[QUOTE=NY-TJ;6465]Always thought it was important to start at the very core of this product and that's the classic FJ. The most recent FJ was nice but not a true successor the classic FJ we all love.
Just have a look at this infographic, anyones appreciation for the TJ will grow!
I have no doubt that as a crossover the appreciation for this concept will grow.
However as a successor to the classic FJ this crossover will never fit the bill. Let's be honest, with unibody construction and suspension limitations this will not be the go anywhere do anything vehicle we all want it to be. The FJ Cruiser as it stands now is light years closer to being a successor to the classic FJ just in the off-road capabilities.
I yearn for a true successor to the classic FJ, and that's not because I'm not a Jeep fan. The FJ Cruisers keep up with the Jeeps to a point and the ones that can go toe to toe with other models in the same class are modified to do so.
I like the TJ as a crossover but Toyota will have to go back to the drawing board and build something body on frame, solid axles front and rear, bullet proof drivetrain that the classic FJ was known for to hit the mark.
