    Niagara Rim trail is fun. I’d plan on spending most of a day for it. It’s not terribly technical but there are some weird off camber stuff that get you white knuckled. The Modesto 4x4 club does an annual poker run up there and they get semi-stock vehicles through.

    Hopefully I can get my rig dialed in and can join you on that trip!

    I've wanted to try it, but just always assumed it was a bit too much for a DCLB. Now I'm super interested.

    Right? The only reason I've done half the things I've done is because @CalTacoma09 usually goes through first. If he can make it, I probably can too, even though he's got that cheater button.

    Note: I'm in the market for a locker if any of you 209 folks know where to pick one up on the cheap.

    The first half mile is probably the most technical. So I’d walk it first and try and figure what lines look good. It’s kind of a gate keeper.

    Be sure to have sliders/armor though and someone ahead to help tug you out. Lots of loose boulders which can hang you up.

    I think you can find them for cheaper, pretty sure guys were getting them for $700 or so (but i think they were mostly black)







    on all the trail talk, i wanna go on a (slightly) more gnarly trail run but i havnt done my reroute yet (and havnt gotten the Tcase skid). I dont think the skid is super important but, i dislike how the underside of my truck is smooth 1/4" steel and then theres this little bit'o thin exhaust pipe hanging down just waiting to be ripped off by a rock im sliding over lol

    Watched some videos of the Niagara Rim trail and it doesnt look too bad, but that low hangin exhaust would bother me lol

    I know its cheap and easy, but from what ive read alot of places wanna see the skid first so they know what they need to do/move around.

    I will say im a little particular on how they do it, id like for it to be tucked up and heat shields added for the Tcase actuator lol

    Next time we're at Matts wrenching imma have to take some pics of yours to show them maybe, i just need to procrastinate less

    That's not a bad price. I think those wheels go for around $800 by themselves (if you find a good price on them) Those tires are probably close to $1000 brand new.

    I'm running GoodYear duratracs right now, and I'm really liking them. Nice and quiet, they are wearing evenly, and they get pretty good traction.

    As far as the 90% tread thing he posted. No way to tell that unless you go actually look at them. Seems everyone says their tires have 90% tread left. (In my case, I got lucky and they actually did have 90% tread).

    If it were me buying I'd approach the guy with something like "I've got a thousand cash and I can meet you right now" and see what he says.

    No... that's the price for the exhaust rerout to make room for a mid skid plate.

    Didnt realize we were looking at tires too, 1200 for rims and 4 newish tires isnt too bad. Especially if* youre on stock tires (which i think are 30 inches and some change?), those tires ar 32" ish tall so you should get some height increase from them, maybe even an inch (everyone could use an extra inch, am i right?). They are some skinnies tho, some guys dont like the skinny tires, some do.

    I think the stock 3rd gen can fit larger tires than a stock 2nd gen. I remember reading in the skinny tire thread that people were putting 255/80/17's on their stock 3rds.

    A lot of crap and too much money spent
    Agreed, not a bad price for the rims and tires. Like @Uphillshunter mentioned come in a little bit lower.

    So the good news is I found a dealer to sell me New Rims PTR20-35110-GR for $716.44 plus tax. Only thing is I have to drive to get them and they are two hours away. I wish I could seem them on a cement Tacoma first, I can’t seem to find that combination in online for a better look. I saw one truck but it wasn’t a great photo.

    Yeah I run 255/80/17's. With sway bar you do not need to do a CMC or trim fender well. You will rub occasionally depending on the flex of the truck.

    Without sway bar you will rub fender well a lot depending on flex or how hard you wheel. I rubbed on my CM maybe once or twice in 4 months before I got a CMC done anyways.
