    So yeah, I've never taken the Taco off the paved road. :) I had just dropped my little lady friend off and decided to hit up a trail I saw. Wasn't so bad. Mostly just a dirt road. MOSTLY. Which means partly not...

    It got stuck. :eek: So I started calling people. Eventually got ahold of a friend from High School.

    Long story short: He didn't have a truck, but was willing to help. Guess how we got it out?

    Yep, he pretty much picked it up and pushed it forward with the help of the T-post you see there. :eek: Believe it or not. But I was there. :p



    So over-all, not too bad I guess. :D Anyways, this are the first pics of my truck here on TW. (Besides the Texas meet, I was in the back...)

    I wasn't the one sliding around at Silverado Canyon. :p




    You would've done fine if you had bigger, beefier tires! I've never gotten stuck in mud, just soft sand. It all depends on tires.

    personally, after having a 2 wheel drive pickup I think they're the dumbest thing ever.

    I can never understand lifting or putting off road tires on a truck thats not a 4x4.

    Makes zero sense to me.

    Alot of people forget that its the guy running the controls, and not always the vehicle. Granted, any 4x4 should be able to go places a Prerunner cant, But I have had my Prerunner in places that left people suprised.
