Hey everyone, new member here looking for some advice on my (currently stock) 09 TRD. I'm just a hunter who seems to have to go deeper and deeper in the mountains to find peace and quiet anymore.
Recently, while scouting some land, I got caught in a downpour and was stuck in about a 2 foot deep mud slide going downhill with no option to turn around. Now, I've been stuck plenty of times enough to know how to wiggle and slide my way out of some spots. But this one had me working at it for a while.
I learned a few things. One, don't leave home without the come-along.
Two, don't wait to get new tires... I was thinking of buying a set of Firestone Destination's since I also drive on the interstate. Anyone got experience running these?
And last, I need to put about 2" of lift on this thing. I read on here that Bilstein 5100s are good on the front. But not sure what to put on the back. I've read advice for leafs, but not sure if that's needed for what I'm doing. Any suggestions, brands, etc?
Remember, not looking to climb to the moon, but don't want to get into a sticky situation again either.
Thanks for any info guys.
