    Not build thread related but I visited a buddy at his work today. They have some incredible rigs there, was amazing to see!

    So no updates on this for the tacoma. I’ve been working on my bronco project.

    Fixed this mess. Water pump was leaking from the weep hole, and I think I found out why the thermostat wasn’t working.. tons of gunk in there.8D50F75D-9D4F-40C4-BD21-CFDEE8D20AD2.jpg

    New tstat, bypass hose, water pump, distributor cap and rotor, spark plugs and wires.BE38526C-69BD-4F57-9826-8C0D66AF9F95.jpg
    Then I replaced the power steering likes because they both were leaking bad.

    I also had to take apart the whole devil sent steering column. Ignition acuator was broken, and the turn signal switch. It was a pain in the ass but I got it all fixed now. I still have a lot to do, but it’s getting there. I feel like I have made good progress in a week for just working on it when I get home from work

    I also bought a new daily to drive. Projects out the ass!

    Awd turbo fun time. Needless to say the tacoma is kind of kn the back burner for now. I am mostly focusing on the bronco for the time being. Once I get all the little issued fixed up I am not sure if I am going to keep it or sell it. I’ll cross that bridge when I get there.

    Took my little brother on his first offroad adventure, We were gonna run up to skyline or near by there but with the rain I knew it would be closed so I chose City Creek trail which should have just been an easy fire road. Since we were alone and it was his first time I didn’t want to scare him too bad lol.

    As you can see at the beginning it was pretty tame with some nice views.

    It was after this point that things started to go down hill very quickly. The remaining 5-7 miles or so had a lot of areas that were clay with the rain starting to come down hard. It was very hard to control the truck and I was sliding all over the place. A few times I slid against the wall and thought for sure my truck was going to be dented to all hell. We eventually made it through very slow and steady. I will say tight switch backs and snotty clay is a somewhat scary experience. In this situation I am not sure that my lsd rear end was helping as it felt the rear wheels were turning my truck not the fronts.

    Closer to the exit the rain turned to snow which was awesome.
    When we finally made it out I parked next to some heavy equipment so we could celebrate not dying and also have fun in the snow for a little bit.

    Overall it was a great little trip. Definitely reminds me of the dangers going alone especially when it is raining out.


    We plan on hitting up Ocotillo wells next weekend for Tierra Del Sol 2020. Should be a fun time to go play in the desert and watch people beat the piss out of their rigs doing things I would never take my truck through.
