It's an off-road Master, can go anywhere.

Like me, Chigoe is an older guy. Very experienced off-roader, probably been on every trail around Phoenix. But many, many with AZFJ have been there with him over the years. Lots of off-roading is common with this group and the FJ is built to handle it. If you drove it and liked it I'd say Buy It! It is well equipped and ready to go off roading. After 6 years of mostly off-road miles I sold (trade-in) my own FJ for about $28,000...so that FJ looks like a steal at that price. FJ's hold their value very well so it's possible you might sell it later for more money. If you buy it this group is a good source for upgrade info. Also on Facebook.

I have Buzz, a FJ60 5.3 swap that I ride pretty much everywhere... but thinking about this as more of a daily driver to give Buzz a break. I love Toyota 4x4s. But feel slightly silly to be looking at a 200k mile daily driver.

What is the life expectancy of these rigs?

change the oil when you remember; change the spark plugs when you remember (every 60k miles)

offer the dealer 10K cash out the door and buy it!

I had a neighbor in CA that changed the oil in his Tacoma maybe once every 50,000 miles and plugs at 100,000 miles. It always ran well. Another friend put over 550,000 miles on his '97 Jeep Grand Cherokee before buying a brand new one. He bought an Overland model in 2015 and now has about 3,500 miles on it. Then he bought a clean '99 Grand Cherokee for $3,500 to haul his dogs and make dump runs.
