    Finally did some wheeling again. After the recent addition of a front locker, and wheeling some west slope big boy trails, it almost feels like I’m cheating out here on the local stuff

    Little optional section on Kelly flats. Pretty much the only part of the trail that’s actually crawling

    Never been there. One of the bad things about having a trailer queen.

    Yeah it is definitely not worth trailering to. Maybe if you were out on Moody Hill playing in the quarry and decided to take a scenic route over to Kelly Flats. But there really isn't anything I have found in Northern Colorado that's worth loading onto a trailer

    Well, NW Colorado has some good stuff :D. It’s in the middle of nowhere though (Rangely).

    So we’re you overall happy with your mods? Where to next? Truck looks super capable and no tears for scratches and dents (first one sucks though).

    I’m beyond stoked with it right now. I mean basically it’s been minimal suspension work, gears, lockers, and armor, and it has done great on every trail I’ve tried. Unfortunately I talk to @WarFab Armor too much, so after I get the tow pig built how I want it, I’ll be tearing into this thing pretty heavily. Hopefully the funds will be there this winter for the tow rig, and I’ll wheel another year with the taco like this. Want to tackle some crazy stuff as is to prove what these things are capable of.

    But between mike and pitting for ultra4 teams, I have a large goal for this truck that I’m hoping to meet in a few years. There won’t be much Toyota left haha

    What are you building for a tow rig?

    I know the feeling. I rebuilt and revalved my Kings yesterday. I really need to get off my ass and into the garage to mount the rear shocks, clearance everything, build skins....go mess it all up again. I'm sure I will keep the body and cage straight for the first run.....







    :rofl:



    But I wouldn't place any money on it.....


    Learn all you can from the Ultra4 racing. You can learn a lot about shock valving, suspension design, engine setups...etc.

    Damn that looks sporty. I would totally expect some body damage on that run.

    Alright well I just ran bull frog an fell into the hole of the “mega v-notch.” We tried to ride it high on the left (right side on first pic). Hard to tell on the pic but it’s an oddly narrow but not so narrow space in between. Hard to describe and the pics don’t do much justice. So anyways I fell in and landed on my fender. All things considered the damage was minimal. My @WarFab Armor rear bumper with the tree saver really saved my ass. I seriously can’t stress how much I love that bumper. I would’ve needed a new driver side bed if it wasn’t for the side protection.

    Not a lot of pics because I almost destroyed the door at some point so this is all I got lol.

    Sorry fellas. I know stacking rocks is ill advised but it’s the only thing that kept me from falling deeper in and destroying my door.. I made it out relatively unscathed.

    And the very minimal post trail damage report. Fender is bent in, can’t really see it in the pic but otherwise it’s mainly the fender flares. Not sure if I’ll fix it or not. Doesn’t seem nearly as bad as some of the folks here lol.

    @CGoss just isn’t human. Haha.

    yeah not bad at all. I know it caved in a bit because the door was catching on the fender so I pulled the crap out of it. I think the white helps. (Main reason I bought a white truck, can’t see shiieet :D)

    It was a good time for sure!
