First Post, First Time Out... worth a thread

Whats up TW? First post after lurking a while, I wanted to share my pictures and first time 4 wheeling experience. There isn't much of the truck since I was taking the pictures.

A couple friends with Suzuki's have been riding me since I got my 99 to go backwoods with them, I finally lost my 4 wheelin' virginity yesterday. The truck did really well, especially since we realized halfway through the trip that my hubs weren't locking... still got through some deep mud holes in the trails. A friend who works for Toyota is thinking it might be the solonoid on the top of the front axle. I didnt' realize the manual hubs had anything electronic, but I'll take a look.

Anyways... Enjoy:

Is probably going to spark another 2WD/4WD discussion

Thanks for the kind words. I've already read plenty of arguments on 2wd/4wd...

Being that I don't have the locker that a lot of the 2wd guys do, I think I did really well... no grey wire mod for me I need to get the truck up on a lift to see what's going on under there so I have a lil piece of mind next time out.

Anyone know of good trails in PA-DE area?? I know there's a rediculous amount of Jersey trails, but with gas prices and a bridge toll

Raush Creek looks like it's about an hour and a half from me, definately doable. Now, I just have to get on Keystone to find someone to go with LOL

All my buddies are a half to an hour south of me, in Delaware.

Now my real issue is, that I bought this truck to do light hauling and drive daily (see also: leave alone). That way my other cars can get more 'mod' money thrown at them LOL

You just missed it - their monthly ride / camp out weekend was today/tomorrow.

They usually have monthly runs every 3rd weekend of the month. They try to alternate Sats & Suns to keep everyone happy (in case people work on Sats).

A buddy is heading up on the 29th with his Jeep buddies, I'm going to try to get out there with them then.
