    I just want to know . shouldn't the fastest off roader be leading ? I have a crawler but it does everything but crawler. It's more like a rock leaper then a crawler. But what ever works I guess.

    or at least let me know what trail were all going on so I can look it out to see my passing zones.

    what's the rush? if you have a crawler chances are you have some recovery gear to help out if someone else's truck takes a shit (mine)..would be nice to help than to zoom away

    So I took most the pics during one of our camping trips and havent exactly shared them with him yet. I will post a few.
    The first pic is before he modified for extra wheel travel.

    Don't worry about the trail ride day though. I think he will be the only one jumping rocks. I ride slow in my truck. Don't want to hurt my baby. I didn't air down in these videos because I didn't have a compressor to air up for the ride home. It was still fun though.

    More then likey I'll be going the same speed as everfyone else with everyone else for those just in case high centers and such . When we hit some narly stuff I would hope the person leading or at least the person behind me would allow me to wait for the person in front to get out of the way so I could launch that big bad rock ! LOL. You all might want to bring a video camra. That toy has a way of doing things that you would never think was possible by a 22R engine. Like launching four feet in the air after hitting a boulder at 35 miles an hour and not break a thing while doing it. Good times by all ;)

    My Tacoma was about a month old and I had it 4-5 feet in the air down by buena vista was fun till I landed ;) But I don't see what the rush is when wheeling it's not a rally race. Either way should be a fun day.

    You just have to sit in the passenger seat for a few large rocks and you will know what its all about. Its a real big rush. I can wait till we get that roll bar in there this summer. Anyone have any spare tubing that will work for a roll bar or know where to get some for cheep?

    So I dont think that I will be performing the Satoshi Grill on Mod Day. Don't think that I will have enough time to let the fiberglass set, bondo set and paint to dry within the day. Im also looking to get the grill surround painted to match the truck color. I am considering the tail light tint but depends on what it looks like. I am also considering the dash light change mod:http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/40466-how-change-you-dash-lights-jotaro.html if there is someone that has done this or is good with soldering if I suck. Still nervous that I will fry the dash.

    Mods that I am definately doing on Mod Day:
    - URD Short Shifter Install
    - Illuminated 4x4 Switch
    - Light Racing UCA install

    We have seen pictures of your crawler and I dont think that any of us want to "bash" like you want to, but some one correct me if I am wrong. Also I am not sure that anyone has a rig capable enough to follow where it seems you want to go. Unless some of us have long travel kits and lockers(on the wish list though):D

    Second I recomended Jenny Creek Trail for the run. According to Colorado Back Road Adventures it is scored as a 7 out of 10. Might be a little hard core for some. Some one said Lyon's. I think that is left hand canyon. That has some pretty hard core trails as well but some easy ones too. Last I heard I thought they were going to try and close it.
