Voodoo Blue in Western NY!

Howdy! I've lurked around a bit, figured I'd do an intro post.

I totaled my 2008 regular cab Taco in a snowstorm back in November. I searched frantically for another Taco, but came across this 2008 Voodoo Blue FJ 6MT and fell in love. Picked it up in early December with 144xxx miles and brand new 285/70R17 KO2s for $14K. The frame has a lot less corrosion on it than I expected from a vehicle that old in Rochester, NY. It was obviously taken care of given how nice the paint looks and the interior looks brand new.

I'll say that I miss my Taco dearly, and every single time I see a regular cab drive past me I shed a tear. However, I absolutely LOVE this FJ! I've always had a bit of a fascination with them, and now I finally made the jump! It has just enough cargo capacity to haul the equipment I need for beer festivals, so I'm comfortable giving up the cargo capabilities of the Taco, especially with the increased capabilities off-road and in snow!

Re: Voodoo Blue in Western NY!

Welcome, nice looking rig. I had an 2005 Sequoia before my FJ. Racked up a ton of miles before I traded.

Coolest vehicle I've ever owned

Re: Voodoo Blue in Western NY!

Welcome! I hear ya! I was sad when Toyota stopped the 4x4 regular cab, but FJs are much cooler

Re: Voodoo Blue in Western NY!

Welcome from Northern California! You'll probably always miss your Taco for some reason or another, but you won't regret getting the FJ.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has caused all the damage to my FJ.
~ Robert Frost
