    Army Green is the best color ever... :laugh:

    that sticker price is ridiculous though. TT's are sweet...but is that a 6k mark up from a regular all terrain package 4x fj?

    So here's the deal so far... The sticker on the FJ is $35,767. They are coming down to $$35,000 on the FJ and offering me $17,500 trade for my 06 trd off road access cab 4x4 w/35,000 miles on the clock. What do you guys think???

    A $36,000 2011 anything should be less than $700 under sticker in Sept of 2011. That's less than 2% under sticker. 2012s will be here before you know it.

    Figure out where you want to be, and be prepared to give in a bit. Offer to sign the papers today at $33,500 plus your $18,500 trade-in and see what he says. You should be able to end up under $34K easily.

    Also, remember you're in the power position. You have a nice reliable truck - HE needs the sale. It'd be different if you limped in on 3 wheels and were begging for financing.

    I'm still on the fence about this. I'm afraid I'll miss having a bed to throw stuff in.(like a ladder)

    Get a roof rack. Bajarack's utility rack is a good option

    You should totally do this. I swapped my '10 Tacoma with my dad's '08 Tacoma and then traded the '08 in for a 2011 new Trails Teams FJ. The army green and the black TRD wheels, factory sliders, and roof rack were all just too badass to deny. BTW they wanted 37,000 for this FJ. I talked them down to 33,500 and they gave me 16,000 trade in for the '08 Tacoma Prerunner with 56,000 miles on it (had been wrecked once and had the hood and front bumper replaced).

    i was seriously considering an FJ until i discovered the Taco, i was instantly sold, dont think i could stand to daily drive an FJ but would love to have one for a toy to mod the piss out of.
