    There's soo many different variations of offroading across the world/country - it'd be nice to get an idea of what types of offroading everyone is doing and what/how you build your rigs for it. What types of cultures do you have in your area of offroading? ETC. Answer the questions below and if you have pictures - post 'em. This is all about the terrain. If you wheel something other than your tacoma, your input still applies!! Post it!! 4Wheeled vehicles only please (no ATV experience). Please - no debating on why or what people do. If you have questions - feel free. Just make a note to understand each others culture.
    We don't need to know personal reasons why you answer the questions the way you do. Your reasons & thoughts aren't up for debate.This is strictly a list of information for everyone to read.
    Enjoy!!

    Do you have or are you exposed to a trail rating system? Somewhat
    If yes - what are the trail ratings?

    What's the minimum requirements to go trail riding in your area? (in other words, what's the lowest vehicle requirement you'd expect someone to have to go offroad with you). I see people mud 2wd stock trucks all the time, but I wouldnt suggest it.

    What's the biggest & most built type of rigs that you see wheeling in your area? (you know the ones.... basic description). Fullsized trucks with massive lifts with mud terrains and 20" wheels. All they ever do is mud

    If you were just starting out (in your area), what modifications would you recommend first? (list modifications only please). Diff breather and tires

    If you're a seasoned wheeler - what other types of modifications would you recommend? (list modifications only please)

    If you were to take a totally new person on the trails with you, what do you teach them (in terms of tips & techniques for driving) before going out? As slow as possible, as fast as neccessary

    Wheelin Terrain Questionnaire - Trail Etiquette

    Are you familiar with what trail etiquette is? (yes, no, or somewhat) Yes

    What's your basic description of what trail etiquette is to you? Not tailgating the truck infront of you, warning others of possible areas that could get rough, helping a stuck rig if possible, making sure you keep the area clean and pick up garbage

    List some very important trail etiquette that you enforce in your area? (could be lengthy if needed....)

    If you were to take a totally new person on the trails with you, what do you teach them (in terms of trail etiquette) before going out? The slower the better

    Wheelin Terrain Questionnaire - Your experience

    List your modifications? (basic list please). 32" BFG A/Ts

    What's the worst situation you've ever been in while offroad? Getting stuck on the beach at 9Pm with a dead battery.

    What's the worst situation you've seen happen to other people? Friend broke a rear u joint on his YJ 5 miles in the woods, at 9pm (dark as hell), in the rain, on a muddy trail. Fun

    What's your biggest (could be anything) concern while offroading? Safety.

    Wheelin Terrain Questionnaire - Safety & Technicals

    What's your biggest concerns about safety while offroading? Rolling

    What's the most important thing you'd recommend to someone (about safety)? Not to us a tow strap for recovery, wear your safety belt.

    What's the worst breakage (or carnage) you've experienced?
    So far, nothing.

    What's the worst breakage (or carnage) you've seen other people experience? Rear U Joint broke at night in the rain on a miudy trail

    Plan? We usually have our jetskis on the hitch. Our plan is to go jetsking and wheel during our breaks. Not too much to wheel at the beach but still fun. But seriously, bring a buddy cause the ocean doesn't care how pretty your truck is.
