This forum is really cool. I have had my 08 FJ since 11/07 and really love it. I never thought I could get sucked in to spending tons of money on a vehicle or get that interested in offroading but here I am with over 11,000.00 in upgrades and spending time at work on a forum about my vehicle.I never would have guessed that my life would take this kind of a turn. Maybe it's mid life crisis.

lol. It becomes a lifestyle. The forum just adds to the fun. You'll take that next step when you actually hit the trails with a bunch of other FJs!

Good point. Everybody has their own vision of what his/her fj is going to look like. One of the fun parts of owning vehicles like this is making that vision come true. For some their visions are a stock FJ from the stealer lot, for others a lifted FJ, with skids and a front locker. In the end we enjoy ourselves in a creative way. I know all my current and future mods have a reason, so its not a waste for me.

Don't believe the armadillo guy. He's just being silly. He's is pretty modded. He's more addicted any most.

Hey Biff...you're on Calguns.net, right? Looks like you're in my area too (SGV). Let's hit up the trails, or the firing range sometime.

The question now is...what will cost more, shooting the ammo, or the gas spent getting to the range? ;)

A year ago I would have thought that spending that kind of loot on a brand new vehicle was insanity.I must be posessed now. I went out to watch the FJ Challenge with my stock FJ and attempted to do some of Claw Hammer. What A Joke, Hey if I,m going to do this offroading thing I want to do it right.
