    I’ll miss the 2007 FJ, but I sold it to my cousin, so it’s still in the family!! My new blazing blue 4x4 Crew Max TRD Sport 5.7L is my new ride!!

    Welcome, do you think the fj is worth buying as a toy? I'm worried since its discontinued that there won't be much support as far as Oem parts and maintenance

    Definitely!!! I loved the Fj for around town and especially off road! Very reliable, has power, and it is very hard to get it stuck. Great resale value. I went all over the US in mine with no problems.

    Parts are readily available at Toyota and other places. I had wheel bearings replaced not long ago and an alternator a couple of years ago, but that was all in the 6 years I owned it, except for routine maintenance like brake pads, timing belt, spark plugs etc.

    The original FJ 40 was discontinued ages ago and still has a ton of support out there. I would expect the same with the "new" FJs...

    There was an fj40 on display where I bought my Tundra. Strange light green/lime color. Original price on the sticker was $3443.

    FJ Cruisers are FJCs, not FJs. I've owned both, and FJs are LandCruisers, FJCs are not.

    It's very purpley! I saw one that had rolled over 4-5 times a couple months ago. No one had a single scratch on them! The pizza was stuck to the ceiling, but that was the least of their worries.

    Nice, I had the same year and color, traded it for a 14 4Runner. Miss it sometimes but i see it often as I’m guessing the guy that bought it is local.
