    [​IMG][​IMG]

    I went to buy a tailight tonight and it turned out to be the shop that built that truck. Toyota stopped sponsoring them, took the truck back and crushed it. What a shame haha atleast my tailight is baja proven:laughing:

    Oh and Anthony250F, I asked him about the defined travel numbers and he only got 13" after Mike himself set it up.

    I think for me personally the only reason I care about this at all is because of the potential impact an accident someone gets in to can have on the ability to continue using the area where it happened, etc.

    There are very few people who genuinely don't know they are doing something unsafe. I guess I just dont feel sorry for people. If you want to LT and link your truck and not protect yourself and your passengers and you get hurt, that sucks for you. And it sounds mean, but I won't feel sorry for you. If you get in to someone's truck as a passenger without having appropriate safety gear and you get hurt, that sucks for you.

    The only real downfall to it all in my opinion is that other people's accidents as a result of negligence can negatively impact the rest of us who are responsible about it. Not calling anyone out, this is America and if you want to jump your truck without a cage, helmet, etc, more power to you!

    True, and its not like they don't know a cage isn't smart. Its pretty highly preached about everywhere.

    My thought on this for now, is every preaches it because it's true, but just how many people here have them really? And even then the majority of the offroaders on this forum that actually do have them are members of this thread.

    and for the record, I'm not jumping an LT truck, hell I'm not even jumping an MT truck:rolleyes: haha I have the TSB leaf pack in the rear with factory length 5100's... (one of which has been leaking like crazy for months now).


    For the guy asking about tires, aren't the BFG All Terrain K/O's a decent tire for the sand? and they don't cost a shit ton of money like those baja's. I don't recommend BFG KM2's for sand though. They dig pretty easily and I pretty much can't move in the sand (even with the rear locker) unless I am in 4wd, then I have no problem moving at all.

    Which IMO is even more dangerous...

    I would say that alot of people who were riding dirty on hre have for the most part had plans to get a roll cage and have. Have to say not too many people have an end goal of no roll cage. They atleast plan for it.
