PostSubject: New Guy from Mebane, NC.   Fri Sep 14, 2012 5:39 pm

Hello folks, new kid on the block.
Bought a 12' Iceberg Convenience/upgrade truck from Cox in Burlington last month.
I have had 2 CJ's and 1 FJ40 over the years.
I jumped right in and put Bilstein 5100 level kit Front set on #4 and non adjustable rears.
Nose is up. I like the "California" look. Might be to high others.
17X8 Sport Edition TK 6 wheels "TRD looking" but 17".
Nitto Terra Grapplers 285/70/17. No rubbing.[img][/img]

what says its locked? as far as the pics go
1.)click on icon that says host an image
2.)it will ask you to choose a file, do so
3.)then click "host it"
4.)let the site serveimg download it ...then there will be 3 different lines with the file name...
5.) click the middle file...right click copy then rick click post to the text pane that youare typing in....then click preview...

Outer Banks trip the end of October is all that is set I think. I'm in Browns Summit and there are several guys close by so we could always plan something!

Paintless,
Welcome! Glad you're able to get here and post even if it is just on my link. Never heard of anyone having the "locked" problem. Maybe David B. knows why? Also glad we're adding to the Iceberg Nation!

PM me or email me if you have any questions.

I'll point David B. (President/Founder of NCFJ Cruisers) toward this thread to check out the problem you're having.

From our "How To" section:

POST A PICTURE on the forum


So you have a picture on your computer you want to share with the forum... How do you get it on the forum. Follow these easy steps

1) go to www.photobucket.com and create a free account
2) click upload and upload the pictures you want
3) view your albums and hover your mouse over the picture you want to post.
4) click the bottom option for sharing, it should be forum sharing
5) the link will automatically copy
6) paste the link into your text box where you would create a new post.

Hope this helps for those of you not as familiar with the way forums work

What exactly are you trying to view that says it is locked? There are sections of the forum that are "read only" and only editable by myself and the Moderators.

Welcome to the group Painless. You are the FJ I keep seeing at Natty greens uptown Greensboro and on the Highway. Congrats on the buy and the guys down at Cox Toyota are some of the best service people I have seen yet. Plus you just did miss us we use to live in Graham now we are in Greensboro.

Thanks, working on the OBX trip.

And thanks Dave and Paul.

Question. Does anyone have a gobi ladder they would like to sell.

Just wondering, before I order a new one.



Thanks.
