Why wait for it to get worn! Just SAC it hehe!TACOZILLA said:I am thinking about getting one to replace one of my daily drivers, the 97 Jeep Cherokee...I also have a 97 Ford F-350 4x4 that I use as a daily driver and also serves as a tow rig to haul TACOZILLA from event to event. If I did get a FJ however I would more than likely modify it after the new has worn off of it. By modify I mean the IFS would go bye bye!
Hey Taco,TACOZILLA said:I guess I should answer my own little survey here!
Moab, Tellico, Rubicon, Las Cruces, Farmington, Paragon, Hot Springs, Clayton, Del Rio and many places here in Texas that you've probablly never even heard of!
I don't think you need a party for their monthly rides. Check out their website. http://www.paragonap.com/Tone said:The only terrain I wheel in...considering it's all that's around here....is trees! Lot's of tight twisting mountain trails. I love to explore the unexplored and conquer unrealistic obstacles. Fortunately, I never failed to conquer anything too crazy. =)
With that in mind, I need those steel cables that are connected to the top of the windsheild, and the front of the fenders...to push away tree limbs. And I need a bull bar of some sort, whatever looks the coolest. I need a bunch of lights too, it's always dark out for some reason. Hmm, oh and a snorkel. The occasional puddle/pond is fun to tear asunder.
My first off-road vehicle was my '97 Wrangler and I had a lot of fun with it rallying in wet coal with slick 31" tires. SO MUCH FUN!
SOMEONE TAKE ME TO PARAGON OR RAUSCH CREEK!!! I want to go, but you need a party of vehicles. I have no friends that wheel. One of you that live in or near PA should totally go to Paragon in Hazleton with me. I want to get one of those orange flags for my Taco, lol. =)
We had our National Event (TTORA TakeOver 2005) in Paragon last July. Too bad you weren't aware of it. Close to 100 rigs attended our event. Toyota brought out one of the protype FJC's to display at the banquet dinner they sponsored for us there in Hazelton at the Eagle Rock Resort. They also provide our event t-shirts which all participants get a free t-shirt. TRD reps were there doing surveys and handing out all kinds of cool free TRD stuff. And then of coarse all of our sponsors gave away some really nice items for our raffle. Not to mention all the wheelin that went on!Tone said:SOMEONE TAKE ME TO PARAGON OR RAUSCH CREEK!!!

I've been to the Den on more than one occasion. It's pretty challenging for moderately built rigs. People with extremely built rigs get kinda bored out there though. Never seen any of these crosses you speak of?Jumper said:There is a place in San Antonio called "Devils Den" which is about 20 acres of hills, trails, creeks, mud, limestone and swampland, smack dab in the middle of the northwest side of the city. The lower half of it is surrounded by freeway and the top half is in the shadow of Seaworld. Its a crazy, dangerous place. As you drive along the trails you see numerous crosses in memory of those who died there. Hence the name "Devils Den".
Haha, I should have turned the lights out and held a flashlight under my face.
Have some cheese with that Napa Valley whine. You're closer to Rubicon than Tacozilla is to the Devil's Den. And what about Lombard Street???i need to get the hell out of the bay area. this is drivin me friggin nuts hearing about everyone living in the backyard of nature and crap. dammit!
