Hey guys, I am pretty excited from my first offroad experience today!!
This is my 2nd time in this trail, I discovered it this weekend but I did not ride it much. Went there today again after a light rain, and what a blast!
First of all, I am so glad I have a 4x4, Now I know that the extra money for a 4x4 was a good investment!!!
Talk about another good investment, now I appreciate all this talk about offroad and all terrain tires, as you can see from the photos, it was not long into to it, I start loosing most of my traction when my tires got covered by mud. I did not know that is what happen to them! Keep in mind that my tires are pretty new! My 2010 TRD Sport only has 10K miles. So, next set of tires, will be more of a offroad type than street, as I have on TRD Sport.
It was fun to struggle to go uphill even with the 4x4 on. Almost did not make it at one point, it was sliding side to side and crawling uphill very slowly.
It was fun to turn the wheel to the sides and still keep going straight! The truck would follow the grooves more than my steering commands. It worried me for a few secs as I was going downhill...heading to a big whole.
I have a 4 doors, long bed, and I was glad to see that was not an issue when going on double dirt mounts. I read it before that the long beds hit the back fender... not an issue today.
I love my Taco !!! Can wait to go back. Hopefully next time I will have one of you guys there!
Like I said, it is in Hendersonville, just outside Nashville if you would like to join me.
