Lonestar Toyota Jamboree 2017 Trip Report

Another Jambo in the books and another year where my skin is stained oompa loompa orange from all the dust, but wouldnt have had it any other way. Weather was unseasonably cool for May in TX and it was awesome. The Squirrel performed great and kicked ass on every trail. No major carnage from the group other than one sheared tie-rod end on Daniels toyota. Never seen one sheer off before. I made a couple small character dents on the sheet metal, but other than that no issues. Ran 190* most of the day even with me beating on it. I guess the new water pump and rerouting the steam lines did the trick.

Pics.
Loaded up Chris's truck and took off early Thursday morning.


Chris's good side


Rock lights worked great

Ill post more once they come in.

Some stuff that needs attention. Tires got into the rear bedsides some. Need to trim out 1/2" or so at the top. Need to make a panel to enclose the center console area. Bitch is hot inside the cab. Also needs some expanded metal in the footwells to keep rocks out of the cab.

Next trip is to K2 on Memorial weekend. Plenty of time for some finishing touches.

Very nice. How you liking the tires? Seems they don't flex much...is it the tire or lack of weight?

They flex great actually. At 8psi they wrap around the rocks. They are breaking in nicely feathering the tops of the tread. They are only going to get better.

Went to the best rock crawling park TX (Katemcy Rocks) has to offer and had a blast. The truck did great and went everywhere i pointed it. I love the uptravel i have in comparison to the last rig. night and day difference in how it handles the technical rocks. Put a decent dent in the drivers door and caved in the upper portion of the cab on the passenger side on a trail called Squeezed (should have known it was going to get me). Other than that, no carnage from our group.

Some pics. Didnt take that many.
Swung by Stinkbeans house and picked up his son's crawler. Little guy is a very skilled wheeler already at age 4. His buggy fit perfectly across the front.






Brian's 4Runner


Unicorned




Didnt even unload it from the trailer as im headed to Hot Springs, AR for some Superlift ORV fun in the rain at the Razorback Ramble. Going to be fun.

I think its the best rock crawling on the planet. Its all pink granite formations with some impossible climbs. Very technical and very grippy.
