X2. A few years ago I was contemplating trading my '07 T4R for an FJ...until I drove one. I was quite surprised at how different they drove from the T4R since their drivetrains are quite similar. The reduced visibility was also a big issue for me...couldn't deal with all of the blind spots. I know it's not an issue for everyone but it was for me. Good luck...it's a sharp ride.
