Had a GREAT TIME finally back on the trail.

My Tacoma has NEVER performed this great off-road and I can almost take all of my usual lines (I take in my '81).

I plan to do a trip report (and update my build thread) once I create more time. Until then, here come some of @SlowestTacoma!

A few moar :cool:











This was a bit before I returned home Sunday. It actually got up to 20.3 MPG over the last 153 mile leg which is just incredible. I was running solo fully loaded with passenger. No tail wind. No drafting. Cruise this time was set to 69 MPH and it does better than 65 MPH. This truck is getting better fuel mileage than my 2.7-liter Hilux. Outright insane how efficient the new 3.5-liter engine + manual transmission is on 40" tires loaded with Round-Up equipment so high I could not see out my rear window.



Went in from Loon on Thursday and then back out to Loon Sunday. The Taco has done the Rubicon 8 times now without any body damage :best:

Regards,
BigMike

Thanks! I wish I could take credit for it, but my coworker Colin made it. He has some great Toyota videos on his instagram @Colinsmithslo
