Thanks Brian. Sounds like it's pretty loaded. And a lot of fun!
I think I'll take some people's advice and wait for the end of the quarter (Sep) and check back with the dealers then. Hopefully, they will be more open to steeper discounts. Something like this is worth waiting for anyway.

While the knowledge of people buying a car has improved enormously in the last 10 years dealers have still stuck to outdated selling tricks to extract extra money from customers using pseudo offer/demand capitalistic practices (I will say crook techniques). The selling of the FJ Cruiser is an example. Why charge more than the MRSP when at this price the dealer is already making a profit. Why does Toyota support this practice when its forecasting department already knew there was a lot of customer demand for this vehicle?

I am thinking of buying an FJ. I just drove one and love it. Currently I have a Wrangler and they are night and day. I do have an infant and the suicide doors are handy. Thier seems to be plenty of room back there and the vehicle is safe. I was just wondering if anyone has children and how versatile the Fj is for children? Any input would help?

I am the proud owner of a 2008 FJ Cruiser—option #2 off road package:
Bilstien shocks, BF Goodrich High wall tires, centrifugal pre-filter, rear differential lock, and of course the standard convenience package. (power this that tints back up senser you know)
paid 25,165 plus lowjack $599 - ext warrenty 5yr/100000ml $1000 plus tax and reg
ended up around 27,650 with out looking it up exactly. A1 toyota
I’ve had it for less than two months my three and a half year old loves it as much as I do. But, you will need to slide the front seat forward to buckle up the car seat properly otherwise it has been no trouble at all. Oh yea the only request my wife had when we decided on the ( best off road grocery getter) fj cruiser was a set of tube steps so she could get in more easily. A small price to pay though it does defeat the purpose of having such great ground clearance.

Thanks for the input. I was planning on the side steps just in case I let my wife drive it.

The days of taking $3 or $4 k off of the price are over, especially on foreign cars. Realistically you'll probably be around 27,500. I'm going to the dealer today to price one (in CT) and I'll let you know how I make out. I think I want thesame options except the roofrack.
