    My old rig was an 07 FJ but a couple months ago I traded it in on a Tacoma. The Taco is going to be a little more challenging to mount a radio in. It's got a sunroof that's probably going to keep me from drilling the roof for an NMO mount. The FJ was easy as could be really. You'll find some pics of my radio install in my profile I think.

    You should write it up. FJs are good rigs.

    86 FJ60 - It's set up as an expedition vehicle rather than a rock crawler. I'll take some photos and upload them.

    Hello, I'm new to the forum and also new to HAM radio even though I've been licensed for over a decade.

    I have a stock 2015 Toyota Tacoma TRD offroad. Mounted in the dash cubby, above the cupholders, is a 2M Kenwood TM-281A. My antenna is mounted on the driver's side rear corner of the bed. This is the mount: http://www.bayareametalfab.com/2nd-G...ount_p_16.html I drilled it out and used an NMO with a Larsen NMO2/70. I would like to try the antenna mounted near the hood lip sometime to see if that nets any advantages. (I don't want to mount it to the roof due to low branches and also canoe/kayak clearance issues.)

    I'm strongly considering moving up to a dual band radio with APRS capabilities. Maybe a Yaesu FTM-400 or Kenwood TM-D710.

    I look forward to seeing everyone's setups and learning more.

    Hi, I'm a newbie here.

    Been licensed since 1972, got my FJ40 in 1968, and they have been married together for 49 years now. From Southern California, Orange, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and Ventura Counties. Now down in flat land Florida. Do wheeling in a few surrounding states that have something higher that a 50 foot hill.
    Have had many different rigs in the FJ40, from Heathkits with the warm ultra violet glow, now up to an Icom 7100 with SGC tuner, and Yaesu FTM-400XDR.
    The FJ40 is somewhat stock, with a 1989 F2 engine upgraded to multi-port fuel injection. Stock running gear with the addition of a Toy Box Xfer case.
    I like Geocaching also as it fits with the idea of getting out into the back country and exploring.

    I support the local County as an Emergency Coordinator for ARES, working with Emergency Management. Previous call WA6QFC, now in Florida K4NEA.

    Like to take the 40 anywhere it will go, and ham it up from the mobile and home.

    Jerry D.
