Newbie from Sarawak
« on: November 21, 2014, 02:13:58 AM »
Hi Everyone,

I'm a newbie from Miri. Bought my BJ40 about 2 years ago. New to off-road and 4x4. Restoration ongoing. Hoping to make some new friends and get few pointers to improve my ride.

Also looking for weatherstrip desperately as my braincells and lungs are getting destroyed from the exhaust fumes inside the cabin.

Cheers and have a nice day...
Aaron :bottom

Welcome matte40.

You've come to the right place but most of the members here are staying in the peninsular.

There's a wealth of information in the 4x4 technical sections and also some trip reports for your reading pleasure.

The forum has been rather quite lately as a lot of them have progressed to other social media platforms but they do come back from time to time to check and post.

Ok thanks keewes. I was aware that this forum covers mostly the peninsular  :thumbs_up. I'm planning to relocate to KL next year but unfortunately will be leaving the BJ behind. Hehe.

Yes both the technical sections and trip reports would be helpful and interesting. Looking forward to browse. :)
