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!
