    Hello from Germany/ Italy, I am near to buy a imported FJ cruiser here in Germany. It was auctioned and bought by a german dealer, imported legalized etc. https://www.emiratesauction.com/en/C...x?randid=50651

    VIN jtebu11f6dk150271

    I asked Toyota.ae for some help but no reply....

    The FJ has a Manual trans and is the base model which i prefer, But i have no clue where it is comming from and who put it on auction. No service report available etc. The car looks good, bust still sandy. What do you think is this a rental car or a leasing daily driver ? Look not as a personal car. It doesent look like a desert racer either. The price will be 28.000 eur which is ok i think seeing the 30 % vat7tax , shipment etc. A new FJ is 48.000 euro here.

    Reply would be highly appreciate. I like Abu Dhabi and like to come again fpr some desert camping

    Hi there

    I've read a few of your posts and you seem pretty familiar with running the FJ in the dunes we get out here in the middle east. You and quite a few others I've spoken to rate the Cooper A/T3 highly for sand performance, so I've all but decided that it'll be my next tyre. The dealer here in Oman has them in 265/70/R17 and 285/70/R17 and I'm torn a bit between the two. Do you think the 285 offers a significant advantage in the dunes?

    I've read a lot about how light tires are preferable for sand driving, and the 285s come in a bit heavier than the 265s but perhaps the added flotation would make up for that? I'm looking at P-rated tyres in both metrics. The other issue is whether there'd be any rubbing on the body mounts without doing any chopping; the guys in the shop here fitted one to the front of my 2015 TRD (2" lift) and it narrowly cleared the mount, but they reckoned that under braking it would probably rub. Do you find that yours rubs?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi.

    Camel off Roaders is here https://maps.google.com/?q=25.291111,55.390976
    This is the number of Nerses +971 55 687 7435

    They have a lot of parts for FJ (The guy modifies only FJs).
    I must say you can find cheaper parts elsewhere, but a lot of duplicates around here... Be carefull
