    2WD or 4x4 through South America?

    I have the KO2's on my Ford Transit van and before that had them with my truck and camper. LOVE the extra traction that they give you!! As for noise I am a VERY sensitive person to any noise in the vehicle and I can say the noise is not noticeable at any speed. At higher speed you have a...

    Astro (Safari): The perfect platform?

    I looked for a while for an Astro (Safari) but with no luck in finding one that should not already have been in the scrap yard.

    FOUND Vans For Sale!

    This may be good as the location that much snow is possible, the plates are from BC Canada but the listing is for Saskatchewan and the phone number is Saskatchewan.
