    not sure, but Dan lead. We met up near Burgettstown to look for a waterfall. We did one pretty good climb in some deep snow. The KO2 did great.

    Was this organized on FB or something? I'd love to get my Pro some offroad work.

    There are some of us who like to wheel and some of us who like to cruise. The Facebook group seems to be a meetup and cruise type of group from what I can tell. It isn’t really advertised on this page when they go out so you have to wander on FB for that. Then there are those of us that schedule dedicated trail days on here, and we usually go on more technical trails from what I can tell through pictures.

    I definitely like to cruise; love driving my Taco so far. I'm definitely going to blow past my mileage allowance with this lease. LOL

    While this isn't my first truck, I would definitely call it my first off-road capable truck. I'd like to get it out on some trails, nothing super crazy though, at least starting out. Off-roading and overlanding is new to me, so I'd like to his some novice trails, to get my wheels under me.

    Hello fellow yinzers, I am new here having bought my first Tacoma back in September. I'm eager to get it off road this year and make some new friends, what is the name of the Facebook group?

    I promise you your not sucking in exponential dirt around here. Most snorkels are put on in the west due to the desert sands. I put my snorkel on after almost drowning fury 2 years ago at my dads place returning with gas during a flood. On this side of the states an elephant trunk is only useful for water crossings and I wouldn’t put something sub-par on my truck when it comes to air intake. All of my mods done for my truck have been because of reason. Mostly because of al the wood I cut and haul; winch, rock slider (after almost hitting a cut off stump), suspension/lift. I camp hence the soft topper, and the elephant trunk is because my father lives in a flood zone; when I get the call at 2am I need to be able to get there.

    If I could I’d take 600 sheckles and spend it elsewhere. I just dropped a chunk of change on batteries and would highly recommend odyssey. Even aux lighting light @Loco_Driver has on the rear are all better money spent IMO.

    Breaking away for a trip this weekend. The water crossings may be interested and will be lots of mud.

    Meeting in Morgantown Saturday at 10:00. Camping around FR-18 possibly

    Finally got everything pretty well fixed up. New brakes all the way around, hubs up front, heat shield now has fender washers to keep it from falling. I might take a trip to Mcconnell's mill later and take the kids for a little hike.
