yeos yota

I picked up my 2011 Access Cab TX TRD two days ago after trading in my beloved 2009 STI I had for 4 years. The truck suits my lifestyle better now that I hunt and have a boat. The 94 Pickup will be let go soon as well. Now let the modding begin!


The original BFG Rugged Trails were still good at 5/32, but it was too close for comfort for me knowing I drive up to the mountains often. I had a set of Cooper Discoverer ATP 265/75/16 installed and they fill up the fender well better than the original 265/70/16s did. I chose the Coopers because I've had the AT3s on my 94 Pickup and they have been solid. I have been told that the ATP and AT3 are the same tire carcass, but with a slight tread difference and the ATP is a discount tire exclusive.

Mods:

Cooper Discoverer ATP 265/75/16
Bullet Proof Fabricating front skid plate
Bullet Proof Fabricating HD recovery tow hook
BakFlip G2 tonneau cover
Bilstein 5100 shocks
Wheelers progressive add-a-leaf

Thanks!

I scored a set of used weather tech front floor liners locally. The seller also had a nice tool box that I was considering, but I'm on the fence about that or a bakflip bed cover. Decisions decisions.

Headed up FS70 in Greenwater today. The yota did great. The F350 needed assistance.










We also had a stalker today. Sounded like a dog at first and it was very close, but upon further investigation we decided to get our tree and hightail it out of there just to be safe. Was it a wolf?
