    Went through all the Autospies pictures...some of the later ones (page ~40 IIRC) have what appear to be pictures of a video of the FJ Cruiser. Anyone see this video in person? It looks fairly cool, the boulder field it apparently crawls through is pretty good..considernig this is a bone stock vehicle...I grabbed these pictures I was talking about...oh and some chick ones...there are tons of FJ Cruiser pics in that AutoSpies link someone posted, closeups of the dash and all that, too many to copy and post here with this slow Inet connection...

    They had video kiosks playing footage of rubicon.

    Some of it was VERY impressive for a stock vehicle.

    Does anyone know if that winch on the green FJ is real or just a hook hanging out of the grill. That would be very cool if a winch could be mounted inside the stock bumper.

    the green one at the entrance to SEMA was largely a mockup...they had a couple people stationed there to keep you from touching it....

    The Blue one upstairs in the Toyota section was fully equipped...TLC took 3 Prado ARB bars and made them into the one ARB bar used for the show...looked very sweet. I wasn't a fan of the little rear bumperette tho....pretty cheesy there, but I suspect a "real" one will be forthcoming.

    The Yellow one by the SEMA rocks was also sharp, but locked up tight.

    Rumor has it TLC is gonna prototype a ragtop too

    The rear bumperette with winch was pretty ugly and non-functional looking. I imagine a replacement rear bumper and the front ARB are two of the first aftermarket accessories we see when the FJ comes out.

    Very nice job of picture selection. I like the Cragar girl the best.

    The black looks great. It also seems like the black and smurf blue FJ's may have a mild lift compared to the yellow. Anyone else see that, or is it just my imagination.

    Unsure of the black, But I do know the blue has a 3" coilover and the yellow is stock...We were also told that there were only 2 working FJC's in the USofA, SO, I wonder if the black one is elsewhere?!? :confused:
