    I co-own a soon to open Play N Trade and we are allowed to spend aportion of our mandatory marketing budget on a wrapped vehicle. Well I was skirting back and forth between a tacoma and a tundra because of the rebates. However my dealer who agreed to give me invoice pricing on anything for bringing in other customers could never get a hold on what I wanted and I was about to lose the customer who was buying my 99 prerunner. So push came to shove and I chose the FJ since other Franchisees use them and they had a real nice black 4x4 offroad one in stock. I really miss having the truck but its hard to regret the decision because the FJ has to be the most fun I have ever had driving and that thing will go anywhere! Its in the shop right now getting its wrap put on so I'm suffering withdrawal symptoms having to drive around a rented sebring. I'll some pics up once it comes back.

    I don't blame you man. Those FJs are sweet. I would own one if I didn't want a truck.
