First offroad expierence

Just went offroading on a private trail in San Juan, California. It was awesome. I loved how it handled the bumps and dirt. Definatly made me want to get some new offroad tires. Share your offroad trips!

Tip # 1. get new tires

Tacoma's are incredibly capable off-road, but those tires are not. decent all-terrain tires and your truck will shock you with it's ability off-road.

P.S. nice pics

Welcome OP! Glad to see you got bit by the off-road bug. When I got my truck, I couldn't wait to put it in 4WD and take it somewhere. Us PNW members have pics from some of our trips in the NW/WA Meet Thread.

Dont have any videos unfortuantly. Next time I go out ill get some footage. The 4cl definitely feels like there is no power in it when you first use it. Then after a couple days you will be use to it. I can still drift my truck on pavement haha so its not terrible. If money isn't an issue id say a V6. Test drive them both!
