I would like to thank everyone that came out today for our 5th annual RS Rally. We are still waiting on the numbers, but I seemed it was a little smaller than last year. We did have a few more 45's and 55's than in prior years and it seemed we had less 40's.

Special thanks to the Rally Committee for all of their hard work. Thank you to our vendors: Slee, GO Toyota, Red Line, Addicted Off Road, Stay the Trail, GOT CRUISER?, Spector Off Road, Aqualu, Mean Green, Groove Toyota, and Boulder Toyota.

The Slee Dogs and Slee Burgers were very tasty; thank you to the grill masters. The Slee tent (aka VIP Lounge) was very nice with the portable A/C unit.

Again I sincerely thank everyone for making it a safe and memorable event. If there was anything that you think could make this event better please PM me.

Here are some shots Emily got of the '60s and a couple of the '40s. I was the ugly bearded guy with the hoodless 60 series, I got some funny looks but met some cool people.

Thanks again,

Brad

I just used my Spector Off-Road gift certificate raffle prize for every single FJCruiser item they had....Except the gear bag, kind of spendy..

When you buy 20.00 or more you get a free FJcruiser toy car.

Thanks again for the great raffle prizes...

Chris as you know that is part of the hard work put into the Rally is getting some cool prizes. I bet you know some kids that would love to play with a FJC toy. When you redeem your prizes please be sure to thank the vendors for their continued support.

Thanks to Neil Q. for hauling home my FJ Cruiser wheels and tires! Can't believe I won something. Too bad they are for 5 lugs rather than 6 -- would love to throw them on one of my Cruisers.

How can FJ Cruiser wheels be 5 lug? They are 6. Unless they are 100/200 / Tundra wheels.

Matt, I think they are Tundra rims. Either way, you got some more money coming to the Cruiser fund. Congrats:cheers:

Sell the wheels and keep the tires:D

IIRC they were 17" size wheels and tires....I see a Craigslist add in Matt's future :)

Matt, you're lucky Kevin's such an honest guy...We were getting tired of him calling your name and it was looking like a riot might ensue at any minute :lmao:

I think they are 18" wheels. I'll have to check again.

My name got called twice, right? First wheels/tires, then a pair of shocks.

Yeah...Just the twice :hill:

Actually it might have gotten called again for a shirt or something but Kevin had a hard time reading the name so we burnt the ticket :lmao:

Well, at least I didn't win 2 winches, right? :D

Nope, you didn't. That I can guarantee since there weren't any winches in the raffle :D

It was funny because you and this other guy both won the tires/wheel combos and then you both won the sets of shocks...I heard rumors of rumblings in the crowd that the raffle was fixed :hill:

Non of us non-Tundra owners were smart enough to throw tickets in the box to win stuff for a rig we didn't have so it might have just been you two in the raffle :rolleyes:

I would have gotten tickets for the tires, to sell on Craigslist or Ebay. But moving them would have been a pain.

I don't know what tires and wheels you won , but I have a 2000 toyota tundra trd and they are 6 lug 16x8 wheels. come to think of it all the toyota trucks that I have owned a 86 4x4 and a 91 4x4 have been 6 lug not 5

I have an 07 Tundra, 5 lug. The 07-10 Tundra's/Sequia's (sp) are 5 lug. Plus I helped the guy unload them and both set's of tires are for the Tundra/Sequia (sp). 18" are stock on that truck.
