    Thank you, I'll head over there and take a look. I've been reading at the expedition portal too.

    I guess that one came back to me, haha.

    @atlastrekker awesome!!! I'm sure you're going to really like it. The best upgrade I did to mine was the winch on the front. It's gotten me out of a few jambs. Have fun with it brother!

    It's a lease, but as long as no wrecks happen with this one we'll probably keep it for a Loooooong time.

    Did a trail run today with the Colorado FJ Cruisers 4wd club. Here are a few pictures.

    @BigBubbaJ set up a portable HAM radio station that was solar powered and was able to raise contacts as far away as Alabama. Not bad for a 10W radio set and an antenna that he sling-shotted into a tree!

    good pictures! I like Colorado off-roading. The ham radio looks to be an Elecraft KX3

    Well.... so I guess in my family inherited doesn't mean the same thing as everyone might think. I THOUGHT it meant that I would be the owner, but what it really meant was that I was to sell it an split the proceeds with everyone in the family. I'm pretty deflated right now, because I really was excited about this vehicle! Oh well, I guess there is always other cars out there.

    After the family debacle I actually ended up coming out of the deal pretty good. Here's the toy I ended up with.


    2017-06-12 16.38.35.jpg

    2004 Tacoma with the 3.4 V6 and a 5speed. It has the e-locker and new wheels with Goodyear Duratrac tires. I just ordered an ARB front bumper to house the warn winch, too.

    Expedition build coming right up!

    Got some new shoes on our Rav4 to handle the mountains - BFG KO2s for mud, snow, and sharp rocks.

    That';s a good looking Rav Brew! I wish they hadn't changed the styling of them so much recently!

    Thanks! Can't believe they got rid of the V6, too. This one has 269 horse, about the same as our 4Runner, and it really moves, too.

    I've heard and read that they are very good tires, but I would be interested to hear what you think of them after a while @Brew-Jitsu. They do look good on there.

    I've been using a set of KO2s on our 4Runner since we purchased it last October, and they have performed beautifully. I drive around other vehicles in snowy traffic as if they aren't moving, and they work very well in mud and dirt, too.

    Before I bought either set, I had a chance to go off-roading with @Crazysanman , who also runs KO2s, and you can see many examples of terrain he's conquered in this thread.

    Thanks for the input. My "new" truck has Goodyear Duratrac tires on it currently, but when I go up a size I might switch over to BFG tires. The Goodyear tires are awesome in the snow as well, but I think they are quite a bit heavier, which may be good or bad.

    King coil overs for the Tacoma. Looking into upper control arms now, so until then they are set at only 1" of lift. Man, they ride good!

    Look what showed up on my door step today!
    2017-06-20 15.53.47.jpg

    After a bit of early Christmas unpacking fun....

    2017-06-20 15.54.06.jpg

    Woooohoooo!

    The only bad part is I'm shipping out tomorrow and won't be home to install it for over a month! Boooo!

    Oh well, I'm sure it will be a great addition to the taco, and for many years to come.
