after hearing some interesting wheeling in AK stories i got a snorkel to avoid any future problems, it has saved my butt once or twice.

this was shortly after putting it on, during my attempt at rounding up a fine charlie brown christmas tree

after getting into some more snow "fun" i realized a hi lift and strap were not going to cut it so i picked up a winch and made myself my first bumper out of a hefty piece of 1/4" channel. i figured why not have something nice and stout for alaskan winter driving, around the same weeks i picked up my bushwacker fenders and installed them as well

after winter began drawing to a close i was in a hurry to ditch my grabbers (which i had since studded and siped for snow/ice) and picked up a set of bf goodrich km2's for a fair price from the base tire shop this is right after i got them on out having some fun at knik river, also subsequently the last time i ever went "mudding" (lesson learned installing my lift later on)

You guys on the mainland have so much stuff available to you. Looks like it should be a fun project!
