    I'm repairing my bumper, also known as cardboard. So I happened to not have it on when I went through some big puddles and a lot of mud. I looked and it didn't look like the radiator got much water. So, will it be ok?

    Also, How do I upload videos from my phone to the computer via USB? It says it can't find the software. I heard you can upload it from youtube but I don't know what to look for. Anyone know anything about uploading from phone to computer by cord connection? (I have the samsung rogue and the videos are too big to send.) I need help on this please

    It says 'media' something and 'modem' . The media one brings up something for uploading songs, and then it says that I need to connect my phone to the computer. Gahh.... Why can't I just simply upload it? lol

    Alright thanks! Ill be sure to make sure it's not too strong. Im going tomorrow because it was sooooo fun. And the Tacoma kicked the trails ASS. Didn't get stuck at all, even if I took it super slow. We didn't have another vehicle to pull us out so we didn't completely stop. I was super impressed. :D Snow, on the other hand, my Tacoma absolutely sucks on it.

    all about the tires....for mud you want the tread blocks further appart, and for snow, you want lots of little channels in the tread.

    sounds like a blast though :)

    Yeah it was! It was my first time "off-roading" so it was kinda new to me but I wasn't stupid either. I knew how to do it, just not from experience. The only other time it got dirty was a parking lot thing where they dumped the snow so it was really muddy but not like ruts and stuff I just went in. Ill upload some videos if SOMEONE CAN TELL ME HOW!:rolleyes: Haha

    Yep, then it will work just fine.

    Oh, and by the way, when you spray your radiator spray perpendicular to the fins and spray side to side, not up and down and not at an angle.

    I can't make guarantees online but I'm pretty sure. Just make sure you do like those links said and format it as a mass storage device right away.

    SPray your truck and radiator of with a standard garden hose. The save the pressure washer for less delicate parts.

    Pay close attention to where your tube is for your air intake. Submerging that or hitting a hole and funneling water up into the engine will bring things to a hault quick.
