OK, Boys and Girls, Readers Digest version, My wife calls me yesterday and says shes behind a Yellow FJ (Orange County of So Cal.). Short story, I have her follow the guy, I talk on cell phone to him, I get to see it and go for a test ride. I'm trying to download a few pics (computer is fighting me and winning), but they are almost all of the exterior. Questions?

This was the Yellow one from Ojai (allegedly)......Rides sweet, the Stereo rocks like no other, 8" in the doors, overheads are where the B pillar (if it had one)would meet the roof, just behind and over drivers left ear, pass. 's right, 2 on the flat of the dash and 2 speakers in back corner, C pillar? and a 10" sub that blasts!!!

Didn't see the dash at SEMA, .....it looks real clean at night with the white gauges lit up, funny though the center area, radios, etc is orange. Yes, I'm a lucky man married to a special lady.

The call went like this...
Her: "I think I'm behind an FJ...it's pretty cool.
Me: FOLLOW HIM!!!
Her: ...and do what?
Me: I DON'T KNOW, BUT FOLLOW HIM!!! SEE IF YOU CAN GET HIM TO STOP AND TELL HIM I WANT TO SEE IT!!!!
Her: But I'm in the wrong lane, Hold on.....Yeah, he's pulling over

......talk in the background......hold on, hear you talk to him.
Me: grovel, grovel, please, please.........you will?.......very cool!! :D

My new BEST Friend :cool: writes for an offroad mag and has had it for a week.
A couple of hours later, I'm sitting in it, next thing I know, he's showing me what it can do on one of the local trails. :D :D

Excellent post! I like large outside mirrors, but the FJ's are GARGANTUAN!!! The FJ looks awesome in Sun Fusion (read 'yellow', but does not sound good to the Toyota marketing group), and is my #1 FJC color choice. I wonder if the mirror is a production part...

I hate to hit the mirror a tree with them. Hell replacement cost for them will be $300 bills.

Let us all genuflect and bask in your glory for a moment. And the fact that you owe it all to your wife! Awesome. We send her all of our praises. Gotta love a woman like that.

To answer your question, you look fantastic in the radioactive yellow. And yes, your yesterday was threehundredandfortyseventimes better than mine. I'd say you look like a fellow that's just hijacked the Holy Grail and you're on your way home to hawk it on ebay.

so can you tell us how it drove? Did it handle really well? Was the back of it ugly in person? :) Did the interior feel cheap or nice? Give us some good driving impressions if you would...I'm really curious (and congrats for getting to have such a great day)
