FINNALY!!!! luckly i got a very nice Christmas bonus and got word of a GREAT deal on studded snow tires at sears. so i ran down there. bought a set of Firestone Winterforce studded 265/70 16's for $470 studded, mounted and balanced.
the truck sticks to the ice rink roads like GLUE! i've kept the 400lbs of weight in the back and its a TANK now! i'm very impressed with the tires..the price was amazing and the traction is off the charts.
well i'll have some pics after this weekend. i'm taking the expedition down to seward,alaska for newyears. about 130miles each way and the weather is supposed to be pretty bad but we'll see. pics on sunday
well we made it safe and sound to Seward,Alaska. truck ran great! 3 adults, 400lbs of gravel in the back along with our luggage and crap. running in 4x4 the whole time i still got around 13.8mpg i was pretty surprised.
heading out...on the road again!
made it safe...took about 2 hours to go 135 miles
had to get some snacks
topped the truck off
explored alittle bit...found where there had been a few avalanches across the road.
at the hotel...nice holiday inn express
i'm heading down to the pool...so i'll update more tomarrow
The pics are great and the text reads sort of like "The Perils of Pauline" or a "Hardy Boys Adventure". You just HAVE to keep reading to find out what happened in this episode.
I keep waiting for the Exc. or the Expi. to get up close and personal with a bear.
