FJ Cruiser

Tossing around the idea of buying one of these as a new toy. Need all your input and suggestions. Anyone own one? How do they compare to Jeeps? Would want it to look something like this one.

I have seen a few of them around, but where I live they are too nice to scratch up just like my truck Thats why I just bought a jeep wrangler for the woods.

Those things are pretty capable off road actually. But if i had to choose between that and the Jeep i would get the Wrangler Rubicon. I had a rubi off road once those things are badazz

i dont like them... a few of my buddies have them (die hard toyota owners) and when we go to the dunes or trail they get stuck because the don't have enough power to go up the hills... also the windshield sucks.... its tiny and their is too much stuff going around the windshield that makes it horrible to see anything in front of you or on the sides... so if your getting it thinking its a good trail rig then this is not for you... stick to a TJ or the new JK....

You're not getting rid of both diesels are you Rick? I sure hope not! If you sold the OBS you would have to change your name.

Haha no the OBS is staying, the 04' is going and want something new. (Maybe my mid-life crisis!!)
