A Little About Myself
Jay and Sandra

I live in Gilbert, Arizona, in the Phoenix metro area. I've been happily married to my wife, Sandra, for about 17 years. My day job involves doing failure analysis on automotive integrated circuits. I also do some freelance 4x4 work, having had articles appear in Four Wheeler, 4WD & Sport Utility, and Off-Road, as well as a number of association publications.

Off-Road Experience & My Vehicle
ROKTOY - Predator Trail

My main interest is fourwheeling, rock crawling specifically. Here in the desert Southwest there are plenty of diverse trails for such activity. I try to do many of the local Arizona trails, as well as get out to places such as Rubicon, Moab, Las Cruces, etc., on occasion. Sandra and I have owned a half dozen or so 4WD vehicles over the years. Sandra currently drives a '91 4Runner that we use as a daily driver and camping vehicle, and I have a '91 Chevy Z71.

My trail truck until recently was a 1985 Toyota Xtra Cab truck I bought new in August 1985 (just before the IFS ones starting arriving). I am currently building a new tubular rig....hope to be done by end of summer.

You'll find info on a lot of my modifications on my home page. I look forward to exchanging knowledge with other Toyota enthusiasts.
