Hello

I had the opportunity to be in Ocala over the last 2 days on business, and took advantage of the opportunity to meet up with Ray & Angel (Ynke Dad & TxMomma as I've always known them from corvetteflorida.com) for dinner.
A couple of A#1, great folks that I consider very good friends.

The last time I saw them he had the jeep, but this time...WOW!
New bumpers, top....looks spectacular brother!!

He is stoked about the Jeep and spoke very highly of the foum. I told him I'd come aboard and check it out.

Very nice place you have here.

I've always been a fan of the Jeep (from way back in the day) and Ray's is an excellent example!
Heck, even my wife, who could generally care less about a vehicle as anything more than point to point mobility, was stoked about it!

As we left she was munbling some incoherent nonsense about "If you'd sell your Landcruiser, I could get into this....blah blah blah...."
Women! Go figure?

Anyway, as I promised Ray, I'm on and going to lurk around a bit if you don't mind?
I have an 89 FJ62 Landcruiser so don't run me out on a rail please...I love 'em all!

Thanks and wheel on!

Yotas are good in my book. Had an 86 fj60, 300k plus when it finally died of the northeast cancer, body was rusting to dust.

Welcome to jko.

Rest In Peace Guinness. You will never be forgotten. My brother and my best friend

lI can fix that rep for ya brother
Same here as well. The wife certainly liked the Jeep, which kind of surprised me frankly. She hated my FJ40!

I'm looking but taking my time. Can't go back in debt on a vehicle. Just now getting out

Welcome to jko.
Thanks guinness. Yea, body rot will kill the old FJ's way before the engine dies in most cases. Mines in pretty good shape and I just got a ton of parts to redo the interior and such. Was planning on an engine swap to an Ls based (vette or Camaro) engine, but I may just dump that whole idea and stick with the old reliable (read SLOW - FUEL HOGGISH-TORQUEY) FE engine.
The things got a TON of cargo room inside and room for 5 with ease. Just getting harder and harder to find parts

Besides, I kinda like the idea of an Unlimited X with a hemi myself

Ray, we'll see you guys again soon. Might even drag myself over to Daytona for the Jeep Bash.

Gordon
