First Real Offroading With Runner (pics)

Well me and one of my buddies where going to uwharrie national forest to go wheeling a little. Well after planning to go several times and my friend backing out I decided to go solo. I didnt try anything crazy because I didnt want to get stuck alone or scare my truck up. I had a good time but I wish I could go with some one next time so I would not have to pick the easy line every time. I only had to turn around at one trail that I tried. I ran up on steep rock ledge and after turning around I got hung on a rock and ended up scatching my front bumper up on a tree trying to get around it.

I firgured some of you would never think you would see the day. ha ha

That is a good looking truck you have there.
How did she do off road? Did you have any rub with those 305s?

Thanks for the pics.

believe it or not no rubbing. My truck did great I thought. I went though some stuff with that was pretty hard with no effort realy. I did try anything crazy just going up and down steep hills and rock ledges. I when around all of the mud holes. I didnt feel like washing all the mud off. I just got a job at a bank and I dont think my runner sitting out front covered in mud is what they want to see.

thanks for all of the complements. I realy had a good time but I am sure it would be better with some freinds.

Good looking rig!

What's so bad about taking the easy lines?
I take the easy lines all the time. Save the hard lines for when you don't have an option

Nice! I did a little off roading myself in the Cascade mountains but I forgot my camera so I can't prove it. Looks fun!

Hi there, Great looking 4runner. I was just curious if your runner is a 4x4 or 2x4? If 4x4, how did you lift your ride that high with the infamous cv angle limitation? I've had this problem forever and looking for a way out. thanks for any advice
