    i'm a first-timer with an new all-stock Long-bed double-cab 4x4 sport.

    wondering if anybody knows of any videos of the beginner trails, i want to see what i would be getting myself into.

    i certainly don't mind if i get the truck dirty, i just don't want it damaged.

    really?

    man some of those videos look pretty gnarly! i'd hate to drag a driveshaft or even scratch a bolder.

    i won't give a $hit in 10 years, but right now my truck is spanking new.

    Good eye, dude, it’s a ’57 Ford F-100. 2WD boo hoo! Also 1965 Shelby Cobra replica in garage

    Where is the entrance to Silverado Canyon? That’s a legal place?


    I am originally from NYC, I don’t think I’ve ever even driven on a dirt road before!!!

    let me make Us3R feel even better.....

    dumb question from me: do you put it in regular 4WD or 4WD low to just cruise around?

    funny, i built that cobra kit car from scratch, with NO prior experience, motor, transmission, and all, yet i have no clue when it comes to even mild off-roading.

    THANKS GUYS

    i now see on GoogleMaps how Silverado Canyon road turns into a truck trail.

    i'll check it out some time.

    i saw an Azuza Canyon decal on a 4x4 tacoma on the road the other day. any clue where/what that is?
