bigswede is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Headin your way.

Greetings from the Kansas chapter guys and gals. I`m heading up to Minnesota for vacation. I`ll be in the Mille Lacs area for a couple days then on to Duluth (I lived there when I was a kid.) Are there any 4x4 or off roading shops in the area? If "she" gets to do her shopping, I wanna do mine! Thanks!

I am not aware of any in the Mille Lacs area. Kind of a fishing/vacation area with the kind of shops that go with that sort of thing. If I find any I will post them here.

When will you be in MN?

You have no idea.. Came home to mid 90s for temps and our usual high humidity. Along lake superior we were wearing hoodies. Honestly, if it wasn`t for my girlfriend, I`d be moving back as fast as I could, but I`d likely have to sell my bronco since it`s modded and wouldn`t pass a strict inspection to get it tagged up there.

no emissions

thank goodness there are no inspections, with a 4 inch straight pipe and single shots, killing mosquitos is one of the nicest secondary benefits of my 7.3, that and having no tailgaters on my butt
