OK, so it was only an inflatable. :shock: But, there was no ramp! :?

Taken at Lone Rock Beach over the weekend. You can see the appropriately named rock pinnacle island behind the RZR in one of the picks. Insane T-Storm tore through right at dusk, but by the afternoon it was clear and 100 deg as you can see.

I am saving my quality sunrise storm shots of the truck until XJRGuy gives me a nice spot to put them. Taken off my phone, they were of amazing quality. I may send them in to the maker of my Brush Guard. They request customer shots, and if used in advertising, they send you a cool flashlight or something. Neat way for them to save thousands in advertising shots, to reward you with a $5 LED compact flashlight. :lol: But, I am an attention whore, and the truck looks sweet, so I would be glad to see my truck on an national ad campaign.

Did some nice 'wheeling, and finally got to spend some time in the truck playing with the various features and comparing results to the many settings in different terrain. Nice thing about Lone Rock, other than it being just a few miles from the house, is that it offers a smallish Off Highway Vehicle Area, that isn't hammered and has some really different conditions all in one handy area. Lake front (no salt water like at Pismo, so better on avoiding rust) hard pack sand to drift sand hills, neat slick rock formations that you can actually crawl all over like a skate park, plus some loose dirt/rock hills and trails.

I can say that simply airing down a little (30fr / 20rr) is all you need to get this vehicle ANYWHERE. It can be a bit intimidating at first, with limited vision and it being a heavy, full sized truck. Especially after spending most my technical trail time in the Samurai - completely opposite platform being tiny, light and low on power. Sway bar disconnect and both front and rear Lockers are amazing. These BFG A/T's do very well also and seem very cut and puncture resistant despite being quiet and capable of hauling heavy loads on the highway, and being soft enough to stick nicely when pushing hard through Turn 8 up on the Big Track at WIllow Springs! :twisted:

Enough for now. I'll post some action shots later, if this thread happens to see any attention.
