Good day, impromptu trip for myself so missed the evening activities but good to see a lot of familiar faces and trucks out there!

Pretty eventful day, only did 3 trails total, Cemetery (+red loop), 22, and a black cut off of 1A I believe.
Group was Andy and I in my Runner, JT with his Daughter Addy, a new guy to us Daniel in a 86 Swaped 1st gen, and Killfoot with his son.
We headed straight to the south side and hit up Cemetery first.
Got to the red loop, where JT got himself STUCK, We got Daniel behind him to pull him out, but there was so much tension he broke a birf, lucky for us clean break and had a spare to get him going again!
Then we hit 22, where Killfoot (Chris) was taking one of the more fun lines, was getting denied, and then really denied when all we hear was pinion gear popping off the ring gear.
Got him winched out and then started heading back, hit the black off 1A and then played on the comp course a little.

Over all good day for us, good to see all of Toyotas out there!
Here are what I have and the link to my photo bucket of them!

You forgot JT got about 8" of air under his front tires on 22. I'm amazed nothing snapped! Also the white runner was a 85. We saw a Subaru on the south side too! Lifted with oversized tires and I believe sliders

We also realized more people need winches!

Had a great time, so did Addy. The trails were fun, Cemetery reminded me that I need to pay attention to what is ahead of me :D

Looks like I will be tearing into the suspension hear soon as it felt like I was just bouncing around way too much. I think the rear OME shocks finally gave up the ghost and the fronts probably are original to the truck with 200k on them :)

Yeah Bruce, when I get home I'll try to dig up a few pics of when I refinished them, I even got new center caps, which I dented one this weekend D'oh (not really stressed)

They are great though, the tires sit right where I need them and are wearing great imho thanks to them being 8" wide

What kind of drivetrain setup and diff gears is that navy rig running in that second link?
Leaf springs front and rear on 35" Goodyear MT/R's with a 22re, 5 speed and dual cases. Can't remember if Jason is locked both front and rear or just rear.

Thanks JT. I was pretty impressed to see it crawl up that obstacle with little issues.

He's lock front and rear. That wasnt his first attempt, it took a few shots to get him up. People would be amazed what they can do if they tried. It always brings a smile watching someone do a new trail or obsticle.

Him and Pat(surftaco) ran with us Sat and did everything we did.

Hey guys...Daniel here, owner of the white 4Runner in the above pictures. Had a great time on Saturday and definitely loving the 4Runner. Looking forward to getting together with everyone again.

Here are some of the pictures I took:

Avy they turned out really good. Didn't even realize they are now two toned. Looks better that way IMO.

I was originally going to have them media blasted and then resprayed but didn't have a set of rollers to keep my truck in usable form until they were done. Glad they were put to good use!
