Hi All - Been lurking here off and on and thought it's time to introduce myself. Below is my new cruiser - '88 FJ62, rust free, pretty much stock with sliders and BFG 31x10.5x31.

I'll add that I may be a "senior" member of the cruiser community by age, certainly not experience as recent events have proven. :eek: As a MN transplant my wife and I love mountain drives and after sitting at the base of Tincup last Summer my wife said "We need a 4x4!" I wasn't about to argue, thus the 62. :D

As a retired "at-home dad" I's like to say "Hi!" to Michael Aaron if he's still doing that gig himself.

Welcome! Wow, what a pretty red 62! Mike Aaron (Uglibus) left us poor chaps here in Colorado a couple years ago for the hills of Idaho, but he still pops in from time to time on the forum. You can always shoot him a PM, either here or on ih8mud. Thanks for posting up! :)

Here's part of the meeting minutes that got omitted:

CardinalFJ60: "Hello, my name is Shawn, I'm a Cruiser-holic"

RisingSun Members: "HELLO! Shawn"

...that a rookie with a red 62 would be like showing up at a Hell's Angel meeting in a Sportster. ;)

subzali: "Hi, I don't have a Cruiser but I have a red 4x2 pickup...(two years later); hi, I'm Matt, a few of you have dragged me on trail runs, and I finally got the 40 I've been dreaming of, but I want to do a lot of things to it but am in college and have no $$$ or experience."

Rising Sun members: "FINALLY :D ...here's some free or cheap parts :eek: "

Thanks a TON to everybody, once I graduate I owe ALL of you rounds after one of the meetings, that is once I can pay the club dues :rolleyes: Cheers!

Welcome noob! Don't worry, you can park in the 62 section. Us old 62 owners stick together. Make that us 62 owners that are old stick together. Circle the wagons!!

It starts out about our common shared addiction and loyalty to our Toyota 4x4s, and ends up being great friends!

Okay, I'll give it a try and show up at the 12/7 meeting. Thanks to everyone for the comments and special thanks to Crash for the above that was most convincing that I may not be the only old guy w/ a 62. :D

Thanks for mentioning that Perry. I've copied the info but find it unlikely that I will be able to free myself up at this late date. :( Pretty busy time of the year...
