    I want to say I am kind of new to the Memphis Area but I been here for almost 2 years now and still have no idea where things are. Roommate and myself are going to get into doing more outdoor things with the Mountain Bikes and Kayaking. Addition to this we both want to start taking the vehicles off-roading this some.

    I ride Wolf river (yellow and blue) like 90% of the time because its so convienient. Once it dries up some, tour de wolf (also in Shelby Farms) will be available... I mean its available now, but theres some water crossings. Herb is great. Theres a short track in lakeland at IH park. Stanky is prob the best in memphis.

    Hit me up sometime if you want to ride. I go quite a bit, not really in the best shape, but I can keep up.

    As for wheelin, theres not much around memphis. When I had my 80 and my old sas 4runner I would just go to Hot springs all the time. My Tacoma is stock right now, so wheelin wise, its gotta be pretty tame for me.

    Sweet, We been trying to find a group of people in the area to go out and do outdoor things with.

    Feel bad I already bought mine modded by @totmacher back Last July, There are many mods that are in mind for it this year

    I been thinking about it for 6 months now and its kind one of those should I do it or not. More then likely will do it when it needs to have a paint job

    Thinking about it.
    Shelby Farms and Stanky Creek are the only places I've ridden around here. They were nice trails a couple years ago last time i was on them.

    New tires i put on the bike sucked so i haven't ridden much. Didn't realize just how noticeable a tire difference would be. Was basically like replacing Swampers with street tires and still trying to get through the mud. :oops:

    Haha theyre still great trails, I try and get out as many times a week as I can.


    What tires did you go with? Just curious? I ride enduro tires around here, they are slow but grippy as shit. Maxxis DHR II front and rear.

    I've had 3 total. 1 now in the front of my Tacoma. Not as "positive" as a locker, but very effective (compared to an open diff) and very mild mannered for street driving
