Thank you manucha0!

On the Subie, there are four "strap" anchoring points rated at 150lbs so I had a local welding shop build me an Al frame that would anchor those anchoring points after the brackets were removed. I drove without a fairing to start with but that was like pushing a giant 'shoebox' down the road so back to the welding shop. We made an Al fairing that slides on the frame so it is removable with just a few screws. This set up made a HUGE improvement and I can't tell that there is a RTT on top.

Dempster is a great road to take as it is less traveled by big trucks and you have to cross the river twice by a ferrry (free) that sort of makes it cool. Wildlife is abundant including grizzlies that makes it interesting when they don't want you to pass them on the road. There is one service station, Eagle Plains, midway and its a must to stop to fill up. Once you arrive Inuvik, its a small little town with a great and must eat place named "Alestine's". The road to Tuk had just opened when we drove out there so it was very spongy and at times a bit difficult to navigate. Tuk was not totally ready for tourism but can only guess that has changed by now. Stay a few days in Dawson City before and after the journey to Inuvik as it is a cool gold rush town basically in the same shape as during the gold rush.

Not sure how you will travel but if you get a chance, take the "top of the world highway" from Tok via Chicken to Dawson City.

Most of all - Have fun!

Sounds like you had a great adventure to PB. We had initially planned to go up there too but decided against it based on amount of trucks and then not be able to freely enjoy the arctic ocean. Tuk is a small First Nation community so you have the chance to meet and listen to their life and living (which is very interesting) in addition to have full access to the AO.


If and when you decide to go, let me know and I will be happy to provide some additional info about cool places to visit if you so wish.

Any pics of the CB setup
I don't believe that I have any actual pics of the set up up. In short, the antenna was attached to the Al frame (made for the tent to mount to) by a round Al post sticking out just enough so the antenna could be mounted and not to become a risk to anyone walking by. I ran the coax through the rear hatch and then under the inside side covers up to the back of the center console. I grounded the antenna to one of the mounting screws for the rear hatch bolts and then measured to make sure good grounding throughout. The only occasional concerns were when entering low areas (garage etc) as the antenna could potentially hit 'things'.

I had the Cobra CB standing on its rear and secured it to the console with a combination of a strap and velcro. The power came from the fuse box and I had no issues with 'whining' noise etc. Given the height and location of the antenna, I had great reception. Initially I had a separate speaker but decided to remove it as the sound was good without it.

Hope this helps.

Agréable!
Configuration d'échappement intéressante. Voulez-vous nous dire ce que vous en avez fait et des extraits sonores?
Merci!
