    Hows it going everyone, my name is Joel :D I'm 24 married and I have 2 boys. I live in Simi Valley, SoCal. I have an 02 Single cab lifted 2.4L auto.

    Gutless little truck but it does me just fine.

    Joined the forums to pass some time and maybe learn a thing or 2 more.

    Future plans for my truck is return to stock height lower rear to lvl out intake muffler and get my radio to work lol. Get my spair tire mounted again and kind of put my truck back togther with out taking out the soundsystem.


    OR


    Do a solid axle swap and build a 4x4 maybe v6 or v8 swap idk havent done alot of research yet on it but well see lol. I see acouple solid axle 4x guys in simi but never have had the chance to ask them a few questions.

    Would be great to be pointed in the right directon lol

    Hope to meet some cool people

    Joel

    Welcome to TW!!! I used to live in Simi but its been about 7 years now or almost that long. My parents still live out there off of Strearns St. though!!:D I lived out there for a bout 14 years until I moved out of the state. I loved Simi but it has grown so much since I grew up there.:eek: I'm still a Cali boy at heart though and always will be.;)

    Simi is ok to raise a family but nothing to do and nowhere to go. lol

    I guess I cant complain. I've lived in simi for 23 years now Woot Woot. Cali is fine but im over it, if it wasnt for economy I would move away out of state. Tried to go army but they want me to have college credits so thats on the back burner now since college doesnt enroll till he end of this month.

    Haha, nothing to do and no where to go huh?!?!:cool: My closest Wal-Mart or shopping mall is 120 miles east of me in Salt Lake City, Utah!!!:eek: I'm a city boy myself so living in a 7,500 population town that revolves around casinos isnt my biggest cup of tea.:eek: Its just the job that is keeping me here.

    But hey, I'm a little older then you but what school did you graduate from? Simi High or Royal? Maybe we know each other?!?!:eek: That would be crazy!!

    Welcome to the board! I'm right from there in Moorpark.

    And speaking of nothing to do there, get a motorcycle and ride the back roads out there like Grimes and Balcom Canyon or go hit up the Santa Monica mountains for some real fun.

    Oh yeah?!?! I'm sure I have driven by your house a million times when I used to live out there!! We used to go to the mall quite often when we got bored of Simi.:cool:

    I'm sure she does. Simi is a great place IMO and yes, Cali is super busy!!:goingcrazy:

    Moorpark in the house now!!!:D I went to college for 2 years up there!!! Well its been about 10 years but you get the picture!!;)
