Not much snow in Winterpeg compared to here. Must be nice.
Still 20" on the ground in my neck of the woods.

Yeah those stock tires suck. I have been out a few times and got stuck everytime except once. I wish we didn't have alot of snow and I would be going out too.

Don't all rangers come with skid plates?

i dont think skid plates are expensive anyway. but i want more snow i didnt get to do much snowmobiling this year. winterpeg went over a month with only getting 2cm of snow. thats ok though if there was more snow i wouldnt be able to go and play in as many places.

my next goal is to add skid plates to my truck as well. protecting the undersides of the radiator, oil pan and gas tank.

He's in Canada, they use kilometers there, not miles. He means 124 kilometers.

I started wheeling my 2WD truck stock, lol. I remember those days. She's changed some now though.

Your name reminds me of a wheeling buddy named Neil: he was lilbluefx4.

Nice pics, enjoy your wheeling!

A Canadian invasion? I thought that was an oxymoron?
