Hi guys.

Was wondering if any of you FJ Cruiser Drivers know specific shops which sell gadgets and parts specially for the FJ.

I know the internet, but I like to see, touch and feel stuff first before I buy.

Always liked them, but never drove one. How do you like it?

Almost bought one last month and test drove it for two days. Great car, diesel, excellent suspension, good clearance. Talked myself out of it though, because of gas mileage and high mileage on the odometer. Bought a 4WD, diesel Hyundai Sante Fe instead, much lower miles. Very happy w/it so far. Not as rugged as the FJ though.

I didn't know there was a diesel FJ Cruiser? Now that would be an excellent vehicle. Toyota diesel engines are bulletproof.

as tflea and i discussed, a 2008 will run you close to a million pesos. you cannot get full insurance coverage for that year. i know that if i had a million pesos to spend on a car, i would not want to know that when some uninsured idiot in a truck cleans my clock, i have to eat that kind of a loss.

Toyota was using a Cummins diesel for the FJ.........and they are quite well known and respected.

The diesel version was not sold/produced in the US. Any that are in the DR were likely from Brazil.

Terrible sight lines and poor gas mileage ultimately helped kill the FJ.

Excellent

I first wanted to sell it to get the same but a new model, then decided to put some money in extras and keep it. Best decision ever ....

Used to be black with white roof and all stock, now complete black with all new lights and wider tires.

Best car I ever owned.

As I made some upgrades on my FJ there are some parts I want to give away and /or sell like original front and back lights and fender flares.

If anybody need any let me know, I will never put the stock li guts back on.
