    hello my name is Scott. I live in SoCal, San Diego. I have a 2003 Toyota Tundra SR5 TRD Sport 4.7L stepside. I have been doing some engine mods and it is lifted 2 inches and larger tires. 285/65/16. Nice to be here and look forward to learning much more about my truck and off-roading as a moderate level driver. Thanks

    Welcome from TN!

    I'm not an offroader by any means! the only offroad I do is when i'm hunting and fishing!

    A few things that will save your life is a portable compressor, winch, shovel, offroad jack, and a buddy! LOL

    Thanks everyone. I am not a serious off-roader. My truck is not quite built for extreme stuff. I see a lot of people from Colorado. I go to Wyoming a few times a year to visit my parent and hunt antelope

    Everyone knows that the Pro is more powerful than a locomotive and able to leap tall buildings at a single push of the accelerator!
