Eating Taco's for lunch

My buddy has a new Tacoma and they had a meet Sunday (yesterday) so i tagged along. They ALL kept getting stuck and showing off doing it to. So me being a Ford owner and freak had to show them up. Pulled 3 of them out several times. They were all about mud so I showed them the rocks and wooded trail bunch of excuses lol but here are the pics.


This just happened to get there


lets try the other way

My turn for fun

I'm wondering the same thing. I wouldn't even drive my old truck through that.

Nice pictures. Looks like a good time.

I'd take my Bronco through that but I'd never get my Ranger near it. Mudding is hard on trucks. **** gets in every nook/cranny and wears parts fast.

I didn't think a warranty covered **** like that, especially if you hydrolock the engine. My buddy just got a new Tacoma trd. Whenever we go out on the trails, I always ask him "you sure you wanna take that $30k truck through that man..." Looks like alot of fun, I don't know if I would drive my baby into that pond though lol.

I agree. Mud is yucky and bad for components. I try and say away from it as much as possible. Give me rocks/trails/tough terrain and I'm fine and happy.

Great pictures btw. Looks like it was a fun/good time.

All those commercials have disclaimers about offroading them

No dealer will cover a warranty if you took it offroading, they probably told them that, but they weren't listening

Kind of like retard Raptor owners who cry foul when the frames bend when they take them on jumps

x2...Dealers will do anything to find an excuse not to cover your warranty. It's sad.
