Miller Jeep Trail 2016

Miller Jeep trail 2016 is history. This was a Great Trip with a little carnage but everyone in our group stayed rubber side down. Thanks to Tyler and Garry for leading and spotting a big group of trucks and 2 open/open jeeps

Post up your pictures and thoughts. Thanks to everyone who showed up.

Not a good sign.

boyfester,
Sweet photos!!!

I would also like to thank Tyler and Garry for all the work leading, spotting, and taking some newbies like myself up Miller Jeep trail yesterday. It was really cool meeting everyone yesterday and seeing so many splendid looking trucks!!

Thanks!

Hey All- Had a fantastic time on Saturday. Glad my mostly stocker 4Runner made it through without being tugged! The stock steps on the other hand.....

Your steps actually didn't do too bad. I think you could have gotten another use out of them...maybe John Bull or Dishpan.

Flashbacks from 8 years ago when I towed a different early 90's PU up that hill! This one was easier since he still had 2WD and could steer. Wasn't pulling dead weight this time!

Last set of photos!
That was a great day! Hope you enjoy the pictures.
I had a blast taking the shots. Wish I could have taken more, my cell phone needed charging half way through the day!

Hah I was with you on the run Garry. Dude seems like ages ago, I was your ride along pulling the 'Yota pickup up the switch backs at like 3am.

I saw these pictures and seriously thought it was the old ones from 8 years ago.

Old TTORA name was: 07PreRunner (I cant recover the pw for this account anymore for some reason)

But this is my new account.

Sweet pics though, MJT is a great trip, when you arent yanking folks up the hill at the end.
