Loved the report, thanks. Is your truck 4x4? If so, I own the *other* 4x4 access cab.


Yes, tell us more about the Toyota you used, jamiec...:?::light::coolup:

Toyota Tacoma SR5 Access. V6, 4x4. 2019. Pretty much stock but I added the Leer cap and racks and built a sleeping platform in the bed.

I only needed the 4WD a couple of times in Baja but it was good to have when I needed it.

Great... If this is your first 4x4, know that lowering the air pressure off road and especially in deep sand will prevent you from getting stuck. On dirt roads it improves the ride and reduces tire punctures from sharp stones. 15-20 psi is the happy area usually. If needed, like really soft sand, you can go down to 10 psi or even 8. Just refill the tires when you are out. A fast tire pump (and tire repair plug kit) is a must have in your Baja truck. I have an MV-50 pump... Clips directly onto the battery terminals. 2-3 minutes per tire to refill.
Again, welcome to Baja Nomad!

Thanks, David, good info. Should have aired down on the Hwy 5 on our way back. Tons of sharp rocks and huge bumps, all before the recent repairs. We got lucky that we didn't have any problems. A compressor is on my list for the next Baja trip.

No prob Bajasammy, looking forward to the next one
