Pics of your Colorado/Canyon off road or dirt/snow :)

Hopefully I'll have some better ones soon, still have yet to actually need four wheel drive. The truck is pretty capable in 2 wheel drive.

Here's some of my truck out in the Ocala WMA. Completely bone stock minus an air dam delete. Bit off a little more than I could chew that day. Got stuck in the mud, Had LOTS of mud to clean and effectivly used 100% of the stock (plastic) "skid plates".

Images are in no particular order. Just all from that day.

That looks like a pretty fun day, nice.

Here's some mud and snow i collected at a buddies acreage last weekend. There is still a shiny chrome Canyon badge on the door, it's just thoroughly buried in a half inch or so of muddy slush. 2wd did great, definitely need to remove the factory plow though.

Here's some old dashcam footage from driving on the beach last summer:

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=7rK6uxOqx-A


The Video is taken from my Colorado. The truck in front is my buddy's lifted 14' Tacoma. My truck is completely stock in this video, with air dam on. I was aired down to somewhere around 12-14psi. I went through a couple of soft spots that day that a few other people were getting stuck in. Even having to come to a complete stop in one, and still no problem getting through.

Had some fun yesterday between Murphy and Lake Alpine.

I pulled the Ford Expedition (CHP) and he pulled the 4 runner. 4 runner was stuck pretty good.







The 4 runner was stuck below the arrow/triangle at the top of the picture where the snow is fluffed up.



I had some tow strap with me but definitely need some more stuff.
I'll probably get some chains (for the tires), shackles to attach my tow rope to the truck.

Anything else you guys can recommend? I was thinking about getting a drink receiver hitch.

Did some more wheeling today





Going up would've been cool especially with the front wheel up in the air.
I wouldn't have been able to get up this without the diff locker.
I'm just glad she got out to record going down. The video does this huge hole no justice, it was the craziest thing I've ever gone up or come down.

A Hi-lift jack can be extremely useful, especially if you don't run a winch, as it can be used as a come-a-long as well as a jack. Also if you're willing to spend the $$ get yourself a set of Maxxtrax they really do work wonders.

I also always carry a shovel and a camp saw in my truck, if you live somewhere with snow, then you already know you need a shovel.

Might wanna invest in a hi-lift jack, a shovel, and maybe a set of those plastic ramps that you place under your tires(once you've dug them out that is).
The hi-lift is nice because you can use it as a mechanical winch, in addition to obviously raising the [in your case] errant 4-runner so you can clear the snow from under its rear wheels and throw the ramps down
Heck, you roll up with this set up, you might even be able to charge 'em

Hey that's in my backyard. Be careful going thru puddles in the ONF. That's a sure fire way to an expensive ticket if forestry or fish/wildlife see you. Best to go around water - if they see mud on the truck they'll get ya.

Here's my Duramax from tonight

Awesome, really appreciate the advice.
I'll have a Hi-lift, shovel for my next trip.
I did a bit of research and have an idea for my Hi-lift setup.
Thanks again

Nice color :)
I was sent to that place by forestry because Candy Rock Quarry was closed for the season. Super cool guy btw.
I'll definitely keep that in mind for my next visit, thank you.

Yea, it gets pretty bad but what's annoying is that the backside of the door handle gets just as dirty.

After I got my haircut today had about 15 mins to kill. Took it up a hill a few minutes away. Haven't gotten around to taking the air dam off since it hasn't given me much trouble and I don't mind it scrapping but might have to get it done soon..... mainly cause the pic would look better without it lol
