Next Meeting: 12:00 - 1:00pm, Saturday, January 14

Same location.

At the inaugural meeting in November a variety of topics were brought up for discussion. Suggestions for club activities included arranging a winter driving course for 4x4 and AWD vehicle owners, putting together an off-road trail run for early Spring, work trade and help installing mods.

In January we will follow up and also discuss driveline maintenance.

Hope to see you there.

Next Meeting: 12:00 - 1:00pm, Saturday, February 11

Same location.

We had a good turn-out for the January meeting.

Brian B., Rich C., and Justin M. were there representing their company, Undercover Hidden Winch Mounting Systems.

Brian brought along his Tacoma and 2011 Brick and Rich brought his Black 07.

All three vehicles were equipped with the hidden winch mounting system.

The system seems wonderfully simple and robust.

The appearance, or rather the distinct lack of any appearance, of the winch is remarkable.

If you're looking to mount a winch, but added weight and maintenance of the stock appearance are important, consider going with the Hidden Winch Mounting System.

Call Brian, Justin or Rich over at http://undercoverhwms.com/wp/ I'm sure they would enjoy the opportunity to be of service to you.

Hope to see you at the February meet and greet.

Cheers, Dave

I sat alone for awhile and then split.

Doesn't seem to be much interest here in Omaha. Lack of places to wheel? Whatever the reason I've better things to do with my Saturdays.

If you decide to do a mod and need a hand give me a shout. I'm handy with a wrench and not afraid to get a little grease on me.

That sucks, not cool when your trying to put sh*t together and no one shows up. Funny thing was there were two FJ's in the Target lot but none @ village inn??
I just bought my 07 in October and have been dying to beat on it a little. So I've been doing some digging and have come up with a couple of places that might be fun to check out.
Timber Ridge Ranch Castana Iowa
Off Road Ranch ATV & Motocross Course in Norfolk, NE

Granted this is no rock crawling or colorado type stuff but that's what we get for living on the flats!

Here's what I was thinking. If we could get a few of us together maybe we could talk the Timber ridge people into letting us come out for a day or camp out for the weekend and do some off roading. An Omaha FJ forum outing or something?
Maybe we could drum up some interest, get a few names and see if it's even possible?

Just installed the BAJA basket tonight, have the OEM (used) Brush guard w/lights and an FJammer on the way!
Just getting the harder to get stuff first then work on the other crap as I can afford it.

Good luck with with Timberidge. They wont even let us guys in the district 22 Iowa enduroriders have any more hare scrambles or enduros there anymore. I remember about 17 years ago i got to take a jeep of mine out there for trail run with this offroad club from Minnesota, but that was quite some time ago. & i beleive the old man has died & now his kids took it over. They are not as lenient. You pretty much have to be a member to go out there. But hey, give it a try, there are some good trails in there. The worst they can say is no.

Well this next month or so is going to be pretty tough for me to get away as my weekends will be pretty busy, after that I might be able to come up with something.

Anyone from Omaha (or these parts) thinking about heading out to the 2012 FJ summit? Not sure but I have it listed as the deadline to sign up for it is at the end of this month. Anyway, thought I'd throw it out there and see if there was any interest, maybe caravan out there if there were any takers. If you are not familiar with it check it out, looks like it might be a pretty good time.

I was considering it, but it looks like everything is pretty much booked up & there are just way too many people there. So my plan is to wait till toward the end of August & i am planning on going out there with a couple of friends. Although i might take my tacoma instead of the Fj. You are more then welcome to come along. I have wheeled alot in colorodo over the years but that part of colorodo i havent wheeled @ yet, the Telluride/Ouray area, The summit thing would be cool but it seems way to crowded. Ive done alot of those big organized trail runs in the past, Easter jeep safari, jeep jambories, etc, they are fun dont get me wrong, but trails take alot longer with that many vehicles, & they have to stay on schedule so you sometimes miss things you would like to do or see. Let me know.

Zombie, did you say FJAMMER?!?!?!?!? Hopefully you are upgrading from the single to 6 disc setup only.

I am excited as the FJ got to do some off roading late February. We went in on some camping land near Two Rivers and it is definitely FJ worthy. Going to camp right on the river and I finally get to use the FJ for what it was meant for; carrying globs of needed/unneeded items to a remote location (AKA 20 mins from home).
