Caribou 6x6 in Quesnel may be able to help you.Had a great summer with the truck, made a few improvements and really put the old girl to the test..........she handled everything and asked for seconds.
I'll say it again, by far the best purchase I've made. People up here really get a kick out of this mean truck. It turns heads and they always smile.......chicks dig it too.
The truck and I went on a 4 day expedition along an old gold rush trail here in BC called the Whipsaw trail. A popular 4x4 destination. I really enjoyed the challenge of squeezing this old girl through trees, up and down mountain switch backs and climbing steep loose terrain. With these tires aired down to 18psi she performs better than the rest and with more style. The kraut UNIMOG's I wheel with were very surprised at what this "cookie cutter" truck can do. Nobody expected to see an old deuce up on them tight remote trails so their reaction alone was worth the trip.
I've made a lot of improvements to the truck this year including restoration of the bench seats, 12x4.5" LED off road lights 8 out front 4 for reverse for a total 26,400 lumen, custom cargo bulk head with light mounts, replaced the stock lights with H4's, and put on the tires. Up next I'll be painting her the standard NATO pattern, maybe this weekend.
-Air assist steering
-a couple of Detroits for the rear axles
-air shift t case
-The proper rims
-Cargo cover and bows
If any of my fellow SS can help me track down some of these items I would be in your debt as parts are not easy to find up here. maybe I'll make a trip down to one of your rallies next year.
It's Nice when you're Lucky (not an all-the-time thing)!I started by installing the winch, i did so by using my forklift to lift it up from the bottom.
I didn’t even need to loosen the bolts on the mounting brackets. Just a little finessing and in it went. Works great.
