We come down every June for the SVX/XT6 meet at Fontana Village. I'll try to give you some advance notice next year.

Awesome pictures! I really should be keeping a closer eye on this regional thread since I have been missing the newer posts. Just as an observation, I have noticed a major uptick in Baja's in my area. I dont mean repeatedly seeing the same two or three, I'm talking a lot of unique baja's suddenly popping out of the woodwork around here. May be people traveling to see the leaves change. The past few weeks I have seen 3 garnet red pearls, 1 garnet red with silver trim, 3 yellow, 2 black, 2 or 3 black and silver combos, 2 blue and 1 silver. There have been a couple for sale in the area as well.

A baja club would be awesome around here with so many running around, but would probably be fairly complicated to get the other owners attention. May work on starting one up in spring once weather has broke (expecting our first winter storm tomorrow night...sigh).

We have quite a few around here as well but to most people I meet they are just a car...

What tires did you decide on? They look awesome!

Quite a few people around here love Baja's.. but unfortunately they dont own them. I had countless people at work asking me about my truck when I first got it. I too have found that other owners just dont appreciate them as anything but a basic vehicle. It's sad.

I'll have to post pics, but I just installed sport activity lights on mine.

I'm in Wilmington NC and Monay we bought a 2003 Baja. Mileage is 145K. Great deal and after a total of 5 days we are now in love with it! I am looking for another to replace my 1999 Ranger. I love my Ranger, but love the Baja more.
Sh is silver in color with automatic tranny. Pulled to the loeft when we bought it but we eplaced the front tires yesterday and the pull is gone. Just bad (and mismatched) tires.

I am a past Brat owner. (Think it was a '82). I am looking, now, for my Baja. I figure if there is any place to find one that's been taken care of, it would be here. I am on the hunt for a Baja Turbo, Auto (Manual will work if all other requirements are there), Leather Seats, Color Preference: Two Tone Gray/Silver or Black/Silver. Will consider any color. Any year is acceptable. Any mileage considered. Looking for something less than $10,000. (Hoping less than $7,500) so high mileage is not an issue as long as it was well maintained during those miles.
Joined ScoobyTruck to, hopefully, find MY new Baja and use it to help me improve and customize what I find. I am located in Northeast Tennessee. Looking forward to a new ride.

Our 03 Baja with new 04 suspension front and back. The 04 suspension added just a bit of lift to it. BTW 241,000 miles on the 2.5 now.
