    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    More importantly, is it PreRunner friendly? :)

    Exactly, I've only been back like a mile or so a few times when we went shooting, but never really did go any further then that.

    This is about as far as I've gone:[​IMG]

    Could be something good...

    "... easy 4WD route." So does that mean its prerunner friendly?

    I duno, its about 3 miles east of hemet off the 74...

    Yeah, my bad.. Im just sitting at home and really want to get out and go check it out. I'll go and let ya know how it was. Hell if my truck can make it yours will easily make it. You have the locking rear diff, right? So yeah, if I make it in my truck with an open diff, then for sure yours can make it.

    Just got back... Yeah, you can do it in a prerunner for sure. I didnt get to the very top cause the snow started getting pretty thick and I didnt want to get stuck, so I turned around. I ended up following a couple broncos up which was cool, so I wasnt alone. I recorded the ride up, copping it off my camera npw. But yeah, Derek, I'm almost positive you would have made it up to the top since you have the locker. Me, one tire spinning like mad through most of that mud/snow. Pretty cool stream/river crossing that was about 2-3 feet deep though. Thats was kinda harry. I dont know if its something youguys wanna check out, but its pretty fun. I took a couple pics, and I'll post those in a few.
