    Not my fault the trail went into a large puddle. At least the 4runner made it... unlike the Cherokee. :eek:

    If you want to come down and see how your truck fares in the water I am free this weekend :p

    I can bring a Sawzall too. These bolts are some obscure Toyota only diameter. Dealership should have them. See if they will let you return them if unused and get two, otherwise get one and maybe we'll get lucky. They were expensive, 8-12 bucks each or something in that area. I had to cut the driver side out on mine, passenger side slid out on it's own. If we do it on a Saturday we can always pick one up then if needed, assuming they stock them...
    Maybe just get two just because.:notsure:

    It smells like forest fire in my house right now. Is that the winds bringing the smoke up from NM?

    I always camp in the texas creek area. Pretty much turn right at the stop sign at the end of cottonwood pass, about 1 mile you'll see signs for texas creek.

    That area is mostly for atv/utv's so it might be too tame for you but there is a really good single track trail if you go up to the lake (texas lake?) it is just past the bridge and goes up around the lake and trail 414 is another good one which is in that area too. You will be able to ride anywhere too even without a license plate, like tin cup pass, tomichi pass, pearl pass, ect..

    I'd buy a map at the taylor park store which sells fuel too and go from there there is a ton of trails there but I think It might be early for some of the stuff near timberline.

    Tame is ok for us. I may hit the single track one day... I have a Nat Geo map that shows some trails. I will mark those down though. Thanks

    Anyone else have a squeak problems with the light racing ucas? I followed the instructions to a "T" and am about to take apart again to regrease the sleeves, already regreased the outter edges along the washers last week and didnt help. Any tips? Seems like half the people have noise issues and half dont.

    Welcome to Beater-ville!
    I ordered a couple different kits from different manufacturers and the gates kit seemed far nicer in quality and was actually one of the cheaper kits since I got it on sale from rock auto.

    A little of this and a little of that.
    Is the bolt holding the arm onto the truck over-torqued? Tightening it down too much my be causing the poly to bind a bit. Lube should help that though.

    Torqued to spec, I made sure both times I loosened it I was careful to to crank pass my torque wrench "snap". Hopefully a good lathering of grease in the sleeve fixes it, the noise it gettn worse even driving around town.
