren't complicated and expensive enough, let's drop a turbo in there! :laugh:

    I suppose. Body rust wasn't really an issue; even the underside was still immaculate when I handed my keys over. I should have done it with the damned frame; Arizona truck that was in Maine for less than 5 years and still ended up all swiss cheese-y by the rear spring mounts. Fortunately I knew that the warranty was running out in the next couple of months so I had Toyota check it one last time. Ended up with a $16k check for a truck I'd paid $6k for.

    Edit: Photos.
    Super clean body, even underneath.

    The frame...not so much

    Still miss that truck, though. Thing was a tank.

    Yeah, I'm kinda worried about it myself. Don't those things spin like 100k rpms or something? And I'm beating the ever loving shit out of it on icy trails... but it's got a 2 year warranty and whatever, I'll make Ski Doo fix it.

    Meh. If it's going to fail, it'll do it 60 miles back in the woods, in 10 degree weather, at night, on a holiday.

    On your '08? If so, there isn't anything under the plastic besides the ground. The plastic is the bed.

    I was wondering when they made the switch to composite beds.

    So it would be pointless?

    That was probably a pretty stupid question

    My wife keeps pressing me to sell our home and move up in the lakes region of NH.
    Soon enough I hope . Beautiful there and hundreds of places to kayak and fish and to just simply enjoy

    There's no stupid question. Ask if you don't know. That's how we all learn. The plastic bed is a tub that the quarter panels hang off of. The plastic is mounted to the frame with those bolts seen in the bed. Lifting the bed (plastic) will just expose the frame. For rust control on the rear frame section, you can get at it from under the truck. No need to remove the bed.
