I need to thank everyone for being so helpful to my many stupid questions. I especially want to thank Lance (Excrement) and Don (TiTank) for helping and teaching me as we have built up the Fungi Finder. Also thanks to all the guys and girls who come to the fun chill sessions we have.


I'm sure there is a bunch of stuff I can't remember at the moment.... and I'll be adding and changing things all the time. I'll try to edit this post to keep it as accurate as possible. I'll also add some photos of some of the installations and various products I'm running. I absolutely love this truck! Most fun I've ever had with a vehicle.

Oh.... and stickers up the ass! :rocker:

Thanks guys! I know it took forever.... I'm kinda stupid.... took me about ten months to learn how to post pics!:huh: I'm working on getting pics of all the mods and stuff so I can work on this thread. I'm not sure exactly where to start so this is me and my brother's newborn.... 29 year old weirdo who loves the outdoors, mushroom hunting, and my dogs. Thats wright...I'm a sticker AND t-shirt whore and I love it!!! :lol:



My two copilots... Tundra and Chanterelle (yes I named her after a shroom):

She is an 07...I will have had her for a year in september. 15,000 miles on her so far.

Found some funky fungal fruitings the last time I went out. The Shroom Seaker is living up to it's name:

I guess I'll just document my various mods starting with the interior. I just finished installing the stainless gauge face from US Speedo. I know I got the first one they produced... not sure if others have done this mod yet. May be too blingy for some... but I like it. Easily reversed too. The main reason I got it is because I find the bright white gauge face to be tiring on my eyes. The blue and red on the new face will be much easier on the eyes.

The gauge is really interesting. Where did you get it? How difficult was it to replace?

Wow, ToledoFJ, who knew?!!! You have an amazing FJ, and that gauge cluster looks really cool when lit up. You seem to like the bling, I was checking out all your gold in that pic with "you and your brother's newborn". Pretty cool of you to have a kid with your brother and all...:worried:

Just kidding!! :lol:

BTW, what's up with all the shrooms? Are they psychedelic, make you happy, hallucinogenic shrooms, or just plain old fungusseses?
