    So last weekend I finally had a chance to really test the limits of the Tacoma (well, not really, but still my first time out in this level of trail). It was alot of fun and I really enjoyed it. Managed to get the Tacoma stuck a few times, this one was pretty fun. It looks waaay worse than it actually was though (just because of all the mud spraying up haha!)



    Pretty easy to pull out, just need a little tug and we were on our way again..





    Some clips from the day out...


    Shortly after the part where we were stuck, I was coming around a sharper corner and the rear wheel had lifted slightly, as I came down I landed ontop of a chunk of ice that was seemingly indestructible. It left a small 2" dent on the lower rocker, can't even see it unless you really crouch down. After some back and forth deciding if I wanted to fix I figured I'd just do a little touch up paint on the spot and then leave it. I'll be covering it soon anyways with sliders.

    I was also out there shooting some work for a company called MORRFlate. I'm really happy about this one because it's starting to feel like this could become a full-time type of thing someday, doing photo and video work for companies, etc.!
    Here's a few shots and a video I put together.

    I like all of this a lot. Man years ago I did the "jeep safari" think in vegas, and had a blast, and the guide had something like that morrflate device to do all four tires at the same time. Blew my mind, but makes so much sense.

    Are you using the factory hook for recovery, or did you add something specific?

    It came to $179 USD for the Morrflate + $40 USD shipping, but thankfully no additional duties or taxes upon arrival. Shipped via Canada Post and arrived within 7 days after in my community mailbox. I'm actually really happy with the quality because of one specific reason. When you look at hoses and stuff like this, (and before I was pricing out a DIY kit and making it myself and the price was starting to get up there above $100 with the fittings and hose, and I hadn't found a gauge that would work) alot of the hoses were that hard type of hose. Not even sure the name, but it's way stiffer. I wasn't sure what to expect but when I got it I was really surprised how light weight and loose the hose is. It reminds me of a very flexible type of rubber if that makes any sense LOL...... Very easy to maneuver it around the truck, no problems getting things lining up with the valve stems, very easy to neatly loop the hose back up after. (I thought it would never fit back into the bag after I opened it lol)

    Sorry this probably sounds stupid but TLDR; Hose came in and whatever it's made of, makes such a nice difference.

    Yup we just used the factory tow hook on the front (open loop) BUT we used a soft rope shackles and a kinetic recovery strap, from these guys here: https://www.gemstoneoffroad.com/

    Picked up some sequential turn signals for the mirrors. Install was the easiest I've done so far, only took about 5 minutes each side! Very happy with them and how they now match the headlights turn signals!!

    If you've got a few minutes to check out the video I did and leave a comment, I would be very thankful!



    We also had an awesome day out in Banff this past weekend too driving the Tacoma! I'm reminded especially on highway drives into the mountains how much I enjoy this truck. Just feels so solid cruising through the mountains and pulling over to check out the views.

    Been a while since any updates here, things have been busy! Hope you guys are having a nice Christmas / Holiday time!!

    With the recent dump of snow I was pretty stoked to take the Tacoma out in the deep stuff to see how it performed. I found the General Grabber A/Tx's made easy work of the snow, but as expected, significantly less performance on ice! The added weight on the back with the bed racks, tent, and new rotopax I found made a nice difference in just helping gain traction from a stop / slow speed. You definitely need to turn traction completely off though before you head into any super deep stuff. It felt wrong to have a truck and not use it so the day of that storm I was out the whole day helping cars that were stuck. Only needed to pull two cars out though, I tried using the recovery board and such as much as I could (and they actually did a fantastic job!)

    New Rotopax, 7.5L each, they're way heavier than expected!

    Good call on turning off traction control. @killramos needed that tip.

    Not enabled in 4Lo my friend.

    Do Fords even have transfer cases?

    Good video.
    I actually put it on mute and blasted to the old Superman theme song. It actually goes pretty well...
