    i need to hit up some dirt so i can beat up my suspension and test out my new tires. anybody want to join me? i'm just gonna blast around and maybe do some shock tuning. it's gonna be a quick trip for me, i'll only be there a few hours...it's a quick fix. i'll bring my go pro but it would be nice to have somebody there to snap some pics :D

    i need to get out and play, i didnt make the superstition run this weekend and i'm sad

    except i hav one question, there was this one trail we went on, it was progon horn trail or sumthin like that, u get there from the powerline trail (i think it was called) its the one where conekiller has footage of him flexing around the left turn.....

    its a skinny trail from what i remember and i dont know if his tundra will fit on the trail....anyone have any past experience with a biggier truck or seen one go through there?

    ive only been there once, and dont wana put my buddy in a BAD situation

    yeah, pronghorn trail and yes you get there by taking powerline. i wouldn't take a tundra back there... it's pretty tight in some spaces even for tacoma.

    It would be very tight, is he 4x4? He would need to be a good driver, 4wd a plus, and not afraid of some pinstrips or fender abrastions :) Ask for a map at entrance and take him through rattler, maxey, sterling, freeman, pipeline, and of course powerline all of which he should be totally fine. Oh and salt lick off powerline is a fun lil loop too!
