What year is the Cruiser? I would love to find one of the older Diesel FJ pick ups.
The cruiser is a 1997 - the last year of the solid axles all around and the front, center and rear locking differential option. It is a joy to own and drive - not so much to gas
. But whatever it beats a car payment. Those BJ45s are awesome trucks.

Warren Sr - Thank you for taking an interest as well - I will definitely get the route over to you as soon as I am done. I am the bald younger guy that usually has a bit too much fun with Jr. and Doug at the Cat Herders Campouts
Route in general is pretty much done from Front Royal to Damascus with a connector at the end to the BRP. It has come together pretty well thus far. I am extremely confident it will be a free of gates or other inconveniences if run between May 1 - October 1 without a torrential downpour.
But I will prove it on the ground before mass distro. It will have a couple of different options - some geared toward the serious off road folks and the casual riders. Also will have a western route and an eastern route the runs the area around Pedlar Reservoir and Shoe Creek. As it stands right I just need to spend a few hours copying over the exact GPS tracks provided by the forest service to ensure no surprises when on forest roads. Also I need to get the single track around Damascus / Mt. Roger's ironed out.
Basically if you are on scenic secondary roads you will see things like this:
And if you are on Forest Roads things like this:
