Headed up to Tahoe National Forest with some buddies over the weekend for some camping and mild wheeling.

Going up the trail to Signal Peak













Made quick use of the new CBI bumper after I took a retarded line and wedged the rear against a boulder. I look cool, but I'm stuck.



Unstuck.




The line I should've taken.




Top of Signal Peak

Saw this sweet LC60 (I think?) on the way back to town. RHD and turbo diesel. Had a mag gray TRDP in tow but I didn't get to talk to him much.





Campsite for the night at Eagle Lake

Looks like a 62 series, 60's had a single headlight and 62's had the 4 lights up front. Nice trucks...slow as heck but nice.

Thanks for the correction, I know it was a LC6x something but wasn't sure. I did do a double take when I saw it was right hand drive- don't see them imported too much.

Not a correction, as it's RHD and diesel and I don't know for sure, but the US ones with 4 headlights were 62 series from the late 80's...anyhow, cool pics and nice trip!

There are definitely some benefits going to a dual setup (less likelihood of getting stranded, additional juice for winching, ability to do an isolated electrical setup, etc) but for my needs the single works fine.



Bang for the buck I personally would opt for the single every time, but depending on your needs this may be different.


Many thanks!

Apparently after the last trip my signal bulb fell into my headlight. No idea how it happened but it's gonna suck getting it out.

Nice trip! Eagle lake is a pretty nice spot to camp and a swing rope to jump into the lake.

How do you like wheeling with that RTT? Do you notice a big difference wheeling with it now than without it?

Nice! I've known mattjon since high school. He's been trying to get me to go out for awhile but we had a newborn so getting out has been some what impossible. I was out wheeling more in Vegas when my truck was stock. Lol

I've pretty much gotten used to it. Most of my trips lately have been camping and wheeling so it's been on more than off. In theory you want to keep your weight down as low as possible for stability but I don't really notice it. However I am a little paranoid when wheeling in the forest since I don't want to poke a branch through it lol.

Lol that's funny- what a small world. When you're ready to come back out it'll be nice to have you join us again.

AFE Pro Dry S Filter


I was tired of oiling the reusable TRD filter so I ended up dropping a AFE Pro Dry S into the TRD intake. The model number is the same as the OEM filter and drops right in.

The nice thing about this filter is that it can be cleaned/reused by vacuuming or washing, making awesome to clean after trail runs, etc. Filtration isn't as good as the OEM filter, but it is one of the best filters on the market.

ARB Twin Compressor Install

Installed the ARB Twin Compressor with the ARB 1-gal air tank using the @bandi mount. The install was pretty straight forward, and mounts near the passenger side firewall. Hoses were custom fabricated with hard line and SS braided hose.

Compressor and tank mounted up


Hoses run
