I recently moved the family back from FL to IL (TL;DR, family reasons) and sold several motortoys including my 2017 base JKU Sport 6spd which had left me without a vehicle for a few months though not a big deal since I WFH and have a kid car to use when I need to. That said, ordered a new Bronco in July '21 but kept all searches running for interesting vehicles and in Nov '21 a 2007 Voodoo Blue with 6spd Base (150k mi) popped up at a local dealer. I went to see it the next morning where it sat, very dirty and dust-covered, at the back of their lot as it was old+MT and thus not interesting to many it seemed though perfect for me. I took it off their hands, cleaned it up, and it is now going to be my primary until I find a Summer car, but it's a keeper.

FWIW I did not cancel the Bronco order (was built on 12/21, still not shipped) but will not be taking delivery. I have driven both the 2dr and 4dr Broncos, and based on my test drives plus the myriad of issues other MY21 owners have reported and the fit/finish issues I have been able to see in person now it's a hard pass, but YMMV.

Anyway, happy to be here and looking to learn to prepare to mod.

Welcome to the Forum. I would add to what jcl78I said "love the OEM white roof on most colors, but the blue pops with the black roof. Now you just need black mirrors." I would add changing the door handles as well! Great looking ride.

Welcome from Vancouver, BC. Great looking FJ (but then, aren't they all? ;) ). Any off the pavement exploring in your future?
Enjoy your FJ, wherever the journey may take you. Al

Welcome from Northern California! I am sure there are a "few" guys lurking here that would have given their eye teeth to have gotten the opportunity to buy that FJ of yours. Congratulations and have fun!!

Yeah, I couldn't believe it when the search unearthed it practically in my backyard, and then when I went to see it and it was clearly forgotten on the lot (a launch model, in launch color, MT!) it was an immediate buy. Very happy to finally own one.
