I know this has been touched on in a few threads, but those of you who have actually sat in an FJC, what other known truck would the FJC's front seat interior size be most comparable to? (Leg room, head room, shoulder room, steering wheel location, etc.) 4-Runner? FJ80? Grand Cherokee? Durango? GM Trailblazer/Envoy?

I'm 6 foot 4, 245 pounds. Am I going to fit in this and still be comfortable? Any other big guys planning on buying one? :confused:

The closest comparable seating will be the Tacoma extra-cab (with similar suicide swing out doors). You can get a good idea of seating position and ergonomics from this package as well as the 4Runner.

Six ten?? How the heck do you fit in an FJ40?? :confused:

More importantly, how do you keep from being blown away by a stiff breeze at 235? :D

Thanks, FirstToy. That gives me a pretty good idea of the size. But, I guess I'm gonna have to try one on first before I get too excited about buying one.

here's treeroot in one. he's on the small side of average male size.

bill burke is a bit taller i think and lanky...he had the seat all the way back and said it took some getting used to, but he liked it. he even said if toyota gave him a few, he'd get rid of all his rovers.

I'm 6'4" and didn't think it was that bad, there was more room than appears in it. The front was ok, the rear I didn't even attempt! lol


How do you think it will roll? :D
