Re: 2014 Purchase Price Opinions?
I'd look at other roof racks before going the OEM route, unless you just like the look and can get one for almost free that someone wants to unload. Personally, to go to the trouble of jacking with putting on a new rack, I'd want something more useful than the OEM. If I wasn't afraid of completely jacking things up, I'd take mine off and go with something else.
Negotiate with them, let it get close to end of month, and use the tires, etc as a negotiation point for more cash off. Is this a private sale (I know we are in the dealer negotiations subforum, but making sure). How many owners? You can check maintenance done at any dealer, etc at toyota.com/owners with the VIN. They should also have a carfax available if it is a dealer. Where is the FJ located, etc?
All these things make a difference, in my opinion. A 1 owner, purchase from that person, and good clean history, would be worth more to me than 1 sitting on a lot somewhere that had multiple owners.
