Just checking in

Just getting started in the forums,

I have a 1987 Toyota short bed with IFS.  Over the years I have grown comfortable driving increasingly difficult terrain.  I am not a hard core rock crawler – I find extended rock crawling tedious and boring.  But here is the deal:  I am tired of being “That Guy” – you know - the one who takes 4 or 5 tries to get over an obstacle on the trail, bouncing and spinning wheels, slowing everyone down.  I don’t want to be “that guy” any more.  I have run almost every trail in the San Juan Mountains and many others in Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah (including Moab) and often find some obstacle on the trail that is a challenge for my truck.  It just kills the day when I get frustrated trying to keep up.  I would never try Mickey's Hot Tub in Moab but would love to finally get up The Wall on Poughkeepsie Gulch in the San Juan's without a winch.

Will be seeking advice on some improvements.
1987 Std Cab IFS, OME lift, 33" Cooper STT Pro tires
TruTrack front and rear, 4.56 gears
Badland front bumper w/Warn 8000 winch, MC rear bumper & sliders
Corbeau Moab seats, shell w/roof rack

Even the most primitive society, has an intimate respect for the insane.
