    What’s up guys, I am new to this forum but have had my LC for quite sometime now, I really don’t try to do much off roading with our LX, as for that would just cost too much to repair if I were to damage it lol. and my other car is just too dam low to get it over speed bumps let alone any unpaved road.. Here are some pictures from today, went on a lil hike/picnic and did a lil off roading as well, hope you guys enjoy...

    (this is to all the serious off roaders, I know I might seem like a Panzy with the pictures below so my advanced apologies for not having any really cool pictures, but I was dam proud of my rig for what it did today being 100% bone stock) :grinpimp:

    This picture does not do this trail justice, it was pretty steep and it was so washed out.

    Welcome, Lexiss! Where is this trail? I'm guessing around Angeles National Forest...?

    Thanks a lot guys, I am starting to get to know all of you guys but from the little browsing I have done I already know that La Cabra is a beast. Much respect to you Alvaro, your car looks great, I cant forget Doug and Ken your rigs are beast on their own its just that LA cabra has more cool Pics, lol. Keep up the good work boys, and for those who are around me in LA like alaskacruiser and others, lets set up a meet, maybeh a BBQ out on the trail... Im game for anything on the weekends.

    Other than that putrid green, it looks like a nice truck (not a CAR). Keep the LX470 stock and use it for groceries and mall runs. It will serve you well in that capacity.

    Now, get busy on the 80 and post up some pics when it grows some hair on it's chest; lift, tyres, sliders, bumpers, and all that good stuff. :D

    As a matter of fact, my putrid green Tacoma needs a new brake pedal and wiper inserts. I might as well start picking up some common spares too.

    Will I still get my HDC 75% discount off of list?

    Looks good. I remember when I first got mine. I thought I would keep it stock. Next came tires, then lift, then bumper, etc....

    Tommy.

    Here is a pic of my wife driving La Cabra, the weekend after I got the sliders and the 2.5 medium lift kit on. We took on part of the Rubicon Trail, no lockers, no off road tires. The plate was a Xmas gift from her.

    Take it easy, you'll get there.

    Regards

    Alvaro

    Agreed - be careful, MUD is addictive as are mods! I started out exactly like you, only I have a good looking White LC. :flipoff2: Welcome.
