    I traded in a '22 Explorer ST with the Bang & Olufsen system for my '23 Limited with the JBL system. The B&O was MUCH better than the 4R's JBL...

    Really excited to meet James in August. This guy's A-Trac videos and his 4Runner Vs. Jeep video convinced me to go for the 4Runner.

    The other day if my winch rope was a foot shorter, I would have been in deep trouble.

    I really envy you man. You've got the cool color (Nautical Blue) and a nice looking cabin up in the mountains.

    Man I wish it was my cabin! We were staying there for a few days while visiting Yosemite last summer. Nautical Blue is a good looking color but ugh, maintaining it is as bad as maintaining black paint.

    Drove to work today in the "nor'easter" in 2wd, traction control off (pushed the button for 7 seconds while in park)...Toyo AT3's, no issues.

    The 4runner is better in snow with these tires than my F150 was with Grabber ATx's and Falken AT3W's (to be fair, the F150 makes a lot more power though).

    After skidding out a nice maple tree from our woods, yes with our 4Runner, cut it up, split it and another trailer load ready to dry for this winter. Last year, this 2021 Premium pulled about 8 cord of wood like it was bringing groceries home. And pretty soon, time for the boat!5th Gen wood patrol.jpg

    Maybe its the angle but the back end looks like it's sagging pretty heavily.

    She goes down just a bit, but that's some very heavy maple, green, in there. But not really sagging in real life - front end is still solid, kind of like putting some bags of gravel or dirt in the back. She loves it!

    While replacing the upper control arm. This damn bolt refuses to budge. Making an already tedious job worse.

    Tried. It's slightly bent so it refuses to come out due to its length. Maybe cutting it.

    You'll have to cut it. The replacements are pretty inexpensive but you'll save lots of time

    Lots…
    I was down below pushing on it and had a friend up top pulling the other side of the bolt. Works well with a helper.
