    Hi Everyone! I am looking at buying an automatic, 4wd, crew/double cab Tacoma. I am also interested in an FJ. Any opinions are welcome on helping me make a decision. I love the look of the FJ and Tacoma, but I am thinking the Tacoma might be more useful in everyday life. I don't have kids, so that isn't an issue. I don't plan on off roading too heavy, but I do want something that can take on deep snow. Just to start it off.... What is your favorite 2011 Tacoma color?

    I say stick with Black or White. and get the taco! what do you expect us to say.

    I ask you what does the FJ have or what can it do that a Taco cant?? In the end get the one you think will make you happiest.

    White! I love my double cab because it gives me the ability to hold 4 adults in comfort and I have the use of the pickup bed. The FJ was just too small for my needs. I like having the full 4 doors.

    SUPER WHITE!!!!! and double cab is great! the biggest mid size truck out there. I would sug the long bed. It holds a lot alot more than the short bed one. But sometimes i wish i had the short bed cuz the long bed is a bit big in tight spaces.
