    Anyone up here in VA, or am I the first?
    Maybe we can set up some cool truck meets, wrenching, wheeling, and food!

    I just joined this forum today in hopes of linking up with some locals. I'm from Newport News. It looks like not many people in here are from this area. I bought my 02 4Runner 3 years ago and have never loved a vehicle like these! I'm eager to go off roading but not sure if there's anywhere to go that doesn't involve just mud in our neck of the woods. Do you go off roading?

    The 4runners are actually my first 4wds, to be honest, and I have yet to start that project. I have gone mudding/trail riding with others in their trucks, but most of my offroad experience has been in my 2wd Tacoma at the scrap yard. :laugh: And that one time I got stuck in a pit behind the Merchant Tires on Battlefield Blvd., but that place is gone now, they made a road back there.
    I know there's a place off Tim Road in Virginia Beach, and there's Slade's Offroad Park, but I definitely need to look up other spots.
    Hopefully we can find a couple more locals, and start having meets!
    What part of Newport News are you from? I used to live near Heritage High School, on Wickham Ave.

    Congrats on getting the 4runner! Unfortunately, we're on opposite ends of the state. I'm down close to the NC line, in Chesapeake. I'm sure there's gotta be some other N.VA members, though!

    Great to have you up on this forum J! how's the new addition? We can teach her to overland with us this summer. You should get a special baby rig with it's own wheel and controls so she can mirror you.

    Anyway, hope we can all get together--along with NHT and his jeep--and do some overlanding and practicing for bigger runs.

    Chesapeake here... I'd love to get involved to do some wheeling. I have a lot of experience with Land Rovers but this is my first 4Runner. I do a lot of wrenching if anyone in the area needs some help...

    Think you could drill and tap a sheared lower ball joint bolt before I take it into a shop? Changed out my LBJ's and cv's for CVJ's. Last bolt to torque and brand new OEM bolt snapped on me.

    Man this is a bad week with Mother's Day this weekend. I'm pretty sure we can get that out.

    Shouldn't need to tap it. We can get the bolt out I'm sure. My wife would kill me if I did it this weekend, but maybe one evening next week?

    I'd say it's time for a VA meet and greet and some trail time.
