    Once the lakes freeze with 12+ inches on them, they are great places to wheel.

    What's up Taco? I'm from Eagan. Considering I have a 2WD I won't be doing any climbing or mudding anytime soon. However, I will be making some mods. I realize having a 2WD in Minnesota is insane but I love the truck and don't want to give it up so I will be doing whatever it takes to help me get better performance in the loooooooooooong winter months.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Talk to you soon!

    Mike

    Not enough.
    I'm from the Esko, Mn. area (10 miles from Duluth Mn.). There is a recreational area for ATV'S, Dirt Bikes and 4X4 Trucks and Jeeps 70 miles north of me in Gilbert Mn. Here is the link http://www.ironrange.org/recreation/atv-ohv/ohv-park/

    There are hundreds of miles of trails for ATV'S and Snowmobiling up here. I have a 99 Tacoma TRD and have not been had it on the trails. I used to have a CJ 5 set up for off roading. I know there are 4X4 clubs that come up to the Cloquet area and do some serious off roading.

    I'll check around and see what I can find that is legal as the DNR can be a pain to the wallet.
