    Emergency Preparedness

    Emergency Preparedness
    I am not sure I agree that defensive firearms with the proper ammunition is less effect more dangerous than a pack of dogs. Dog's are unpredictable and the liability is entirely in your hands if they attack a family member, guest or get out. Dry wall should catch a hallow point and prevent...

  7. Bad highway gas mileage

    General Discussion
    As others have eluded too....The FJ is not a Prius. It does not sip on gas and what we do to them does not do them any good in terms of gas milage. You will notice every MPH you go above 65 on the highway reduction in MPG....60-65 should be your focus. We don't build these for speed, we build...
  8. Terrible in ice and snow.

    General Discussion
    Used General Grabbers, no issues on snow....Ice means slow down and be careful. It's common sense, far too many crashes when people assume they can do the same speed they do in dry warm weather on snow and ice. Consider buying a set of Chain's for a the FJ....Plus some emergency traction...

    SMALL improvements were made during the life of the current FJ. I'm not saying you should pass, if you like the vehicle, it's with in 8% of the top end of my estimate. If you like the vehicle, I would offer 500 below top end blue book and see where it goes. I would say 19-23 for a TT 08' in...

    Current pricing of FJ's, I don't put that far off the mark. That being said you can buy a lot of other vehicles for the price. Keep in mind I paid less for my 08 TT two years ago.
