Driving from the Panhandle of Florida down to Tampa back in early 06, I spotted an FJ. My first thought was WTF is that? Got closer and checked it out up close. I knew then I had to have one. I joined this list to read all I could before buying. Although I have not posted much, I have been here lurking in the shadows, till now. Thanks to you all for the info I got to help me along the way. Here it is, I call her YO.

Very Sweet rig!! Can't wait to see it in person this coming weekend. I really like the powder coated OEM wheels. Yellow and black just looks plain awesome.
They do look sweet. Panhandle Powdercoat in Pensacola did em, charged me $90 a wheel, then gave me a 10% disc. for being a Vet. Totally sweeeet.

See ya Saturday, Im stoked to try out what I spent all my $$$ on, break in the OME heavy's a bit then I'll get an alignment...:cheers:

Was that you driving the Eseries van through Louisiana towing the sun fusion?

I was in the modded 100 series that waved. Think i might have seen you passing through before. Going wheeling in Texas?

AND, if you saw that combo before it must have been last year about the same time frame. On my way to Cruise Moab last year I broke down in Henderson on I-10. Hung out for a week on the Bayou waiting for the van to be fixed, had me an EPIC time. Luv me some Cajun folk...
