Traded the FJ in for a Tacoma today!

Greetings! I am a so cal native living in menifee. Just traded in my 07 FJ for an 09 Tacoma DC 4x4 TRD today! I loved my FJ and did some great wheeling with it, but between my FJ and my chevy 2500hd I was dying from the gas bills. My FJ had a 3" OME lift with all pro rear coils, outdoor logics front bumper with the 3 hoops and a few other small accessories. So I traded her in along with the chevy, for a all-around vehicle for light wheeling and hauling sh!t. I am looking forward to get back into the modding shortly!

The Tacoma can be a gas hog to, but as long as you drive responsible and take account for the added weight of some mods, it should treat you well

And welcome

Yeah for sure, I've known that about tacomas, Im going to be a little more modest with the mods this go around based in that but still pumped to be back in a tacoma

Everyone here complains about the 4.0 fuel econ, but I think I get pretty good economy considering I have a lift. The other day I averaged 24mpg putting down the road doing about 50 (speed limit) Just be conscious of your speed and you will be fine.

You definitely learn how to have control with the gas pedal when driving an FJ since it is about as aerodynamic as a cinder block... But once you realize you won't haul ass everywhere, the mpg wasn't too terrible
