Off-road amateur, family fun

Hello Forum,

Just a few vids showing off my amateur off road-skills. I want to go to J.W. Corbett but I am waiting for the rainy season to be over since I want to hit some semi-dry trails also.

Thanks for the suggestion to meet there eventually when the weather dry's up some, AWorthyOpponent. Hopefully, more will join. I've always gone alone so it's nice to go with a group.

ENJOY!

This was my 1st time off roading with my 2WD 4.0 Tacoma so I was very cautious. I did end up going through the trail that I mentioned in the video as "too risky" after I recorded this. It wasn't that bad. My truck did just fine for what it is & for my amateur skills. LOL!
The point here is that my 2 boys & I had a blast! My wife had fun too except for the fact that she gets car sick. This isn't just a smooth, muddy surface. In most areas it has small boulders & rutts underneath the mud so you literally drive 5 mph & you are bouncing in the truck. The sidewalls of my tires have scuff marks due to these rocks that are under the mud.

Here I am leaving the wooded area. When I drive out I fishtailed to the right then to the left (on purpose) & my wife thought that I was going to hit the rocks! LOL! We had fun! Once we drove home & my wife was feeling less nauseous she said it was fun!

Here I am with my youngest son & my wife. I followed the trucks since I am not too familiar with the area. If they weren't there I would have walked it. I won't take a chance & one of the guys out there told me that there is a lake to the left of this so you have to be careful. There is mud in the other surrounding areas but I had fun with this & cleaning mud off of a truck is a P.I.T.A.! As it is it took a while to get it cleaned the next day.

This is just showing the entrance to the flooded area that I drove through in the previous video.

BTW, I added Billies with the fronts at .85 & a Wheelers 3 leaf AAL (minus the smallest spring).

Thanks

No problem,

I followed this write-up when I did mine. Order the parts needed & once you have them let me know. I would be glad to help you.
