Newbie from NJ

Hey, so I'm going to be picking up a 07 FJ tomorrow, if all goes well. I'm extremely new to the off roading scene, looking to learn a bit more about it here on the forums. I just posted this under the 'Is the FJC your first Toyota?' in the 'Toyota FJ Cruiser Polls' section:

oh my I was going to do this under the introduction forum section, but anyways here goes

2000 Honda Accord v6
1997 Honda Del Sol
2004 Subaru WRX
2003 Audi A6
1993 Toyota Supra TT
1997 Mazda RX7 tt
2003 Nissan 350z
2000 Audi s4
1998 Mazda RX7 single turbo setup
2004 Audi A4
2008 Audi S5
2008 Range Rover Sport
2008 Subaru WRX STi
2010 Infiniti FX35
and if I pick up this 07 FJ tomorrow that will be the newest car, and I am super excited.

as most of you guys can see, I've been into tuner cars all my life, this will be the first time I've even looked into a offroading vehicle seriously. I always told people that if I were to sell my s5 it would be for a new wrangler unlimited, but that wasn't for offroading or anything, just mainly looks. I also know NOTHING about off roading... so I feel like a complete newb here, although I am extremely familar with car forums. I'm on nasioc, my350z, evolutionm, vwvortex, audizine, e46fanatics, njtuners, tristatetuners, supraforums, and probably forgetting a few more. Username always raykwok, rayspeed or just ray. Sorry for the long post, but this is basically like my introduction lol.

Looking forward to learning and possibly meeting some of you guys!

Re: Newbie from NJ

Welcome and hope you add an FJ to your list soon

Did own a Honda Del Sol at one point, very cool and fun with the top off.

Re: Newbie from NJ

Welcome to the forum. There is a lot of great information here and there are also a lot of great people. I am sure someone in your area would be willing to take you out and show you the ropes.


My Build:07 Black Cherry 6MT

You haven’t really failed, because you haven’t really tried to succeed. So don’t credit yourself as a failure. You’re worse than that.
