December 20, 2004definately do some rustproofing......undercoating and all that good stuff. the change of scenery should be nice and the wheeling awesome though
December 20, 2004warm clothes, spare parts to repair truck from some awesome offroading
December 20, 2004I'd rather live in tx, but wheeling wise up here there are some decent trails and mud, "mainiacs" as they are known love wheeling and I know of a couple huge mud bogs in maine. Up north you have to watch out with lift laws, anything really high is illegal because whoever made the law is a complete idiot, I believe stunya on ftw is in the coast guard and in maine, he has a superduty v10 on 39.5's and a 15k winch, he wheels with us sometimes.
December 20, 2004Expect every single part that you replace to be the most frustrating thing in the world to take apart. Salt = rust. Rust = frustration.
Buy stock in liquid penetrating fluid.
December 22, 2004I lived in southern Maine for a while and yeh, the rust is bad. Real pretty country though. Not to hijack but here in Va its pretty bad too, monday mornin there was MAYBE 1/2 inch of snow , totally melted by the end of the day and cars were just covered with dried salt, I couldnt believe it... I grew up in Alaska and they never used much salt, but yet a salt/sand mix. Suprised the hell outta me comin here.
