    Got the call yesterday that my new TRD ORP came in. To say I’m excited is an understatement. Can’t wait to get this thing dirty. Heading down to Arizona to see my Dad in February and already booked and appointment at Westcott Designs for a lift, DOM sliders, and some tires. I'm still trying to decide on 285/70-17 or 255/80-17...I over research everyhing. Looking forward to piling on the miles and get some off-road/camping trips planned for next year.

    Thanks for all the great info here it's been extremely helpful.
