    Haven't posted up in these parts...figured I'd say hello! I'm in Lilburn and have seen a couple 80's in town recently.
    My brother and I are planning on hitting Earls Ford, hop onto the GA Traverse Trail, and then on to Tray Mtn tomorrow. Anyone driven that route before?

    My brother has a stock KJ (I know, heresy. I'm working on converting him)... I thought that'd be a good trail to do with a stock liberty in tow. :rolleyes:

    Welcome to the community! The meetings are at the Fuddruckers on North Point Pkwy. I'm going to try to make it out with my 76 FJ40 and hope to see you there.

    Looking at maybe picking up a 2005 Tacoma. It is a 4.0L, 4wd, auto, double cab with 205,000mi. The mileage worries me a little but I think the price may be right. It sounds like the price is going to be $5-6k which seems good compared to what’s for sale on the web.

    Anybody have any personal knowledge of these trucks, common issues, etc? It seems this motor has had good long term reliability.

    No on the HG which after some brief reading may be a turn off. Saw the rust issues as well which is easier to diagnose.

    Playing with the idea of getting a rear swing out bumper for my 80 80 Series Factory Bumper Swing Out DIY Kits but have zero welding experience, any suggested/preferred shop's that wont break the bank? Would prefer it be close to lawrenceville.

    I'm sick to death of those Chevy commercials, thought this was funny.
