    I mainly bought my truck to carry my dirt bike and use for the occasional trip to the home improvement stores. I haven’t done any off roading or wheeling.

    I’m driving back from my daughters place with my four year old grandson Bradley and I see this field near my house that they cleared to put new homes on. It was pretty much flat with a few little dirt mounds and stuff. I say "Bradley, you want to go off roadin’?". He says "Sure grandpa". So I pull into the field and start driving over these mounds and he’s laughing hysterically. We’d start up one and he’d say "We’re doing a wheelie"! Then we’re bouncing through these ruts and more laughing. I can’t believe how much fun we were having just puttin’ around this field! He had so much fun when we got home he made me take grandma back and do it again.

    I know this isn’t really off roadin’, I just felt like sharing my good time. Looks like my next Tacoma may have to be a 4x4.
