    1) How does $27k sound for an 08 TTSE with 5,900 miles? the only thing it does not have that I want is back-up camera
    2) what are largest tires stcok/OEM suspension can handle?

    That sounds like a good deal and only 5,900 miles!? I've got 265/70/17's and no where close to rubbing I know with the spacer up front to level it you could go 33's.The spacers (alum blocks) cost less than 100bucks needs lined up after but with new tires anyway going to have it done probably anyway.

    at the mercy of truckingco. paid $1100 for enclosed coast to coast so can't complain too loudly

    the FJ does not have factory racks and do know it will fit in my garage with them (tested another). i wonder if i will ever use them or is it just looks? put a few on ebay on watch
