    So after many years with every year of Toyota trucks and 4 runners . And always wanting a FJ40 . (Someday I will find the right one ) I decided to get the next best thing . A 2009 FJC. This will be mainly used for off-road trips . First big trip the FJ summit. Then Moab next sept . My dream trip is to do the drive to Alaska and I am
    Going to do that now . This is going to be a fun build . The pics are of day 1 with the FJ .

    Welcome... Driving my FJ Cruiser to Alaska's North Slope was the first big trip I did... You'll have a great time. Alaska is an experience that can never be duplicated.

    OMG you got me looking for FJ's for my son. I have mentioned that he wants a 4X4 Taco, thank goodness, more of those around but the prices in N Cal for used FJ's is crazy. I have seen some 2014 FJ's going for more than they were when on the showroom floor!! I also see 2wd models going for dumb prices too. Yikes. Some of these vehicles are Nevada too, which means a Ca DMV fee. Prices are good I suppose if you want to sell. I keep getting mailers from local Toyota dealers wanting to give me 125% of KBB for mine. I suppose we can say not a bad investment really since I am not willing to sell anytime soon.
    Firemedic831, my son loves your new FJ, so do I.
