    Hands down the FJ if i didnt have a taco i would definately get an FJ, The suspension is nice on the fj i just think you can do alot more especially me i would take it on endless trails.
    Tundra does look bad ass.

    That is a tough decision. They both look badass! I would take the FJ, but I would miss the utility of the truck.

    The FJ. I've been a fan of FJ's for a long time. As a matter of fact, the day I bought my Tacoma I tried to talk the salesman into selling me the '79 FJ they had on the floor as well.

    FJ - The tundra looks cool, but the FJ is much more capable. Besides, what's the point of having a truck bed if you need a forklift to get into it...

    The FJ is going to be much more fun in the long run (probably more useful too).

    I did it again. Got tired of paying truck payments and gas and traded in for a 2015 Honda Accord Sport since I enjoyed my 2013 Sport so much.
    I'd probably jump into a Tundra.

    Dude those are bad choices. You know how much gas costs nowadays? Get a Yaris with a locking diff if you wanna off road.

    FJ Cruiser 4x4.

    I don't need a truck as large as the Tundra. Especially sense I am into Off Roading the smaller size of the FJ is much more convenient for me. I also much prefer the interior layout of the FJ. Of course gas is also a factor.
