Location: 128 Miles Outside Dallas, TX

Terrain: Forest

Difficulty: Easy-Difficult

Barnwell Mountain Recreation Area is an exciting motorized off-road park located three hours outside the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The well-maintained park sprawls over 1,850 acres, includes a maintained trail system, various camping options, and more.

Joining us this month to tell us about their accident, @taco_escapade.

Accident Details:

A driver ran a stop sign and t-boned us. This caused the truck to roll twice, destroying everything attached to the truck and totaling it. Luckily we were okay and thankfully we didn't have our dog Jax with us at the time. The other car's initial impact was directly to the Rock Sliders. Despite the brute impact, I was able to remove the sliders from my totaled truck and bolt them right on to my new truck, which was very surprising!

Favorite trips?

Check out @taco_escapade on Instagram. It was a couple-week trip following the Appalachians north from Florida to New Hampshire. Either Shenandoah National Park or Hot Springs, NC were my favorite spots of the trip. After being home for not even two days...

Favorite Cali Raised LED Product:

I honestly really use the 0 Degree Bolt on Rock Sliders, the Hidden Lower Light Bar and Ditch Lights
very frequently. The sliders offer a nice protection so you don't have to worry too much about your rocker panels. They also make great steps for getting stuff on or off the roof and just getting in and out of the truck. Another benefit is in parking lots, they prevent door dings from other people's doors. The ditch lights and light bar are obviously very effective in the dark to help you pick your line while off-roading or to find that perfect camp spot.

Until next time! At Cali Raised LED, we not only want to encourage riders to try something new, (with all the proper precautions of course!) but also to not be too shy when it comes to checking out trails that they may not have thought possible. It's in our very slogan, "Rise Up and Seek Adventure." We really mean it.

Thank you to @teksou for sharing your story with us.

If you haven't figured it out yet, we've been featuring a trail or national park or other must see location each month of the year, and sometimes we are lucky enough to find other off-roaders who have been there. They are kind enough to share their experience and their expertise. Want to be featured? Have a trail you think we should feature? Submit your photos and story to to be considered!

  • I would be so pissed! Thankfully everyone’s okay, and you could reuse the sliders. I ordered the exact pair for my white Tacoma last week. Can’t wait!
