I'm sure I'll have a lift with new wheels/tires on within a month or two. I can't wait to mod this thing
Great deal! Congratz

reading someone say that the 4runner was getting discontinued was the biggest laugh of the day. someone would have to be high as a kite to kill off the 4runner. the fj, yeah i can see that, its a niche vehicle. the 4runner is iconic, and dominates a very large portion in marke share for suvs. other manufactures, model their suvs after the 4runner, thats how influential it is.

You're gonna like having a 4x4 much better in my opinion. One thing I really love on the FJ is the Manual 4x4 Shifting - NO KNOBS to engage 4x4 - old school.

Post some pics when you get a chance.

I just traded my 08 FJ in last year for my Tacoma. I miss it but don't regret it!! Offroading in the FJ was very different, nice short wheel base and it definitely has torque. Have to admit, being able to sleep in the back of your truck is pretty sweet though

I have a couple of friends in our 4x4 group that have them. Off road very capable, and nice for the two in front. I have spent many hours in both front and backseat on some of our road trips and the backseat sucks, getting in/out banged my head way to many times, and I have a hard time getting my feet out the door. Visibility was another issue, but you learn your vehicle and use the mirros and such and you will be fine.
But while I was waiting on my truck to get serviced last time, they one sitting on the showroom floor. It sure was nice..

For two people think they are pretty nice, and actually more room than a jeep.

Heck, both the truck and the FJ are nice rigs, and if you want one, go for it

I really liked the idea of having an fj but when I saw the mpg reports I wept. Not that a lifted Tacoma with armor is that much better but still. When they are armored and lifted they become toyotas most bad ass vehicle

Our Fj's at work suck. They get terrible gas mileage, small ass gas tank. They both have a crazy death wobble that the dealership cannot figure out after 3 years. The blind spots in them are miserable, and the stupid design of a windshield is yeah..

I vote no

I noticed this on visit to the dealership the other day. Jealous.

I want that and the inclinometer out of the FJ.
Keep the rest though Id also rather go with a 4 runner.
