    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Matt and am from Greensboro, NC. Jerry (mtbcoach) told me about this club and hopefully I can join soon.

    Here's my rig as it stands (sorry for the bad quality):

    Thursday night I think we're going to swap the front suspension out for OME heavies, wire up the fogs in the bumper, and probably add some Hella 500F's to the bumper.

    Glad you found us Matt. Looks great with the new bumper, I'm sure the OME heavies will take up the weight of the bumper just fine...

    Welcome Matt, and that's a beautiful FJC you have! I hope you can make it to some club events.

    I hope they can cause I sure couldn't... the install sucked. It's going to be interesting to try to get a winch on it down the road :lol:

    As for the 21st I wish I could make it but I already have plans to be in SC that day. Hopefully I can make the next one.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone

    Yeah... I don't cruise around that area much except late at night (too much traffic for me).... we like to eat at that wings place off new garden

    I've never seen the Blue FJ... I'll have to keep an eye out of them for sure. There's another black FJ around Guilford college with an ARB roof rack and lights. His name is Mark and I hang out with pretty frequently though. We need to get together sometime for sure. Any pics of your rig in case I see you around?

    Haha I think I know where you live... I think I saw that land cruiser in a driveway off Eastchester a couple weeks ago near high point. That you?
