    Hey kids, I know SDTree03, he invited me to a run so I though I would register here and say hi. Hope i'm not crashing your party, even though I drive a jeep. I am however a Toyota Certified Technician. Went threw the Cypress College automotive program, and have been in dealers for 3 years. My off road vehicle of choice, is a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee "Freedom Edition". It sits upon 16x7 early WJ model grand rims, wrapped in Goodyear MTR 245/75/16(duh hehe). A weak budget boost(2 inch spacers), and Chystler brand "Up country" 1 inch coils. With Ranch RS 5000 shocks, and rancho RS steering stabilizer. Have removed the rear sway bar completely, and the front has disconnects. My off road arsenal contains a air pump for after wheelin use. A tire plug kit, full size spare, tow strap, front and rear recovery points, 2 d-rings, and a d-ring shackle, shovel, and hi-lift jack which I don't carry(yet). She has seen Big Bear, Cleghorn, Hungry Valley, Stoddard Valley, Azusa Canyon. holy jim canyon. And soon where ever tri is taking me lol. Can't wait to meet some REAL Toyota drivers, and do some wheelin. Hopefully I won't embarrass myself to bad, i am open open. I know most of you taco guys have 1 locker.

    Peace
    Ted

    Honestly had a truck, 03 ranger edge 4.0 5speed, loved it, was tired of the people hey can you move this or that blah blah blah. So I bought this. I was looking at the FJ, But due to the inability to turn my eyes left or right, the blind spots in it were just to bad. So when I found this thing I fell in love. And have been in love ever since. Although there are some bad tacos on this here forum.

    Peace

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome, have been to many rig specific forums, that are Nazis about people joining with a non-forum specific rig. Hope to meet some of you on this run and more on a future run.

    Peace

    Hi Ted. I've meet Tri at one of the SD meets, he's a nice guy. But welcome and maybe I'll see you around and/or you will trade your Jeep in for a TACO. :)

    Thanks Tracy, not likely to trade :p but you never know, if I was have a taco I would want to do solid axle conversion. Love tacomas, don't love the price tag.
