    Always saving pennies for more
    After the nearly 3 month long spam attack at t4r.org, someone pointed me in the direction of this forum. I'm hopeful to find the same information and entertainment that was there, just with a tad bit less spammy spam inundating every thread, lol.

    My Toyota experience:
    1985 2wd truck
    1998 TRD Tacoma (my lease payment was $428...wtf was I thinking,lol)
    2008 FJ
    2014 4R Trail

    I just got the Trail last August and haven't even put 10k miles on it yet, but I'm loving it. I do miss the FJ, since we used to get to the mountains about 2x a month with it, and I am still wary of beating up the Trail since it is so shiny and new (to me).

    I'm swapping my 255/80s on Tuesday for some 285/70s.

    I traded the FJ in. I can't say that was the smartest thing I've ever done, lol. In my defense it was starting to get pretty rusty underneath. I bought it with 105k on the clock....so it was just about broken in. It was a good 4x4. I put a bunch of work into it, suspension lift, tires, control arms, winch, winch bumper, etc.

    I'm more irritated by the lack of giving a crap by the forum owners/admins. Oh well.

    How are those wildpeak tires treating you? I'm gonna get my Pro Comps ATs installed on Tuesday. I was looking at the Falken's but got a killer deal on the Pros.

    I am in the same boat as a few new members here. T4r.org has gone to crap and 4runners.com was brought up so thought I would check this place out.

    Well anyway this place seems pretty cool, lots of good info but lacking in the cheap Chinese knockoff drug dept.

    Cool to see a fair number of new members here! I got my new tires today..no more pull!

    Pro Comp AT Sport, 285/70r17...so far I'm happy, especially since I didn't have to fight the steering wheel on the way home, lol.

    I think you’ll find that the owner of TW this site and tundras.com is pretty passionate about the forums and we are pretty quick to catch the spam when it happen as well as you’ll never see the sites inundated with ad’s like some other sites

    X2 the great one himself @Bob :bowdown:, is very dedicated on the sites to ensure eveyone plays nice and if there are issues they are handled appropriately. ( Then there are some mods behind the scenes to do some dirty work :spy:)
