    So are you scared of a few little rocks?? :D

    That would have been Steve...1st Gen Tacoma I believe he was stock height with Sliders, 31" tires, and Open/Open (No locker or LSD) We had to pull him up through all the waterfalls on the trail...:cool:

    I use a Nikon D70S, Here is a shot of my Camera...

    If you listen to your spotters, and drive carefully and follow your lines you can get out of here with no huge dents or scratches...rear bumpers will receive damage regardless...but it can be done! My brother and I have done these trials many times with no damage! (Knocks on wood)

    It does take a little mental instability to roll with the SoCal TTORA guys! :eek:

    Well to be quite honest, and not to sound like I am tooting my own horn! But it's not necessarily just the camera I know a lot of people who shoot with DSLRs who's pictures come out looking just like a normal point and shoot!

    If you guys are planning on going out to buy a nice big fancy DSLR take a photography class so you can really tap into all of its powers! Don't expect great photos right off the bat because it's now just having the camera that will deliver great shots! :)
