    Nice! I love my FJ60. Hopefully one day I'll have an FJ40 as well.

    Thanks! I sadly sold my beloved FJ40 to get this 60. Have a family now and needed the extra room. Loved my 40, but the 60 is the better platform for me these days.

    So far I've owned 3 FJ40's, 2 FJ60's, three Toyota pickups, a Tacoma and a Tundra. Always been a Toyota guy, driving them 25 years and counting!

    Here's a pic of my old '73 FJ40.

    I owned a 2001 Highlander for a long time, flawless operation up to 118,000 miles and traded it recently for a 2010 FJC. I have been lusting for the FJ for a while. I'm in love. Great upgraded suspension, lifted 3 inches, Demello bumpers, warn winch, 110,000 miles and near perfect condition.

    RC Toyota trucks...! I'd feel like a little kid again if I had a mini version of my own rig. The Mrs. and I were laughing really hard at some of these. Do not click if you're doing anything productive. These are time sinks and a complete waste of time.

    Be careful. One of the smartest guys from my high school (later went to Yale undergrad, then Yale med school) was deer hunting from the trunk of an automobile, and he put a round through the back window tracking a deer through a scope. Yeah, he will never live that down...lol

    Out in Western MD last weekend, found a little used OHV trail and had some fun in the snow.
    Only had about 3" but still good times!

    Edit: the snow was blown around in the cleanings for the power lines.

    I want a new one so bad, or even better, a Tacoma. But my 1 owner '98 4Runner with 150k just won't have any of that talk. Just the other night I was looking at new ones online... next morning she told me via a loud and disturbing U Joint squeeking that that kind of talk will not be tolerated. I promptly took her in for new ones, and a new tie rod as an "I'm sorry" gift for good measure, and promised not to do that again.

    In the last year I have now replaced quite a bit (water pump, timing belt, starter, alternator, rotors, u joints, Catalytic and O2 sensors, belts, plugs, tires, brakes, battery, etc) so looks like I'm going to try to drive it for another 150k. Love that truck and not having a payment too.

    What's that color called? I saw a TRD 4runner that same color a few months back on the highway, and could never figure out what it is. I like it.

    Quicksand. Code 4V6.
    Was originally only available on the FJ, then for 2016 was available on TRD model Tacomas, 4runners, and Tundras.

    My 4Runner has changed a bit over the last 6 months.

    Original

    Current




    So far "Bullit" has done the Grand Canyon (North Rim), southern Utah, Devil's Chasm, and El Camino del Diablo. Planned trips include Mojave Road, Death Valley, Alpine Loop, White Rim, etc.

    While overlanding like this isn't strictly bushcraft, the skills I've learned here sure make the camping part of it a lot more enjoyable for everyone involved.

    No need to post pictures of my Toyotas a sienna and a corolla. I worked at a Toyota dealership for 15 years as a Toyota master tech until I got a job working for the government building and fixing stuff for the police department. Now we have lots of undercover Toyota police cars.

    MetalTech is the one on my 4R. Pelfreybilt also makes exceptional front bumpers for 4R.

    For your bucket list of places to go:

    Az - White Pocket, Coyote Butte, Gunsite Butte overlook above Lake Powell
    Utah - Maze District
    Colorado - about half of the eastern portion of the Alpine Loop is boring. Go in July because the wildflowers are amazing
    Death Valley - Eureka Sand Dunes, Steel Pass, Saline Hot Springs, Wildrose Kilns, Saline Salt Tram loop

    That's a good list. Did White Pocket and Coyote Butte (South and North) last year. Death Valley is next month. Alpine Loop is already scheduled for July. Doing White Rim in Canyonlands (Island in the Sky) in October and including Capitol Reef and the Burr Road with hopefully a ride on Hall's Ferry if they get it fixed. The Maze is on the list as well, probably in 2018. Will also hit the Mojave Road over in Cali this March.

    Very Good! I looked at my map for the Alpine Loop and basically there is not much worth seeing after stopping for the flowers in American Basin which is right after Cinnamon Pass. The road out to and then a ways past Lake City (almost halfway to Engineer Pass) is basically taking you away from better things to see. A better loop is from Silverton to Animas Forks to California Gulch, Hurricane Pass and back past Gladstone to Silverton or through Eureka Gulch to Silverton. The old stage road from Telluride to Tomboy to Imogene Pass are really great too. After Imogene consider Yankee Boy Basin which is great for the views and the flowers.

    If the season is good there will be lots of flowers. Be sure to post up pictures after each of your trips.

    Did you build that trailer? The 4Runner and trailer look very familiar from another forum. Posted on Garage Journal perhaps? Or maybe it was Badger and Blade?

    Funny how you see the same folks on different unrelated forums. I responded to a picture post on Bike Forums stating, "You could do a lot of bushwacking on that fat bike..." as it was here that I saw the picture first.

    The trailer started life with a since-defunct company that wanted to compete with the likes of Adventure Trailers. Their timing was poor and they never progressed past their prototype. I found it on Craigslist and have labored to get it up to its full potential. I rewired it and removed all of the potential fires by adding in breakers and fuses and switched to all LED lighting. I integrated the solar charging, shorepower charger, fuses, breakers and other electrical items onto one panel in the nose box. The electric drum brakes were not set up correctly and now function really well. I added in the gas cans and mounts, and the awning and mounts. I ended up redesigning and replacing the original water tank. The new one includes internal baffles and the new design eliminate the cracks that plagued the original.

    The trailer has a solid frame, suspension that performs really well, a spacious cargo area, removeable lid and tailgate and it tracks really well offroad. I may not have built it but all of the rough edges have been polished well. I've had it about 6 years so besides my blog there have been photos of it on a number of offroad forums.

    You are right that a large number of people have common interests that span numerous topics across forums. Most of those forums touch upon how we love to spend time in the great outdoors.
