    2 things:


    1. You need to air down some

    2. Thats a big fuckin' dog





    A locker is always nice but I've gotten by without one (my TRD is my first) since I started wheeling 40 years ago, trust me , you air down proper You'll think you have one..

    What PSI do you usually run at offroad? The reason I ask is I just picked up some tire deflators and want to know how to set them properly. They range from 5-20 psi, but the highest they seem to work at is 15.5.

    When in 4 low, you can apply a little pressure to the brakes, and it will help get power to the spinning wheels. Old school trick :)

    I run 10 psi on my tires. I also have lockers front and rear. They make all the difference in the world.

    Even with airing down that would have been difficult... A rear locker you could have gotten through that in 2wd.

    Lots of articulation is a great way to compensate for no lockers.
