    Mud is plenty of fun until you're finished and it's in every nook and cranny causing odd noises...

    This is why I try to stay out of the mud now. Been through plenty in the past. Figure I'll get an atv or utv and use it for when I want to play in the mud.

    If you're talking about mudding, the only places I went through mud is on designated off road parks or I had to go through mud to get to the other end of a trail. I never rutted a mud hole out more unless it was on an off road park. :thumbsup:

    I know that feeling! In my 96 Tacoma I had, we went to an off road park and my radiator got coated in mud because I didn't have a fan shroud at the time. Driving back home and it started overheating, so I had to use Gatorade and a grill brush to try to clean it off.... Haha Oh, being a silly teenager :D

    Nice! I pulled my friends 9" lifted bronco out once when it was on the frame, and a couple of times when it was stuck with my little 2.7 96. After that he had a lot of respect for Toyota's ;)

    Today I installed my CB radio and antenna!

    I wanted to be able to remove the radio as I don't think I will be using it all that often, so I used velcro to mount it to the left of the steering column and routed the wires through the hood release latch.

    Your grill and bumper look badass. So do your wheels, and your rack. Gosh dammit, your whole truck looks badass. Makes me want to start painting.

    nerp, I actually am not a fan of plastidip at all. I tried it and just didn't like it. Right now my grille is primered then painted with rustoleum flat. My fenders have nothing on them.

    After this weekend my grille and flares will both be painted with duplicolor bedarmor (actually more of a textured paint than bedarmor). So we'll see how that turns out.
