    Hey all, Excited to finally join y’all. I’m in VA, and I’ve been lurking for about 6 months while trying to find the right FJ to officially join the club. I’m looking for opinions. I found a 2013 with ~90k miles and the underside of this thing is the cleanest I’ve ever seen. Test drive it...

  5. Dealer Negotiations/Test Driving
    I am considering buying a 2007 FJ with 137,000 miles. Asking price is $12,000. I ordered a pre-purchase inspection of the vehicle from LemonSquad, which came back pretty clean, except in photos attached from the report I can spot signs of fender tears/cracks, which I've attached below. I've...

I had a true base model, with black steal rims and a tow hitch and parking sensor, rubber floor mats, airbags all...

    Hello to everyone. I will try to make this short, but doubtful. In the beginning… I should have bought the FJ when it was brand new. However, being that I am beyond frugal, I decided to wait a few years and let someone else take the depreciation. Well… the joke was on me. They did not lose...

    Hey all, First time joining a forum, much less posting on one, but figured I would reach out for experienced FJers advice. I am currently searching for a new ride after my 05 Jeep Cherokee decided to die on me. After plenty of searching, it seems that the best route into a Toyota 4x4 is an FJ...
