Heck yeah, that's a beaut ;), you've had yours a bit longer than mine, and 152k miles that is awesome, mine just hit 250k a posted a pic of mine on pg66 (the one that has running lights on and led pods on the front,) but anyways your very lucky to have found such a beautiful truck,

I finally ended up getting mine done, I wouldn’t remove it, you really get that “fish in a fishbowl” kinda feeling when everyone can see your every move at night.

Yeah, mine has no tint so you do get that fishbowl feeling, even in the daytime you can... well everyone around you can see every move you make and you have my trucks twin, well one that looks alot better lol.
And also l wouldn't remove it, for a number of reasons, first there is no privacy whatsoever, and the sun will slowly but surely destroy the interior of the cruiser and if you have some tint people cant see if you have tools or recovery ropes, or anything else like that in the back, it's just that much better.

Yep, makes sense for saving the interior and some added security, though being in the middle of a city I don’t leave anything of value in in it.

You are right about it being a twin - wow

Ok... I was using the term twin very loosely I know his truck has a lift, aftermarket wheels and snorkel. But let me rephrase that, your truck is the same color as mine...

lol - I thought your twin comment was directed at me, my bad (now I see it wasn’t). Yours looks very similar to mine (stock look, same interior, same exterior)

Ok too many to quote here...

3 cheers for the brown/tan 3FE, badass! These are some great looking rigs gentlemen, glad they are in good hands ;)

Wow 91FJ80Super44 that interior is cherry! Thought mine was in great shape but that looks brand new.

No tint does look awesome but just not practical for me either. It gets 115 here sometimes in the summer and I like the privacy. I owe the tint to my interior condition too, though it is peeling off now so will eventually steam it off and re-tint

Thanks Mr. Ryan, I work very hard to keep the interior looking good. The gentleman I bought it from was a teacher at UT at Knoxville and he owned it for about 5 years but he never drove it, and he bought it from the original owner who drove it for 240k miles, I bought it at 244k, I've put 6k on her in 5 months:D, but I do daily the cruiser, these trucks are meant to be driven!!!
And I agree the tan and brown cruisers are bad a$$.

So honestly I don't know how the interior isn't sun faded from never having tint, but I plan to go and get her tinted next week. Does anyone have a recommendation for a good percentage tint, I want good visibility at night but dark enough to keep the interior protected.

Also anyone who would like to share some gas mileage figures that would be awesome, I'm trying to figure out if something is wrong with my cruiser or if it's normal, I'm getting 7 mpg on average but there is the occasional 6 mpg, on stock 31s!!!!... Needless to say my wallet is screaming for mercy...
Side note, I have heard of guys who bought them new saying that they got 13-14 mpg, is that even feasible??? I know these trucks aren't supposed to be fuel efficient, but less money on gas means more money for arb bumpers, rocksliders, better tires etc.
Thanks
