2008 Trail Team Special Edition FJ Cruiser

In 2007 it was the all black Special Edition was a TRD FJ Cruiser and in 2008 it's the all white Trail Team FJ Cruiser. There are only 3200 of these Special Edition made each year and seem to hold their resale value well:

Quote:
WHAT MAKES THE TRAIL TEAMS SPECIAL EDITION FJ CRUISER SPECIAL? PLENTY!

"For starters, the standard FJ Cruiser's already impressive off-road performance is enhanced by trail tuned Bilstein shock absorbers; BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires mounted on TRD 16" aluminum alloy wheels with matt black powder-coated finish; Active Traction Control; locking rear diff; a TRD exhaust system, plus a Cyclone Air Cleaner under the hood.

The bold contrast between the all-white body color and the black wheels, bumpers, grille surround and exterior mirror housings make this FJ Cruiser stand out from the crowd. Trail Team badges, bumper mounted FJ auxiliary light, a five piece set of all-weather mats and cargo mat with logos, and color matched door trims and instrument panel complete its dramatic appearance.

Add a leather-trimmed steering whell, a nine speaker audio system with AM/FM 6 disc in-dash CD and MP3 capability, floating ball-type multi-informational display, shift knob and a convenience package that includes remote keyless entry, cruiser control, power outside mirrors with markers, rear privacy glass, rear wiper and rear parking sonar, and the Trail Teams Special Edition offers excellent value and authentic FJ Cruiser capability.

The Trail Tems Special Edition FJ Cruiser is set to hit dealers in January 2008, but with only 3200 being built".

Well if they are like this year's TRD wheels and other Special Edition specific items, you can only get them IF you have a Special Edition VIN to order with.

Amen! I love my black truck but if you want to keep it looking clean and scratch free its a constant battle. That white FJ looks amazing and would be easy to keep looking good

The manual transmission ones are a full time 4WD.

Locking rear diff or not has nothing to do with full time or part time 4WD because it was designed to be used in 4Lo not 4Hi.
