I only rode an atv up there once and it was a blast. So much fun I bought one a few weeks ago.

I went up to Wisconsin a couple time on the four wheelers. It's fun but not nearly as fun as a snowmobile.

I have a Yammi Grizzly 700FI mostly at my disposal.

It kicks ass.

It's a mix of mud and trail, just like snowmobiling there. The mud and water can be avoided most of the time but of course I can't resist hence the video shots of my Wheeler submerged (and still running) under water.

Change the tires. They SUCK in the snow if those are the 20 inch rims.

Which model? Year? Miles?

Sadly, yes.

As I was cleaning it out I found the receipt from when I bought it, 3/18/05, almost 7 years to the day I traded it in.

Nice, low miles. I bought mine with 16k. I wish I had the crew cab but don't have 4 people in the truck often if ever.

Does it have the 4spd of 6spd trans? That is the other thing I wish I had... the 6spd auto.

I wish it had a 6 speed, these big trucks need it.

And I thought you did the smart and practical thing and bought the whole dealer ship so you could drive what ever was smart and practical on any given day!

Got about 200mi on it so far, finally figured out that if I let off the gas for 1/2 a second I can "manually" put it into 4cyl mode on the highway.


Someone likes having a fullsize window to look out of in the backseat.

The programmers supposedly allow the truck to stay if 4cyl. mode longer and don't switch in and out for every little rise in RPMs. I thought about getting one but want to see real world numbers on mpg gains.
