    Looks pretty good but I would take most of those billet pieces off and get some new wheels, tires, and armor - bumpers, skids, sliders, etc.

    I'm not too sure if I like the door handle. Imagine if you're picking someone up and that person has to come up to your door and pull your handle to open his/her door.

    I think it looks cool and is unique. I'd be happy with either the FJ or 4Runner......so I probably wouldn't buy this.

    I would love to roll into the service dept with it while they looked at it with a confused look on their face.

    Maybe. It's definitely better looking than the current FJ, but I would ditch the billet, the wheels, and that door handle is retarded. Cool idea though, it is just a show car afterall

    I cannot see the picture, work must be blocking it.

    If it looks like the orange, 4-door, FJ, I have seen then I would buy it. I am looking for a 2010 4Runner Trail Edition. I just wish it had the FJ round headlights and retro looking grille.


    Part 2 -

    I got home to see it. No Sir, I don't like this one. There are other ones around that look much better.

    I think it looks pretty good minus all the billet stuff and put some 17's on there instead. The door handle was a terrible idea, but it does kinda make itlook cleaner without the handle on the rear door. They should have at least had it open like a suicide door that way you didn't have to walk to thr front door to pull the handle then to the back to open the door.

    I like it so much more than the current FJ (not a fan of the styling), and it is on par with the looks of the current 4Runner, loose those terrible wheels, but otherwise it looks pretty nice.
