New guy here... just wonderin' what the crowd's like in these parts.

I've wanted an FJ since they came out, and finally I got one last week!

'07 VooDoo Blue with 3" ToyTec lift, 285 Dick Cepek Mountaincats on alum wheels, Road Armor front bumper with PIAA 4's on the corners and Daylighters on grill guard.

It's a dream to drive, and and better dream off road! Just like all my other toys, I thought I'd better find a good place to hang with like minded peeps.

Are there any "Must do's" I can't live without? Fire away, I'm all ears!

Grats! Welcome to the forum :). You need skids and rails. The rest can wait. :) Actually you need recovery gears and learn to use them too.

The folks on this forum are the best. It is relatively flame-free and the outstanding mods make sure that people keep things civil. As I'm sure that you are finding out, there's lots of great information about FJC performance, mods, maintenance, problems (like any vehicle - there's a few common ones), and offroading - there's even quite a bit of off-topics discussion...

So, howdy, congrats, and welcome to the forum! :wave: :cheers:

Holy crap Batboy! (Can ya say 'crap' here?) 2 pages of 'Welcome Aboards". I'm gonna like it here. I'm on a few other forums- Snowest, Snowmobilefanatics and Dieselstop.com, and I've never had so many peeps in the welcome wagon! Way to make a guy feel like he's in the right place!

Thanks for the advice on skids and sliders. I have sliders already, not sure what brand they are, as they were on it when I got it. It looks as though I may be missing a skid behind the front diff though....

Basic recovery gear... Got it--ex tow truck driver/vehicle recovery guy and spent some time on the *******-drunken bonfire-lakebed mud-bog circuit. Empty hole in the bumper where the winch is supposed to be is not good though. I'm getting one of those later this summer. Any reccommendations???

What's the consensus on the A-TRAC? Seems to me you wouldn't need it with a locker. Is it supposed to make all that racket, or am I too old school by assuming if something sounds like it's breaking, it probably is?

ATRAC rocks! You can hack the computer to run both the locker and ATRAC at the same time, then it really rocks!


The sound of ATRAC never get's old.. scares the crap out of me every time i hear it kick in.. But it works!:lol:
