Look for Nala in the next issue of 4wd Toyota owner!

About a year and a half ago Sandabbe sent in a pic to 4wd Toyota owner of Nala just after she got her lift, rock rails and BFG's. She DID explain that Nala is a 2wd, but that she Gets wheeled with the 4wd's and for the most part , she keeps up!(OK in SOME cases OUT DOES!, but she didn't mention THAT!)
Well it seems as if the boy's are short on pic's for the "Your yotas" section, so Nala's IN!
Sandabbe got an Email form 4wd Toyota owner magazine yesterday telling us this! So be on the look out for her!
They didn't say if she was going in the March/April issue OR the May/June issue, but it may be time to update my subscription!

Re: Look for Nala in the next issue of 4wd Toyota owner!

Funny thing is, that I sent them a pic just after getting the tube bumper and winch installed, THAT is NOT the pic they are using! Sand told me they are using THIS one.

MAN! I had to dig WAY back into photobucket for this one!

Re: Look for Nala in the next issue of 4wd Toyota owner!

Your new bumper isn't TTORA approved, so it's natural that they'd want the photo of Nala in her previous life. Nala looks a lot more predatory now that you've worked her up. You wouldn't recognize her before.

My son-in-law (Corona PD) mentioned that he saw a Sun Fusion FJ and described Nala. I told him Nala was exempt from moving citations if he saw a guy driving -- however if a lady was driving -- it was open season. Tell Deb - that should get her out from behind the wheel so you can drive it more often.

There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unaltered, to find the ways that you have changed.

Yes! the "Butt ugly" bumper is frowned upon by the TTORA crowd. That would explain the old pic post in the mag.

Thanks for the exemption with the PD! I'll let Deb know to watch her "P's & Q's" and let me drive more!
