Default Roams SAS at GWNF

So I went with Tim a few weeks ago to one of the GWNF trails so I got to see the beast in person. There weren't a whole lot of places for him to really flex out but we found some play areas. Mine looks so tiny compared to the those 37 Toyo's.

Picky picky but no there wasn't a whole lot to look at yet this time of the year. Most of the trees were pretty bare but here is a link to the same trails with some fall foliage from last October.

Nice! Like you said, not much for wheeling 'round these parts that doesn't require a weekend stay. But still a nice day nonetheless. BTW, after seeing your truck, I spent a better half of a day installing the 06+ grill...relocating lights, trimming bumper, relocating solenoid, trimming grill...all for that.

haha nice but it does look better IMO. Did you go with the matte black aftermarket one like mine? Yeah after seeing your truck I cranked my coilovers up and bought 3.5" rear coils so I hear ya. Sorry it took so long to get these up I was being lazy.

Both trucks are looking good! Thanks for posting pics

Tim, your truck looks so much better now with the glassworks fenders!

Nice!
Tim,
how'd the new rear end do? I was concerned that I may have had your limiting straps too tight. ...from the pictures it looks like it was all working well.

Thanks! Your truck is quite the expeditionary build, giving me some good ideas...if I ever get around to moving out West. May have a line on something in SLC at some point in the future.

It's visually weak sauce, but with IFS, neither Jeff or I would go on this off-camber piece.

yeah it was a little tricky even with your rig now bc you had to make sure you stayed as close to the top as possible. The intimtidating part more than just rolling is that you roll over a cliff to your death. Not worth it to me to try with IFS.

Good looking trucks, thanks for posting them up! Hopefully I will catch a glimpse of the SAS awesomeness this coming weekend at Uwharrie. I am thinking of cranking my coilovers up a tad too!
