Make a convertible

I know for a fact I am not alone on this desire.

There is something about going Off Road or even on pavement with no roof that is very enjoyable. Perhaps its the sense of freedom. Jeep knows this full well. That is why the Wrangler sells so much and holds its value so well. A Convertible 4x4 is the ultimate in freedom. With the addition of the Four Door Wrangler, more and more people are buying Jeeps. I myself have looked heavily at one. But there is one problem, its not a Toyota.

The FJ Convertible would be Toyota's answer to the four door JK. The JK outells the Wrangler currently. Its not because it looks better, is better built, or is more comfortable. Its because it is a convertible. As the Wrangler and FJ are big rivals, making the FJ a convertible is not only a rational move, but a smart one.

I guaranty you the day an FJ convertible is made into a production vehicle and is sold by my dealer, I will be at Toyota buying one. I'm sure many people on this forum feel the same way.

Re: Make a convertible

Let me add this
If Toyota makes a Convertible FJ I would sell my Jeep and buy it that day
even after the $$$$ that I have in it between '03 and now I would sell it at a loss
The reason we have it is for weekend fun ,I like off road she likes to go topless
enough said

Re: Make a convertible

Re: Make a convertible

That would be nice if they did decide to go back to their old roots and put a removable top on the FJC.
