Watch out for that Victor guy... And that Ian guy too. Both of them are a bit off if you know what I mean...

Just messing around, I can vouch for both as great guys who know the laws of the land. Funny how our little So Cal group is branching out.

-Matt

Oh ya,

About myself.

Matt Collins, 28yrs old. Rig in sig, but quick break down, 94FZJ80 locked all around, 37's, 5.29's, linex'd interior, Co2, Armor, and not afraid to drive it like it's supposed to be driven.

One run with Trail Crew, Miller night run...

Ron, funnily enough, IIRC, all three of these prospects were camped just a couple hundred feet away from the TrailCrew camp at Surf N Turf. :)

forrest gump-er

I must be stupid as I just found this thread :doh:

particulars about me:
Mike Robson, just turned 40, 1997 80-series on 37's, in CA have only run Miller, Rohwer, JB and most of the other stuff up in BigBear, Truckhaven, some stuff out in the Mojave, stuff in Death Valley, and that's about it.

Still trying to actually hook up with the Trail Crew but don't have a lot of spare time. But I've met and wheeled with Ian, Sam and Matt - hope that doesn't say the wrong thing about me :hillbilly

Greetings. My Jame is Jason Hower, age 33. My wife drives my 96 FZJ80 w/factory lockers, which has been christened "Moby Dick" by my 2 year-old. It was purchased this summer in response to last year's winter here in the San Berdu mountains (figures - no real snow yet THIS year). I've always wanted one of these, and I think I've sold my wife on the idea of building an expedition rig.

Before I go spending our child's college fund on cruiser goodies, we need to learn how to use it as is.

Moby will be wearing new Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armors in 305/70/16 next week, and I look forawrd to trying them out next time we get a chance (hopefully on a future Trail Crew outing!).

Hello!

My name is Stefan I have a 94 Land Cruiser which is stock. I have not been offroad since High School (I am 43) when I had a 40 with a 351 and all the goodies. We went to what we called the pit which is now a golf course south of Mulholland and between coldwater & Benedict Canyons above Beverly Hills. Thanks.

Fashionably Late with my intro, but do forgive.

I'm Sam/Sammy, run a 1996 FZJ80 no longer stock but the details are currently being worked on in terms of suspension etc. (all required item are covered).

Signed up for the Wednesday Morn. Breakfast Run at the Rubicon in June and am trying to make it out to the June meeting so that I can meet and greet. Hopefully I'll be done with the truck by then, but you all know how that works, wrenching unitl the last minute possible.

If you want some pointers ;) or just want to get acquainted, we're gonna have a club picnic and safety inspection at our regular meeting place on Sat May 20th. It's in a separate thread in this forum.

Maps here:

Hope to see you there.

Hey all,

My name is Mike Seibert. I'm realtively new to the L.A. area (originaly from Colorado) and only came out here because of a job that was waaaaay to good to pass up.

My rig is a 1974 FJ40 with 3 on the floor with a freshly re-rebuilt F engine (whole other story), with a Weber 38/38 carb on it. I repainted it Dune Beige a couple years back and only last month got the last body parts back on (the rear doors). Soon it will also have one of Eshan's famed soft tops.

My 40 still isn't quite ready for any sort of run, but hopefully soon.

Hey everyone, Name is Steve, looks like the oldest to post recently, 50 y/o, 3rd generation S.F.V. Native, screen name is one of a number of alter egos, had always been a Flat Fender Fanatic, converted to an FJ40, factory soft top model, the addiction is much worse, have been hardcore and poser, not sure where I will end up with this one but I am thinking it might be wise to meet a few others with the same insanity, would be interested in attending a meeting, wha da ya think? Steve:cool:
