    Just wanted to say hello from Alaska. I just joined and bought a 2009 regular cab truck. I have built several 4x4's over the years but, never a Toyota truck. I did do an 83 landcruiser and still have it. Anyway, looking forward to participating and hopefully adding to the discussion! Thanks.

    That's cool, you have a more than capable truck now depending on what tires you have.

    Welcome! The wife and I went up to AK to get married, and can't wait to get back. I couldn't hack living there all year round, but I would love to have a summer cabin up there someday.

    I just put 265/70/17 Toyo MT's on it last week. I'm happy with them. I have them on my 2500 HD as well and have had good luck with them.
