Great pics, It's been a little while since I've been out that way. I covered pretty much everything interesting from the Nanaimo side (Englishman ML) this year. Girlfriend and I are planning to head out towards Nahmint Lake again soon, you're welcome to join us!
If we're talking $15k+ trucks I'd suggest a 2010 or newer Frontier Pro-4x. Nissan had the worst of the issues worked out by late 2009. They have the largest stock tires of all the midsize trucks, room for even bigger tires, decent gearing to turn said tires, not much hanging below the frame rails, good traction control system, locking rear differential, decent Bilstein shocks and skid plates, beefy roof rack and bed rail system. They are comfortable trucks with a ton of nice features, great for long trips and such. The 4.0L V6 is responsive and powerful but fairly thirsty.
I've had my 2010 for five years now and wouldn't hesitate to buy another. Much happier with it than the 2006 Tacoma it replaced. Same things apply to the Xterra if it's an SUV you're looking for.
Pretty cool, would love to see the end result.
Here's some inspiration:
Could always pay your respects at the two WWII era plane crash sites in the area. One is near Flora Lake, it went down in the early hours of November 10th, 1944 with 10 fatalities. The other is on Mt. Bolduc, it crashed April 25th, 1944 with 6 fatalities. In both crashes, the men were actually buried on site and the wreckage remains.
Very cool, rig is looking good!
