Howdy, I have been a Tacoma and 4runner owner for years. I sold my 2016 taco a few weeks ago.
My FJ is being delivered as we speak! I bought it from a dealership 4 hours away using a nationwide search like jimmy buffet said to do. I think I did good. 2012 iceberg white 4x4 with leather 84k miles completely stock. 1 owner clean carfax always serviced at the local Toyota dealership in west Texas.
Between all the pics and the salesman, it is near perfect other than 2 small scratches on the rear bumper. I can refuse it when it gets here if I don't approve. If I like it I will sign the paperwork. I ended up at $21,400. From all the searching I have done that's a smoking deal! Plus I don't have to go get it.
Now for the mods! first up will be some nice black wheels and all terrain tires. Any suggestions? On my Taco I was running an Icon lift and 265/75/16 Falcon Wild Peaks, I loved the look of the tire but I always had a little trouble getting them to balance at all speeds. I want to keep descent mpg's but would like a bit bigger tire than stock.??? It has 17" wheels on it. I have always liked 16"s better but ??? I know y'all have heard this a million times before, but cut me some slack. I know all these answers on taco's but not on the FJ's.
Next will probably be a lift. I'm not sure I want to spend the money on the Icons again. I was thinking mor along the lines of Bilstein or OME Thoughts?
Thanks for the help!!
