Hello from Oswego, IL. Have a 2008 FJ Cruiser, although I'm interested in 4x4 Tacomas.

Good to hear from ya parnass. The FJ is a nice ride, I love my taco tough. I'm not sure if you read the whole thread, but I had an idea to get some ppl together that are in our area for a meet and greet kinda thing. Unfortunatelly I've been working 70-95 hours a week the past month and a half . As soon as I go to my regular 40s a week I have an intention to try and get a hold of everyone that replied to this thread, so we can get something going. I'd love to see you there and everyone else. Also if you know anyone that owns a Taco bring them along, that goes for everyone. Like they say the more the marrier .

new '10 owner here. I don't consider my self chicagoland really (I do everything possible to avoid chicago area) but am close enough to be in the geographical area over by the rockford/dekalb/sycamore/rochelle area. Lots of trucks here, but very few taco's. theres a handful, but not many. do see a couple of nice first gens around though.


65tacodude- I was actually down in Crete a couple of weekends ago at badlandz paintball park, when I am down that direction I'll have to watch for you.

Good to hear from ya wolf. Unfortunatelly I haven't had the slightest amount of time to come up with any thing lately. If anyone is interested propose a date that you would want to get something together.

Soo finally my work place is starting to slow down a bit. I want to get some opinions from you guys on a possibe date for a meet and greet. I think a day on a weekend would be really good, but don't let that limit you. Lets see some dates!

No I do not. I wouldn't doubt that some of the members would be able to help, NwiTACO seems interested in helping out, and heck I would be interested too as long as we have a place to do it at.

We don't have to do it in Nov. I would like to have as many members join as possible. I would love to learn something new too.

14th Seems to work for me.

I can and am willing to help anybody that needs it. I have installed many lifts, Toyotas, Jeeps, and have full tools, tubing bender and a welder. I have made shock mounts, bumpstops, sliders, skids, etc...

If anyone wants some work done, PM me.
