What an awsome trip! Thanks for all the fun and the company. It was nice to meet all of you. A special thanks go out to Lance for getting this all together and finding an excellent camping spot. Next time tell me when we're gonna be minutes from town so I don't bring the kitchen sink. :cry:

Also, thanks to Lance and Bruce for the excellent spotting that got me through that last obstacle without any damage.

Damage wise, some new rim scrapes, more skidplate carnage and a pretty rash on my right rocker panel. If I had only been one inch farther to the right...... Anyway, no dent, just a rash. I wish I had gotten those sliders like I had originally planned.

Correction: There is a dent!!

That was a great trip, I had a lot of fun I was really impressed my truck could handle as much as it did with just a locker, though I did get stuck once or twice
Just add a few more bags of concrete next time.

awesome pix. Did those trails have any bi-passes? Or did you guys just take the hard lines for posing pix.
Just curious if a stock taco with sliders would've made the trail with some minor bruises.

Sliders and a locker would be very helpful (reduced pucker factor), but we got Adams stock 4runner thru without a blemish on the holcolmb creek trail and he has neither!

Right where his sliders would have been a week after that trip. We tried to keep his truck damage free, but he did that on a section that didn't seem like it would cause any damage. We spotted him through the big rock gardens
