Introducing the "I'd Like to Tell Toyota" Forum.

I'd Like to Tell Toyota... This is for constructive suggestions to be made to Toyota regarding the FJ Cruiser. This is a flame free forum and heavily moderated. Nonsensical posts as well as 'empty' posts of no real value will be removed (not in this thread, but in the beneficial ones). We're hoping that Toyota will be able to use this as a tool for future changes / improvements.

Re: Introducing the "I'd Like to Tell Toyota" Forum.

Slimmer roof rack, VSC off switch, Larger (fillable) gas tank, black trim option, upswinging hatch, extra 12v in front, sunroof option, more resistance on AC/fan controls, true fold flat rear seats, navigation/rear camera option, wind testing with windows down (do those visor things help), don't raise the price (at least until I get another I'll name "Spare")

The explanations (as needed):
Upswing hatch: I'd love to be able to stand under it while gearing up, or unloading my work stuff.
VSC Off: My V8 Limited 4R has one...
AC/Fan controls: With a manual transmission, bouncing along a rough patch, it's very easy to nudge these controls inadvertantly.

I'm only a month in and if I had to pick a number one choice, it would be the gas tank. It really hates to be filled but it loves to drink.

Bacon...the new lettuce.

I think a sun roof would be awesome! I like the side swing rear door but I also see the benefits of having a top hinge.... especially when tailgating

Re: Introducing the "I'd Like to Tell Toyota" Forum.

Add a pull strap to the rear half doors on the FJ Cruiser so the rear passenger can close the door easier. 2 or 3 Extra 12V outlet in front as well as a USB outlet for charging. A pull out cargo tray like the 4Runner. Cargo hook "track system" in the rear compartment like the XTerra. Guage lights on whenever car is on regardless of switch position. Switch to turn the rear view camera on regardless of which gear the vehicle is in. Just a few things--minor really.

Re: Introducing the "I'd Like to Tell Toyota" Forum.

Can we do something about raising the sirus/xm antenna so it does not fade out when you drive due east. (or is this rare ? ) Also what are we suppose to cover the center hub of the 2011 TT spare tire with that does not blind the camera ?
