His name it Tom and he teaches full time. Students include the military, Forest Service, regular folks, BLM. Great guy and VERY knowledgeable.
Taught us things I never knew, such as...
When approaching a ridge you turn right. Why? This allows you to 1. Not go over and run over a cliff. 2. Not run over people. 3. Primarily allows you to see down the hill from the drivers side and not have loss of vision for your immediate area below the passenger door if you turn left.
How to put tow straps together so they dont set into a unremovable knot after towing.
How to use your high lift jack for many things other than the high lift and to use it a the "poor man's winch".
Walking up a hill (turning the wheels L and R) to gain traction.
How to approach ditches, inclines, etc.
He owned a Jeep but highly recommended the Toyota. He's hardcore and changed his diff to a Ford 9" and has a built in winch, compressor, airtanks, armor, unlocking sway bar for more articulation.
etc. etc. etc. Much info.
It cost me $50 as a co-driver. You get maps of Ca trails, tire deflation guide, large book on 4X gear necessary, survival, technique/
THE BIG THING: THE ONLY MODS A TOYOTA NEED TO DO JUST ABOUT ANYTHNG. Per Tom.....
Tire change to 33"
Mild lift of 2.5 inches.
THAT'S IT! The truck is amazingly capable.
