It's a 4wd truck, you're supposed to take it in the mud.

Just clean it off good after you're done and aslong as you don't do anything too crazy for your current setup you'll be fine.

yes you can pack bearings but be sure to do it right, and any mud will break a truck eventually, wash it off keep it clean is my best advise

If the truck isn't in your name, then it belongs to whomever is on the title. If that is your dad, and he says no to 4 wheeling, then you must respect his wishes. If you want to 4 wheel that badly, then go buy your own truck to do with as you please.

Just don't drive/ride it like a quad & you'll do fine, off roading is about 80% common sense & 20% vehicle, no shit , I've seen 4x's (including Toyotas) that are soooo tricked out, get soooo stuck because whoever was at the wheel was soooo stuck on stupid thinking that their truck was gonna do all the work, its a tool, a tool we all love but a tool just the same, like stated above ya gonna play ,ya gonna pay meaning you have to stay on it maintenance wise, clean your ride after playing & inspect it to see what damage you did & trust me you will damage shit, but you have to be diligent about it or sooner or later its going to take a shit on you, over something that will be minor that should have been tightened ,fixed, or replaced...

Still 10K that isn't his.

And I'm from Canada, that vehicle is worth 15-20 up here in beaver pelts.

I know the feeling youngtaco...My dad said no to off-road also. Even though I've payed for everything that's been done to my truck since I've had it (oil changes, shocks/struts, air filter, 90% of the gas, and soon, tires) but i don't really mud because i still don't want to piss him off. I might get some mud on it every now and again but I don't do anything too retarded because It's not my truck...yet.

Be reasonable..if he's very adamant about you not wanting to take the truck in the mud, then agree to his wishes.

However, if you can show him that you can take care of the truck (thoroughly cleaning it after your mudding trips, making sure your brakes, and undercarriage components aren't covered and caked with the stuff), he may allow you to continue.

If not..well, you have an ATV, IMO they're as much fun in the mud as a truck, and a heck of a lot easier to clean.
