Lightfighters Taco II

Hello all.

I had an 06 prerunner TRD, loved it. But I run some trails locally and generally just me, my GF and a couple dogs, and I kept getting a nagging feeling than I would end up stuck, since the trails are generally not tough but have alot of scree fields and pretty slickery sandstone on steep climbs.

Enter a good interest rate and a couple grand off, throw in some free extras, and I'm back in a 4x4 for the first time since i wrecked a pretty spectacular Jeep buildup and swore off fourwheeling for economic reasons. Ya, right. sure i swore it off:

my 2010 TRD OR:





I debadged it, moved the trailer plug, not worth pictures. ditched the flaps, and got the dealer to swap my BFG all terrains off the pre.

Snooped around here for a while and decided I liked the sliders and light bar avid offroad is peddling. A couple emails back and forth with Brandon at Avid(thats him below), a trip to Queen Creek and the sliders are welded on, the lightbar is in the garage, waiting to be painted.

Well at least you got a sweet t-shirt out of the deal.

Hmmm, must have been a slow day in the welcome department... lets try this again!

WELCOME TO TW! (see if bumping this wakes anybody up)

Welcome to TW! Glad to see you are still in a Taco and back to wheeling, even if it's mild. Got any pics of the jeep, or at least details?

Thanks... I have been into building as much if not more than wheeling pretty much all my life. Not afraid to use and abuse the stuff, so much as just never really found the time to get out(with groups anyway, so whatever i do has to be solo managable). Besides i love the "engineering of it" and the capability, even if i dont push too hard.

The last(of 6)jeep, was a 99 TJ:



4.o
AW4 auto tranny from a grand cherokee
Atlas transfer
Locked dana 44's at both ends
3 inches of lift
on board air
cant remember the name of the stupid expensive bumber, but they rocked.
M416 trailer painted to match.

Loved that jeep. After the insurance company paid out, i bought it back from them and parted it out to end up recovering $18000 of the $16000 I had in it. Just didnt feel like doing it again. bought another motorcycle instead. that was about 4 years ago. But I guess im back.

Never pull out in front of a saturn doing 60mph. Its a bad call, I'm just sayin'. And in case you are wondering what a "just barely totalled TJ" looks like:
