Thinking about getting a FJ

Went yesterday and test drove two FJ's...One with TRD the other without. Man those are pretty sweet SUV's....anybody have any feedback good or bad? They both drove well and had great pickup.
The dealer offered to buy my 1st gen. Taco for his son, according to him they don't last long on the lot.

I traded my 06 Prerunner for a 2011 FJ in March. Since I never used the truck for a truck it made more sence to have the lockable storage. Out of the last 3 NEW trucks (2 Toyota, 1 Chevy) I've purchased this is the only one that continues puts a smile on my face every morning.

It's smooth, quiet, goes places on car tires it has no business being and gets 2mpg better than my Prerunner did.....

I have a modded 07 taco and the gf has a modded 2010 FJ and I always go for the FJ keys. Rides nice, looks good, more capable. I like it so much that I'm thinking about selling the taco and getting the FJ's bigger brother, 4runner trail

I was in the same boat... wait til you get that shell, it's the best of both worlds! You get dry, lockable storage with the pick-up bed option when you need it

What are they offering you for your truck? Don't let this guy rip you off, you have a truck that is worth more than book value.

I bought my 10 Taco last yr and I was between it and an FJ. Since then I moved and have 2 dogs. I kinda regret the taco now. I cant keep anything in the back where I live now, and I travel a lot the dogs take up the back seat, its just kind of a pain. Im really considering a trade now. I dont really remember why I went with the Taco either. I bike a lot too and they make a rack for the spare tire, which is nice cuz I can still use the hitch and not take the front tires off and still have the space in the back.

Ride is great and quality is top notch. There are some inner fender issues on the early one but I think Toyota may have fixed it.

Had an FJ loved it!!!!

Traded the FJ for a 20104Runner Trail Edition... Love that more!!!

Essentially the same beast except the FJ is built off of the Prado 150's 2 door frame and the 4Runner is built off of the Prado 150's 4 door frame. Same engine and trans as far as I know.
