Back in February I took the truck for my first "off-road" adventure. i posted it in the Nor-Cal section.. didn't think I should post it here but it seems more people view this section than the local ones..

Here is the folder with all the pics:
Frank Raines OHV 2/15/10 - Baoser's Photos

Here are some of my favorite pics:

Entry to the Park, next to my buddies Titan (4" lift)

Pretty steep, or at least i thought it was. Truck made it up just fine

There are a ton of MotoX trails here also, it was super empty when we went. Only had to stop once for MotoX crossing our path.

big brother, little brother haha

New tires look sweet on the truck, and worked great also.

Going Downhill was interesting.. I got some good practice in tho

Shallowest of all the "puddles"

265/75/16 all stock no rub, plenty of room

break time in some shade for lunch

This was the best trail of them all. Tight, a few turns, and for me was the most difficult. Only trail that I got stuck, and had to reverse a bit and get a 2nd try. It actually continues to the right, behind the bushes and further along.

Should have turned and ran when we saw this.. lol instead tied on the tow strap in case i got stuck

Shallow end of the "lake" lol

Me staring thinking " no way will i be able to pull him out when he gets stuck LOL"

More downhill practice. it doesn't look steep.. but trust me it was.. well I thought it was.. I was actually worried about the going back up. I didn't think i could make it. Aired down, rolling start and i crept right up. it was freakin awesome!

This pic doesn't show how steep it was.. I mean one second there was no truck, then the next bam over the hill haha.. then the higher one was higher up, and a bit longer haha

Random pic before we headed back home

So it was a great experience. First time using 4WD, climbing some small hills, it was great. A lot more exciting than I thought it would be.

Great pics, thanks for sharing.

I think 1 thing that is tuff to do, is see in a picture how steep a hill is. I've climbed hills in my truck that the camera make look pathetic. I am always excited on the side of pretty much a cliff that I wouldn't want to walk up or down, and get home, see the pic's on my computer, and they are just not the same.

Try this 1 time. Take a pic of your truck on a steep hill, with a tree near it. One will see the tree growing straight up, and the angle of which your truck is going down. Might help ya to see how steep it was, but idk fo sho.

None the less, good for you man, getting out there and actually putting it in 4x4 and enjoying what you bought.
