Nope they shouldn't hassle u at all, as long as it's clean! You wil be turned around if u have a muddy rig (importing foriegn organisms) or something like that, happened to a few guys coming back from reiter, so give it a good wash first

Only one way to find out, let us know! :D

Nelway border is easier then Waneta, friends get hassled all the time going south on that one. You going to head to Priest lake from Sullivan lake? Done it in the winter on sleds years ago, go for beers at the Nordman, good place!

As far as the half doors are concerned I have driven across multiple times with no doors and never been talked to about it. So GL lets hear how it works out.

Like said above, watch out for dirt. I've been asked at least a dozen times "is that US or Canadian mud?" because they'll turn you right around until you find somewhere to wash it off (got a place in Birch Bay so I'm back and forth across the border about 3 or 4 times a week).

I've also been pulled over in Washington for not having mud flaps (only 4.5" lift with all-terrain tires, too); no ticket but that's supposedly because he "just had too much paperwork to do."

We went there vlast week. The crossing was slow as hell till we got to the gate. Only question I "failed" was why I needed such a large truck. It's a crew cab duellie, no lift or nothing. Gave us the little yellow slip and off to inspection we go. 2.5 hours later, and 2 hours late to pick up the girl at seatac, they let us go.

thats b.s.......




borders are gay.. a younger guy i know went through the border with a new superduty and they looked at him and said ''how do you afford this'' then the dogs got to trample all over his brand new leather seats...:mad:

Last two times I've crossed the border I've either had the guy stab at my interior with a screwdriver or ask me the most absurd and generic questions. "who are you visiting?" "where do they live" "what does the person do for a living?" "do they have any family" and then hiding my passport against his chest "what is the address of the person who owns this passport". I mean seriously, it's been my fucking address for 23 years, and why the hell do you care what my friend in Seattle whom I'm visiting for 2 nights does for a living.

funny thing is thats at pacific border crossing. When I lived in the kootenays and crossed near creston never had any problems and it never took more than a minute to swipe my passport and send me on my way.

If the half doors are closed off and they cant see inside Id see em having a problem if they dont know ya. Sealed half doors would make a nice pocket to hide some [stoned]

I went down once for lunch, was in a town in bc about 30 min from the town in idaho, they pulled everything that was bolted down out, opened up my aircleaner and everything because they didnt see why I would go down to the casino for lunch:confused0006: They about snapped when they saw my passenger window didnt open, there all what ya hiding in there. I said its a hyundai nothing works right lol.

They ended up putting everything back even bolted my spare back in.
