Hello OB!

My name is Steve (KG6ZJL) and I live in Concord, CA. I believe I met a few of the SF Bay members about a decade ago at a Dublin/Pleasanton meetup when I owned my last 4Runner. Times have changed and I am now back in the drivers seat of a '16 4Runner Trail. While I never stopped exploring, I am extremely excited to have an offroad-ready vehicle again. Co-piloting is my wife Brooke, and bringing up the rear is our 11mo son Wyatt. Our family loves the outdoors and can't wait for our next adventure!

Location: Concord, CA (SF Bay Area)
Experience: Advanced

Previous rig - 1988 4Runner - SOLD:
- Bored and Cam'd 22RE
- SAS'd on 35" BFG KM's

New rig - 2016 4Runner Trail:
- BFG KO2's (275/70r17)
- Gobi Stealth Rack Arriving Soon

20170420_170312.jpg Hello OB World, I just bought my rig this morning but, I have been following the site for awhile. I'm here in the Sacramento area and the spousal unit I are so happy to find a community like OB. We are also very happy now to get out of the Suburn family vehicle and into a dedicated rig. Hope to meet up with you all in the future.

I'm going to put new tires on tomorrow, then slowly grab parts like rear bumper setup, rack, winch, and rear drawer system home build. Can't wait to start the transformation.

Welcome! I grew up with an 86 Suburban. Love seeing them on the road.
I was going to keep transforming the sub into expo rig until I found out a 2002 1500 sub drive train would need lots of uprades. Being the family vehicle I couldn't risk it. Still love the thing though and it will still go camping when we are needing a giant wagon.

Me and my 1990 F350 are ready for the bumpy ride ahead. I have been exploring the local mountains and deserts on my own for a while and look forward to the support and fun of the OB family.
