Exhaust on. It sound pretty good. Well it sounds like a Tacoma. I'll get a video going this weekend.

Have you taken it off road yet?
Yeah I call it turd too. The most offroading I have done was a small hill climb. Nothing big yet. I don't want to smash the rocker panels in like I did on the Ranger.

Yeah we drove through there and my buddy was telling me that you can't. Kinda dumb since 48 other states let you do it. I know there is another state that won't let you either.

Yup....it's really freakin' gay. I love getting yelled at and threatened with $4000 tickets if I get caught pumping my own gas!! lol. I always pump my chevy myself though.

Yup....no gas pumping yourself. Unless commercial vehicle/commercial fuel card/or motorcycle or exotic specialty cars, like my chevy and maybe vettes and stuff are exempt. Otherwise, no pumpy. I love filling in Wa. Kicks ***.

Not being able to pump your own gas sucks badly. Commercial accounts, motorcycles etc get away with it.
In same ways it is good. Lots of low functioning people with no other job skills have jobs (haha).
Problem is they are all paid minimum wage and most are lazy as *****. It is not uncommon to sit for 5 minutes waiting for the guy to stop smoking or BSing with someone else to slowly meander over to help. If I see they are being lazy I just pump it myself. When they yell at me I tell them that they should have been paying attention and doing their job so I didn't have to. Usually it pisses them off but they leave me alone.

LOL. The funniest part was when we had to stop for gas in Oregon it was raining. The guy still washed the windshield even though after he mad a pass the rain would cover everything.

Some station owners require that the attendants wash every windshield no matter what.
Most of them still don't do it. When they do I usually throw them a buck or two, though I usually don't like them touching my truck.

I think it's more like Tacomas don't really sound good with any exhaust. They have a sound to them that makes you say that is a Tacoma. All well. I'm happy with it.

Haha. My cousin has one of the trail team FJs and I went with him on one of the events last year. Good time for sure, some of those guys will wheel the heck out of their new rigs.
