    Took the trailer out to Moab for a week.
    I have always wanted to go out there.
    Had a blast.. Stopped in SW CO on the way back, and ran through Imogene Pass near Telluride.
    We went through the 4 wheel drive trail in Arches Natl Park. It was not too bad, except we were supposed to run it North to South, and I went South to North..:D

    That first picture is the start of the white rim trail, starting Canyonland NP.
    It splits off after you get down through those switchbacks, with one branch going down to Moab. (that's the one we took.)
    When my wife first saw the switchbacks.. She was not too happy.. They look pretty bad at first, narrow road, straight drop off (on her side.)
    She wouldn't look out for the first few, but relaxed a little bit as we went on..
    She actually enjoyed Imogene in CO a few days later..

    I got through without even scratching the mudflaps..
    Took it slow in the big rock zones, trying to hit them without needing to use the wimpy stock skidplate.
    I did have to hit the button for the rear locker twice. Both on the 4wd trail in Arches NP. Once in deep sand, and once in a rock field where I was marginally on two wheels and only one was spinning.
    I was very happy with the Tacoma. We met three guys in jeeps coming out, and they told me I'd never get through it. Told me I'd leave my rear axle in there, and it was $1,000 to get towed out etc.
    Slow and steady.. 4 low 1st gear, it crawls anywhere..:cool:
