Re: Should I Get It?
It all depends upon your lifestyle, needs and personal preference. I bought a 4x2 FJC because after owning several 4x4 vehicles over the previous twenty years, I realized that I had only engaged 4wd a handful of times. This was despite the fact that I was an avid whitewater kayaker, and spent a lot of time camping in the Big Bend area of Texas.
The 4x2 FJC is plenty capable, as many other 4x2 owners on this forum will attest. You may not be able to get into any serious rock-crawling, but if all you ever deal with are trails and snow, you should be fine.
Also, I really think that $22,500 is a pretty decent price for the FJC you're looking at. I was told that my 2007 has a resale value of $20,000-$21,000, and your FJC has an aftermarket ARB bumper added, which sells for about $1200.
