Cool Well I drank the Koolaid

I've owned about 6 4runner's a 1985 a 1986,a 1993 and two 1999's and a 2006 and 2 Toyota pickup's a 1992 and a 1982.
I got the bug decided I wanted another rig.
I wanted a FJ80 with a locking differential but I didn't have 8-10k cash laying around.
Well decided I think I needed a newer option.
I Bought a 2008 FJ cruiser on the 15th of this month.
Yes higher mileage Fj Cruiser 180k but I got it for $8000.
It's a automatic and has the locking differential and sub and stuff.
Behold the Nuclear Banana...

Re: Well I drank the Koolaid

Welcome!
It looks pretty tidy - hard to believe that it's 11 years old!
Another 58K miles, and it's driven to the moon - Then you'll have to bring it back :-)

Re: Well I drank the Koolaid

Thanks Chris and Amaclach.

Here are the links to some of the trucks I have owned in the past.

Yes that's Cardomain.... I am old... lol

Needless to say I am experienced with "Toyota's"


The FJ from what I was told by the owner it has never been "offroad". All of the miles are highway miles....
They had all the service records. No accidents although hard to believe in Florida... Jacksonville Florida has the highest accident rate for the whole entire state... Defensive driving is a must in this place.
