not so new member in the springs

so i've been in the springs for a while and i actually came here with a first gen tacoma that was a pre runner with a drop bracket lift... it wasnt locked and it made driving in the snow next to impossible so i got rid of it. fast forward a few years and im back in a tacoma. i did it right this time with a 4x4. i've been semi active on the tacomaworld threads and lurked around here a little bit. i was approched this past weekend by another member and i figured i would give it a go on here. a little about my truck... its a white '12 access cab. OME lift all the way around with a CBI high clearence bumper with swing out. i got some sliders from BAMF, front skid from relentless and i have a front bumper coming at some point from them too. sits on some KMC addicts wrapped in 285 KM2's. i've been out on a few trails but nothing too crazy... i would say hackett gulch is probably worst ive done, except for some rock patches on a trail that meets up with rampart range road just south of castle rock. look forward to getting out some more this year coming up. sorry for the long intro post.

thanks for the welcome guys... only mods i really have coming up is my front bumper and winch and maybe a few small things. i really want to get wheeling this summer. i went out in feb with some guys from work and ended up screwing up my upper control arms so im a little timid on the snow and mud again... but after i get my winch on i'll be pretty set on doing some more technical runs. i'll have to get a few pics up like you said... im also surprised at how many awesome rigs are out here and how very few of them are on here or TW. actually last weekend before orange crusher saw me i must have seen 5-7 nice rigs driving around the north side. i guess im gonna just have to get a sticker to help spread the word!

oh i also saw on the CoTTORA.org that theres a meet and greet or something scheduled in a few weeks... whats that all about? is it acutally happening?

edit: i just added a few pics in the profile area...

Also for trails planned this year there is the calendar on the main page that is updated. Post up any trails your wanting to run this year in general discussions there is a thread on which trails people want to run.
Nice truck! Can't wait to see it in action.

Just depends. Alot of the time we go to rocky mountain brewery. They arent open on Sundays so might be old chicago. Any place you like to go?
