    The ride down to Suagoro Lake was beautiful but the drive back was long. We found good campsites on side roads. I rode my mountain bike up to the peaks 3 times about 20 years ago. I was obviously studly. It was a long tough ride on a bike. Btw, we are doing box canyon near Florence Junction Sunday morning if you are interested.

    I would but I might have to hit you up next weekend or something. My 4Runner is going into the shop on Monday for a re-gear and front/rear lockers. I just had fun removing my skid plates tonight with the nuts losing their welds.

    Not mine, but these guys were stuck last week on Peavine Peak, north of Reno. Nice looking crew though.

    My 5th gen did the same thing. Welded nuts for the skid plate lost their weld. Toyota fixed it under warranty, but they were baffled. "I've got my two most experienced mechanics looking at it, and we still can't figure out what happened." So I asked a dangerous questions, "Could it have been from a strong front-end impact? There was one time when I did hit a berm pretty hard." They said, "No, we don't think so."

    Yeah I was blaming the company that installed my skid plates the entire time thinking they put the screws in there. Then once I got everything out I realized it wasn’t them it was Toyota who has the nuts in there. I think it was cheap welding and I didn’t have time for warranty so I went with my makeshift option. Now I don’t think that will ever happen again. I used anti-seize on every bolt.

    I am glad Toyota took care of you though and you got it fixed under warranty.

    Thanks for picking up the litter! I once read a comment in regard to litter "Instead of complaining about it, do something about it - pick it up" Carry on!

    Most of the guys we travel the trails with (including us) keep garbage tongs, gloves and garbage bags + bio hazmat bags for cleaning up the trails we are on. It is amazing how bad some areas are. The Rubicon is disgusting. It is not fun taking the 6 year old out when you are worried about "land mines" everywhere off the trail

    It's been good. I don't carry a lot weight up there. I also use it dog poop carrier, smell is outside. One pair of the boards will be going on my teardrop when I get it, and I'll mount an awning instead.

    Speak for yourself. The rest of us want to know! :boink:

    Also check out this video my wife made. Nice scenic driving in the 4runner and GX.
