Well let me use your truck to make 2nd gen skid plates so you can go through it all.

I could probably have some sliders fabbed up early this summer too.

I'd really like a tube bumper up front with a skid, if I was going to do a rear I would do high clearance.

Tube is probably a no go. I don't have a reliable fab shop around that can bend much tubing for me. That's why I'm not making sliders yet. 4X can probably sell me a set for less than I can fab my own at this point. There's a place in Boone I might investigate.

I looked through your pictures a bit, what have you made so far? Doing it in your garage at home?

Skids for 1st gens are all I have actually fabbed out of steel so far. I'm ready to get my first rear bumper for 1st gen welded up within a couple weeks. If it's welding and grinding I work out of my buddy's garage, otherwise cutting and bending I farm out to a local fab shop. I'm trying to design more products to sell, but it takes a while.

My order is something like this coming up: 1st gen rear bumper, sliders, 1st gen front winch bumper. Hopefully I can get them all done by fall semester. Somewhere in there I might do a full transfer case skid and a gas tank skid.

Sweet.

If you need a 2nd gen to work on let me know.

I probably will. I'm gonna go peek under one at the dealer after hours and decide how hard it will be to fab some 2nd gen plates. I don't want to require moving the exhaust cross over. The budbuilt skids look a little more fabricationally involved compared to 1st gen skids.

I was at QT on 2nd & Broadway getting gas a little bit ago and came out to see two Nissan Xterras that were highly modded and packed with gear. One was completely covered in graphics from xterranation.org. I was going to talk to them but they seemed kinda busy so I headed on my way. Not two blocks down the road I see 5 more in a convoy heading towards QT!

I had to look them up when I got home and see that they're on the way to Moab for a week long event. Would have been cooler if it was a bunch of Tacomas but I thought I'd share.

I've talked to a couple of those guys on the MIOBI page, the one that is wrapped in vinyl is from Carlisle. They wheel at MIOBI quite often.

hey guys,
I don't own a Tacoma, but did a few years back. I currently own a couple of 4Runners. I was asked by ISU2014 to come over here and post up. I frequent a couple other Toyota forums and we chatted a little via PM. I was asked to introduce myself and share a little information regarding offroading in Iowa. (for those interested) I organized a Toyota offroad event for a couple years here in Iowa. The event was hosted at MIOBI "grounds". In some of the prior posts I noticed that some of you guys are concerned that you wouldn't be able to go there with your current trucks. I understand based on the pictures that were posted from there. I took my 97' Tacoma there a couple of times when it had a 2.5" lift and 31's. There are trails there for slightly modified and stock rigs. I don't always get on a lot and my time right now is limited so, if nothing else here are some pictures.
