    Didn't realize this was the FJ forum...No it's not the same. The FJ is a manual transfer case. The 4runner however, is the same.

    Yea I'd realize that I probably may never need it but just having 4x4 gives the peace of mind. Not only that but it gives me an excuse to venture out further and take it places where I couldn't go before. I know I'll want to find a place where I can take it to the sand dunes, etc...

    Im thinking 4x4 equates to Fun! :D

    My personal opinion is 4x4 if you can get it. It's only about a mile per gallon less fuel economy and 4x4 have better resale value (at least they do here in Louisiana).
