    I've been on the Rubicon in a Land Rover but never a Tacoma.

    In general, you'll want 33 or larger tires, lockers, body armor, good front and rear recovery points and spare parts.

    I think a well modded 2nd Gen could get thru but it's a pretty gnarly trail. Especially after this last winter with how much snow we had and when it melted it eroded a lot more of the trail. I've been wheelin that trail with my dad for awhile. have a 91 pickup access cab that was stock. We'd go up there, break something, come back rebuild it better, go up again and break something else ect. Hers our creation pretty much based off the rubicon over the years. Gets us thru with no problems at all.
