Tacoma new 38k raptor new 90 plus markup in most places
So if this Tacoma guys spend 10 grand on it, it’s good to go.
raptor is one expensive beautiful toy that needs nothing really.
It’s not that ppl don’t wanna spend money on raptor, it’s just not as affordable

I am also considering the LMM duramax swap, now that all the bugs 🐜 are out of the kits available.
I Really enjoy the simplicity of the 6.5 TD but it just doesn’t have the power to move the truck around.

Good old Land Rover and California BEAUTIFUL.
I only use the hilift jack with the tire strap to lift a tire,
It saved me countless times, but I see the danger behind it.
In this picture we were planning to get the burning man playa, by crossing the mountain range, but we got stuck in many...
Playa is absolutely amazing place to go,
if you continue driving far north end of the playa there are over 30 hot springs totally hidden.

I own this truck for 4 years got it brand new, 68.000 miles now, About 80% off road miles.
Reliable? For sure,
But diesel discovery is nothing less, and I am pretty sure it will keep its value...
To put the difficulty of the trail in perspective
1.5 miles takes about 2.5 hours to do,
this stock discovery did without a scratch or issue.
How much more capabilities someone need?
