Sweet Rig

That is a sweet rig my friend. I love it. I sat in an FJ today, I have the itch. But alas I will be strong.

Have safe travels...

East bound and down, loaded up and truckin',
We gonna do what they say can't be done.
We've got a long way to go and a short time to get there.
I'm east bound, just watch ol' "Bandit" run.

Keep your eyes open for those Kojack's with a Kodak while you got the hammer down!

Re: Sweet Rig

So I've read the reviews. Tell me, in your own words, about the FJ if you would please.

Re: Sweet Rig

First unfortunately I did not drive it, just sat in it. Two things struck me right away. 1. A bit hard to get into without dragging your suit pants up the underside as you get in. 2. Seat may be hard to position for a tall person on a long drive. The cool factor is hard to beat though. You of all people know I am a truck guy at heart. That thing is all truck. It’s very wide and feels very big from the driver’s seat. It is utilitarian inside but with nice surface textures and classic styling, it is a very well done interior. It’s going to be a temptation for some time, but again I will be strong. Maybe the next model version will have the necessary refinements to push me over the top. One other thing though the gas mileage sucks! So I also would want to make another work jump closer to home before considering n FJ. I really don't want a $120 a week gasoline bill anytime soon... scratch that.. ever! They sure are nice to look at, particularly the front end. I did fantasize about my black weather proof photogoot gear bags and containers cargo netted into the back as I set off for roads less traveled an a photo adventure.... *sigh*...

Re: Sweet Rig

I vote for waiting until the next model revision. Sounds nice though. Sounds...adventurous!
