I have 97 and it is black. Are you sure you want black?
I know it is nice when the truck is just waxed, clean and detailed. But I know the black also shows lots of swirl marks, dirts, and etc....
My favorite preference is white.
Any thoughts? :flipoff2:

Ever tried Zaino's Bros? By far the best for black and great for any color. No more swirl marks. http://www.zainostore.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc This stuff is worth every penny.

Well , for starters mine is not a 1990 it's a 1991 , i'm not that sold on black, actually the locking differentials, the 4.5 engine, leather and one that has not been through thirteen New York winters is mainly what I'm looking for, but I will need to sell the FJ80 before I can purchase a FZJ80.. thanks all

Carl,
if you are shopping I would recommend looking at either autotrader.com - they have all kinds of model info if you go to used car research - including all options avail etc. I found somthing similar on Edmunds.com (including estimated values - better than KBB) - you can look up by year and then check the color options - here is an example:
http://www.edmunds.com/used/1997/to...?tid=edmunds.u.options.leftsidenav..7.Toyota*

Good luck - I have a Black one - it wasn't my first choice of colors - but it does look great when clean!!!!

Search the forum using the [move][glow=red,2,300]SEARCH[/glow][/move] button. There's been a few posts on this.

I have that exotic dark green color. I am willing to sell it for a premium. Say $25K for my 95 with the exotic dark green paint. I don't think there are many around are there??? :doh: I personally think that the white ones look the best. JMHO which counts for nothing :flipoff2:

IMO, any color will look good on LC80. Especially 6M1. :)

My next one is going to be an FZJ and be BLUE!! They are very hard to find, I did a nationwide search on autotrader.com a while ago, and found only 3!! One was up in Seattle, but it has cloth and no lockers :-\ My next choices are GREEN or CHARCOAL!!
