After reading many posts on this board, it's occured to me that this must be the first Toyota for some of you. All the...
..."is it supposed to do that"...
..."wow, that felt weird"...
..."what is that"....
posts that I thought were just everyday driving things (this is my 3rd yota).

Just curious :)

I group up in a home with an FJ 40 and an FJ 62, but my dad paid for those and upgraded the bumpers, added additional tow / recovery points, custom roof rack, and we always had a bad ass winch and BFG tires. He now has a Tundra.

But this is my first Toyota that I paid for :)

Edit: Listing are we?

1957 Chev Bel Air (Grade 11, Grade 12, sold in first year university) (1988-90)
1976 Datsun B210 (student years part 1)
1978 Datsun B210 GX (student years part 2)
No car for a few years while living in 2 cities (NYC and Vancouver) and living my life on planes and rental cars around the world)
2001 Audi S4
2007 FJ Cruiser

It most certainly is my first Toyota. I'd never set foot on the lot of a foreign automaker before the FJC. I even kept my k1500 extend cab just in case I had regrets after I bought it. I had trouble getting the windshield wipers to work when driving it home. Still not real fond of those controls but I know where they are.

Thought I would be a life-long Subaru guy... The FJ is a nice change of pace :)

Edit: I did always want that Toyota pickup from Back To The Future...

I had a little toyota pickup in undergrad. This is my first new vehicle (unless you count the Honda mini van for my family...I don't) and my first vehicle with 4-wheel drive. Before that, I had never paid more than $2500 for a car. When I told my wife I needed this truck, she said that I ceratinly had a bunch of car karma built up for all of the junkers I have driven.

Ah, the mystique of the Toyota...yep, had an '82 2wd pickup, 4cyl, manual that would go almost anywhere. Many friends have had them and beat the daylights out of 'em and they seemed not to mind.

ya know...there have been a few times I've walked up to my FJ when it was parked in my storage unit (and I've been away from it for a week) that I feel like Michael J. seeing his pickup for the first time :)

That's it! Toss some sleeping bags in the back and head up to the lake with Jennifer...of course only after Biff waxed it with two coats... :D

Might be time to rent that again.
