Ever been done? Specifically an IFS Tacoma?

Do you think it's remotely possible with a good set-up, good spotter and a healthy assortment of spare parts?

Anything is possible. You will work your CV's but if you've got a couple spares you can get through it I think. A good spotter will help for sure. Plan on some body damage. Drive carefully without hammering it with a ton of throttle and you'll be fine I think.

You'll definitely hit your limits of flex too.

Well, then this should be fun. I don't mind body damage and am expecting it... especially from the squeeze. Gatekeeper will be a lot of fun with how little my front end articulates..... lol

Answer = Yes

Soo, figured I'd update this.

I ended up completing Upper Helldorado (with one heck of a spotter) in 2.5 hrs with a winch up waterfall and a broken cv axle coming out of the squeeze... No big issues anywhere else. Total body damage was a good scratch on my driver cab panel from gatekeeper.. easily could have been more. :cool: My bedside got a fraction of an inch away from the wall going through the squeeze, but only the cb antenna hit. (Dovetail FTW, brah.)

It was awesome, though!! Fun little trail..

Wish I could have made it to that run. Life got in the way though.
Looks like a great time otherwise.
Way to go buddy.
