I think we also have to be realistic about money invested here. A new fj costs 25 to 35 thousand and up. For that kind of money invested in a yj you could do an incredible amount to fix whatever "problems" the jeep had from the factory. I also agree that these are very different cars built with very different consumers in mind.

You can not compare fj with a YJ. Not even TJ. The only one that belongs to that segment is a JK. compare those. And I agree, if I had 26k + sitting for a fj I'd buy a YJ or TJ and rigged it up for the rest of the money. No fj with any amount of toys on it would ever come close to that rig in reliability, capabilities, versatility, and functionality after I'm done with it. believe me.

Being normal is just crazy!

fj. vs. jeep

Neither of these vehicles are perfect, but as a master mechanic who has worked on all different makes and models I can tell you that even the the landrover has its problems, air ride suspension failures, head gaskets etc, also saying they use them in countries like africa and asia is because of their high standards is really ignorant, africa uses the landrover most frequently because south africa is controlled and heavily inhabited by great britain. The truth is that most countries outside of the U.S. really don't import many american vehicles, the landcruiser of old isn't the same as it is now but even the older ones had their issues, also the terrain is different, landrover's and fj's do better in terrain with tall grass, water mud etc but without modification aren't that great in high mountains with very rocky terrain as is found in the states, very different vehicles for different situations both are good or bad depending on what you want! Everyone likes their own stuff.

Another reason Rovers and Land Cruisers are so popular in other parts of the world is they are built on a heavier chassis and can hold the fuel, water and supplies to last for a week in the African wilderness.

But, what do I know? I'm just an Overgrown, Immature, American Kid

My YJ is a lot more comfy than my FJ was. As far as abilities on the trails and such, the FJ won (sorry guys). That thing would climb a brick wall. You could sit in the engine compartment to work on the engine. It's 48 gallon tank would take you anywhere, but the 3 speed tranny meant you wouldn't get there fast. The 2 point seat belts, not the safest, but the seatbelt free jump seats in the back.....kiss your a$$ goodbye.



Was a fun thing to drive. Living in St Thomas now
