    How did you guys do with the weather last night? @Murph it looked like the Smyrna and Christiana areas got it worse than we did in Thompson's Station.

    We had a confirmed tornado sighting near us but it stayed to the west and north, thankfully.

    Hey Chris. Welcome. If you're on Facebook, be sure to check out the "Middle Tennessee Overland" group and also "Cumberland Cruisers". Both are pretty active and go off-roading together.

    Hey NewLife,
    Looks like there are quite a few folks near by, maybe we can do a little ride soon. Maybe WindRock? I am sure there are more places, but I do know that that place has lots of trails in all abilities.

    Right now I still have street tires, so I will be somewhat limited. Looking to upgrade suspension, tires as well as add some rock sliders. That should get me rolling for some more stuff. I am not wanting to get crazy with the off road stuff, just enough to enjoy some low level trails.

    Absolutely man. And don’t count some of the stuff out. A good set of all terrains will get you far at Windrock. May not be “ cool” trails but good trials none the less

    Another one from Knoxville here. I'm currently waiting on my 2021 SR5 Premium to make its way across the ocean. I'm looking forward to connecting with other 4Runner owners on here.

    For the record, The 2016 Trail is my 3rd 4Runner! My first was a 1995 SR5, great vehicle, only negative was power. It came with that lame 3.4L that just had no guts. Next was a 2003 SR5. Living in New England killed that one. The frame was GONE, but the body was still in GREAT shape. It was a great truck, but I am really happy with this '16 Trail. Here is a shot of the '03 just before it was traded in. They gave me NOTHING for the trade since they knew the frame was toast....

    is that a FJ Cruiser next to the 4runner ? Always liked them...in fact, almost bought one last year...but scored the 4Runner Limited, instead, at far less asking price....

    Yes, that was a friends FJ, the building in the background was an old mill building in RI where I use to have my studio. But now I work from my house here in TN. WAY less expensive

    Another question for the East TN folks. Any recommendations for a place to do the shocks? I don’t think I have the tools and abilities to do the job correctly.

    One other thought... Any recommendations for rock sliders? I am wanting the clean and simple versions, no steps. I had sliders on the 2003 and they were the ones that even tilted up a bit to protect the body just below the doors. But for the life of me I cannot remember the place I bought them from... this getting old stuff, sucks....

    I am getting a local guy to build me some 20 degree bolt on sliders in maryville and my wife is getting my sso sliders. She wants them for steps and I wanted angled to begin with filler plates.

    Hey NewLife,

    Any chance that your guy could be two cents of sliders for maybe 1.75 or 1.85 the cost? If he is cutting and welding, might as well make another set and save us both a little cash! If he needs help I can pretty good with a MIG welder!

    But if the price is the price, I am still interested in a set as well.

    Thanks!
