    How's it goin? I live in NW FL, and I have been in the FJ market for a while now, searching not so heavily till lately. Always wanted one, never got off my butt to get one. Dirt bikes are my other passion. I have been looking so much lately, that my wife traded in her car and bought a (GULP) 2007 FJ Cruiser, black, wth black steelies. SIGH...anywho...I figured I'd introduce myself and say hello. I have to sell a couple older Harleys till I can get my FJ 40, until then, I'll be in here, lurking about. Happy wheeling..JL


    By the way, why ya'all call it I HATE mud??? Am I missing something with the TOY world? I used to own a 1985 EFI RE-22 auto with 33s...talk about underpowered...it hated mud BAD ;)

    Welcome


    You came to the right place ( well site at least )



    Don't be ashamed of your FJ cruiser either, I think they look cool and all. Just I wouldn't buy one for it's off road capability. Still neat though.


    Now get that 40 so you can get the sickness also ;)



    :cheers:

    Welcome.
    I suggest before you ask ANY questions here, look in the FAQ section and use the search function to ensure you don't repost. There are some here who love to pounce on newbies who don't do their homework and try to get spoonfed advice.
