Be careful with this forum. I've discovered a serious flaw here. Lots of time wasted wading through all kinds of awesome info, just the wrong stuff at the wrong time...

Example:

I grab my cup of coffee this morning and start reading through the lift threads, get distracted by the personalized plates thread, and spent the rest of the morning reading about the RTT's (especially the stuff from Corey).

My Point? I'm out of time, have to go to work. I still haven't finished reading about lifts.

Damn, I need more time.

Since your a newbie...you must learn to stay focused and stay on subject...If not you may get addicted, spending way to much time surfing the thousands of threads way into the night. Pretty soon it's work then forum and on and on...Mod maddness leads to many other problems like...maxed credit cards and other forms of depridation :lol:

Multi tasking is important. It's not being sidetracked if you learned or laughed at something.

I guess I should be afraid then because I sit here on break and start all over again ON MY PHONE.

I can hear my wife now @ 2 am: "get off your dam phone and go to sleep"

Lifts, tires, shocks, racks, ipad integration.......list goes on and on. Just wish I had the cash to do half the stuff I read.

When mods aren't enough, you book a 4 night stay in Ouray and plan to drive 17 hours just to hang out with others suffering the same disease.

Another Newbie here. Just got my (1st) FJ on 12/28.
Spent most of the last two days on this site.
I think the first minute I got home, I spent over $500 on my 1st mods.
Making a huge list.....Wife's gonna be pissed!

Damm this site :bigthumb:

They (wives) learn real quick that things can get a bit pricey....

Before I even bought mine I had a Warn M9000 winch installed.

I said to her I'm gonna put a winch in and she said no problem.

A few weeks later she found out how much I spent and wised up :lol:
Too late!

She always asks what things cost now :mecry:

This thread gives me a good laugh. I've already learned my lesson on my '04 Jeep GC build a few years back. It started with the K&N FIPK, then lift/tires/shocks, then complete exhaust, then I went with ARB/winch, rock rails, skids, hitch, etc. I remember when I got the ARB and winch...my wife asked where I got it...and I told here that my contractor neighbor and I built it in his garage. lol...he's got an awesome set of tools. She still doesn't know what it cost, but I can tell you that I will not be as aggressive with the new FJ...I will be smarter and more selective. Not to mention I have too many hobbies. Best of luck to all of the other newbs.
