If you haven't see this around Instagram, figured I'd throw it up here too. The dude that was spotting had never been offroading, but I'm still not sure how he didn't use common sense to tell me I was too close, lol.

I like pushing my limits. Sometimes I have to learn the hard way, but no regrets.

Some times it just is what it is. When I drive boats for Uncle Sam's yacht club, I'd hit shit all the time. I wasn't trying to, but accidents happen, and the mission was always completed.


Now buy sliders. (Says the guy who doesn't climb rocks with his truck for fun)....

Ouch, live and learn. I tore my rear bumper off a few weeks after I got my taco. I got super lucky I didn't mess up the radar thing. I think those are $800 to replace

Sounds like $800 to put toward a high clearance.

I like the way you think. I had to get it fixed at the shop and just let them replace the bumper. I went through insurance and paid my deductible. I twisted the rear end up and was told the frame had to be straightened out. I believed him because my tailgate barely closed on one side lol. LESSON LEARNED - get spotters who have been offroad before :confused:

You would think that lesson wouldn’t matter. How hard is it for them to tell us to stop because the earth is in the way of our truck, lol...

famous last words.. "you should be good"
Who the fuck says that when looking at where my truck was?! I had room to move more driver side. I just needed to realize I was that close to the ledge.

That video still makes me cringe, the only person I fully trust spotting my truck is myself. It's nice now that my wife likes drive offroad, let's me brush up on my spotting skilz. Of course we don't have rocks like that in FL.:unsure:

We were there for that carnage. Hah
I like to live on the wild side.... but for real I’m getting dangerous close, time for sliders
What’s the point of sliders?
