 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser - Donít bother bidding if you donít understand what youíre getting yourself into.  You see, this monster canít be reined in by just anyone.  No, this colossus on 4 wheels can only be harnessed by those of superior strength and virility. The first time I drove the Cruiser, a fully formed Viking beard spontaneously erupted from my face. Iím certain that lesser menís heads would simply have exploded from the overdose of awesome.  Do not try to corral this demon unless you are completely sure of your manhood.  

This behemoth is the definition of a mobile fortress, featuring an FMF front steel bumper and FMF rear steel bumper with tire holder, Rock sliders, Fender flares, and a 3Ē All Pro lift kit and new suspension. Itís rumored that the Cruiser is the secret location where the President and Vice President are kept safe during times of national crisis, but I can neither confirm nor deny this.

Dark outside? Cruiser donít care. With Halo headlights and LED tail lights, itís like a freaking solar explosion everywhere you go. Actually, thatís giving the sun too much credit. The sun wishes it could put out light like the Cruiser, but instead it just hides 92 million miles away. What a wimp.

I have never driven the Cruiser off road. Oh, but you could.  The Irok Swamper 35Ē tires on Pro Comp wheels can decimate any obstacle standing in their path. With the Cruiserís Warn winch, you could have yourself a tug-o-war against a mountain. Just keep in mind that mountains tend to be sore losers. The Cruiserís Safari snorkel also means itís not afraid of a little mud and water. You know what is afraid? Mud and water. Entire rivers have been known to dry up in the Cruiserís presence.

The Cruiser also has an aftermarket air compressor, factory rear locker and ARB front locker. The sole reason the Cruiser hasnít seen offroad terrain is my serious concern for the wellbeing of the Alaskan wilderness. I doubt anything less than concrete and asphalt could withstand the raging inferno of manliness that radiates from this metallic monstrosity.

The Cruiserís directed remote start also means you donít have to leave your house to start this monster up. This isnít your normal remote start system, though. It was painstakingly reverse engineered from the wreckage of the alien craft found at Roswell. Theoretically, this remote start could transport the Cruiser directly to Alpha Centauri in the blink of an eye. But the Cruiser simply refuses to teleport. Nobody knows why.

The Cruiser is formidable, only a chosen few can master it. But once you assert your dominance and gain the beastís respect, the rewards you reap are truly beyond compare.

*I am required to inform you that pregnant women and women who are breastfeeding should not handle or be near the FJ Cruiser due to the dangers of too much testosterone. They probably shouldnít even look at it. Youíve been warned.

I love this SUV and spent $65,000 on it. But due to having two other cars and some unexpected business issues I am forced to sell it. I have the clear title to the FJ with no lien on it.

If you want this inspected please contact me prior to bidding. I am willing to take it anywhere within Anchorage, Alaska to be inspected at your expense.

I purchased it in February 2012 so it has the remainder of the Toyota warranty on it. But due to serious modifications certain parts of the warranty are most likely void. The aftermarket parts are no longer covered under any warranty that I'm aware of.

Shipping costs are your responsibility. I have shipped cars from Anchorage to Seattle for $800 previously using Alaska Auto Transport (Google it). Of course please check with them, Wrightway Auto (the other local shipper) or your favorite shipper for shipping costs prior to bidding. They should be able to handle shipping nationwide. I'm happy to bring the FJ to any car shipper in Anchorage for you.

As the vehicle is driven once in a while there may be more miles on it than the listing. I also reserve the right to end this auction if I receive a legitimate offer either locally or long distance.

I expect a $1,000 non-refundable deposit within 24 hours of you winning the auction. If this is not received I reserve the right to re list the vehicle. I expect the total amount within 7 days. I will accept wire transfer or certified check.

If you have any questions please contact me through Ebay. I will email you back or include your phone number and I'll call you right away.

Toyota, Ford decide to end hybrid collaboration before it starts

Tue, 23 Jul 2013 15:30:00 EST

Not all so-called Memorandum of Understanding pacts end in actual collaborations. For instance, after a two-year "feasibility study," Toyota and Ford have just announced that they will not be developing hybrid systems for use in light trucks and SUVs as previously planned, and the two automakers will instead continue to develop their own hybrid technology independently.
The would-be collaboration was first announced in August of 2011, and would have seen a rear-wheel-drive hybrid platform that would "improve the efficiency of trucks and SUVs while still allowing them to be driven in the way customers expect," according to our initial post on the topic.
Keep in mind that this announcement isn't to say we shouldn't expect hybrid pickups and SUVs from the two automakers, but that they probably aren't coming very soon - Ford says it will have a system "before the end of this decade" and we haven't heard much from Toyota on the hybrid truck front since the 2008 A-BAT Concept (pictured above) - and that they will not share any components between them (and they never have, for what it's worth).

Nissan, Toyota offering payment deferments to people affected by government shutdown

Tue, 15 Oct 2013 17:30:00 EST

Two weeks into the budget-related government shutdown and it sounds like some progress is finally being made, but that doesn't really help furloughed government employees pay their bills. To help out a little, Nissan and Toyota are joining Hyundai with offering payment deferments to current owners and lessees.
In a release, a Nissan spokesperson said the company is "sympathetic to any of our customers who find themselves in difficult financial circumstances - many times outside of their control."
Both Japanese automakers are allowing payment extensions of up to 90 days without penalties or fees. Unlike the Hyundai Assurance Plan, though, it doesn't seem like the Nissan or Toyota assistance will be extended to those who are still in the buying process. Scroll down for press releases from both companies about their respective payment deferment programs.

Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race Scion FR-S [w/video]

Thu, 07 Mar 2013 15:29:00 EST

Toyota has been hosting its Pro/Celebrity race at the Toyota Grand Prix on Long Beach since 1977. The charity event, which has raised millions of dollars over the years, traditionally pits Hollywood celebrities against professional athletes (including race car drivers) on the full Grand Prix course in modified street vehicles. The short, sprint-style race is popular with the crowds as the amateur drivers race uninhibited - the result is an action-packed race with plenty of excitement and automotive... er... carnage.
Over the decades, the drivers have raced a variety of Toyota products including last year's front-wheel-drive Scion tC. But this year, Toyota announced at the Chicago Auto Show that the new rear-wheel-drive Scion FR-S would be stepping up to the plate. The good news only became better when Toyota Motorsports invited us out to Southern California's Willow Springs Raceway (the same circuit where the drivers train and practice) to be one of the first behind the wheel.
