    Schnebly Hill Vista Overlook of Sedona, AZ - 3/25/16
    Last Friday, the fiancée didn't get off work till about 6pm which gave me time to prep the truck for a quick 1 night camp trip followed by our Easter weekend vacation to Sedona, AZ :cool: There's something about Sedona that both of us cant get enough of, which is why we plan to get married there in November! I knew it'd be a jam packed weekend with wedding planning, but I was more excited to finally camp. This was the first camping trip with Tron and also the first since the death of Rinzler...:pray: We finally arrived at the exit for Schnebly Hill Road off I-17 around 2200. By about 2330, the full moon was shining bright, RTT was set, little buddy heater was goin, and Nikki and I were looking out the window trying to grasp the amazing view we'd wake up to in the morning!

    Once morning arrived, I was like a kid on Christmas peaking out the window of the RTT. Despite the bitter cold breeze, I could not have asked for a better view!:yay:

    That tent setup is badass! Wish I could do something like that. What do you use as the floor that sits on the bed racks?

    Not at all, quite a few people did the same with my Tacoma haha
    I love it! it's the Tepui Ruggedized Autana. The ruggedized models sit on a diamond plate, check em out here Tepui Tents
    I chose MCM since Matt works close with ADS and basically does all the R&D for Toyotas. They make just as good a product in comparison for a good price point:thumbsup:

    Easter Sunday Broken Arrow Trail in Sedona - 3/27/16
    As much as I wanted to go back out and find another spot to camp, we caved and got ourselves a hotel room. I really couldn't complain about a shower ;), but we certainly had a beautiful Easter morning view with the sound of Oak Creek running.
    [​IMG]

    What's a trip to Sedona without Broken Arrow!? Of course the only thing I wanted to do when we planned this weekend trip was to test Tron out on Broken Arrow, technically it was supposed to be the first real test, but obviously Chiva and Three Feathers changed all that... I thought it'd be fun to replicate some old pictures too :cool:

    Nikki took the wheel for the more difficult areas, which I just felt better off spotting. It was a win/win since she's getting really confident in wheeling and I'm getting better with my spotting and learning how to maneuver this beast through obstacles!:D ....sorry I couldn't take pics at the same time tho...

    Now confident as can be driving TRON! This was the end of our awesome weekend in Sedona, wish I could make the big Tundra event in April but you'll definitely see us at the Overland Expo in May!:yay:

    So if anyone is curious to see where I want my truck to be in a couple years this would be it! SDHQ Off Road in Gilbert, AZ has done a phenomenal job on this Tundra! Everything about it is SEX! :drool: :drool: But in reality or "time being" I'll be focused on building TRON to reflect this tundra in a Mid Travel/Expo kinda way...doesn't really make sense to some, but for others you get the idea :thumbsup:

    Bone stock Pro with cab mount trim, would I be able to fit 35s with full articulation with zero rubbing?
