    im available on may 11th, we can hit up the santa ana canyon, no need for new tires, you can climb most of the hills with just 2wd... its mostly main roads...

    i will take the easy trails and show you the hard ones for you guys to climb... i dont have any sliders yet and no lift yet with stock tires...

    modjeska canyon or any orange canyon entrances to the main divide CLOSED!!! i tried and drove all of them, wasted my gas!!!

    Hey guys;
    Just wanted to let you guys know that ToyotaNation is having another San Diego tacoma meet on 05/10 and some of us are planning on going to Anza Borrego. I didn't go to the last one but I think there was like 15 tacos there.
    A bunch of us from OC are all rolling over there together so any one in the OC or LA area want to meet up let me know.
    Not sure if that info is posted here, if so :p my bad.

    I have everything on my truck except for the wheels and tires (stock ones are getting bald) hopefully I can get my wheels and tires before the meet, not sure if my tires will hold up for Anza.

    Anyhow I'm in the OC and always down to hit up some trails around here.
    Easy trails for now untill the wheels and tires are on.

    You could go to Demello Offroad they build quality stuff and great workmanship but are a little pricey.
    Most guys on these forums could probably help you out though, that particular lift is not difficult to install.

    I know the trail and pioneer town very well. If you were out that way you should go back to dirtopia and search old dale. Quite an enjoyable venture.
