    Awesome little vacation up north, besides the rain most of the time. Did a little exploring in the wildlife management area and some mild wheeling on some side trails. Almost forgot how beautiful northern VT is![​IMG]

    What's up guys, hello from Utah. I'm looking at a 1st gen to buy and it spent its first 4 years in Vermont before moving out here. What's your experience with frame rust problems up there? It's a long drive to check the truck out, just want to see if that 4 years is a big deal breaker for a 1st gen or if it's probably nothing to worry about.

    At minimum it has spent 12 years in Utah and that may chloride stuff you use on the roads out there. If it hasnt fell apart im 16 years at minimum why would it be a concern. Why don't you crawl underneath and lool at it

    I checked it out today, banged and jabbed all over the frame with a hammer and screwdriver. It was solid as a rock, surface rust only. I’m now a proud first gen owner!

    Hello everyone just got back here in Vermont/ New Hampshire. I need to get some work done on my truck and I need to do some Fab before that first snow storm comes. Any suggestions on a shop would be greatly appreciated. I’m currently in Lebanon. I’ve attempted to contact performance unlimited multiple times but have not gotten a response so I’m looking elsewhere. Thanks in advance for the shop ideas

    What's up Vermont? Getting my frame treatment at Alderman's on Monday. Almost traded it in a week ago on a full size. Crazy prices. 2013 TRD OR DC with 106k. Since moving to the NEK hardly drive anymore. 5k in 10 months took almost a year to change the oil lmao. Got me a new beast to braap along the Powerline. Can't wait for snow.

    IMG_8915.jpg 30yrs in central VT, now up in Colchester...looking for a shop to do a re-gear.
    I know about the 4x4 shop in S Burlington but I'm not looking to spend the 8K they quoted me just for a set of 5:29's.
    I just need a competent shop to install the 3rd member and split the front case.
    Options out there...?

    Pic for a shout out if ya see me running around :cheers:

    Hello friends. Dirty flatlander recently relocated to VT. 45 minutes north of St. Johnsbury. Have been hitting Class IVs and exploring the area for the last several months.

    What's good?

    I'm in Island Pond. Have you gone into Silvio Conte? Wenlock/West Mtn WMA? Brousseau Mtn Rd? East Branch Rd. Vt Fish&Wildlife have .pdf of all wildlife management areas. You can also hike up East Mtn in East Haven to Radar Base. Drive to Errol through Dixfield Notch or Pittsburg, NH lots of roads up there.

    I have seen you!
    I work in mallets bay travel from St. Albans.
    Your old skool stripes stand out for sure.
    Welcome.
    I got a shop I use to do what I don’t want to.
    I’m getting older and the floor is getting harder.
    Anywho his tech Brian is super meticulous I don’t like my truck being out of my sight.
    I trust him totally been dealing with them since 1988. I can ask if it is something he could do if you want.
    They are not hi tech but do great work at fair prices.
    :cheers:
