Hello folks,
Just wanted to say hello. I have an 07 FJ in Voodoo Blue with the 6MT TRD Wheels/tires and nothing else. I am a QC inspector for a sitework construction company so I am off-road in it almost every day! (Yes, I know I have a cool job!) I learned to drive a manual tranny about 25 years ago in an FJ 40 and have been a Toyota fan since then. However, (go ahead and hate me now) I also have a CJ7 I built from a bare frame that I'll reserve for the heavy stuff plus a couple of Dodge 4X4's and a Tahoe too. No brand loyalty insanity here just different tools for different jobs.
Anyways, I hope to learn a bit of tech and perhaps get a deal or two on some parts while I'm here.

Gheers,
regularjay

hey welcome to the club! I'm in silver spring, so if you ever see an asian guy driving a yellow FJ w/ black steelies gimme a honk.

I had two people wave at me on my commute home the other day which was pretty cool. Usually I get no love.

If we hate you here, it's not because of your choice, but because of your full stock of vehicles. It's more like green with envy. ;)

Welcome to the family.

Thanks all for the kind welcome. I keep swearing to myself I'm gonna leave this thing "stock" we'll see what happens. So far I've had no troubles getting to the places I have to go in totally stock form. This will spend the next couple of years as a Daily driver so I don't want to "mod" it into impractibility (been there - done that) Right now its fine, and hey, a consistant 18.8 MPG is not something I'm keen to mess with.

I'm in the same boat....except, mine is not by choice (I'd mod the h3ll out of it if I could afford it), but out of practical, financial responsibility. :)

Ya, with 87 octane, I get about 19 here in the Boulder area. I switched over to 91 (premium), but didn't see much change upward....however, I made that change on the same day that I switched fro the stock, flat tread street tires to the ones I have now. So, it might just be a wash.
