Hey everyone!

I'm from the Lumberton NC area but I currently live up in DC/MD. Since I go back home often I figured I would become a member and possibly join you guys on some meet and greats or trail runs.

My rig:
2013 Army Green FJ
18" XD Series Crank Rims
285/65/18 Nitto Trail Grapplers
3" Pro-Comp Suspension Lift

FAB FOUR Front Bumper
White Knuckle Rock Sliders
Baja Rack w/light bar PIAA lights
Airaid CAI
....and some other things

This pic is from my last outing. Did some camping up at Green Ridge State Forest in MD.


I'm into more of the expedition/overland type off roading but I'm down for anything that needs 4x4. Hope I get a chance to meet some of you guys soon. Also if your ever up in the DC area let me know.

That's good to know. I see your from Huntersville, do you live near Lake Norman? Only reason I ask is because my girlfriend is from Denver and we spend a lot of time on the Lake during the warmer months.

Yep. 5 minutes from the lake on the opposite side of Denver basically. I used to spend time on the lake till the kids came along. Then I had to sell the boat :/

I understand that. Whenever I'm back out that way I'll be sure to contact you.

Yeah I figured that by decreasing the size of the side wall it would increase the handle of the rig as well as decreasing the body roll. But I cant really tell a difference anymore so once these tires are done I'll be going with something else. Most likely a 16's because they are much cheaper than 18 inch tires.

You live and you learn. Very Happy

Not right now. Maybe after I put another 20k miles on my current ones. And by the looks of it I'll be at 20k in a couple months.

I went there to wrestle. When I stopped wrestling, I got the hell out of dodge! It was more of the school and less of the area I disliked.
