    Deuce insurance in b.c Canada

    I can only imagine owning a dice is like owning a unimog. MOSS Imports in Langly probably have a good idea. I know he is an avid adventurer driving up rivers on hunting trips. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

    This unfortunate story shows an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. If your not sitting on the side of the road your chances of getting messed with are much lower... Take care of all the window dressing and you are less of a target. I always make sure the easy stuff like lights...

    So just a couple comments. I bought all the components new save a couple of pics of threaded pipe, and a pice of aluminum to mount it to. I'm in the whole thing about $330.
