I'd like to introduce myself real quick before we get going. My name is Tanner, born and raised in colorful Colorado. My rig got her name because of the stellar condition I received her in, plus my first beer was a Stella, which I had on a family trip, in the runner, so it kinda just fit perfectly. Stella was originally purchased my my mom, brand new, in late 2000. I purchased the truck from my mom after I blew the motor in my first rig, 1992 Toyota Pickup, mid 2010. Over the last (almost) 6 years she has definitely gone through a ton of changes, but enough background, lets get to pictures of our adventures and parts!

Here is my most current, and favorite shot, fully outfitted, taken by a very talented friend of mine. Late afternoon/evening snow run up Yankee Hill on 1/31/16 after the Colorado FJ Cruisers meet and greet.

Welcome to the forum. Awesome rig. Looking forward to seeing more of the build, and the adventures you take in Colorado. I'd live in Colorado in a heartbeat if I could.

@Byron Eby There are quite a few companies that do produce them. Not really my style, so I don't remember who exactly makes them. I'm going to build a full length rack this summer and then get something up there. Honestly, my 20" bar on the bumper is more than enough for most situations.
