~ 2 months into ownership, Snugtop cap should be here in 2-3 weeks and I am researching how I want to do a drawer system / sleeping platform. Removed 60 section of the 60/40 split rear seats to build a platform for the pup and more storage underneath. Slowly acquiring recovery gear and taking it on trails as often as I can. Some southern CO exploration in the San Luis valley but mostly in northern New Mexico. First picture is up in Jemez mountains, next is north of the Valles Caldera off the Hoodoos and Calderas trail, next is a Jemez river fishing access, air mattress set up until the cap and platform is built, lastly San Lorenzo Canyon. Looking forward to doing more trips to AZ, Utah and Colorado.

Well now that's a sweet looking ram build, and I love the idea of removing the 60 for the pups. I just installed the Dirty Dog Pet divider in my Ram, and I will be building a platform/bed for the pups as well (3 overgrown rug rats). Keep us posted on the build please

Great looking rig, I’m so glad there are more full size rigs out there!

Gotta show the 4Runner some love! What is the story on the flat?
Lol, I wish I could use the excuse of some giant send but I’m reality it was just me being stubborn and dumb. It’s the typical slow crawl of misjudgment thinking that because you made it over the last downed tree you can clearly make it over the next. Just make sure you’re not on very thin ATs.

Spent a week at Land Between the Lakes in Turkey Bay OHV. Wonderful place to relax and test the rig out.






I’ve recently been in that area. I haven’t been to the Turkey Bay OHV area, but I’ve been buzzing around the forest trails. It’s really pretty out there. I’m basically in a stock Tacoma, with some mud terrains. Do you think I should hit Turkey Bay, or wait until I have some more added to my truck?

I would venture to say you'd be fine on the Primary trail. I don't know about further in though.

For me that day I was on firestone destination ats and they were thin and fully aired up. So entirely my fault for their puncture.
I will say I was entirely impressed with them though. No road noise at all, great mpg, and even good on rock dirt ice and light snow, unbelievable to be honest. However their thin, and wet conditions off of pavement could get you there but will not instill confidence. But great tires

Well, that happens sometimes. Once upon a time I would have never thought a branch or a log could puncture a tire. I have driven over plenty. Maybe your post will help to prevent someone else from doing that same thing.

One of the guys in my local 4x4 club who leads most of the trails I run with the club always calls out the logs or branches on or near the trail. He always says it can slice a tire as badly as a rock.

I would say they do.

Nice looking tires on your rig and how it is outfitted. Looking at new rubber for my HD. Used BFG AT's for years, went this last time with Toyo AT2.s. I liked them a lot, but with some med issues, the truck sat about 1.5 years with little or no travel. As such they have heat checking, and one had a blowout at 5 mph, so the other 3 are very suspect.

I'm Looking at tires, the Milestar Patagonias are in my sights along with maybe the Ironman MT's. Living in the SW, the heat just kills tires. For those like me who do not put lot's of miles on my rig, the overall mileage a tire might get does not become the factor it could be. That again is more due to 'heat checking' happening before tread life concerns. It becomes one over the other in almost every case.

What brand are the tires your using, and how do you like them?.........I am willing to put up with some compromises on a mud tire, as I under achieve the national travel average of 12,000 miles a year.....Pre Covid 19 of course:blush:
