hey all. i don't have my Cruiser yet - my Brick 2011 model is being custom-built for me in Osaka as we speak. :D my specs didn't seem unusual to me, but i guess because of the way Toyota distributes its vehicles and regulates its dealerships, the only way to get just what i wanted here on Long Island - even though it was already sitting on a dealer's lot in Taos, NM and probably in some other US locations too - was to order it direct from Toyota. so i don't have my Cruiser yet, but in a month or so i expect to take delivery of a truck built just for me. and i expect i'll have some questions. and comments. and pointless random thoughts. and i'll want to post them somewhere. and this looked like at least as good a place as any. aren't you lucky?!

;)

so...hi!

thank you, everybody. :)

what i was looking for that i couldn't find - if you can believe it - was basically just an FJ with both a Brick paint job and a manual transmission. i could find one in the odd far-off state, but neither i nor my sales guy at my local dealership could find one in this region, and since Toyota dealers can only grab vehicles from other dealerships within their own region, i was out of luck.

:mecry:

recent development: since my dealer told me Toyota had stopped production of the FJ because of the earthquake/tsunami, i found the truck i was looking for in MA (i'm in NY), put down a deposit on it today, and expect to take delivery around Thursday - photos to come. :clap: turns out the vehicle may not be *quite* everything i desired - i.e., no rear locker - but i'm not even sure i'm going to be doing serious wheelin', and if i find i am, i'm not averse to putting in an aftermarket locker (or two) and just doing without A-TRAC. my truck has TRAC and VSC and i expect those will do me fine for on-road and easy trail work.

right now, i'm just looking forward to sitting WAY up high over the traffic again...and driving a vehicle i'm madly in love with. :D

thanks again for all the welcomes, and sorry i didn't reply sooner - i seem to have auto-subscription turned off for some reason. off to fix that now!
