Default Yooper Wheelin

For dose dat don't know much about the Superior State, dere's a couple of tings that need to be explained. First ting is, in da U.P., we don't explain tings. Second ting is, we got some of the best huntin' and fishin' in da whole world.
Quoted from Escanaba in da Moonlight.

But I'll explain a lil anyway, we went wheeling. There is a road in America, US 41 that is about 2500+ miles long. One end is in Miami, one end is in the UP of Michigan. We drove to the end(in Michigan), then continued another 15 miles... Out to the very tip. Here:



These pictures, 3 of the trucks were 4x4, my ranger is an open dif 2wd, lol. I'll post a link to the photobucket of the 123 some pictures and post my favs here.

My truck had clearance issues on here, so unless you all drive trucks... This was a road up here as well, it has been really dry recently though, so it was fairly clean. Just a lot of big rocks.

Haha, just about every truck is open dif, mine is just a 2wd, but it does enough for me. No need to lug around the extra 500lbs of 4wd when I hardly ever would use it.

lol, the Xterra doesn't have a whole lot of clearance. I'm pretty sure my ranger has more, especially with the 2" lift in front.
