Damn, wish there were trails like that here! Only swamps and dirt roads and few parks within a few hours. Nice pics!

I CANNOT WAIT to get out to Colorado and ride the trails! I will live there one of these days. Nice 4Runner!

I wana runner so bad and nice build op can't wait for what your gunna do next

Wishbone Runner 09-13-2012 10:09 AM

285 Duratracs are next on the list, trying to decide if I want to wait to have the funds for new wheels (Mickey Thompson Classic Locks) or go with spacers for the time being. I currently have 17" wheels, but would get 16" if I get wheels/tires at the same time, decisions, decisions . . .

I am kinda in the opposite boat. I love the runner, but am often space limited as I do a lot of camping/fishing/bike racing and haul around a ton of gear, so a Taco would probably better suit my needs. Still paying off the Runner, but once I am done and saved some cash for some mods, I will probably be looking for a '12+ DCSB Taco.

One feature that I love on the runner that the tacos do not have is the locking center diff. I run a lot of sandstone trails, like in Moab, that are basically like pavement and I can have the option of unlocking the center diff to make hard turns without worrying about stressing the diffs. I wonder how bad it is on the diffs when in 4 w/out a center diff, but most 4x4s dont have the center diff and do it all the time, so I am probably just over thinking it . . .

That's the nice part about 4runner reason I like them.

Wow! Awesome 4Runner & pictures.
I've got a '05 V8 Runner that is 100% stock and likely will stay that way until the wife decides on another vehicle. Then it's mine, all mine...(insert evil laugh)...

Nice rig and bike! I have been itching to go up to Moab for some wheeling and mountain biking for a long time

Nice pics! Id love to go to moab some day!

Where in CO are you? My wife and I are planning a trip through denver next spring and we want to hit up some offroad/mountain trails. NOthing too extreme, maybe some old mining sites or ghost towns and I dont know where to start looking. You can PM me if you dont want to clutter up your thread. :cheers:

No problem, I am in Arvada, which is west of Denver near Golden. Let me know, there are tons of trails out here, from tame to as hard as you want. Check out Trail Damage for a list and map of just about every trail in the state: http://www.traildamage.com/trails/index.php
