    When I got my fj, I didn't really notice the blindspots. I got the little mirrors but hardly use them.

    It's too small for my needs (family) and I find myself needing a small bed a couple times a month... That's about the cusp of it... Back seat too small and rear cargo area is also pretty cramped

    Very good reasons. Do you feel any limitations with tire clearance in the front? I ask because I feel like if I bought an FJ, I would be better off gutting the suspension and doing SAS right off the bat.

    It took me several months to get these wheels. I ordered them 5 times and each time they would come back a day or 2 later and say, "toyota will not release them to you."

    I got a vin off ebay and sent it into a dealer on the east coast and they shipped them to me a few days later. They had requested an insurance claim form showing the loss, but i talked them out of it.

    btw, the wheels are freaking awesome. And the fitment is the best for running a 285/75/r16 on a taco with minimal trimming.

    I think youll find more clearance with the FJ than the Tacoma on the front... But if you want to SAS then go for it... Hell, I'll sell ya mine... Lol

    I still think the White TT FJ looks better

    Oh jeez, don't threaten me with a good time man. If I didn't have my hands full with two pick ups already I would take it from you.

    I picked up small round mirrors at my local Toyota dealer. I now have no blind spot at all!! FJ's are not for everyone! Thats the great thing about them. I'm glad that you don't see as many around like you do taco's! They are not a family vehicle! They are for wheeling, hunting etc! I love mine, but I am 43 years old and my kids are grown! I have time to be on the trail as much as I like!! :D
    Good luck!!
