off road adventure

Ive been kind of an in active member just looking for info to improve my little 76 cj-5 I use like a quad on steroids. I use it for accessing the back country of western Alaska. it has 33x15.50 x 15 tires and a lincon locker all power steering has been stripped , gas guzzling v8 removed and replaced with a big 6. it gets around quite well in our short summers, my question my main mode of transportation around here is by snow cat's during the winter I own 2 one snow trac st-4 vw powered and the other is a Thiokol 2100 diesel power. I know this is a jeep forum would you all have any intrest in some of my snow cat adventures into the back country of western Alaska in the winter

I spent many years working on hagglunds while working for the Alaska national guard I prefer the older riggs like the st-4 and thiokols they are simple and reliable. my 2100 is in route on a boat should be here this weekend at 15 feet long and 12 feet wide it's a real monster

the jeep is a summer rig you don't want to take tracks built for soft terrain like snow across the rocks in river beds in the summer. but in the winter tracked vehicles are the way to go the Thiokol 2100 groomer has made it as far as bethel should be here early next week

Heres the pics of the Haaglunds. This was a training we were at with a couple other fire departments and a power company. We use these in the winter when we cant get our ambulances in to patients. They are perfect for what we use them for.

a lot of folks like the bv 206 as a former military mechanic with 17 years of experience of working on them there are many reasons there is not one in my fleet. they do have their advantages as they truly are an all terrain vehicle and do not require oversized permits to transport
