What happens when a close to 6000 lb Blazer tries the same thing as a jeep?
Answer: you don't "float" over the top of the snow...
We had plenty of fun on some tight trails, visited a ghost town, abondoned mines, and some mountain tops. I was a great time!
Embarassing, I know. I could have used the winch, but the jeep was more convenient...
I thought you were going to say look at the left of the jeep in the first pic......
No reason to wimp out and take the easy route!! In to the deep stuff we went...
Where did you guys go? Looks like you had a blast!!
My wife and I went out into the Pintlars (south of Philipsburg) w/ the Skyliners. My truck isn't done so we rode in my dad's stock 03 Rubicon.
It was an awesome time
We were in the Little Belts. Went up to Monument Peak, Daisy Springs (you probably won't find the names on a map, but they are listed w/BLM) and then across the ridge until we hit 89. We hit Hughesville (ghost town) and checked out the mine. The snow is passable in most spots, although we had 2 trucks going the other way that told that we would never make it through...yeah right, sounded like a challenge! We made it everywhere we wanted to go!
It's 110* here and you gotta go and show pics of snow????
Needs more HP! then the tires will "float" you over the top. Or break parts, which ever comes first.
It's usually the latter... the last time I went out playing in the snow I had a LOT of horsepower goin', and I just sank and popped a driveshaft
Last years Frounteer (Helena MT) Fathersday Event. Should be a bunch of snow up there again this year
I second that Mike. The engine is strong (rebuilt in March) and I'm nursing a weak rear driveshaft, waiting for the HAD to be delivered!
I wheeled in snow every month last year. I actually tried to stay away from it...but the mountains kept it through the year.
They sure do. Here is the top of the North Medow Creek trail in Aug last year. It sure is beautifull up there!
