    Here I am, here I am!! Actually it's an LX but that still counts right?

    Anyway, mine is sitting in the garage, getting ready for a HG replacement.

    When it is back on the road, we will have to hook up for a trail run.

    Later,
    Jack

    You should check out the BBCNN...the local 'Cruiser club.

    Sorry Keller, just sold mine. :flipoff2: There are a few nicely built 80s and 100s around town though in addition to Dan and Jack, plus the 40s and 60s. I saw a cool blue 80 a couple of weeks ago that had the flares removed and the whole lower body Rhino Lined, but I did not get a chance to talk to the guy.

    Got the photos, rig looks great and the family seems to like it. Is that your 100 series in the garage as well?

    Beyond Reno keep an eye on the Nor Cal Wagons guys, they are really active and do trips into the Sierras often.

    It's Sierra...no such thing as Sierras :flipoff2: .






    There is only ONE Sierra Mountain Range.

    Nice ride.

    I was at Reno Toyota on Saturday, picking up some stuff and I saw a lifted 80 on 305's. The plate is NV 4AFRICA and the guy had laid it on it's driver's side. It looked like he was having the driver side rear door window replaced. Some other damage on that side. I have seen that rig around but haven't had a chance to talk to him.

    We are going to have to do a hook up, maybe at one of the BBCN meeting's.

    cool plate. i like it. I have not seen that guy around. i'm running 285/75's on mine...came with it. i'd like to be higher, but gearing is bad enough as it is.

    see you at BBCN maybe.

    Harry - yeah, that is a 100 series...very observant of you. ;) that is affectionately know as "the wife's car"

    I added a safari roof rack and front mounted cb antenna (+cb), which is making it look pretty dang cool.

    I hear you on the gearing. I've got 285's on mine with the stock gearing. And I haven't added any armor to mine yet, so I can't wait for what that will do to the power.

    Maybe we can all meet at the September BBCNN meeting. I should/hope have mine back together by then.

    Thanks,
    Jack

    I/we could probably do that. I happen to know where a few petroglyphs are. Plus I have been on almost every road surrounding Reno.

    It looks like the BBCNN's meeting is set for Tuesday Sept. 12. I won't be able to make it. That's my wedding anniversary. We'll try next month or something. I'm gonna try to get the LX back together this weekend.
