Happy to say that I have just picked up my first FJ. Sad to say it was because I totaled my built Nissan Frontier. At least I have the opportunity to build another rig and something completely new to me. Here’s the pic of my wreck. Glad to say I only broke 4 ribs, bumps and bruises and no one else was hurt!

Wow! That’s really totaled and amazed about the lack of serious injury! You’ll feel (and actually are) so safe in your FJ - welcome and congrats 👍

Welcome from Texas! What did you hit?? A pack of moose?? That you only had 4 broken ribs is stunning. Your guardian angel must be a shivering wreck now.

Thanks for the welcome and well wishes. I was boxed in the slow lane on I-80 in the mountains of Northern California with no shoulder and cars in the fast lane. Came around a curve and there was a big rig stopped in my lane. I wasn’t able to stop so I ended up hitting his rear corner. And I wasn’t even speeding . 😄

Dayam.....that could’ve been so much worse!! Sounds like you threaded the needle, kept your body in the sweet spot between that rig and fast cars in the left lane. Props on some great driving 👍

Wow, quite a story on the Frontier. Good luck with your FJ build, looks like you're starting with a good truck.
