    Hey I've been there! This is the place to learn! Coming into this I was pretty much clueless. And now after getting flamed for everything stupid I say, I'm still clueless and now terrified to post anything! Just kidding, but when in doubt say nothing! Haha

    Oh yeah that's right :D DO NOT FOLLOW ME! Or you will likely get yourself into some pretty f*cked up situations. Latest example:

    Although if you have a winch, DO follow me as I will definitely need help out!

    Ya you could do some of the stuff out there and there are alot of things that i do in 2 wheel drive, but for the most part all of the fun stuff is very steep and sketch haha and then a gnarly river bed for 4x4. Its in a very vertical valley.. soo is it worth driving out there, yes just to check it out specially if ur with someone else to hit the 4x4 trails, but its a fun spot!:cheers:

    I actually built the tire gate myself I based the design off of the tiregate company product.... and i baught the roof rack off of user dwreck on tacomaworld he makes alot of really nice stuff, but the roof rack was a 1 off rack he built, but i kow he had another for sale, but idk if he sold it or not. Let me know if you have any other questions! I was thinking about building another spare tire gate so if i do i will sell you my old one but im not sure yet!:D Thanks for the compliment!

    Bingo. The tank is a little harder to see. I don't use the horn all that much anymore (only when I go into town :D), but the tank has been super useful for filling up tires and such.
