Hello everybody. Just purchased an 07 fj Tuesday and took it straight to gulches. Skip, the owner down there, suggested I look you guys up so here I am. Seems like a pretty tight community here. Can't wait to get to URE. Hopefully see you guys there. My names Will btw.

Welcome...see you on the trails soon or hopefully at the Raleigh NCFJ Event April 27th. Great event for great charity (Victor Junction) and a great opportunity to meet lots of folks and possibly win some awesome prizes.

Welcome. That is awesome that Skip mentioned us!.

Definitely stay tuned for upcoming rides. I think everyone wants to get back down to Gulches in the near future since we've been getting rained out!

I personally just use Photobucket and copy the media link that has the [IMG] tags around it.

But there are many hosting sites like Image Shack, ect.

Here are a few before and after Gulches pics. Also wanted to see if any of yall recognize this fj? I bought it from scott clark toyota and all the upgrades on it were already done by the previous owner. Looks like a 1 1/2 in. body lift with 315/75/16 nitto grapplers.stock suspension. trd intake.silver bullet throttle body spacer. looks like a trd exhaust. i have other plans for it but its a start.

Sweet truck cheers

You'll want to get rid of the bull bar though when you're ready to come to Uwharrie tongue

yeah that bull bar is maybe cool looking ...but will serve more as a hinderance off road...it could potentially cause more damage than protection...

what does the truck have on it as it sits as far as suspension ?? is the body mount chopped? what kind of shocks are on it?

Are you on stock suspension? If so, that would be my next mod. If you have that some plating underneath helps.

A CB is great for enjoying the witty commentary that gets thrown around.
