    MIAtaco,

    And I quietly sneaked in. Avoided any embarrassing photos. More likely knowing not to put stock oem tires into that slime. Not even into the sand.

    That should change I hope.

    I did have the wife say that doesn't sound good when we were pulling away from the mud flats back towards the sand. The sound she heard was the ATRAC or whatever they call the brake gets applied traction control. You could hear the brake controller cycling (pumping) the brake to the slipping tire. Seemed to work.

    Fun meeting you guys and girls. I had thoughts on a few other local spots, when I looked while passing by, some were fenced.

    BTW, your entrance WAS very stealth like! I first glanced over to your general area and didn't even see you standing there. It wasn't until you were right next to me that I even noticed that you were there. LOL!

    Thanks guys. I live in Miami...there's no way I'm buying a truck at a dealership down here.

    Most likely I'll get one at a dealership in Broward or Palm Beach.

    Let me say this about the dealerships in Miami. I have dealt with quite a few of them down here as far as buying, getting parts for, or servicing the vehicles & I can say that Headquarter Toyota has a great reputation here. I never bought a vehicle from them but I will buy my next Toyota from them.

    My truck had a small rust spot.
    BEFORE:

    AFTER:
    [​IMG]

    I went there expecting to hear "we don't cover that" because I was 2 months away from the 60 month warranty on corrosion to expire. They were very helpful & friendly. Even took pics of the truck with the bed & rear window removed (necessary to access the area).

    BTW, It was the caulking type material that was bad & the metal just had very minor surface rust. They did a great job & gave great service. I'm willing to bet that their sales department is just as good.

    just to say i was out at that site yesterday and i saw a dodge caravan in the area and he was stuck in the mud where that excursion was at. idiots thought it was a 4x4. what dodge caravan is a 4x4, dam drunks. they said it was a company truck and that they wanted to see where the dirt road went to. i can only say that its because of the salt air is the reason why there is OSHA.

    WOW!

    Even if it was 4X4 those things have like no ground clearance at all. I rented one to go to the Smokey Mountains & I would scrape the front with those cement things in the parking lots.

    I'd be afraid to go throught that hole & I am atleast better equipped than a Caravan. LOL!

    I didn't even know what that is until I Googled it. I'm not going though. Except for one weekend, I have plans for all the other ones in April.
