    what part of Ohio are you in? I'm in the Columbus area, but will travel for a good 4Runner wrench fest!

    I am just a little south of Dayton. My 01 is lifted but only with 265s. THatfield, might take you up on the wrench-fest sometime soon. I will be replacing the LBJs, ITREs and OTREs. Definitely going with Toyota OEM LBJs. I would love to get one of the Safari steering racks eventually but gonna have to save for that purchase.

    Ripcord, are you in Ohio? I have seen your 4runner on T4 forum. One of my favorites, really like what you did to that 4runner. While I am envious as heck of it, that is a motivator to keep improving on mine.

    Nope, that was not me. I haven't been up in that neck of the woods since my buddy graduated from OSU years ago. Dublin is a very nice area. I am in Miamisburg. There are a lot of the new 4runners driving around down here.
    You, THatfield, and I should meet up sometime, plus any other 4runner owners from the general area. I always read about 4runner meet-n-greets in other areas of the country. Maybe plan a 4runner convoy over to Indianapolis for the 4 Wheel jamboree this September. I haven't been over there for a long time. Great event, definitely get your fill of lifted 4x4s there.
    I see that you work for Honda, in suspension engineering. I work as an engineering tech for BWI group. We are always testing dampers for Acura. We are known for the Magna-Ride system. We are always testing for the NSX platform.

    What a small world it is! That is pretty cool. I have experienced those particular products, awesome stuff :D

    RE: Jambo, I have another 4runner friend here at work that would be interested, he isn't on the forums though. You can definitely count me in.

    i'd be down for a trip to Jambo! Now the pressure is on to install lift and snorkel!

    Definitely will have to do a wrench fest soon. I'm pretty well booked through the first half of July though. :(
