Thread: Wasucaly Samurai

    Yeah I wouldn't want to drive it much on the highway. LOL I have, and it sucked.



    I plan on replacing the motor. More power would be nice.



    I had a bronco before this, and with gas prices going where they are I'm much happier with the smaller rig. Though I've had to get creative with storage options. I've got more to do yet, but I think I'll have plenty of room. I find its opened a lot of trails up to me that larger rigs just cant get into.



    It will be nice come summer when the snows melted off. I've got lots of trails I've previously been unable to get into. Even Toyotas scrape getting in on them, a full size is a no go at all.

    Now with the kids grown up, I need a landcruiser to carry their stuff :-P
    I thought the design was familiar, here in Aus, but couldn't remember the badge name.

    That would be so awesome Jeff. That area just seems so serene.
    I've never met a body of water I didn't like

    Gorgeous area as always. Except summer this is usually a very remote place, today was no exception. We saw one car all day, and him and his dogs stayed to the lower areas.



    Like much of the region this time of year the rivers are flooded, and the higher mountains are loaded with snow.



    Much to our dismay, none of the roads were passable. WE SURE TRIED THOUGH! We broke snow on many drifts, but were still unable to get through. Sorry for the next guy that sees tire tracks and thinks he can make it!LOL







    This time of year water gushes from everywhere!












    So can we go here? Looks way cool!
    And shepherds we shall be for Thee my Lord for Thee, Power hath descended forth from Thine hand that our feet may swiftly carry-out Thy command, And we shall flow a river forth to Thee and teeming with souls shall it ever be, For Thee my Lord for Thee.

    We've got lots of water like that, you'd love it. I'd like to get into some river kayaking myself someday.

    Yeah it's a bit further out, but we certainly can if you want. Too bad the snows so low, I know tons of cool places around.

    Yup, awesome rig Jeff!
    What a cool looking place, I'm loving my motorbike for those solo trips to places like that, I can still carry a fair amount of gear and it's less likely to get stuck while being easier to recover if it does.

    I had a LWB Vitara (Sidekick), 1600cc 4 cylinder, lifted 2" all round and 31x10.5 BFGoodrich All Terrains.
    Very basic but it got places that bigger more kitted trucks didn't.
