It all started when I got the FJ bug about six months ago. My current car, a 2008 Mazda6, had just crossed 200K miles. When I bought the car five years ago, I told myself I would sell at 200K and buy something I actually wanted to drive. I've always loved road trips, and I'd love to start overlanding at some point but, I drive a Mazda6. The FJ seems like the perfect vehicle to fit the bill. After countless hours cruising this forum, Autotrader, Carmax, and Craigslist, I've concluded that my favorite year of the trail teams is 2010, and of course, the manual version.

Fast forward to two months ago. Upon doing my daily search, I found it. A 2010 TT Manual with about 80K miles for a beautiful price in Florida. I contacted the dealer. They contacted me. I was getting financials ready, looking at one-way flights to Florida until..... I lost my job. Everything I wanted was put on hold for everything I needed.

I started a new position a month later (hooray!) and so the search continues. In my last six months I have only seen ONE example of a low-ish mileage 2010 TT manual. So, I am reaching out. I am not looking to buy someone's overland build, if there are minor customizations that is fine but I am not interested in crazy trail rigs. If you own, or know someone who owns a fine example, as close to stock as possible, and are interested in talking reasonable prices, PLEASE reach out. Let's hope within a few months I'll be posting pics of my own adventures on this forum.

Cheers,
-Jeremy

Mines not manual but it’s basically a DIY Trail Teams from 2014 with 69k miles. It’s Iceberg white. I have it listed here. Will be adding more details tonight

Sorry but I’m sure you’ve seen the weather in the western ny area. I’ve been on my back the last week doing the underbody to have it ready for the winter. Setting up garage heater to do remainder.

I just dropped the price on my 2014 White FJ with 69,800 miles. $29,999. It would come with an Eezi Awn Rack instead of factory. Other than that, the upgrades have mainly been Toyota OEM parts like the Trail Teams Ultimate Edition suspension, TRD wheels, and OEM Toyota Auxiliary lights. I have factory skids that could go back on and I could take the Demello Offroad sliders off if you were interested. I built it to go back to stock easily (except rack) in case someone was interested in more of a factory vehicle. Here is a picture of what it would look like without all the rack accessories and roof top tent.
