Well the price you pay for a Tojo that should have been standard.

They just supply a "Poverty Pack" & everything else is extra ... including AC. :roll:

So you're only ever gonna take 2 & just for towing ya boat(tinnie)?

New 5 cylinder turbo diesel Mazda BT50 would have been a better option.

Good grief .... this FJ is bloody petrol as well :roll: .... no more bonnet level creek crossings for you :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

What possessed you as a Territorian to buy a bloody petrol 4x4? :shock:

Oh

My

God


You bought a Petrol 4Bee :shock:

and quite possibly the ugliest, no, the ugliest 4bee eva….. :shock:

in fact… if you had a pet dog that was as ugly as that car you’d paint a face on its ass and make it walk backwards… :lol:

but I find them strangely appealing for some reason… if it had a decent Diesel engine in it not unlike gnads’s BT50 I’d think about getting one myself ;)

have you got any pictures of the inside? :D

I was reading that Toyota are quoting 11.4lt per 100ks average fuel consumption for that rig but in actual onroad testing it’s more like 14lts ….. I hope that’s wrong, as you will certainly need that long rage fuel tank…

I’ve just filled mine up tonight with 68lts for 765ks…. So I think that’s about 9lts per 100ks or a bit better… I’d have to get a calculator… but on those figures I could pull 850 ks out of the tank… if I was game enough to push it… I’ve done 795ks on about the same 68lts… just depends on different conditions I suppose…

i'd be interest to know how you go within this regards freon.. :)

I can get about two miles on my scooter if I had a long enough extension cord.

I think it looks great, freon.
I really mean that.
It's got very strong lines in the design.
Excellent.
I wouldn't mind one of them myself. It looks like it would hold a lot of shopping. :D

PS Don't let Blue test drive it, he's a bit of a stunt man :wink: :lol:

Good lookin' motor.

Bet it packs everything you need for a weekend away.

Toyota's have a very solid and relaible reputation on these shores, apart from a blip with the accelorator pedal elcronics a few years ago.

I think it's a man's car too as far as styling goes.
It looks quite spacious and strong.

But you know some of the aussie men.
They would choke if a word of praise came out of their mouths. :wink:

Although Blue came close...'
but I find them strangely appealing for some reason :D
