• TIME: Noon till we’re done
• Where: Bridger Bowl Ski Mountain Lower Parking Lot (LINK)
• What: Members Only Cookout, bring the whole Family!
• Why: Fun/Adventure, Community and Land Cruisers!

What’s the big deal with this one?
• We want to gather all the 406 Cruisers members for our annual Cookout. This is an awesome chance to get to know folks, swap stories, exchange parts, and hang out around some of the best Cruisers in the last best place.
• It is on a Saturday so we can hang and let the kids run around!
• It is in an AWESOME location this year.
• Eat some good food together!
We want to THANK Stephen and Darren for their awesome service to the Club for over 6 years!
• We want to take ideas for upcoming meeting Topics and Venues.

YOU CAN BE A PART OF THE BIGGEST GIVE-A-WAY of the year. We are giving away a TON of gear, TONS! Were giving away:
o Extreme Air Portable Air Compressor
o Recovery Gear
o Max Traxx Mounts
o Front Runner Storage Box
o RAM mounts
o Fire Extinguisher
o LED lights from KC
o First Aid Kits
o Front Runner Jerry Can
o 406 Cruiser Swag
o A FREE 200 Series Land Cruiser! (Kidding just making sure you are still reading).
o And we are still working on more!

We want to cover some important voting issues, this is our best chance to have members make changes to the Club. We want to vote on the following:
o We want to change our Bylaws to allow us to vote no matter how many people show up for any meeting. Majority of those who are present win, pretty simple but it will help us move along some changes we want to make. It is our hope to present what is being voted on in advance so people have time to process and voice concerns before our meetings. This should speed up adding new people onto the board of directors and other voting issues. For example, if 20 people show… 11 votes is all it takes to pass a proposal.
o We would like to adjust how we accept members into the Club. What should club requirements be? Who should or shouldn’t be allowed to join? Should we have a Club sponsor for new members etc.
o We’d like to accept nominations for a few positions… Land Use Coordinator, Social Media Guru, a new Secretary for the Club etc.
o We want some feedback on how things have been so far this year 2021… we want to hear from YOU!

Bring your favorite Toyota, your family and some camp chairs… we’ll take care of the rest! This is the ONE meeting you don’t want to miss.

Maybe the adventurous can run back to Bozeman over Flathead pass when we’re done.

  • Heads up... FREE car washes Bozeman
    by [email protected] (REZARF) on October 25, 2021 at 8:46 pm

    The new car wash right next to the Rib and Chop house on 19th and the frontage road (near Costco) is giving any one their free Premium car wash ($24 value) for the next week or so. One wash per day. Their vacuums and air blow out hoses are free too. Just thought I'd pass the deal along. I have gone through 2 times already trying to wash the overspray from the detailing demo off my wife's sequoia! Not a bad deal during hunting season, or to wash that nasty Cruiser you've been neglecting.

  • Washer Mod Help Needed
    by [email protected] (AirheadNut) on October 25, 2021 at 5:17 pm

    Hi all! Looking for some assistance/advice for doing the washer mod on the rear axle of my LJ78 Prado to correct the pinion angle. My rear driveshaft angles are out of whack after an engine swap, transmission modification and lift and are causing bad vibrations and eating the rearmost u-joint. If anyone has done this modification for caster correction and would be willing to lend a hand or give some useful tips on how to go about it that would be fantastic!

  • What have you been doing with your Toyota?
    by [email protected] (JohnnyOshow22) on October 22, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    In the 80 Tech Forum there is a "What did you do with your 80 this weekend" thread. In that thread 80 owners post what they've been doing with their rigs. This include mods, engine swaps, wheeling trips, just posting a photo of it in the driveway and saying, "I looked at it" or "did an oil change" and things related to anything 80 series. I think it would be cool to see what local club members are currently doing with their rigs/adventures/toyota related things and thats why I'm starting... Read more
