Gotta start somewhere.....

I bought a new FJC in March and attended to Great Smoky Mtn trailride in Tellico last month. Even though I have been messing around with 4X4s since 1960, this was an eye-opener seeing what can be done in the Tellico rock gardens. Actually I was surprised at how capable my FJ was at "it's a rock... get over it!". Having good spotters from the STLCA helped emensly. I have added ARB bull bar, sliders and 3" lift kit, lights, 33" BFG A/Ts and Warn 9000# winch (still a virgin). After my experience in Tellico's rocks I plan to add better skid plates and other drive train protection.

My FJ is sole daily driver so I can't get too carried away with mods, like 6" lifts and 35" tires. Also it is my tow vehicle for a 17 ft travel trailer that is my full time home. I have been on an extended road trip ever since retiring in January 2004. The past 3 years I have been exploring the west, Alaska and Baja in a Sportsmobile 4X4 camper van which re-kindled my interest in off-roading. I decided on something smaller to fit the mountain trails better, and an FJ was the choice.

Incidently I still have the van and an anxious to sell it and it can be viewed at sportsmobileownersforum/classifieds/2004 SMB for sale.

I hope to hit the road again soon and plan to hit as many TLCA events as possible during the next few months.
