It took me a 1.5 days to sell this...

:wave: (however I will miss it).

The even better news is that I bought my new 08 FJ Cruiser today:rocker: (I bought the silver with the upgrade 2 package and convience pakage, along with some other goodies on it-black step bars, pasenger arm rest, roof rack and all weather cargo mats.

I paid off my Rubicon a few months ago. I need more space for my dogs, and anything else I care to put in vehicle.

I loved my Rubicon, however it was time for a change. On Thursday night, I went to the Jeep dealership just to test drive the new unlimited (I am honest, I still like them).

I liked the new hard top roof, I didn't like the interiior, thought is was cheaper material then my 04 Rubicon. I liked how the seats folded down.

I liked the ride, it was quieter, however I didn't like the new engine 3.8 vs my 4.0 in my Rubi.

Overall I still liked vehicle, however I was thinking, it really time for a change.

So I came home and told wife that I wanted to go the Toyota dealership and look at the FJ's (on saturday).

LOL, so today, I went over to the credit union and joined (liked the people their), people who bought my Jeep did business with them.

Note: It's like a 100 degrees outside, I had to walk about 2 miles both ways, I am 2 weeks post op from bicep and rotator cuff surgery:lol:

So I get their all sweaty:bigthumb: and ask to join credit union. I then get pre qualified for my loan:cheers:

Then I stagger back home, set pool up for my German Shepherd, and start making calls to internet manages.

After about the 9th one that I dealt with, he found vehicle I wanted, felt comfortable with price, and bought it.

:lol: I am so easy to deal with, I am a straight shooter, do my homwwork, and tell all the IM's that I don't like salesman, but IM's I can deal with.

The vehicle is coming off port toight, and I may have it tommorow, maybe:simmadown:

I had wife escort me over to Target (I am on a ton of pain meds), and I bought a bunch of goodies (new micro cloths, long micro broom like stick for washing top of vehicle, tire cleaner, armor all, etc.

The best thing I purchased tonight was a $20.00 FJ Cruiser in Voodoo bluc remote control car. I chased cats and dogs with it for abit, then put it on my dresser.

I am so excited, I have wanted this car forever, and now I got it.

My wife is very fruggle about money, doesn't like to buy new cars, however this one was my decision.

If it comes in tommorow, it will be her first time in one (were just suppose to go for testride), but figured I had nothing to do today, so thats why I started to make calls.

I think I am going to also look into putting in a Alpine Stereo system in it (with xm), I am so excited,

Thanks for reading.

Welcome, you will love the fj. Funny you post your rubicon, I came really close to choosing the rubicon over the FJ. In the end Toyota got me again.

Congrats! We bought ours with the dog in mind. One of the reasons I started looking at it was the ability to hose it out......

Unfortunately, the addition off all the strategically placed stereo equipment means I will get SHOT if I use a hose the way I had planned.

Still LOVE to drive it and I am sure you will too.
