Very tempting! I live in Tampa... a short drive down there. I'm really waiting to see if they offer options to open up the roof (sunroof, removeable top), and rear window. I've got a Jeep, and very seldom take it off the road, but I really like being able to take to top off when the weathers nice. I'm not sure I'm ready to get in a vehicle that's as "cave like" as the currnet model... but I like pretty much everything else about the FJ.
Thanks for the info!
#1857 of 1886 FJ Cruiser production is over?

Hi everyone! Is anybody knows about Toyota plans to stop a production of FJ Cruiser? I heared it because sell is not good like was expected!
Any comments will appreciate!

I was told at my Toyota dealer that they are going to put a diesel in the 08 Four Runners and that FJ's will not be far behind.
I already love my FJ but if it had a 4 cylinder diesel, I would be CRAZY about it!!!
#1859 of 1886 Trailer Brake Controller install
Feb 25, 2007 (3:37 pm)
Has anyone found a brake controller harness under the FJ dash. I installed the FJ four wire trailer plug using the factory device but now I want a brake controller but cannot find any existing brake connector like the Tundra and Four Runner have...what did I miss?

I would sign up for a diesel if it came with a manual sis speed. The jeep Liberty CRD was not available with standard trans....turned me off.

I have been fighting with Toyota for 2 weeks now. They claim the FJ is rated for 5000 lbs tow capacity, but they have not provided a conversion to the 7 point system for the trailer brakes. They also refuse to allow a conversion to fit an electronic controller to be made to the harness. Doesn't really sound like a "5000 lb tow rating" does it?
I'm not too keen on hauling a large travel trailer without electric brakes (not to mention it is illegal).
#1863 of 1886 Running Boards

I finally found a pair of running boards after extensive search on Google. Yeah!! These boards seem as real as OEM boards. Anyway, I had ordered one and it's on the way. Can't wait to have my boyfriend install them for me. LOL

The reason I bought my FJ was the 5000 pound towing ability, and I certainly thought I could get electric brakes.. What now?

I found a controller online and installed it myself. I think many RV sales places and even UHaul can do this, should cost around $200.
