    what does the link look like? it needs to end in .jpg or something of the like, IE it has to be a link to the picture itself, normally if you right click the picture, depending on your browser you will eather have a copy image location option, or if you click on properties it will display the link to the picture, then you just wrap it in these;

    As for the photos I was using the "http" option from photo bucket without success even after eliminating extras. I then used the "direct" option and things worked out.

    Yes you are correct about the Baja. The beach shots are on the sea of Cortez side, the "Playa el Coyote" I believe, close to Santispac. The other photo was taken in a truly fantastic spot called Catavina. Huge boulders entwined with roads to explore, at any moment we thought John Wayne was going to come around on a horse.

    Default FJ handling with Trailer

    Well I would have to say "OK". The trailer is at the weight limit for sure and it shows in head winds and on hills for sure.
    The 4 liter V6 has decent power, we have the 6 speed transmission with the off/road package and this has served us very well.
    As for rough roads with the trailer, we have the trailer kitted so it can handle some roads with clearance issues and larger tires for soft stuff. But the reality is the trailer itself is not built for it. Everything ends up all over the place inside, the fridge can't handle dust so we had to replace it, the vibrations kills everything inside as well as well as the mechanical components like the furnace.
    This is what we use now for the rough stuff, plus it pulls a lot better.
