Oh, automotive press...

"the rugged Y-spoke wheels and meaty 225/55 18-inch Goodyears suggest a proper rough-and-tumble off-roader is afoot."

I would guess that's a front tire, but I did notice it's not a coil-over shock. And Jim, get your eyes checked. It's orange.

so since the FJ Cruiser was concept in 2003, and not released until 2007; I guess we have a 4 year wait ahead of us.. and we all know how the concept doesnt exactly translate to production

Maybe on the planet you're from the atmosphere alters the colors but that is "SUNFUSION" my friend.

I will concede however, that the original concept was VooDoo blue. Another FINE color. I think my third choice is the Bucketboy Red. I LOVE those TRAILTEAMS red ones. Kind of like a Fire Chief FJ.

Definitely orange... "Inferno" if you prefer.

I DO prefer Inferno, but only when it's in a plastic bottle:


But that FJ is as Yeller as a school bus.

Exactly! I can't wait to have the whole "what psi to air down to" discussion with those. Rolling Eyes

Yeah, but changing tires will be a "snap"

Should be about twice as useful as the locker on the Colorado.
