Not wanting to start an argument, but if the teeth was even chipped something caused it to happen. Lost preload on the pinion or carrier? Deflection? Cap bolts bent? Any number of reasons, but it does not just happen on it's own. That means the diff was compromised. Yes, stick it in to get off the trail or get out, but to leave it like that before the event and then be signed up for hardcore trails does not make sense.

We go to great lengths to do tech inspections to make sure you do not end up with trucks that break on the trail and leave people stranded and cause inconvenience for other people. OK if you want to run like that on your own time and your own trails, but not when you are signed up for trails and leading them.

Sorry Tom, you might have gone by others advice, but I still think it was a bad call.

Afraid not but have seen the dark grey Tacoma and the silver 4runner of TX4runner's in some of my videos. Working on getting some more of those posted to you tube. I will post up links ASAP

Here is another one of my vids.

Any more pics on the flopped 40?

How did you guys recover it?

Gary, your spotting on Hell's was incredible! I saw the video, never saw that line at the top, really smooth!

Brady, what trails didn't you do? Pretty nice run of trails this year, jealous...
