    Jonny, did you chop your exhaust off right after it comes over that cross member? Have any issues with rattling or fumes?

    I have a friend who's a salesmen, he spoke with his team about selling my FJ (just out of curiousity).

    They would give me $22,800 if they bought it straight up. Or $24,500 if I consigned it on their lot until it sold. :eek:

    My FJ is an 08 with locker and A-trac. Factory roof rack, brush guard and sliders. (Those should add some value since they're toyota parts I would think) and then its 3" lifted with nicer wheels and tires (not really worth much money but they are there). And the rig is just about to turn over 38K miles. I'll hold onto it, thank you.

    Yeah unfortunately the FJs dont hold their value as well as the tacomas. Well, depending on your point of view. I plan to keep mine for a long time and that lower price is why i went FJ and didn't get a 4x4 DC taco. The prices on the tacos were retarded. I didnt want to spend more than 21k and really wanted the locker and 4x4. to get a DC taco with those options in my price range i would have had to settle for one that was completely trashed or high miles. So, i opted for the FJ instead.
