    Glad to see everything come back together for you!

    I'm jealous of your FZJ80...very sweet rigs. I used to have an FJ-40 and now have an FJ Cruiser. Would LOVE to get an 80 series...monstrous but oh so cool on the trails! Enjoy.

    I've been thinking about picking up a brace for some time, but simply haven't gotten around to it. But, your picture has now made it a top priority. For whatever reason, when I look at your head relative to your torso I'm struck with the revelation of how our necks and heads are just small "protrusions" relative to the rest of our body, and how easily an impact to our helmets can snap our neck like a twig.

    Thanks for your inspiriation!

    To help you along with the thought process:

    Make sure you go read the link below - I too was where you are and also wanted to get the brace, wanted it for this trip and just didn't get the funds scrapped up nor time to get it... or whatever the excuse was...
