Pearl Pass open to first cabin on right

We did a little recon work earlier this week and got to the first cabin on pearl pass.  We had to break through a number of snow banks before coming to the final one.  The last snow bank is soft deep and off camber so be prepared if trying to go further.

Little Annies Road

This time of year in the high country is especially awesome. A lot of the high country trails during the summer you can do in fairly stock SUV’s. This time of year you’re guaranteed to run into snow and get the recovery gear out. So we decided on Saturday afternoon to do a quick recon […]

Nitto Terra Grappler 285/75R17

Measuring just over 34 inches tall and around 11 inches wide you don’t rub like you would with 12.5 inch wide tires and the narrower profile carries considerably less weight so power loss feels minimal.

All Pro Bumper

I was to the point where my stock front bumper was held up with bailing wire and the cracks and clanking around from it was getting old so I began my search for a new front bumper for my 2007 FJ cruiser.  I combed through hours of looking at pictures online and reading reviews and […]
