Big thanks to Luis for being our trail guide yesterday. Mark, It was great to hit the trails with you and your truck still has me drooling. James, thanks for holding back while I deal with my tire issues and Edgar, nice pictures man. I'm glad you snapped them.

Overall, just an awesome time! Learned a ton about where my truck has opportunity for improvement.
1. Full leaf pack and spring over kit. These blocks have got to go!
2. Icon coilovers for Tacomas with Procomp "6 up front and
I will have to research to find out if the remote reservoir shocks or if the 2.0 Aluminum series is the way to go.

Great pics and looks like it was a lot of fun. Good job on the new sig Jon.

Pretty sweet collection of trucks on this run. I'm digging Mark's 35's with no flares look. :drool:

There is so much more about Marks truck that is drooltastic... fully locked, LCA & UCAS done, geared, armored... the list keeps going. If only I had 10g free to mod out mine.... :cool:

that's the 3rd time Ive heard they closed the hills at Butcher Jones but we didn't see one sign or Ranger. I really think that the area that is closed is the cove way back where all the parties happen, much further then where we were at.
