    Where are you in Minnesota? I'm just south of the Twin Cities. Nice to hear of other Minnesotans out there!

    Hey guys !

    I'm from Hudson, WI and work in Roseville, MN.....where do you guys go wheeling ? You're right LoudandProud, Summer's over for another 6 months. I'm not looking forward to it once again, but that's why we live here....it's in our blood. Where is there a good 4 wheel drive shop around the cities ? One that carries a lot of products on site so I can compare and see what I'm buying ? Do you guys go to Dresser ? I haven't gone yet with the Blazer but I've went several times with other trucks I've owned. A 79 Chevy with 7" and 38's and my last one was a 74 Chevy with 15" and 40's. I'd like to find some places to go wheelin but not sure of any good areas yet, could you help me out ? I'll try and post some pics of my past rides for you guys to see.

    Hmmm, I haven't got a clue where to go wheelin'. I haven't gone yet. My Blazer I have is just a stock one, but I finally got a 90 Jimmy that is BIG, but its just a 5000lb paper weight right now. As for a 4x4 shop. I go to HOOZE 4x4, near where I live. I had my dual exhaust done there and I think they did a good job, LOUD. I've had other things done there too, u-joints and stuff, and I feel they do a good job and don't try to screw you. They have a bunch of lifted K5's there, so I love that place. They have some products in there to look at: shocks, tires, lift kits, ect. Its a brand new building that they built not too long ago. I drive by everyday and see all the awesome trucks they have there. If I ever get around to it, I will take some pictures of my 5000lb paper weight.

    Sorry about the pics, I forgot Steve had that turned off. I started a new post of my past rigs. While I'm posting here, do you guys recognize this Blazer ?

    I've never seen that one before, i don't think, but then again there are so many Blazers around here I don't remember them all. That one looks really cool though.

    It was owned by one of the guys who used to own Monster Truck Supply when it was over on White Bear Ave. by the Rainbow Foods right off of Hwy 36. They did a lot of things for the local 4 wheelin guys. They used to make real nice front and rear bumpers that you could take on and off so you'd be legal bumper height, but when you got to the mudhole, you could take it off in a matter of minutes with no extra tools needed. Just thought it might still be around or one of you may know him.

    Wow!! More Mn people ! I live in White Bear and work in Blaine. If you are looking for driveline work, try Universal Driveline in White Bear. My 87 Jimmy is all torn apart now, but it should be on the road again by spring so my Cavalier will have too get me thru the snow, which should start falling today.

    I'm in Apple Valley. I have a stock 86 K5 with no rust and only 85000 miles on the clock. There is some REAL MILD wheeling down here off of 35 and 185th. It's nothing tough but it's only 5 minutes away! I will probably be shopping at Burnsville Off-Road. They sell BDS lifts and the owner Dan McKaeg has had two of his trucks in past TTC competitions.(A viper powered Wrangler was one of them.) I also have a friend who had a 2000 Cherokke built up there and they did very nice work. Haven't been to Dresser yet but am hoping maybe next year.

    What do you mean by real mild wheeling ? I'd be interested in going some time.

    By real mild I mean it's just some hills and some dry creek beds. Nothing to get stuck in ar even get real flexed out. It's just a nice place with some easy little trails.
