  1. Right on. It's good to have a rig to just drive.
  2. Cannot overstate this. So much of wheeling is understanding your rig and honing your skill. You'd be surprised at how far the stock truck will get you. Tires help a lot. Lifts and other goodies get you further, but you can easily hide an issue with ability with an overbuilt rig (and underbilt skill).
  3. Don't see those every day! Plans?
  4. We could do a virtual coffee night ... either by way of some existing platform (e.g. Skype) or I can stand one up for Backcountry.
  5. Per the state of emergency being in effect until April 5, deleting the coffee night for April 2. https://novascotia.ca/news/release/?id=20200322001
  6. This ... you will certainly alter your paint. At the very least you're going to get "pin stripes" in the clear coat from alder bushes, low branches, narrow track (tree branches on each side of the truck). The first few hurt ... then you don't even give it a second thought. Check out "high clearance" bumper mods for the Taco. I have no idea what is out there. I did look into mods like this for the RAM. With the RAM you actually have to cut part of the bedsides (that the bumper wraps around). You can do it right on a body line so it isn't even something you'd realize unless you looked for it. It nets you close to an extra foot or so of ground clearance below the bumper. Not sure what the degree of departure increase is, but significant.
  7. Yeah! I figured it was a close / safe place to take it solo. I had an hour or so opportunity so I went for it. Manual transmissions offroad are 1) great and 2) weird. 4 low + 1st gear and letting it idle down a hill is very nice. Conversely 4 low + 1st gear and letting it idle up a hill is weird.
  8. Looks like a good day at the Range! Soupy?
  9. @ovrlndr is absolutely correct; however, with a Taco you're likely going to be a-ok on most of the trails the club will run. Your long wheelbase (short bed or long bed is still "long") you might run into some of break over issues, but there are always options - different approaches, different routes, etc. If I were running a pickup I'd be most concerned about departure angle - dragging your rear bumper when coming down from a ledge or when ascending a steep hill (the transition from flat to grade).
  10. That is a big win! Congrats on the new rig for Mrs. Powerram.
  11. Per @ovrlndr's post on Facebook this is cancelled due to personal reasons.
  12. I moved the upcoming coffee nights in the calendar out to April. Will re-evaluate as updates are provided here.
  13. Ah, sorry to hear about your van. I think you got your money's worth out of 'er though! How many KM were on the clock at time of death? Do you still have @ovrlndr's old Xterra?
  14. Good call @TomWood. Are you thinking virtual meets of some sort?
