Haha probably not considering the price of parts if anything breaks lol

I was really tempted to buy a FJ Cruiser for that purpose but I couldn't justify the plastic interior.

I'm down for some easy trails I drove it to Sumas Mountain and there's a gravel section that leads to a park that was pretty fun. I remember going in my IS350 and it was bumpy as hell, with the SUV it felt like tiny pebbles.

There's an area right behind Silvercity in Richmond my friend told me about but I haven't had a chance to check it out.

Thanks for the name, I remember he mentioned triangle something...He said it's pretty sweet at night, start a tire/camp fire and not get hassled.

Is it mainly hills or like a huge mud pit?

My suv is stock so I don't want to get stuck lol

you always have a chance of getting stuck and it's a lot smaller then it used to. But theres some mud/water sand. It's alright for what it is.

I haven't been there for a year but last time I went with Phil@rise and we had a massive tire fire with skidder tires cause companies used to dump them there and theres a shit ton laying around.

We had to stand back about 30' massive flames good times, good times.

Haha nice I'll check it out with some friends just in case I get stuck.

I did have a question though, if I was to drive into a large puddle and water/mud/dirt splashes up into my engine bay, wouldn't that harm the car especially if it gets the alternator/distributor wet?

Sorry for my newb question, I'm only asking because I remember driving through very heavy rain once, (not in a SUV but in a 4 dr sedan) and the car stalled and stopped running from going through a puddle.

a little splash should be ok, no different than driving in a big rain puddle.


more concerned about whether or not your breathers for diff, transmission and transfer case are located in higher places.

Anyone who takes an ML off road must have balls the size of coconuts, or at least a very large checkbook.

You could buy a decent bush truck for an equivalent cost to repairing a bit of damage done to an ML trying to take it off road.
