Well I am finally joining you guys. After spending weeks and months looking for Magma, Red, Cavalry, decided I wanted Red, with all the bells and whistles. Every FJ I wanted all over the US (thats how much I searched), was all modded or tons of rust underneath, once I asked for undercarriage pics.

Got it:

2012 Trail Team Radiant red.
1 Owner
All Records from Toyota
71K miles
Bone stock
Just traded in today at 2pm


Bought a one way ticket. Paid for truck. Will get it home on Tuesday! Super excited for first time FJ here

Wife likes contrasting roof, so she wants to wrap the roof gloss black

Welcome from Vancouver, Canada!
THANK YOU KINDLY. Long time Toyota/Lexus owner. Going to get rid of my LX570. Radiant Red!!


It was so frustrating on used market. Trying to get pics of all the buttons in front of shifter, crawl control pics. Glad its all behind me. Now the emptiness in my bank account :D

Welcome!:smile Great choice red TT. You were smart to ask for undercarriage pics.
Funny thing is, top would be PERFECT Magma, Perfect yellow or Sandstorm, etc. Minute I asked for undercarriage, 50% people wouldn't respond. Out of the ones that responded, SO MUCH RUST. And I was staying away from the MI/NY/MN trucks. But even OKC trucks had rust that I saw.

Oh well, I am happy with the Southern RED. :)

That black wrap on the top is going to draw in a lot of heat. That’s why they originally did white on top to help reflect the heat. At least you aren’t permanently painting it.

Funny what some dealers in NH and MA consider “light rust”
