Hawaiian in Colorado

Sup everybody!! I've been in CO for 1 1/2 years now, and finally decided to pick up a 4x4 so i can plow through the snow and hit up some trails. I just got me a '86 turbo 4runner that already had a 2" body and 4" suspension lift with 33" dunlop tires, and i've been itchin to take it up to the mountains to see what it can do. I was born and raised in Hawaii, so im not used to any trails out here. Im down to hit up any trails with any other newbies or older members. Im in Lakewood, right off 6th ave, so if anyone sees a pretty beat lifted 4runner cruising down wads, throw me a honk!!

Aloha,
Matt

'86 4runner SR5 Turbo / 6" lift/ 33" dunlops / work in progress!!!!

no problem. we'd love to share our culture with people who want to know. not to mention the laid back lifestyle. kick back grab some beers and share stories. hopefully we'll see you folks on some runs.
