Hi....from Edmonton

Currently looking to buy a rig....preferably a Chev/GMC squarebody truck or k5 jimmy/blazer

Also interested in finding good wheeling spots. Not too many close to Edmonton that are legal to wheel...

You can go wheel at the Total Offroad Experience by Stony Plain. Other than that you're headed West out into the mountains or North West to Fort Assiniboine. Not much else in the area which is public land you're free to wheel on.

morning

Morning!

Well I used the search button and found the check in as to not bring up any new threads. From the Red Deer area. Just bought a 1996 dodge 2500 with Dana 60 front and 200 mm rear (can't remember if that's a 60 or not). Sadly not a diesel so the mosquitoes have a bit longer to live lol. Has the 360 magnum engine. Currently I have the truck parked and in rebuild mode. Needs way too much to be able to get it on the road in a decent amount of time. It was actually a rescued from a farm near where I live.

Would anyone happen to know of a place that sells second gen dodge stuff that's at a reasonable price? or not sold within 30 minutes of it going up for sale?

Count me in from Edmonton as well. Gotta get the ol Waggy back on the road. Either fuel injection on the old 360 or replace it with an LS. no close places to wheel around Edmonton...Prairie Creek south west of Rocky Mountain House, Pembina Forks South of Edson or up to Grande Cache.

Another from Edmonton area and have been lurking for awhile as well. I was into the drag racing thing for a long time and finally decided to slow down and enjoy the scenery a bit more. I have a pretty much stock 15 Rubicon and a 09 Rhino.
Hope to get out a couple times this winter with the Jeep if I can. So if anyone is looking for someone to tag along for some mild to moderate 4x4ing I'd be in.

Fort Mac here. All the Muskeg doesn’t make for particularly great off-roading up this way. Most my wheeling is done after freeze-up.

2005 Dodge 2500 Powerwagon on 35’s for me.

Need to build a light weight buggy on 50+ inch low pressure tires like all those Russian videos on YouTube. That would take care of all this Muskeg...

Oh, and “Hi”! First post for me after being a lurker for years...

Edmonton area checking in

2012 power wagon with some stuff done to it. Powertrain just has a few bolt in’s but suspension is pretty modified using the majority of Thuren fabrication spec shocks and parts with some other large components custom built. Front is currently strapped at 10” of wheel travel with. 3.5” internal bypass king shock and the rear is leaf sprung with approx 18-19” of wheel travel using atlas long travel leafs designed by Thuren fab and 18” 3.0 quad bypass king shocks.

Usually run at higher speeds but I can still go slow too. Driveline is 5.13 gears with a factory e locker front and ARB air locked rear. The rear axle was trussed and swapped from a 2012 1 ton diesel so it is the larger 11.5” aam just so I could run the 5.13’s.

37” Toyo MT’s on trail ready World Series ringed bead locks.

Does very well for its size (roughly 8000lb... maybe more...)

Thanks.

Not many places around Edmonton where you can legally wheel. Unless you want to go to TORE you are going to have to head west to the foot hills, there are some nice areas around Hinton and Rocky Mountain house which is where I usually go, only a 2 (ish) hour drive.

That’s the beauty in a Flat fender Willys, they are not much wider than a side by side and and ride most Jeep or OHV trails with ease.
