Need a Spot
I've been considering buying new wheels and tires for my 02 4Runner since it looks like I may have about 5K miles left on them (34K on the truck).

Then I was reading a trade journal a friend of mine in the auto industry gets and saw the FJ Cruiser is supposed to hit the shelves in Q1 2006. Since it's been almost 2 years since they first said something about this, I had forgotten about.

The article said it was about 4" narrowed and 11" shorter than the current 4th gen 4Runner, but built on the same platform. So I'm thinking thats *roughly* the size of the 3rd gen - *roughly*. It gave a few other specs too, but no mention of price.

So now I'm thinking maybe I should hold off on the tires and just buy an FJ. Anyone else considering this purchase?

We talked about the FJ a few months ago, don't remember talking about a price. You may want to do a search on here for the FJ. I just hope that it get better gas milage then my 2002 4 Runner, it's killing me!
The news said that gas prices will go up a dime tomorrow, that would make gas in SE Wisconsin $2.89! Ouch!

Body Damage is Cool
Gas in Seattle has been $2.89 for 87 octane for two months. Guessing it will cross 3 within the week. Any pics of the FJ?

Getting the Wheeling Fever
Man that FJ is awesome I have been thinking once I get my new job I might be looking at a new vehicle. I was looking at a Humvee since I was in the military I love them but I also looked at a H3 and a pretty recent land cruiser.
