      Been almost 6 years since I've posted my rig here (1st page). How the flies time..

      Thought I'd share an update:

          I'll second that, great photos Phil. Dig that tent, just starting to see them post up quite a bit on instagram.

          Also - good stuff RUFFLZ. All of you with pickups kinda makes me want the next rig to be one.

            Been threw a few different cars since my M42 bit the dust and became a storage queen around a decade ago. Snagged a triple locked 80 back in 2016 for a bit under $6k (ver nice, was a steal) that was bone stock with 265k or so, since then:
            • OME lift
            • ARB Short Bus front bumper / 4x4 Labs rear bumper kit / Trail Gear sliders / winch
            • SCS F5s that are now on BFG 37s, was running treadwright 35 MTs before that because my buddy runs TW's on his DD tacoma that's built up and had no issues and my inner cheap ass shines bright with tire purchases
            • 5.29s + a marlin crawler gear that hasn't been installed yet. Still a pig, but the 5.29s did help quite a bit
            • Nitro axles
            • Rebuilt the lockers so they engage consistently
            • New carpet and reupholstered seats
            • Rerouted the exhaust to get the cats up out of the way, pretty stupid design for a Toyota tbh
            • Wrapped the hood because the paint was obliterated
            • Tank in the back to air up
            • Other odds and ends replaced since it has over a quarter million miles
            On the to do list:
            • Prinsu roof rack
            • Storage/platform setup like Devon's
            • Replace the front seats as they are incredibly uncomfortable
            • Have the steering box rebuilt, may upgrade and run the west texas offroad ram assist setup

            My dad and I went up to Moab during the Easter Jeep Safari event, had a blast. We did one official group run and then went out and ran Behind the Rocks and Kane Creek on our own the next two days. Talked to a random group of 4 with some built up rigs at the trailhead on both trails and they let us tag along and helped spot, etc. Hamburger Hill on Kane Creek is at borderline shit your pants levels of gnarly right now if you're newer to wheeling. There was a pretty big backup to get to it and we went in blind, so I walked up the trail to the hill and was like oh....this is gonna be some shit. All the other people in the same boat as me who walked up to check it out looked like they'd just seen a ghost lol. Ended up winching the big ledge but made it through the rest. Definitely went well above my comfort zone on the trip and really got to see what the rig is capable of, I'd been out to sedona and in the desert but that was my first legit off roading trip in it with the new gears, etc. These things are some incredibly capable land barges especially when locked.

              Nice LC!

              Took my 2021 DCLB into Southern Utah with a good friend.

              Ended up finding an exquisite campsite that we pinned for a future trip at the end of an 8 mile trail through a wash. Ended up parking my truck 1/4 of the way through, as the trail simply became too tough for my unmodified Tacoma.

              Could only make it to the end with 35's, full skids, high clearance front and rear bumpers, and a lift. So I rode shotgun to make it there.
