So far the threads here are for great suggested improvements. Good features of a good product disappear all the time in the next version and then we miss it when it's gone.

Reply to this thread if there is something you would like Toyota to keep as is on the FJC and why.

The white roof truly lends itself to the classic design. In the past, the white roofs were there to keep the vehicle cooler and it might be true today.

I hope the white tops continue to be part of the design :bigthumb:

Damn. Nice thread.

I like 99% of the truck, with the exception being .....

Ok, I like the whole truck.
What some may not understand is that it is always give and take. If you make a better offroad vehicle it can suffer ON road prowess and visa versa. The engineers did a fantastic job of making this a good two way vehicle that can be a grocery getter that is off road worthy right out of the box!

...but I especially like the aesthetic design. The rounded edges as opposed to hard lines makes it look like a predator ready to pounce; not like the very utilitarian looking competition. This thing looks like a pit bull with it's stance and it is just as tenacious. :)

Interior fabric :rocker:

I freaking love the interior fabric of the FJC. I also love the plastic/rubber flooring. Both can be wiped down hard with a wet rag and dried easy. It's so easy to clean, my passengers do not realize I've coated my interior with dust and dirt from all over SoCal OHVs.

Hope the floor and seating fabric doesn't change :bigthumb:

Toyota needs to freeze the general size and profile of the FJ's body design.

Just look at the Rav4 and how it has grown from a bargain "baby" SUV into something quite bigger and more expensive. Toyota already makes the 4Runner and should not even consider stretching the FJ and making it a 4 door. Just keep it's rough edges, much the same as the original Land Cruisers were rough around the edges. Now a 4WD Land Cruiser is $73K off the lot!

Whoever makes the decisions on the FJC WHEELs, GOOD JOB!!!

The "17 Alloys, "17 & "16 Steelies, "16 2008 Alloys, "16 TRD SE (in gray, silver, & black) all are great! They don't look cheap and can be resold if need be. Or if you repaint them, they take on a new life. If you paint ugly wheels, they are still ugly unlike our FJC alloys.

Whoever is designing the alloys for the FJC, give that person a raise and don't let him/her go :clap:

Keep:
Driver side glove box
suicide door opening angles (easiest suicide door rear seat to get into I know)
panel clearances (meaning: I can route wiring everywhere in the spaces behind the panels)
Seats (I find them quite comfortable)
curb-side rear door opening
white roof (mentioned above)
IFS
basic three-knob environmental controls (temp, direction, fan speed) (fully electronic versions never work as well)
lack of carpet

You took the words right out of my mouth. The FJ is a masterpiece of balance and harmony between these extreme uses. As I've said before, its engineers have hit a sweet spot that folks who haven't driven it are completely unaware of. It is also amenable to modding no matter what you want to do with it. I'll spare you the haiku... :p ...this time! Great thread!

The back seats fold down! Makes room for beer, golf clubs, and, well, what else do you need?:clap:

Like thread title says, "Leave it as is".

If Toyota were to start giving into all the request being made the average joe could not afford the FJ.

As it sits the, FJ is a great firm fondation to mod on. Don't change a thing.

The rounded roof, I love how much room it gives you. The steering wheel is perfect for my hands and gives me a good feel. The rear storage/cargo area-plenty of options to carry my stuff. I'm pretty much happy with 99.7% of the truck. I'm still going to do some mods but will take my time and enjoy each and every one.

The easy access/roomy engine compartment.
It's not crammed pack full of crap that makes it a nightmare to work in like a lot of other SUVs I've seen. People are amazed at my FJ engine compartment and how easy it is to get at stuff. :bigthumb:
