Most definitely.. I'm looking at a Zeon-10, but may go with a Superwinch - we'll see. I definitely like the idea of a Warn.

Here's another trip from this past summer - there's been one other, but I still have to dig up the photos from it. I'll see what I can find..

Spillway - an hour and a half out of Drayton Valley, its controlled by Brazeau Dam. Water crossings are generally illegal, however due to the nature that it is a dam, there is no wildlife in the water and it makes for legal crossings.

I'm that guy.. I figure if there's someone to pull me out, I may as well try.

One of my favorite trips so far though. Beautiful weather - I'm pretty much bald, and I should have put some sun screen on the top of my head. I was pretty burnt after that trip.

But really - wheeling in the snow is a good time. You stay relatively clean, but you can't see what you're getting into either. The best part is though.. take any environment, any trip and you can basically do it again each season and it's completely different. I love it.

Nice winch. What bumper do you have?

I don't purposefully go as deep as possible, but if a crossing comes up I'd rather be safe than sorry - so the snorkel made sense. A lot cheaper than a hydrolocked engine.

But this is where the fun really begins..

But safety first. And a taste of what's coming -

Front and rear bumper, plus a new drivers side fender.

Image

I was tired of doing fenders, figured I'd do the rear bumper quickly just to get it done and have a change of pace. The bolts for the factory tow point were hell to get off, snapped the welds using the wrench and ended up grinding the rest off. The old bumper - cut up and ragged looking.

Image

New brackets

Image

Installed

Image

Front bumper looked easy enough - still didn't have the top plate though.
