    I think the fj cruiser should alittle skinnier and less blind spots

      Not a bad idea, definitely. Sadly, this is the last year for the FJ Cruiser, so hopefully Toyota will come up with something similar down the line that combines the best of both worlds!

    Just bought a 14 FJ. Been wanting one for 7 years. Heard 14 was the last year, and finally made it happen. Don’t get the complaints about blind spots, but have been driving trucks many years, and learned early on to depend on my mirrors.

    My only complaint is the junk granny tires it came with. I spec’d the off road package with mine, and had to go right to Discount tire and add some at’s.

    Toyota, like Jeep should always strive to have a hard core off roader in their line-up. It’s what gave them their names!
