Hello folks - I hope I have the right spot for this post.
My wife and I are considering two FJ's:
(1) Price negotiated to $24,500. Is this one of the NSSE FJ's? I see the roof is painted the same color as the body, I love the look but didn't know if it signified something else.
(2) Price negotiated to $22,500. At first I wasn't going to consider this FJ, however when I found out about the A-TRAC mod it quickly went to the top of my list
What I am looking for in an FJ:
2010+ (stronger engine, boxed frame as I understand it as well)
Manual (I have a 2008 Tacoma with the 6spd, I love it)
Locking rear differential
-Other options such as the power plug, sub woofer, backup camera and so on are nice, but not necessary.
I don't care about the color.
**Is there anything we need to look for in these vehicles when I do a test drive? I know earlier models had problems with the inner fender walls, I understand this problem was resolved pre 2010.
I intend to install an OME and LR UCA's, with either 33" or 34" tires. Aluminum skid plates (All-Pro comes to mind), sliders, lower links will be in the near future as well, and possibly bumpers at some point further down the road.
Thank you for looking and any insight you might have.
