New FJ Owner

I just wanted to say howdy. I just got my 08 FJ and took her out last weekend to get dirty at Colorado Bend Stat Park. Not as many dirt roads here in CenTx as AZ, but I will have to adapt. I have to say after a quarter of a century of the old H shifting pattern, the new 6 speed is taking a little bit of re-education, Reverse is where? I have enjoyed reading up on all the mods. Thanks in advance for all the help.

Re: New FJ Owner

I went with a 5 spd auto on my '08 when all my life I have had a manual. Talk about getting use to something different. Welcome to the forum.

Re: New FJ Owner

Welcome!

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.
