Re: Picking it up in 2 hours

Thanks for the warm welcome guys! I took the FJ immediately on a road trip straight from the dealership. Had to meet my wife out of state for Thanksgiving. What better way to test out a new ride than take it on a road trip eh? Lol

The truck is AMAZINGLY smooth. I was really surprised by this. It soaked up bumps in the road like a sponge. I didn't expect that in a vehicle like this. Very pleased with that. It also purred along at 75mph as smooth as silk. Quiet too. Ill try to get some pics tomorrow in the daylight since I arrived after dark. It's got lots of stuff on it ill need you guys to explain to me, I still have a lot of manual reading to do.

It's a 2007 4x4 with lots of aftermarket stuff on it apparently, though none of it appears to be offload stuff. Probably never bee offload in its life. It's got 47k on the clock. Love it so far!!

Congrats and welcome to the FJ world and the forum. I've only had my FJ a few months and have already taken a road trip to north Louisiana, Tennessee and Chicago in a few weeks. The FJ is a great vehicle. You'll love it.

Re: Picking it up in 2 hours

Well I got the pics taken but I just realized there's no way in hell I'm going to post them to photobucket and then resize them on my In-Laws computer. The Internet service here is slow as dirt. I'll get home tomorrow afternoon and will post and edit them then. I can already see I'm going to need to take this thing by a car audio place and have them look at it. There's no manual for the aftermarket electronics and the sub doesn't seem to work either. Other than that this thing is perfect!
