Whats going on guys?

For my first post on the FJ forums I decided to introduce myself and post up some pics of my FJ.

Its a pre-owned 2008 in Quicksand, and it came with convenience package #2 (i believe).

Anyways, my name is Ray, and as the title states, I'm from Las Vegas. I've been lurking these forums for a while and I finally decided to sign up and post.

The FJ's caught my eye in 2007, and finally, about 4 years later, I was able to afford my very own.

First post with pics - nice. There are quite a few people on here from Vegas. The FJ is a great vehicle for the desert. It has kick-a$$ A/C.

Whats up guys?!!!!??

First off, I wanna say thanks for all the warm welcomes!

I've been lurking this message board for quite some time now and I must say, it is bad ****ing ass!!!

All you dudes seem really cool and friendly, and i'm really excited to start becoming part of this online community.

real quick: I'm definitely a n00b when it comes to FJ's, with this being my very first one, so i'm really glad i found this site.

hell yeah! and thanks btw!

sadly, i've already used the A/C on a trip to L.A. just a few days ago.. i was trying to not turn it on until it got really hot in vegas.

but the A/C is pretty bad ass.

Welcome aboard!
thanks Archy!

PM sent! but anyways, I'll be checking out that other site soon.

I definitely cant wait to take my FJ off roading.

heres a noob question: my FJ is completely stock, so can it handle something like the Angel Peak run?

Welcome to the party...
Thanks Raggler

Ya, it was probably doable stock w/spotter but as it turned out it wasnt very paint friendly. Haha.
Theres some runs coming up that are probably a lil more appropriate for a new, stock rig. Still should be hella fun and def give you a taste of what they're capable of.

Very nice FJ, Ray, it looks brand new. I'm also a new FJ owner and didn't know the Quicksand color was available in 2008.

Your brush guard and rock sliders look good; who made them?:wave:

thanks brutha!

it looks very very brand new..the story behind it is this: around 2007-2008, a soldier bought it but got deployed to iraq not long after. his mom decided to keep it for him.

she got the rock sliders and steps installed b/c she was an older woman and had trouble getting into the FJ (cuz its a BEAST!).. anyways, she got fed up with it and traded it in for a corolla on a thursday... we went and got it a few days later on saturday.

needless to say, it wasnt driven very much.. it only had approx. 1100 miles in it when we picked it up.

the rock rails...idk who the real manufacturer is, and the brush guard "might" be OEM...but the dealership wasnt too sure either.
