    I drive a 1974 FJ40, a 1996 LX 450, and a 2006 Prius.

    My first offroading event was the GSMTR 1996 and I have been hooked ever since!

    Details on the 40 in the build thread in my signature.

    Excellent idea Greg. Great way for people to put everyone's name to a rig and an IH8MUD handle!

    Jim Lieb, I live in Erie, PA and drive a '82 FJ40, a '87 VW Westfalia and a '11 VW Tiguan. I must confess I have done very little hard core off-roading and am hundreds of miles to the west of you guys. Would like to come out some time and ride with somebody if there was room. Enjoy working on my vehicles even though I am a novice.

Right now I drive a 76 FJ40 and an 84 FJ60 but the stable changes frequently. been dialing in the 76 40 for six years now though so i guess it's a keeper. Miss my 55 though! working on a 77 J40 project, too and also another 77 for my nephew Zach.

    Hi. I'm Eric. I drive a 76 iron pig. Aka the Goat pig. I also have a 86 fj60 and a 75 fj40. I'm in Klingerstown PA. In between raush creek and the AOAA. I started wheeling in the mid 90s and I think my first run was at the catamount cruiser challenge. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1430611103.639258.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1430614883.496518.jpg

    I'm JT from Marysville, Pa and we have a few Toyota's in the family. I daily drive an 05 4Runner, my wife daily drives an 07 Sienna.
    This was a fun night, but both in one picture.
    [​IMG]
    My trail rig is an 88 4Runner.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    We also have an 89 Pickup that we use as a spare when needed.
    [​IMG]
    As for FJ40's we have 2, a 70 and a 71. Both have had some work done to them.
    Here is the 70
    [​IMG]

    Here is the 71

    Hoping to get out soon, however I need to finish the swap on the 71 FJ and then bring the 88 4Runner in to 3 link the front and 4 link the back, just need to find the time as all of the parts are here and ready to install. Time is tight this summer as we are having an inground pool, patio and pergola installed, so that will be taking up a bonch of spare time.

    Great thread! This will be super helpful when we go out to Rausch Creek and I forget all your names I can come back on here and look them up :)

    My name is Ben, we live in York and have a 100-series family cruiser for the wife, 2 kids (and 1 on the way!) and our dog. We've had it for about 2 years now, took a big trip last spring break to tour the northeast and then a 2.5 week trip to Colorado, Ouray and south Dakota. Tons of fun!

    My step-son and me somewhere in CO last summer:
    IMG_3001.JPG

    Here's one in VT with @Pacer before his rig got a shiny new paintjob, this was at the VORW last October:
    IMG_3276.JPG

    Earlier this year I bought a BJ74 as a solo trip toy, purchased in British Columbia, took a few weeks driving it back across the US and @Crusha met up with me and we went through OR, ID, UT and then finally home. It's a fun little truck and I'll enjoy finishing the build over the summer months.

    Currently have a 07 FJC and the Mrs drives an RX350. Previous Toyotas 84' & 86' 4Runners, 87 pickup. I've been wheeling and running 4wheelers, motocross bikes for as long as I could drive.

    Hello All, Don here.. Owned my first 40 back in 76, the EX wife crashed it, divorce, new family, carreer, all got in the way for two decades. Bought a TJ, (heaven forbid) in 97, then a rubicon in 04. After 10 years of trying to make the rubicon cruiser like, (impossible) I finally got the jeep thing, bought our 96 LX450 in the fall of 2013 and sold the jeep. As we enjoy overlanding, (over used word and a bit pretentious, I know, but it best describes what we do) and back country camping and hiking, the Jeep platform basically sucked.. on the way home from Moab in 2010 I said to my wife, we gotta get a Lancruiser for this, this is ridiculous !! Now we are back in the saddle and there's no turning back.
    Here is a link to a vid we made of our last wheelin trip at Mt Rainier

    Awesome Don!

    Looks like you and that Cruiser get around!

    There is a thread further down the list about heading to Bald Eagle.

    In what part of PA are you located?

    The trip out to the cascades is only the beginning. Currently planning a camping trip to Poe Paddy June 28th, then a trip to Big Bend in November, come home for a breather, then leave out for a SW tour in February. Currently I'm working on a frame up rebuild of our trailer. We are located in Wernersville.... Did I mention how stoked I am to be a part of Keystone Cruisers? I'm looking forward to meeting up with you all in the future ...
