Mudding and Trailing pics

Went out to a local road yesterday with some friends. It was my first time really trail driving in this truck and it did great. Most of the road is loosely packed dirt or gravel with some mud puts here and there. I have a lot more pics than this, but i wont have them til later tonight. Happy Easter everyone!

Beginning of the trail, me driving.

These pics are about halfway through, after we found a small trail off the main trail that led to a lot of open area with a big mud pit. Very surprised how well my truck did.

This was after we got back home. The Tacoma in the middle ended up building up so much pressure in the radiator that he literally blew the bottome end tank off and we had to tow him all the way back home. Well, I didnt tow him, that Chevy 2500 Duramax did :).

And for those who are curious, my specs of my truck are in my sig.

Yea its 2wd. I honestly thought at times i would need 4wd but my truck really did awesome through everything. Its 5spd as well. I was definitely getting a little sideways though some of the corners with some well placed clutch kicks:)

Waiting on pics guys... sorry a friend took the rest and she hasnt sent them my way.

And yes, you do still see paint. We really only got halfway through through the road before we had to turn around because of my friends radiator. Would have been a lot better if we kept going though, the back half of the road gets a little more gnarly.

Careful kicking your truck sideways. As fun as it is, it's also pretty darn dangerous. I ran my old jeep off a small cliff doing that, and luckily had some rocks catch me rather then roll or go farther down the cliff.

Yea I definitely don't do it on the trail with a cliff on one side. I know what you are saying though, stuff can always happen, and i appreciate the advice.

Sorry for failing on the pics everyone, i still havent gotten a hold of them. I know this isn't the place to do this, but for a stock ride hight ranger like mine, are bilsetin 4600's any good? Are those the same as the Bilstein HD's that come on the level 2's? Tried searching but havent really clarified that one.
