    Anyone heard of an SUV called a \"Grizzly\"?

    It's supposed to be from Canada. It's bigger than a Ford Excursion. I couldn't find it with Google.

    Re: Anyone heard of an SUV called a \"Grizzly\"?

    A Grizzly was a truck company , custom built drive train to order. (gas , diesel 4X4 etc.)
    IIRC it was mainly for industrial type customers (oil rig , pipe line work , etc). I even remember it being offered with 10 GA body panels /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif,but i can't remember what truck they used for a base , or if it was their own??
    BTW this was around the end of the 80'S , I don't recalll seeing anything about them since (out of business?? , very expensive??)
    Or where it was , possibly British Columbia
    Thats all I can remember about them.
    Mabey someone else knows more?

    Re: Anyone heard of an SUV called a \"Grizzly\"?

    I didn't see it, my roommate saw it it Scottsdale, AZ. He said it was an suv that was bigger than a Hummer. I thought I remembered seeing something in a magazine about them, and there was a TV commercial for some other product(insurance I think) where this guy is bragging about it being the biggest suv there is and he ends up trashing his garage because it doesn't fit. I'm not sure that it's the same thing, but I was hoping someone might know about a web site.

    I am a little disapointed by the slew of attacks from people. This used to be a much friendlier place to hang out. I think the "old timers" know what I'm saying. It's not that I can't take the heat, I just think that the whole stream of people jumping on the "Bash the Stoner" train is just lame. Oh what a foolish proppaganda beliving bunch of SHEEP /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif. I'm not even the first target for these train jumping bashers having fun at the expense of others that I've noticed since I've been back. It's kinda sad to see this kind of thing happen to what was a friendly place. I did want to say thank's to those with something usefull to say /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif.
