...and you'll be really surprised at the results.

If you don't want to watch an 8 minute video.

Racetrack is Racetrack Playa in Death Valley National Park. I've done this drive in a 2016 Toyota RAV4 LE 2WD, so I've been on "worse." For reference I was completely roasted by an Asian dude in a Toyota Corolla that passed me up, and I never saw again heading toward the exit, so he either died in the desert off-road or went on his merry way.

The results?

The Tacoma destroyed its rear suspension on the road to Racetrack - completely destroyed - and yes TRD option package.

The Titan XD with off-road package also blew a rear shock on Racetrack, and lost parts of the tailgate.

The Ridgeline, running faster than the other two, did just fine.
