    Hello and Welcome to the SoCal Meet and Greet thread!
    Monthly meets are held every last Friday of the month.

    Originally known as the Official T4R.ORG Meet and Greet Thread, the invite now extends to other Toyota forums. Friends, family, pets, all welcome! ​



    My name is James, I'm a moderator over on T4R.ORG. A few months back, I started a monthly meet and greet for 4Runners. News spread over here to 4Runners.com, where the invite is extended to anyone who wants to come by and hang out!

    Parking lot style! We can all get to know one another. Potential trail runs can be planned (this thread is a great place to start). Ideal spot for such a thing would be a place to eat... we can all get some grub and check out some nice rigs. All gens of 4Runner, Tacoma, Pickup, FJ, Tundra, all welcome!

    Why no wheeling, James, you chicken? I remember when I first got my T4R. My 3rd gen was 2WD and I didn't know much about automotive technology. Wheeling meets were already a no go for me, until some T4R friends invited me for a fun 2WD capable run. It was no excitement for their trucks, but I had a lot of fun. The only reason that ever happened is because of a parking lot meet at The Hat in Fullerton, CA. Bringing people together is the sole reason for this meet, and the potential trail runs and gatherings that may succeed it.

    THIRD MEET OFFICIAL DATE: Let's see if we can gather at least 15 rigs to beat our last turnout!
    Friday, May 30th @ 7PM


    Fourth Meet Official Date:
    Friday, June 27th @ 7PM

    Location:

    I might try to get to the next one and drag my neighbor out. 29 palms is kinda out of the way with gas prices.
