    Well here's my dilemma. Was out riding my bike yesterday and happened to drive past the Toyota dealer. So naturally i stopped in to see what they had.(hoping for a 2012 Taco.) Thats when my problems started! I seen they had a White FJ. I like FJ's so i walked over and gave it a quick look. I thought it's nice , but not something i would be interested in.(talking to myself):D So i strolled(pimp walked) :laughing: over towards the tacoma's! Thats when i saw it. Sitting there in the grass. Almost invisible with it's army green color! A ARMY GREEN TT FJ! OH i was drooling instantly. I had to check it out. So i skipped to my loo on over there to get some slobber on it! Well long story short... I drove it and loved it! Now i'm seriously thinking of trading my Tacoma for it. If they give me enough trade in of course. This thing is BA! It has offroad lights on the front, rock rails, roof rack, jbl stereo, DUal vvti 4.0 liter, and the black TT wheel's with BFG A/T's! It ride's so smooth compared to the Taco. I was impressed! Now do i really wanna go in debt for another vehicle???
    My Tacoma only has 35,000 miles on it and i know it would last me a very long time. Anyways... i'm going friday to try and wheel and deal with the Stealership. The Sticker on the FJ is 35,767$$$$!!!! If they give me an offer i can't refuse. Then i might be another FJ guy on TW! :woot:

    Sweet man. FJs are badass and I would honestly prefer one over my Taco.

    As long as it can pull a trailer for my bike or quad. I can go without the Taco.
    Anybody know if they are capable of towing small stuff. I have a 500lb quad and a 325lb bike that i occasionally have to tow on a 5x8 utility trailer. Not at the same time though.

    Oh I know why. All Toyota does is paint the TRD package green and call it the TT package. Honestly kind of disappointing. I thought TT meant twin turbo.

    That's the one! All green with the black wheels. Not the street lock ones but the six spoke deals like I got on my Tacoma. It also has the offroad lights, sliders, a bug deflector. The jbl sounded pretty good too! I'm going tomorrow to try and see how bad they wanna sell it! :D
