New to forum FJ owner
Hi all - I've had my FJ for about 6 months now, but I ride a bike most of the summer so it's just time for my first o/c. I'm loving the truck - or the "duck" as the kids named it. Yeah, it's yellow. Fully loaded and then I bought the steel wheels from Toyota for winter use. Got some serious Bridgestone off road tires for those. Needless to say I'm not getting stuck anywhere.
I will be wanting to put a winch on the duck for self rescue, so I'll be checking the site for suggestions. I've got some pics I'll have to upload, but nothing really hairy so far.
I love the fact that a) this is a real truck, not some girly SUV, b) that I can wash out the interior after the scouts are done with it and c) the dang thing is so surprisingly quiet and highway friendly, especially for a truck. My sister-in-laws Cherokee, in contrast, is misery at highway speeds.
So I'm really liking the duck. As far as color goes, I stopped by the dealership to get an oil filter (thanks for the tip on the check valve) and saw six of the brick red FJs in the lot. One silver, one black. Guess what the new popular color is predicted to be? They did look good though. Seems you can also get the Bilstein o/r suspension and some other goodies in a new "o/r" package.
Keep the shiny side up!
