Hey from KC

Always thought if I wanted to go bigger I'd get an FJ. Last weekend I traded in my Infinity G37X for a 2011 FJ. Gotta say I was asking myself if I did the right thing; the next day it started to snow then Facebook reminded me that 3 years before - on that day - I hit 2 whitetails in that G37x doing 80 mph. So here I am in FJ land. I've got plenty of mud to keep me busy since I live in the boonies. First thing on the list is a bumper big enough to take on the biggest bucks, (digging the Ex-1 WyoOtto). Then I'm going to look at some lights, I miss the HIDs in that Infinity.

So hey all!

Re: Hey from KC

Welcome! Your FJ isn't quite as nimble I'm sure, but it'll get you where you want to go! If you're interested in off-roading, there's a couple of parks in the area that are good. Also, I'm currently the second owner of a demello bumper that has claimed the life of at least one deer at speed, so they're definitely worth considering as well.

Welcome from New Mexico. You can always retrofit HIDs in your FJ. Or spend it on a lift, or bumpers, or...

Re: Hey from KC

Welcome from a little ways west! There is a decent group of Toyotas in the KC area that get together occasionally for wheeling trips. They have a facebook page but I usually try to post here when I do something:
