Went up into the Bridgers today and did some fun little trails. It never ceases to amaze me how damn well these things do in stock form. My buddies '89p/u doesn't do all that bad either... although he envies the cruiser and wishes he had one. I tell ya, doesn't get much better than going out on a thursday and showing up/kicking all the hunters asses in their chevy's, ford's, and dodges. Viva la' Toyota!

Hey man. Sweet pics. Lets go Saturday. Blaine gave me your number so ill call you tomorrow. I want to go down to jackson creek. We can hit a pretty good hill climb and some other trails around there.

We probably wont be able to make it up the hill climb with all the snow but we can winch up the last part.

btw did blaine use his chains?

Ya know, I had a mini truck, and it did great off-road. But it had to work hard to go. The LC is much better ballanced. I miss the mini truck though.....

Great pics.

I would have killed to have had my LC when I lived in Bozeman after college in the early 90's, That place is incredible, like another planet. Unfortunately, at the time I had a 89 Nissan Sentra .. Although that car did go up mountain roads where no Sentra had gone before and you know it did a pretty good job :D

Today Zach went wheelin again. I took him on a trail off jackson creek and i brought my other friend in a large red dodge.

Its amazing how well stock land cruisers do. Zachs truck worked flawlessly. I beat on mine hard and got stuck many times. We also winched up this one hill for about and hour. Took forever.

I learned today that Mud Terrains suck in snow and ice. Thats why i bought chains but i never bothered to put them on.

Those definately look like some sick trails. How deep is the mud/water pit in the pic on the right?
