Re: Any regrets on going 4X2?
I'll say one thing about this, and then I will shut up. I have a friend who bought a truck at the same time as me (not an FJ). We both bought the same year, paid about the same (he paid slightly less), and had the same mileage.
When it was time to move on, he got about half out of his 4x2 of what I got out of my 4x4.
Sure he paid less upfront, and his gas costs were less because the 4x2 got better mileage. The problem was that his resale sucked, because the majority of truck purchasers are looking for 4x4's.
If you never plan on selling it, then I guess it negates the resale argument. However... you could probably pick up a lightly used one for way less than new, because there is somebody out there who bought a 4x2 and wants out of it. It could be a really good opportunity for you to get a screaming deal.
Good-bye Dad. I love you! Thanks for being such a wonderful father.
