    Me and a buddy are going offroading this saturday at 10:30am. Anyone here wannna join?

    Details:

    e can meet in the LA Fitness parking lot on the corner of Portola/Santa Margarita & El Toro. PM me and I'll give you my phone number. Meet there at 10:00, leaving at 10:30.

    The trail will take about 2-3 hours and drop you off in Corona, so you'll need to take the 91 freeway back, or for the san diego people, the other direction, lol.

    Its a fire road, so it is definity prerunner friendly, but there are by-passes which I and my buddy will take that are 4x4. They always re-connect to the trail so no worries, plus some you can try and I have a tow strap if for some reason you get stuck.

    My buddy is driving a F250 Superduty diesel so he'll have plenty of power if one of us get stuck.

    Hows that? Did I clear up all the questions? lol....again, I'm going for sure and my buddy so any other people would be cool and since we're both 4x4 no worries for you pre-runner folks about getting stuck....might even be some mud to have fun in!!!!!!!!!!!

    This sounds good, I live in Lake Forest and have never done that trail. Was also planning on going to that Tundra meet in Brea too so gotta make up my mind by tomorrow.

    I like it a lot, I only had my stock TRD to really compare it too, It is stiffer for sure but the travel is what I am after. I get more travel than stock when everyone else is sitting on three wheels I am still touching. I would like to get a leaf pack but the TSB will have to work for now. I compared the stock TRDs and the Kings two weeks apart on the same trail and it was night and day. I am still running Rugged Fails, which get me through the trails but it will be much better when I have the funds to upgrade.

    The 2.5 shock bodies are beast.

    If you want to see how kings really ride I suggest you add Bajamoon's truck to your sig and hopefully he'll give you a ride in his truck...that things is a beast.
