Mapping Crew and Land Cruiser Specialist - Colorado

Many in the Land Cruiser community may know me by my user name on the various forums, nuclearlemon. I am into all things Land Cruiser. It started in the 1980s when i was living in Illinois and was chatting with a local police officer and mentioned I had spent the day looking at Jeeps. He told me to go to his house the next day and schooled me in a 4x4 that would be far better at handling my abuse. A week later, I had a 1970 V8J40 cruiser. Since we women like accessorizing, I had to add a 78 FJ40 and a 69 FJ55 to go with. From there, it snowballed and I've since owned eight fj40s, four fj55s, and an fj60 in addition to my current stable of a 1962 fj40, two fj55s , an fj45 and two fzj80s. I love getting out of town. I'm just as comfortable wheeling Chinaman Gulch as I am a dirt road, as long as there's not a Starbucks or Applebees in sight. I'm also active in the Colorado Association of 4wd Clubs and am a lifetime member of Blue Ribbon Coalition and a Cohvco member because I believe we need to do all we can to keep our roads and trails open. Most of my rigs are long term projects, so I mostly wheel my 1996 fzj80, with 315/75r16s, 4.88 gears with arb lockers and well decked out for the comfort trip with a Maggiolina roof top tent, Arb fridge, ham radio and rear drawers packed with gear. On the milder trails and warm summer days, I like to take out my bone stock 1962 FJ40 and see how far up in altitude my little one barrel carb and 27" tires will take me.
