    The Toyota FJ Cruiser is a special SUV -- and today I'm going to review the Toyota FJ Cruiser to show you why it deserves to make a comeback. First I'm going to show you all around the FJ Cruiser, and I'll show you its quirks and features. Then I'm going to drive the FJ Cruiser and explain how it drives.

    If a person really wants a riduculous off road thing...just look at military surplus humvees...they are cheap and you could spend the money you save on getting it modded up..for a unique crazy thing :) (that is unstoppable..and does 8mpg with a horrific auto box)

        Yeah, this is nowhere near stock. He is talking like it is tho. The subwoofer looks like that anyway.

                      Other than being 100% butt ugly and no visibility while driving this vehicle both on and off-road, it was a pretty good 4x4.

                        This guy tries to over exaggerate things when they really aren’t that big a deal. Oh my gosh those are huge AC controls. I wonder if you can see out the windshield with those things on there.?

                            Couldn't agree more on this car's current potential. Just looking at the success of the new Suzuki Jimny and the silly premiums you still have to pay on those over here seems to validate that statement. All those silly SUVs they currently sell basically look like bars of soap with wheels stuck on. Something more old-school looking while still being modern would probably be a huge hit.

                                  The floors are convenient for when you go offraiding or to the beach you can wipe the mud up with a rag, unlike jeeps. It'll take awhile to get sand out of the upholstery

                                            The seating position and the difficulty of accessing the rear seats on this car contributed to its low sales. It’s huge, cumbersome and uncomfortable.

                                                      They should have made the pickup versions - got rid of the big B pillar and would compete with Jeep Gladiator. https://cartype.com/pages/4768/toyota_fj_pickup__2006

                                                        Doug is the kind of guy to borrow your car and scratch the crap out of the windshield.

The only thing I don't love about it is the gas mileage, it's awful. Just make sure that when you get the windshield replaced that they put new pins on the front cowls otherwise they will blow off when you get up to interstate speeds...ask me how I know.
