Chicago area enthusiasts?

I'm looking to buy a 2010 FJ in the Chicago area, unfortunately I live in Topeka, KS. I'm just curious if there's anyone in the area that might be able to swing by and check it out for me or recommend a mechanic that I could have it taken to for a second opinion. I'm hoping to fly out Saturday to pick it up if everything checks out

Re: Chicago area enthusiasts?

just based on what I have read and seen from the upper midwest and Chicago members, there is no way I would consider buying an FJ from that area of the country. Even if you cant get someone locally to take a look, I would be asking for plenty of pictures of the underside and frame from the seller.

Perhaps you have already done this and are satisfied it is rust free.

Re: Chicago area enthusiasts?

I have asked, waiting to receive them. I'm definitely paranoid of rust and everything, and at the price I'm definitely concerned about it on this rig

Finally got the dealer to send pics. Not horrible rust but just a little more than I'm willing to deal with at the price
