You have to buy a "non resident" Recreation sticker, an ORV sticker and the vouchers are picked up the night before. They don't cost anything they just allow access to the parking lot since it gets busy on weekends.
Non resident can be bought at the park, ORV can be bought there, the numerous stores/gas stations and even Walmart over there if you stop and grab groceries. (Wait til you cross over to buy those and your booze, it's less of a hassle). I'm bringing some booze with that I know I can't get over there. They just ask if your consuming it in the states and you might have to pay duty. Most times they are lax though.
The flags you can also buy up there at the stores/gas stations.

Thats about all there is.

You only need vouchers for the weekend and we usually make a group trip the night before to the place to get them.
Last year, Me Maly and Aaron rode 3 deep in the front to get ours. hilarity ensured.

I'll most likely reserve it way before hand. I don't want to be ran out by the mountains of people on asparagus weekend.

BRING THE QUAD!!!!! or! I'll sell you one for cheap! If you buy the tires for $2000, ill throw in the quad for free!

Yea. I think Aaron did.

I feel like you used a similar sales tactic to try and sell me a ranger a year ago.

something about a bumper for 7k, with a free truck?

What are the chances that I could ask if anyone could find a part for me and bring it to the meet?

Short story: I want a manual transfer case and I'm not having any luck here.

Maybe I need to look harder

It just has to be a 1354M with the shift linkage. I guess I'll need a F150 boot to go with it.

I can get part numbers if that would help. I think there is a how to on here about what boot to use

I have a friend coming, hes currently building a single seat buggy with a bike motor. Will have either that or his argo. He has a 4x4 ranger but i doubt he will ride it.

-21C here this morning according to my OHC. Truck almost didnt start! (need that optima battery pretty soon i bet)


have a question. Im looking at a demo vehicle from ford as i work sales. Should i park the truck and link it, or just go leafs, better shocks up front, bedsides, cantilever rear shocks and a expo 8.8 w/ locker? Ill probably do bride seats too along with maybe a half cage.

it depends on how much you plan to use it,how hard,and how much you really want to spend. you can do a lot with a really nice tuned leaf setup like mine,mine still has room for improvement. links would be optimal for ride,and going real big. but also adds more in extra shocks and coilovers.

yea ill just stick with leafs. too much cash to link it properly and still use it as a DD. Wish i had the space to do more.

I sent STX a msg, but would anybody in east MI be willing to help me with shipping parts to them that i can go pick up to avoid duty and extra shipping cost?

the shops in BC keep bumping their price and not getting back to me, so id like to avoid them all together.
