I would venture to say a double post, except that this one, is slightly different than the first... Too many wobbly pops tonight before posting huh...

Have you asked this question at Funinbc.com?

The service roads by chilliwack are pretty good. You wont find the kind of wheeling you had up north though unfortunatly.

I like heading North in behind Shuswap Lake.Seymour Arm area.Lot's of country back there,and it offer's every kind of off roading you want.And ton's of camping as well.

Stick to paved road then. Because anything this time of year is going to be mud &/or Snow.. Second Alt? then the problem probably isnt the alt, it is probably a short somewhere, causing yoru alternator to burn out.

What is your truck?

I have a '92 F250 with a 7.5. im pretty sure its cause of the water. i put a dixie from premium in a couple weeks ago, and then i went boggin at the end of 64th on wednesday and the whole truck was covered. and then tonight the dixie died and i bought a rebuilt bosch from lordco, checked my grounds and wires leading from the alt. and everything seemed fine. unhooked the positive battery wire and the truck died. replace the alt and everything is fine. there was lots of mud under the hood so i just figured that it got soggy.

That should not kill an Alternator that quickly. I usually buy mine from Pick a Part in chilliwack.. Bosche shouldn't let you down, LordCo is pretty good about replacing it if it does crap out..

I would still suggest you checking out FuninBC.com or BB.BC4x4.com both are dedicated to Offroading in BC, primarily the LML.
