    Hey guys,

    Out in Florida for a week for work, was lucky enough to land a 2019 TRD Off Road DC from Budget rental for the week. This is the exact truck I was looking to buy this fall when I relocate back to the Tampa Bay Area.

    I would love to get this thing in the dirt and on some light trails this week. Any location suggestions? I don't have the time unfortunately to drive out to Croom or Ocala National Forest this time. Anything between New Tampa and Pinellas would be ideal as my office is in New Tampa and family in Pinellas.

    Thanks for the help!

    I checked out the spot in South Tampa...unfortunately it has been completely fenced off and is currently being used to manufacture bridge expanse spans for what looks like the Gandy expansion.

    Ball joint spacers and lift blocks, am I doing it right?
    Has anyone been out RRR lately? E Flowler and 75, people use to wheel it.

    If this is still a secret spot send me a PM and I'll delete the post.

    Never mind RRR is no more, street view shows it's been plowed under.
