Oh not everyone has money to burn, trust me. And I see plenty of old rusty shit boxes. Im in a Toyota dealership not a Lexus dealership. They make 3 inch lifts for FJs that allow you to do the proper adjustments with the stock control arms. Its basically just a spacer that sits on top of the springs. And you flat out need that if you want to up your tire size without destroying your rack and pinion. I've seen them come on brand new vehicles.

Must of been a shitty lift. I work at a Toyota Dealership and for lifts 6 inches and over I usually see a whole new subframe and lower control arms that give more then enough adjustment on caster and camber.
User avatar #33 - tonydalion (01/02/2015) [-]
I'm in what you might call... A lower income area. People only pay for what they need to get the job done. They do the very minimum to lift it. Usually a cheap kit from ebay or something that they put in. We can never get the adjustments right. Sent an old Ford out the door with the camber in the red. Nothing I can do about it. Just gotta tell the customer they'll be wearing tires, and it might pull. Most don't care. They've got a lifted 15 year old truck, and that's good enough for them.

Besides. Dealership life is different. Everything is new, easy to work on, and people have money to burn if they're willing to pay the dealership rates. Of course they're gunna get the whole kit.

My FJ is my only car.It was made for off roading and I bought it just for that. I dont see why you would buy one if you werent planning on off roading it?
User avatar #29 - tonydalion (01/02/2015) [-]
Exactly why I'm concerned for the OP of this post. Also, I don't own one. I work on cars for a living, and had the 'privilege' to align one with a lift kit in it. Dude didn't get nearly enough caster angle, but that's his problem now.

"vastly underpowered"

Engine goes from 260 to 381 HP depending on configuration, as much or more than most "big" pick ups. Dodge 1500 has 215 to 390, F150 has 240 to 320, Silverado has 200 to 400.
User avatar #69 - tonydalion (01/03/2015) [-]
None of that power is at a usable low end range. Like most Asian vehicles, the torque curve is a little higher up in the RPM range. That requires a downshift or two on large hills.

In the real world, my 18 year old Dakota, with a tired 3.9l V6 can make it up a certain hill with only one downshift, 3/4's of the way up said hill. The FJ Cruiser took two downshifts to maintain speed on the same hill. Perhaps I've been spoiled by Dodge's superior low end torque.
User avatar #23 - Jewssassin (01/02/2015) [-]
I own an FJ Cruiser, and the wipers clear the windshield amazingly. I take it off road all the time and have gotten mud up on the windshield and the wipers clear it off. If your seriously complaining about power you're completely missing the point of the vehicle, additionally there is a lot of aftermarket upgrades that do not hurt reliability and give plenty of power. Visibility is great also except there is a large blind zone on other side of the vehicle you need to be mindful of while dirving on the highway, but again an FJ Cruiser wasnt made for highway driving.

I've found the only people who dont like an FJ Cruiser are grossly ignorant of the vehicles purpose, or just hate anything Asian.
User avatar #38 - charagrin (01/02/2015) [-]
You don't need to worry about power, my old FJ)before I traded it in) had around 300 stock. More than most pick ups, and some muscle cars. Worked just fine.
User avatar #60 - Jewssassin (01/02/2015) [-]
They actually have less then that stock. Its about 260-270 depending on the quality of the gas.
User avatar #63 - charagrin (01/03/2015) [-]
It depends on the configuration, which Toyota lists. My 2010 TRD had the mid package 4.8L V8, and pushed around 300 easy. I don't buy lot vehicles, so that may have something to do with it. You always get more options if you buy new from the factory, versus whatever prepackaged deals they have ready to go.
User avatar #64 - Jewssassin (01/03/2015) [-]
Uhhh....Where do you live? Toyota does no offer a 4.8 Litre V8 in any vehicle in the Toyota Lexus fleet in the US. The only available engine in the FJ Cruiser in the US is their 4.0 1GR-FE.
User avatar #66 - charagrin (01/03/2015) [-]
My apologies, I meant 4.6. I was concentrating on V6 versus V8 and mistyped. I remember because I had to pay extra for a tranny mate system because the Fj's was not low enough.
User avatar #67 - Jewssassin (01/03/2015) [-]
So you're telling me you had an FJ Cruiser with a 2UR-FE in it and you traded it in? I find that extremely hard to believe. World wild FJ Cruisers only came with a V6, a V8 was never an option, I just looked into it.
User avatar #68 - charagrin (01/03/2015) [-]
It most definitely was, as I've said, I don't buy lot vehicles. Believe what you will, we are just anonymous people thousands of miles apart.

User avatar #27 - tonydalion (01/02/2015) [-]
I find the middle wiper dumps the water right in the way of the driver's vision, which makes it hard to see. I live in a mountainous region, where we have long, steep hills all over the place. I don't like having to downshift twice just to maintain 50mph. And that's exactly the visibility I'm talking about. It's impractical for everyday driving. But then again, you can probably afford a second vehicle just for play.

Honestly though, I'm not much for off roading. I'm more of a... power, handling, and functionality kind of guy. Ergo, I drive a GSX-R on the good days. That's an Asian motorcycle. ^.^

Hehe, true. I'm starting to turn to Applejack. She reminds me of one of my neighbors. This neighbor is there if we ever need him, and he won't ask for help unless he's tried with what he's doing, and found that he couldn't do it. The two times he's come over for help, we moved a building, and put chains on his compact tractor. It's attributes like that, that make up a great person. Grant it, you need the other ones too, but that's an important one.

After watching a few episodes last night, I'm finding it harder and harder to say what pony's my favourite. I just love them all, xD. Dashie has the beast appearance, but I really do like Fluttershy's mane.
#7 to #6 - tonydalion (01/14/2012) [-]
Hehe. It's all about personality for me. Dash seems fun and outgoing. (Also 20% Cooler than the other ponies. :3) Something I always admire. Fluttershy is overly kind. Applejack is a hard worker, which is another great quality. Twilight is smart, and a born leader. Pinky Pie is overactive and fun. A great comedic relief. Rarity is a perfectionist, but is always willing to make sacrifices for her friends. Together they make the perfect group of friends.
User avatar #8 to #7 - oxan (01/14/2012) [-]
To be totally honest, I love all the ponies in Equestria. Every single one. Except the mean ponies, like Dashie's bullies and stuff.

That's my wallpaper at the moment. It fades in and out - it doesn't just jump like that.   
   
Basically, it goes:   
   
Dash, Dash/Fluttershy, Fluttershy, Dash/Fluttershy, (and then starts again at Dash).   
   
I'm quite proud of it :3

Heh, that's pretty sweet. I got Windows XP though, so I can't do that. I just keep it on one of Apofiss' wallpapers. This is the one I got right now. I just love this artist. He made another one that looks just like my cat, which is pretty sweet.

Heh, well I wish I could get a new laptop. Damn thing is ten years old. It's given me so many problems, I was about ready to fill a balloon full of acetylene and a little bit of oxygen, light and tape a cigarette to it (for a fuse), set it on the laptop, and walk away all bad ass like. It's that bad.
