The yellow or Sun Fusion is not very popular here on the forums. I think Yellow is just fine for this type of vehicle and I think will hold up to fading (I have a '70 Buick GSX in Saturn Yellow that still has original paint and it sat outside for many, many years).....Who ever showed the picture of wheel and tire on the Yellow FJ, I am very jealous, that is the color I wanted, but since I wanted an FJ, the Army Green was the last one on the lot, and I could never afford a new paint job, just when I thought that getting it wrapped might be an economical way to go, I learned that the wraps only last about 5 years, and cost half the price on getting it painted at 5 - 6 K... Way to expensive to have someone put a vinyl sticker on my FJ, and yes I do understand the amount of hours and skill it takes to do it, I would still never pay that amount for something needing replacing after 5 years.
Either way, off road package or not, I still love my FJ
I am kind of partial to that yellow color because I had an 79 Jeep CJ7 that was yellow with black trim, and it was absolutely stunning. It looked amazing on my Jeep, and I have always wanted that same color combination again in another vehicle. I haven't really seen a vehicle that I would want to purchase in that color combo that wouldn't just look [email protected]$$ in my opinion. Granted, it can look horrific on the wrong vehicle.The yellow or Sun Fusion is not very popular here on the forums.

While I do feel like I had no choice, I will say it has grown on me over the years, but it's still not the color I would have chosen given the choice. I liked the Plum color as well, but the Army Green was the last one on the lot, and it was either the Green FJ, or an over prices Jeep Wrangler... Because I wanted either the FJ or a Jeep, my decision was made for me when I took the test drive and the FJ felt very wide, and I didn't feel like I was sitting on top of the passenger, and I loved the way Toyota incorporated the outside color on the interior door cards.... Not to mention the other amenities that were in the FJ like the Backup Camera, Rear Sonar, and Power Inverter.. Not to mention the spaciousness and the way the dash just flows into the center console.The Army Green color was new in 2010 or 2011 and it very well liked so you did well on colors even though you felt you had no choice.
