    My 07 FJC is the daily driver. Plenty of power and comfortable on the road.

    My 79 40 is great for driving around town with the bikini top but on the highway, it follows every crack in the road.

    My 77 55 is what I wheel, mostly. Four to 5 hrs on the highway, wheel for several days and then drive home.

    Great fun but not the most comfortable on the highway.

    The FJC is as capable and then some to the 55 (or the 40).

    In 2016 I ran the Rubicon with the FJC and plan to run the Rubicon this year with the 55.

    While I love my Land Cruisers, they don't compare to the FJC for civility.

    You can drive a FJC daily and still run some of the most difficult trails.

    Different trucks, different personalities. It depends on what you are looking for.

    As the FJC is based on the Prada, hence the 70 series LC, it is a LC in my opinion.

    Shorter body and wheelbase, less expensive perhaps?

    4Runner suspension is different from FJ

    Because its not a soccer mom car like the 4runner. and pretty much comes with a rear locker + atrac standard. Youll more to get a 4r with that.
