My buddy had the same car in high school, except his was a total piece of shit. He did the best he could with it, but it was awful. Something constantly falling off, and only one headlight raised up (still lit up, just wouldn't open). It was a color we jokingly referred to as "fog" colored, and it ends up that he totaled it when someone hit him, no joke, in the fog.

i rebuilt the headlights a few years ago and added metal ball bearings to the opening mechanism because they were originally built with plastic that disintegrated over time. she has her hick ups every once in a while but nothing i can't fix. it pays to be a gear head also

I was really hoping that Toyota would have given Hasbro the okay to make an Alternators Trailbreaker. That FJ Cruiser is perfect for a modern Trailbreaker.

I drive a frickin soccer mom car so I am not going to bother posting that thing.

PCS, nice FJ. The black wheels look great on that. Still trying to convince the wife to get rid of the kid hauler and find a nice used TRD FJ. It'll never happen but I can wish.

Lego, we've had the FJ for over 2yrs and still fight over it like teenagers. I have never had a car that I love 2yrs into it as much as the day I bought it. The inside is designed to be hosed out and has yet to succomb to the torture of my kid. Just a great truck. Really shitty gas mileage with those tires, but the new less aggressive ones help ease that pain. The suicide doors can be a pain while unloading kids in a tight space, but o'well.

normally, i'd disagree with anything Toyota, but you make a really good point...that FJ would indeed make a really good Tb...incidentally, Tb was my very first TF

Just bought an H3 last Nov, but don't have any pix at the moment. Also have a Suzuki Hayabusa, no pix for some reason. I DO have a pic of my 2002 Z28 though...

I love your Ranger, Firefly, as I used to drive one just like it. I traded it in back in summer 2008 for a Nissan Titan.

The reason? They were selling Titans for the same price as Frontiers due to the crazy gas prices.

Basically scored a 26,000 dollar truck for just over 15K.

Yeah, I couldn't walk away from it.

It's fire engine red, and a true joy to drive.

Thanks. It's been a good truck. No complaints.

I actually didn't want to get rid of the Ranger, but that poor thing was on it's last leg. Kept leaking all kinds of fluids, and I was worried the transmission would eventually die on it.

Unfortunately I lost that picture when the site had a stroke. On a positive note, those people moved away last month.
