    Default New member bringing a new vehicle into the forum

    Just found the forum when searching Google for some new places to explore. New to NH offroading, moved from ME not too long ago. Toyota 22re was my previous vehicle of choice, but I jumped when I saw the baby diesel in a sport oriented mid sized so I got a ZR2 to explore with. Through some lurking on the forum looks like a good group of people so I'm excited to learn some new spots.

    Cool

    Hello and welcome from another ex-Mainiac :)
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a big lift, wide mud tires, and a winch simply do not ;)

    Ha! The old 2.8 back in the day was such a pos, but I am sure the new one is much better....at least I hope for your sake :)

    The diesel reads like it would be awesome though, just sayin'

    Lol well to tell you the truth I've had some issues. Mostly emissions related, wierd how it all happened the first 7k miles, now for the past 7k it's been a dream and has some woken up after it did GMs little "break in". These new diesels have a f*kin redundancy of sensors everywhere. Once the warranty runs im planning on deleting the emissions which should rid most of the nuisance.

    Welcome to ENH! Sharp looking truck! I've been seeing more and more of these around and am really digging the new look and diesel drive train.

    If you're interested, we are running 2 days of Offroading 101 classes in mid September. It is a great place to not only gain new driving, offroading, and recovery skills, but to become more comfortable with your vehicle offroad. It is also a great opportunity to meet fellow ENH members! http://exploringnh.com/home/off-road-101-class-session/

    Sorry for the late reply but thank you for the heads up. Unfortunately due to work I'm far away usually in the Fall. But I look forward to checking out the pictures and hope to make the next one if it fits the schedule. Maybe summer time?

    Default Sick Truck!

    Hey, I have the same Truck! Wish I opted in for the diesel, but the ZR2 is a monster nonetheless.

    I was wondering if you have any good recommendations on spots to bring it, it has 2000 miles and itching to taste the dirt.

    Best
