    So -- After a summer of hanging out with the Trail Team guys, watching and driving on Rubicon, and Pismo Beach, weighing all of the options, and doing as much research as we could, I pulled the trigger today.

    2007 TRD FJ Cruiser -- No other options, just the TRD package. Didn't want to mess with the roof rack, and I really like the all black look.

    We'll keep it stock-ish for a year or so. First option will be bumper/winch. We'll see what lifts are available after that.

    I think it'll be a nice option to the 40 for milder wheeling.

    My 5 year old was probably more excited than I was...

    800 under MSRP... 30,580

    Got that via Costco. I haven't seen any dealer go less than MSRP on the TRD's. They would have went a little lower on one of the regular ones.

    looks sharp and the look on your daughter's face is great!

    I really like the industrial look of the TRD wheels

    As far as I know, the last orders were filled at the End of Feb for TRD editions. It was a limited edition (3200), so I don't think you'll find many, except where they added the extra markup.

    All of the options were available individually, I think. I didn't want the sub, due to loss of storage space. I didn't want the rack, and really didn't want the rear tire cover.

    Any option is a available after the fact via Toyota or TRD.

    My next acquisition is an ARB bumper. Debating on leaving it black, or powder coating it silver

    Close. 57 210 post. Note the fins in the reflection :)

    We've had that for about 13 or 14 years... Now the 16year old boy thinks he needs to drive it... Ha!

    Yeah, Soft Top would be great. We'll see.

    2x the white bezel. perhaps a little radar blip is ok. it'd look damn sexy on that truck.

    I hope nobody considers this blasphemy, but would you ever consider keeping your TRD completely stock so that maybe in 120 years it becomes rare and extremely valuable??
