I just do a lot of camping as well as boarding and I love the idea of having a portable mini-apartment. I love everything about them. It just makes the truck so much more useful. I couldn't care less about looks, I am way over that phase. Also being able to lock everything up because I am paranoid about someone stealing my shit.
camping in it would be the only reason i would get one, but if i need to camp ill pitch a tent or recline a seat if its winter haha, but i doubt ill be camping in the winter. I like being able to just throw shit in the bed and not worry about dragging it out the back. The dirtbike cant fit in the back with a top, and since i wouldnt camp in the winter there is no point, but if you are planning on camping it would be pretty cool.

Haha ... when you get sick of playing with your toys and want to step up to the real thing we'll be waiting for you.

In all seriousness there is nothing wrong with a Toyota. They are very dependable and do pretty well off-road.

I just moved to CO (well about 9-10 months ago) from super-flat MI, and I'm considering getting a Jeep (would really like to get a 2012 JK Rubicon Unlimited... we'll see though, as they're about $40k+).

Are there easy trails to get into, build your skill/navigating, before you get into the one in your photo?
Trails are rated on a 10 point scale. However, I've found that it really doesn't matter that much.

Just like snowboarding the weather conditions tend to dictate a trails difficulty.

Here in Tahoe there are some trails that get rated a 6 or a 7 because of 1 obstacle and the rest is basically a road with 12" boulders to go around/on.

Other trails like the Rubicon for example. Last year without a lift and 35"s a stock JK would be in for a fair bit of trouble. This year the Rubicon has been quite tame and a stock JK with 32s could cruise through it.

i am a truck guy through and through. I will never own a jeep haha. Everyone on my tacoma forum pretty much hates jeeeps (jokingly of course). I guess you can call it a rivalry, but any time anything jeep comes up it is usually followed with much flaming.

its because you people are all like this

me and my friend are guilty of that sadly (just once though). There was a big ass snow (was really ice) pile in a parking lot and we decided to take his 4x4 f-150 through, and the thing sank, got high centered on the frame, and the tires dug themselves holes and were just spinning freely...that was pretty funny haha. ill find a pic and put up here later.

There are all kinds of trails around of all different difficulties. Some are right off the highway and some are hard to find. Some are easy to navigate and some are near endless mazes.

You don't get into it by buying a $40k vehicle, that's for sure. I bought my '97 Tj totalled in '02. Altogether I have about $7500 in it.

Buy something else to drive and go buy a used Jeep. I built a CJ-7 back in high school that was a beast but I honestly have more fun in my little TJ. I can always find a challenge in it where as I used to have to drive 3+ hours to find a challenge in the CJ. Build a rig for your local trails, whatever you can get to in 2 hours or so. Those are the ones you'll be running 95% of the time.

I think I'm like member #274 or something over on the PBB. I've been there forever.

Off-roading in Colorado is my summer love. Sooo many trails with sooo many camping spots. We should get a trip planned!

What do you guys think of Tundras, 2009 and up? I want one so bad.

And even though I'm 3 hours away from the mountains, do I get the 4x4?

The newer Tundras look so aggressive, I couldn't stop talking about them when they first came out. Although I much prefer the Tacoma. Do you get a decent amount of snow where you live? If so, 4x4 is your friend for sure.
