I got the wife to drive the 4runner around today too with it in crawl control. She made it up a part that a modified Jeep couldn't get up with backing down 3 times. Thought it was pretty funny.

I only saw one other Tacoma up there. A blue lifted one with black wheels. Couldn't tell if they were form the site. When I went up to their truck, they were out walking around somewhere.

Here are some from today. I wanted to get some flex pics that somebody was asking for earlier this week. Front tire was just a hair off the ground here. Rear tires still had contact.





Same shot, different angle.



Crawl control enabled. Two wheeling for a couple seconds but the crawl control kept her chuggin up the hill.



Front tire off the ground.









Here you can see the mud caked up into the stock skid plate. Skid plate is getting trashed once I get to California. So sliders and a skid palte are next on the list.



Crawl control enabled works just as good going downhill.



Last incline of the day before heading home.

Nice, I am suprised that there was still that much mud up there.. Now I wish I would have went whale watching a different day. If you have not done it yet I suggest you do get some killer pics, the ITT MWR office has some huge discounts for the family to. Sick pics though.. That crawl is gettimg more and more tempting might have to invest in another toy when I get back from deployment. How were the waves at North Shore? Heard it was supposed to be 25ft faces...

We got to the north shore about 2 hours before high tide so the waves were dying down. At some spots it was still about 10 feet but earlier some guys were saying it was 12-15' at sunset beach. It was rough out there today.

We went whale watching two years ago and we might go after I get back from California in March. We had a great time seeing some whale tail!

Was inspecting the truck today and realized I ripped the electrical connector for my trailer hitch off somehow. What a shitty place they put that thing especially as it's all plastic. Looks like K Point is giving me a good excuse to upgrade to an All Pro bumper... I'll post pics soon!

There are alot of lifted tacomas here with really wide wheels and wide tires. It's their money so I dont knock em for it. As far as trails on this island...wish there was more. I saw alot on Kauai when I was there.

yup pulled out an F250 that was buried in the big mudhole

un hooking after only a few minutes of yanking on the truck

the 35 in tires were buried and she was high centered flexed out

every vehicle in the group was stuck which is why I got the call

Alright so I got the call on Sunday night bout 1130 all 3 were stuck. They called the Taco that they always talk smack on to come get them out.. Oh what carma. Rack one up for the TACO's.. Really wanted to go out with the rest of you on Sunday but had other obligations. Ended up going anyway just alot later than I wanted. But hey any opportunity to pull out a Ford right??

and of course have to show the pic of him un hooking from my taco after I pulled em out!

where did you get the All Pro bumper from? If you ordered it from online how much for the bumper and shipping? I really want to get one. Did you get lights and the winch to?

Yup to fast and going up a jeep eater trail, had the wrong angle on the hill. An expesive and very time consuming lesson learned. When are you going out to the point again? You know there is a nice mud field out by your base. Go out the back gate and head toward H-3 its on the left on the old dump road. accross from the high school. Drive that road and its right off the road cannot miss it. there is like 2 ways in that are not blocked off. Looks like fun
