Just into this and glad there are folks wanting to talk about going where it is quiet. I have been doing that in my old Taco for a long time and now moved UP to the Duramx 4wd with my For Wheel Camper on back (FWC). I had to add a leaf, sway bar, air lifts, and soon the 5100 RHA Bilsteins. The truck is terrific so far with 5000 miles. I have some concerns with the underneath protection. I added the trans plate but probably will have to buy the front metal skid plate ... gotta have that off road.... but worried about the oil drain plug(!?) bad placement. I undercoated with Fluid Film as I live in salt road conditions.
I have a hi lift jack and MaxTrac and chains for the bad stuff but not yet a winch... never got that deep in that the other stuff didn't get me out. Looking forward to tapping the deep well of knowledge in the forum on the back road folks... I am not a rock crawler for the sake of crawling... I just want to get off the grid into the outback and have a cold beer. Hope I can help others and exchange ideas...things that worked and most importantly things that didn't.
