Thanks

I Have the 6MT. The clutches are an issue for towing, you can search fj clutch issues. Mine is starting to chatter/slip a bit. Not sure how old it is tho. Gas mileage is awful! Larger tires will get you 10-12mpg around time. Its cool to shift and i get oohs and ahhs every where i go, but i have to pay the gas bill. I would go Auto if i could do it again. And ive shifted for 30 years now. If you tow, you canwatch the fuel gauge drop like a watches second hand. Not kidding. Get a 4 runner with a V8. More comfortable too.

What a crock of crap . The taco and FJ are the same vehicle in a different shape .

not really, the fj has a better transfer case. some taco guys do fj tranfercase swaps. its also more maneuverable on trails and better flex and ride with coil spring rear suspension. both trucks are great but the facts are what they are there not as the same as people like to think. i have had both. and i loved both trucks. if u looking for more offroad and dont need a bed fj is way to go. however if u need a bed a tacoma is obviously great truck and does well offroad and u get the bed. so its really what u need.

That's a good place for it! The Mall, what a joke! "Bitches" what are you 15 years old! Come on, it's time to grow up! I'm not on this forum very often & now I know why! The forum that I'm on most of the time are great people! You would never read something so stupid there!
