nothing big enough to eat in Davis. It is a fun lake to relax in a small boat and drink. No motors are allowed in Davis

Just wondering if any of you guys know anyone whos look buying some all terrain tires?

I have a set of 5 brand new, never mounted BFGoodrich TA KOs for sale. They are 285/75/16 and have a E rated load rating. Good set of all terrains for someone looking for a more rugged/off-roading tire. Looking to sell as a set of 5; 4 + 1 spare

Looking to sell for $1350. Bought from the states not including taxes. Just looking to get my money back.

It's hard to tell from your pics because I'm on my phone (no Internet at home) but if you were on the mamquam and didn't take any of the side roads you eventually hit a fork in the road right by the river, awesome spot to have lunch hahah. The road I'm talking about starts at the climbers parking lot by the chief.

Ahh I see, pretty sure that's the stawamus/Indian fsr off the mamquam fsr, we actually went right at the fork, we went past 10km I'm pretty sure in 2wd the whole time. That's where the
snow was haha

Yeah I was up higher too on other trails in the area and there was no snow. Maybe there's lots of shade on that part of the trail, I wish I was on a real computer so I could post a pic, it was pretty neat haha

In other words, don't stray off the well-beaten track

Ummm my truck is on 33's and locked in the rear and less than 2" of lift, I made it through the first 2 tricky parts but we turned back after that. So yeah, I'm not sure if your taco would make it as I'm not sure what sorta rig would do or how much harder it gets past where we went. Mostly rock crawling, locked is a must and a spotter really helps for sure haha. When are you thinking of heading up? Mind if I tag along? I'd like to take another wack at it
