    Has anyone in the area ever done The Wisconsin Adventure trail? It starts down near Galena, IL and ends in Superior. It was originally a bike trail but with a little adaptation to go around the ATV trails it can be done in ORVs. Some friends and I are going to run all 610 miles, but the only time we can all get together is in late September.

    New Wisconsin guy, here. Transferred from Tacomaworld.

    I'm actually thinking about taking a ride out to Grant County today and checking out a portion of the T.W.A.T.

    Hope to see/meet some of the members here at an event.

    We're trying to put together a gathering on Tacomaworld. I'm lobbying for a gathering of any Toyota trucks/4×4's.

    I'll post any information about it here as things come together

    Green Bay here. I’ve watched a few YouTube videos of people doing that trail. Always wanted to give it a go, but haven’t yet.

    Your 4Runner's looking good man!
    How are you liking it compared to your taco?
    I'm picking one up Monday if all goes well. Looking forward to catching up at a meet to check out your build

    Thanks! I'm absolutely loving it! The ride is nicer. The motor feels more refined and you definitely notice the extra power. It's quieter.

    I recommend getting one with KDSS unless you plan on doing a significant lift.

    I might be a bit biased as I owned two 4runners before the Tacoma. But, I really think it's better in almost every way.

    Are you keeping the Tacoma? Or trading in?

    I'm really hoping to get a Wisconsin Tacoma/4runner/any Toyota 4×4 gathering of some sort put together soon. It's been hard to get people committed, though.

    Either way, good luck Monday! Congratulations in advance! I can't imagine you'll be disappointed in any way, except for the stock tires

    I think this picture is a good display of the amount of flex allowed by the KDSS. Of course, it would probably just be a hindrance if you plan on lifting it very high

    I'm purchasing from a private seller, so unfortunately KDSS isn't an option. I'll be keeping the Tacoma and hopefully keeping thr 4runner close to stock for a long time. Once the weather warms up a little more it'll be easier to get some people together.

    Not sure whether I belong here or not but I am so close to Wis I may as well be part of dairy country. I am in far northern Illinois, about 5 miles from the border, east side. I would be up for a road trip to hit the trail if anyone is hitting it.

    Cool! Looking forward to a gathering of any type. Maybe a group cruise up the T.W.A.T this spring. Also hoping to do a camping outing up near the pipeline.

    What year 4runner? Trim, ETC?

    Welcome! I've been thinking about coming down to Illinois for a meet sometime as well. I'll definitely post here if I make any plans to hit the trails. Hope to meet you sometime this spring/summer.

    I might try again to get a few guys together somewhere in southeastern Wisconsin next Sunday as this weekend sort of flew by

    FYI, a few guys are meeting at Potosi brewery tomorrow at 11am for lunch and hitting the T.W.A.T.

    No real plans. Just lunch and a cruise down the back roads.

    If anyone's interested, message me or just show up at the brewery tomorrow.

    I'll be the guy with the 4runner:D

    Saw this today on my way home from a trail run with a bunch of guys from Tacomaworld.

    Anybody here? 3rd gen, I think, only because my '94 had a different tailgate set-up.

    Good looking truck!
