There's soo many different variations of offroading across the world/country - it'd be nice to get an idea of what types of offroading everyone is doing and what/how you build your rigs for it. What types of cultures do you have in your area of offroading? ETC. Answer the questions below and if you have pictures - post 'em. This is all about the terrain. If you wheel something other than your tacoma, your input still applies!! Post it!! 4Wheeled vehicles only please (no ATV experience). Please - no debating on why or what people do. If you have questions - feel free. Just make a note to understand each others culture.
We don't need to know personal reasons why you answer the questions the way you do. Your reasons & thoughts aren't up for debate.This is strictly a list of information for everyone to read.
