    Finally did it. Got to see Colorado and finally get to check off Black Bear pass. Man, this is by far the most fun but most scary trail we’ve done. Had a small mishap near the waterfall with a sliced sidewall but other than that it was such an awesome beautiful trail. Here’s my full trail review and adventure:

    Hey MoonTaco, have you ever considered adding some lights to your truck?

    It is technically "off road" but hardly offroading. Little surf fishing this morning.

    Just added toolbox and roof-rack to haul my fishing boat 100's of miles into the backwoods every week. Goodrich K02s, Bilstein 5100 front and back, no lift.
    Another fishing trip, 4 days fishing small remote lakes in the Lac Le Jeune area. Caught a number of 16 inch rainbows. Got to fish alone again at 3 small lakes. In my books no company is the best company when off road. If I see another human, I might as well go the mall. :)

    One of the lakes had some white barrels left over by wildfire crews when they battled a blaze near the lake. I wish I could have hauled them out but the truck bed was packed to the gills.

    Pulled my rear bumper on the left side back about 1.5 inches in a deep washout. That was further on the spot that had that 110km/h speed limit sign. That was the starting point of an ATV trail. I made it a few miles down and through a number of washouts, but then the trail was blocked to 4x4 access. Sucked as it was only 6km to the next lake, so I had to detour 30km around to get to it. Was worth it though as the weather and fishing were great.

    Tomorrow get under the truck to inspect the damage, but I think it is pretty minor.

    Any suggestions on a better offroad rear bumper, that does not weigh a ton and does not cost a fortune? I've bumper dragged it at least 500 times with this truck now, but that's the first time the rear bumper has sustained any damage. Something low profile and trim but rugged. Not going to change the front bumper, it has not dragged on any of those washouts. The front skid has worked well. Just the back end due to the longer overhang on these Taco's.

    Wow, looks like awesome terrain to use your truck to the fullest, or near fullest potential for what its built for. I thought you would post a pic of that rear bumper.

    Have you considered installing a dashcam? Would be fun to see some of these washouts you encounter as you approach them. AND, there's a good chance of catching a BigFoot as well.;)

    Yeah thought of the dashcam, but just too much tech. For me, it takes away from the experience. Instead of enjoying nature too much time is spent documenting it. Christ, I have at least 10 hunting trips with my father where we never took a single picture with a camera, but the memories are all there.

    And lets face it, outside of Tacoma World who wants to see it? How often do we want to sit down while someone shows us pictures from their vacation? Not me anyway.

    When you have to drive through 40 washouts in a day it becomes old news and I have no desire to take pics. Plus we all know the pics seldom show what it really looked like. Maybe a better photographer than me can figure out how to take those kinds of pics.

    For me the whole experience is about solitude in nature. It’s not about the truck or the washout or the trail. I have no interest in testing the trucks abilities, done that decades ago with other trucks.

    No bigfoots yet, but have seen a lot of grizzlies, moose, deer, etc. Bigfoots are clearly the most elusive of them all….

    I like your attitude. :cool:

    But you never know, having a dashcam could help out in the unfortunate event on the streets as well. I got a dashcam, FitCamX, and I don't even know its there, but I do know that if anything strange happens :drevil: I GOT IT on video.

    You should post some pictures of the gear and setup you use for surf fishing. I have fished for over 50 years in lakes, trolling lures and such and also 30 years of fly fishing. Plus ocean fishing for salmon, cod, halibut etc.

    I have never had a chance to surf fish. That would be fun.
