New fj owner in chapel hill, nc greetings

Greetings folks,
just bough a 2008 Fj Cruiser, 6speed manual. A black and white paint.
I have owned it for two months and I have already put 3000 miles on it.
I have to say it is the best purchase I have ever made. I took it to some trails in Winston-Salem, Uwharrie, and taken it all across the Outer Banks. I have to say what a comfortable and sturdy car it is. I am new to this forum and I visit it everyday, getting new ideas and looking at other folks mods on their FJ's.

I feel like I’ve been rode hard and hung up wet
Swallowed by a mule and crapped off a cliff
I drank enough whiskey to fill up a lake
Woke up this morning with a big ass headache.....Justin Moore

Go ahead, skin it! Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens...

I'll ride in on a sunny day, Sing you a song, steal your heart away Like a cowboy Hang my hat like I'm here for awhile Kick off my boots and drive you wild Like a cowboy Well baby you know I can't stay long You wake up, I'll be gone Until then I'll hold on Like a cowboy.

Re: New fj owner in chapel hill, nc greetings

Great choice and welcome!
Aside from all the upgrades and ridiculous variety of things you can blow your wad on! My 2 cents? Get all the fluids done. Toyotas last 4ever and are super reliable IF you do your maintenance.
Diff fluids, Trans fluid, Tcase fluid, Brake and Power Steering, Coolant and Engine Oil, grease the driveshaft. Mine was neglected and after catching up on the maintenance the difference has been noticeable once all this was done.

The guys on this forum have been awesome in posting how to's\discussions and make sure you search youtube for tutorials also.

Mark and Merri's and Last Great Road Trip YOUTUBE CHANNEL is a great start
