Just actually moved from there, but only to Urbandale. Definitely a few places around here to go wheeling I would say your best bet for a guide if you go to MIOBI would definitely be @krenaud33 . Anyways welcome to the group and if you have any questions just let us know!

Unfortunately it will probably be a few months before I head down to MIOBI again. I usually try and post up on a couple forums when I go so if anyone in the Toyota world is interested they can join.

Get your questions answered? Ankeny is a good place to live. I don't live there but I don't make 1-2 trips up there a week. Good gyms might be Planet Fitness, Farrel Extreme body shaping are popular, Aspen athletic clubs are popular, and YMCA's. Hope that helps somewhat.

I do have a rental house on the southside of Des Moines that is currently available.

Sure. Guys on tacoma world have had some that some of us have attended. Seems to be more action over there and it doesn't matter to me that most drive Tacoma's. There a couple iowa threads over there.

I looked into miobi..don't know if my rig would do very well out there. Is it a lot of hard wheeling or some mellow trails?

Hey all, new to this board! From Louisiana, but now live in Des Moines in the Beaverdale area. Any recommendations on where to take my ole gal in to get serviced? I don't have a trusted mechanic in town yet.

Look forward to meeting some of you in the future!

Man I really need to subscribe to this thread as I don't get notifications on this thread.
And yeah if you saw the modded blue 4th gen with bumper and rack on bronze wheels it was defintiely me.

As for a trusted mechanic, I actually just referred another members daugther to my most honest one. Livingstons Automotive over on the southside. While it isn't fancy and shiny like the dealership they only replace whats needed and replace and quote with the parts they actually use. Dennis Livingston or Denny is the one who owns and runs it and also answers the phone. Great guy and have known him since before I could drive and my parents have been taking all of their vehicle to him for over 30 years now.

Thanks! Sounds great. Looks like we might have a small little group going here now

I'll give Livingstons a ring. Who should I tell him referred me?

I need advice on rust/corrosion prevention for underneath as well. Rust and salted streets are a whole new world for me. I'm avoiding driving it on salted roads and when I did drive it I washed it pretty much immediately after...but I want to do my best to stop what's currently there from getting any worse.
