Re: Help me!

The laws vary by state, but I think most states allow 35" tires. Many times there is a limit on how many inches of lift you can have, which in turn, limits how big your tires can be.

homologous ones translate and to introduce to the office of the civil
motorization for the re registration of the vehicle.

Re: Help me!

They say Alaska has laws about such things, but ain't never seen them enforced. I know of several street driven rigs with 44s.

Re: Help me!

about the only time I EVER saw it enforced was in fairbanks and a couple of those moose buggy contraptions were driving down the road. (Hugemongos non DOT terra tires and such) I am pretty sure they got nailed for driving a non-registered vehicle. Sucks though, do you really think you want to pay a couple hundred greenbacks for the privelage to use that thing once or twice a year???

They were cool though, there was two of them at mount prindle when I was hunting there, mobile camps that would go anywhere and were VERY comfortable (considering)

Re: Help me!

LOL, yeah, moose buggys are cool. Down on the Kenai Peninsula, they are a favorite of guys bombing in to the Caribou Hills. Cool as they are though, I think a nodwell with a 3208 CAT in it would be the ultimate for hunting/camping/off-roading (especially muskeg)....been trying to convince myself NOT to buy one that a pilot buddy has for sale in Nenana.....for $6k!!!!

BTW I notice you have your jeep on the Jeep Alaska site. Cool. Been many of the places shown there, though bombing out the beach by Grey cliff isn't my thing. Any beach on the Kenai Peninsula/Turnigan Arm/Knik Arm is a good way to lose a rig. Got a buddy that has a place out Grey Cliff.....Corky Hagar....Guy's got a lot of jeep parts. Done some trading with him in the past and hope to do some more.

If you decide to come up the valley way, let me know ahead of time, and maybe we can get togeher. I'm gonna be on the Peninsula this weekend, but I'll be driving the 7 not the 5. Just gonna run out to the end of Mystery Creek and do a bit of bird hunting. One of the guys I work with, his father owns the cabin on the island at the end of the road. Should be a great time.

Re: Help me!

i would think italy would have the same types of construction equipment on their roadways that the US has, i.e. cranes and dump trucks that run ~52" tires. this baffles me as to why they would not allow larger tires on jeeps. the rubicon is stock with 31's so why would you not be allowed to mount them on another tj?

Re: Help me!

Nodwells are very cool.... You could build a couple ramps and just drive that jeep right up onto the bed, good to go!

I am in Ketchikan now, so I won't be in the anchorage area for a year or two again, but depending on how road worhty the jeep is in a year, I am considering driving it up the highway again when I go back to trade school.
(The last drive home from Fairbanks to haines was a *stressful* one in the jeep!)

I will definately look you up though if I make up your way!
