We had 6 Toyotas all banging on the rocks yesterday. Dave and family came down from Denver with his 80; Steve brought his 40, good buddy Land and Aunt; Sara and kids in the 80 with new sliders and rear bumper; Patrick and wife in his rebuilt recently rolled 80 with new 37's; JT was there in his 80; and me in the Taco.

We ran RJs's Trail and Arch Trail. Had a great time. Temps were up there, but the occasional cloud cover and slight breeze made it quite tolerable. Especially for those of us with AC :Princess: Dave was pretty amazing with his open diffs, but RJ's proved once to be a little too much and I got to use my new 9k Badland winch from Harbor Freight again. It's working great.

Trail Damage:
- Patrick smacked his rocker panel, back door no longer opens :hill:
- I ran into a tree while gawking at Noggin Hill on Arch Trail. Too gnarly for any of to even try. Broke the passenger side headlight mounts.
