BTW- is there anyone else here from the Atlanta area? It seems everyone is from the west coast, which really makes life difficult when you want to do some buying/trading.
I'm guessing from the few posts I've read here I'll be "looked down upon", but I thought I'd post and say hello anyway. I'm one of those people who bought my FJ (1 week old today!) simply on looks and because I'm a Toyota whore. This is the third Toyota in a row I've purchased, in fact my wife is still driving her 2006 RAV4.
I picked up the Voodoo blue 4X2 with nearly no upgrades other than the convenience package and rear diff lock, but I plan on adding the roof rack and alloy wheels (to start, I'm sure more will come later).
I don't plan on going off-road, in fact the gas mileage will probably cause me to survive on ramen noodles and spam since I have a daily 75 mile commute, but I just had to have it.
So have at it, make fun of me, kick mud on my windshield. Just don't scratch my voodoo blue paint.
Glad to hear it. There's an unpaved road near my house, maybe I'll take a crack at that. :lol:Nah.. I think you'll find all kinds here and it seems that most are daily drivers as well. Some are active off-roaders, some are formers off-roaders that still play a little and some have/will never been off road. I'm in the category of "former off-roader that takes 5000 mile roadtrips to drive on a simple dirt trail".. No intense rocks, water crossings, mud or days in the wilderness.. More like B&B off-roading.. LOL.. Welcome.. Ron
Good to see I'm not the only one in the SE!Congrats on the new FJ.
If you would like to go to an FJ event that does not include offroading there is an event in Cades Cove close to Gatlinburg on Memorial weekend.
I already absolutely do. Every car purchase I've made in the past has been for practical reasons. This one I just really wanted, if for nothing else than to run over Prius owners.Welcome John. You're gonna love the truck. :wave:
