my father inlaw and i took my daughter sledding yesterday. i went to this place when i was a kid a bunch of times, but we never had anyone to pull drive us back up. its alot steeper than it looks especially walking. i certainly wouldnt be doing it now without the rhino or quad.

When I was a kid, my Dad would take us tobogganing on a similar hill.
We had to walk up each time and was exhausted and would overheat easily!
Being pulled up sounds great! I am sure you all had some fun rides!
Sorry to hear about the brake line ..more work huh..

i finally got my toolbox! been helping out the previous owner out on sidejobs for free for the past 6 months or so to gain experience on cars that arent 3800'*. he got a bigger box, and asked me if i wanted to buy it for what i had in my wallet. next thing i know, ive got a 6' tall box. gonna paint the red parts black and the black parts silver after i strip it. extremely happy right now.

If all the drawers move in and out with no binding(especially if they are rollers) and both keys are accounted for, I'd say its a $50-$75 setup used.

Finally, time for some new rims for my truck. I just ordered the XD-122 Enduro wheels in matte black at http://4wheelonline.com/XD_Wheels.67249. Any recommendation on the best AT tire that wears well? Thanks.
