Is dumbed down really the phrase you want to use? I know your a purist but even the 200 uses the fancy electronic stuff and that’s the way of the future.I have driven several FJ Cruisers and have been impressed with them on and off road. I do admit that driving an IFS vehicle off road is new to me and requires some different techniques. I am a purist though and not a fan of all the electronic aids like ATRAC, CRAWL, etc. To me it takes away the challenge of wheeling and building more skills Off Road. Sad that just like the rest of America, 4WD’s are also being dumbed down as well.
No doubt it's awesome off road, but compared to another coworker's 100 series, I much preferred driving the UZJ100. For that matter, also my 62.
LMAO -- I harken back to the days people carried water in 50 gallon barrels on the sides of their wagons: "So what's with all these young kids with all their fancy gizmos; ya can't get over a log if ya can't unhitch the team."I just don’t see how an Off Road Driver becomes more skilled by using or relying all the time on these tech gadgets. That’s all
