    Ever since i had a bad experience when I was looking at the tacoma back in late sept and oct... I have been considering FJ Cruiser

    I like the Special Edition Trail Teams that they are making only 3200
    but i also love how the tacoma looks on the road!! They are bad ass!!

    I like the FJ cruiser 100% made in japan.

    It seems like the FJ crusier has lesser problems then a tacoma!
    FJ Crusier has a better off-rd capability than a Tacoma
    but the tacoma rocks the way it looks!!

    I guess when january rolls around... I'll see if they are willing to deal with Special Edition FJ... then I'll get tacoma...
    the Black rims on the FJ is SO SO HOT!!!

    if the black gun metal rims on the Tacoma with Radiant Red... I'll be all over it like flies on Sh*t!!! HAHA

    It comes down to if you need the pickup bed or not. I personally like the Taco better. :D

    FJ's look like a cheap piece of junk.

    I'd get a PT before an FJ.

    FJ's look cheap on the inside. I love my Taco and wouldn't dream of an FJ.

    I like the FJ, it looks cool. But when I drove it I was hating the rear view, where the hell was the guys head who made that frickin back window? :confused:

    ^Yup.

    FJ's are cool but have you (OP) driven one? I had a totally different opinion and that completely turned me towards the Tacoma instead. Your homework assignment is to go drive one and turn in a report to us.

    HomerJ and the Dog have pretty much sumed it up. I love the looks of both of them, I feel that the badge clears the way for dependability. A friend of mine at work traded his 04 TRD 4 door for an FJ and never looked back-loves it. According to my friend we both get about the same gas milage, his family all sits comfortably in it, as does my family in my 4 door SR5, but when it comes to firewood, dirt, dirtbikes, whatever I just toss it in the back and screw, he must barrow a trailer.
