Where you at Houston...

Hey guys I never formally introduced myself so I figured I would say hi. This is a great forum with a lot of great info. I have used a lot of the threads to do work to my FJ. I have a 2010 Fresco Silver FJ that I bought new. I needed an SUV bc cars are worthless on the city streets. I could not be happier with my purchase. I don't think I have ever like a vehicle so much. What made want an FJ you ask? Well one night on patrol I got dispatched to a two car major accident. When I arrived I saw a roller over FJ and someone inside. I pulled the guy from the FJ and asked if he was ok. He said he was fine. Well a car had run the red and clipped the FJ causing it to roll over.

The wrecker came and flipped the FJ over. I kid you not this guy could have jumped back in his vehicle and drove it home. He even asked me if he could drive it home lol but I advised him not to. From that point on I was sold. One tough vehicle. I appreciate all the great info and reviews on this forum. Thanks for your help.

Running 285/70/17 nitto terra grapplers with 7089 pro comps. Front leveled with Toytec 883 springs which are about to be changed out. Going to put a full 3in lift. 22in xmitter lightbar mounted to front bumper. TT black grille bezel and completely blacked out wings and valences (painted myself). M-PAC rac in the rear. Auto 4 wheel drive. Anyone wanna help me install my 3in lift when I get it in ? Have a great day guys

Re: Where you at Houston...

Welcome Rick...we'll have to meet up at some point over the next couple weeks. I've got your scuba kit all ready to go.

If you are looking for a front suspension upgrade I'm selling my Camburg UCA's and Icon front suspension....going with a TC LT setup, so I no longer have a use for it.

Re: Where you at Houston...

Next couple weeks are a bit hectic with travel and family in town, but the 2 or 3 weeks prior to OX should work.

Rick I'll shoot you a PM to see when we can meet up.
