You should consider the fact its one of the most well built SUV's on the market and could very well be a great long term vehicle for you. In a way its a multi-tool of a vehicle. Hard to find anyone limited by what the 4Runner can/can't do. In addition they are good enough that people have no problem buying them used.I looked at the 4Runner too, but with a base-price of $34,410 it is just out of my reach and it just doesn't have the same appeal as an FJ. The FT-AC would hit that affordable yet fun sweet spot for people like me.
