    I'm in to check out red cloud! Except I have to get a new tow strap because mine have metal hooks. Also for their "jack" requirement can it just be the bottle jack that comes stock or does it have to be a hi lift

    It's not bad. Some trails were pretty muddy but they also have a hose hooked up to a fire hydrant to clean off with. There were also a bunch of dry trails. Most quite tight and there were some tougher drop offs and tougher angles. The tacoma (on stock suspension with 265/75r16's) did fine but I did need a few pulls due to the lack of a locker. Also I definitely recommend skids. My SOS skid was well used (actually bent a portion of the mid skid mounting lip). The jeeps and 4runners did fine -- definitely helped by their shorter wheelbase but the tacoma's length and long overhangs were a bit of a hinderance. Length only helped with getting traction on the steep hills.

    It's was fun but I did not enjoy cleaning mud for the entire next day.

    The jack that comes with your truck is fine. You don't have to have a hi lift. You will defenetly want a snachstrap. But if we all go together I have extra you can borrow.

    Anyone have a TRD SC Tacoma I can use for measurements? I need to make a mounting plate. No driving involved, just measurements for reference.

    my icons are fucked - need new lower bearings/heims and spacers, full rebuild, just in wicked rough shape. Cant decide if 700lb springs are worth it

    for them or DSM to do a rebuild looks like around 600 for the pair. (including 700 LB springs)

    i would need a few parts and such, would imagine it would be cheaper to DIY
