Yup. Climbed it in 3 wheel.
Well I've been MIA for a while. Sold my Yukon and picked up a Lada. Took it out to Whipsaw last year on its maiden voyage. Rough trip. Broke my rear axle on day 2 but kept going in 3wd. Day 2 alternator crapped out and needed a bush rebuild (starter was acting up also). Day 3 shattered my front diff on a rock and was pretty much dead in the water with only a 1 wheel drive. Towed it back to Nanaimo and tore it down. I managed to find a Lada for cheap which I'll be using for parts but that's back in Alberta so I am without a bush rig until I figure out how to get it to the island.
BC and Alberta recently signed an agreement where if a vehicle has been inspected in one province within a certain amount of time (can't remember the time 30-90 days) the other province will recognize it as being valid and thus not requiring a re-inspection. What I did was get an insurance inspection form that had the government of Alberta header and took that into ICBC saying the form is an official government of Alberta form and viola out of province inspection done. I'm sure it helped that the regulation was new and the agent probably wasn't that familiar with it but I'd try it again in a heartbeat.
Unfortunately my tire supplier has dried up and I am no longer able to get deals. I will work on lining up another supplier.
There are inspectors on this site. One at least. There is also a little known new loophole that I used when I brought my van over from Alberta. Where are you moving from? I'm in Nanaimo but I'll help however I can.
