Any off-roaders out there?

I live in southern Nevada 4 wheeling all around the southwest
Recently went to Colorado. Did the infamous Black Bear Pass

Looks amazing. I have a stock lexus GX460. I have been wanting to get into back off roading but not the rock crawling stuff. Just fun drives where I don't necessary need a totally custom lifted off roading rig. Haven't really looked into possible off road trails though.

@RuyLopez Those are great off-road vehicles, Hardcore luxury 😄 I went from a FJ Cruiser to a jeep wrangler, and back to Toyota for a 4-runner. The 4-runner goes everywhere the Jeeps go, and it
is more comfortable.

@DogMan I was looking at 4-runners but I was able to get a better deal on the GX460. Of course you have to suck up the cost of the premium gas!

@RuyLopez I got lucky with mine. It was on Vroom as an SR5 model, and priced as such. But when I looked at the VIN it was a TRD Off Road model, with all the goodies. Only had 16k miles on it. I would have loved your Lexus. The after market for those are as big as the 4 runner. I see a lot of parts are interchangeable.

This is the Ironman stage 2 suspension I put on, 3" lift in front 2" in back.
A little stiff on the road,but plush offroad-
The only bad thing is the springs only come in lime green.
Have done some National Forest and ligging trails near where I live, but really love it out west. Have done a bit in several spots in Colorado, including the Alpine Loop near Ouray/Silverton, White Rim Trail out of Canyonlands NP and some of the areas around Moab, few spots around Sedona and in Death Valley NP.

@Stillwaiting Nice! you have been to the best places. I have been to Moab 10 Times in the last
15 years. It's about 450 miles from my house in Las Vegas. Our Last trip was to Colorado, same place you were. We were going to do the Alpine loop. We took that first hard trail, Mineral Creek I think. It went to the Ghost town. Then we took California Gulch, and another one. It snowed and got muddy and slippery up above tree line. I think I have a pic. Wheeled in Death valley and Sedona too.
Moab and Colorado are my favorite. I have done around different 30 trails in Moab, still tons more.
I think there is around 120. I'll have to check my book. Next time you go to Colorado, do Black Bear Pass, unless you have vertigo. Most people that do it say, Never Again. It's a little scary, especially "The Steps" and "Adios Curve" Once you start that, you can't turn back. Oh! also, NEVER watch roll over videos of Black Bear Pass, 🤣
Really a beautiful place I like nature and mountains
@DogMan wonderful sir! Also it's great that you can take care of them. 🙂

@littlepuppywantanewlife We moved onto a horse property about 26 years ago, since we were accumulating to many dogs. Of course that led to more and more animals. Horses, chickens, rabbits, etc..
@DogMan That's a wonderful thing. I wish I had enough place to accomodate little animals.
Yes I wheel, Nothing a stock jku won't do however.

@Justafantasy Yep, that helps for sure. We don't use MT's much in the southwest. I have Falken Wild peak AT3 on my 4-runner and Jeep. I love them.
@DogMan I bought a buddies new take off Falken mt's when he bought a JL. Made the Jeep nicer overall then the BFG mt
DogMan · M
@Justafantasy That was a good buy. I had the Dura tracks on my Jeep for a while and they chunked out on the rocks in Moab. My Falkens still look brand new.

I always ride my horse off road🙂🙂

@MissTaken Horses are the only Transportation that will go places Jeeps can't go.
In OREGON we have a state length, "Off Road Highway"
