    Here is my thread from earlier in the year when I was mulling over the issues - possibly it will be of help to you. As you can see I went from 'not doing a dual battery system', to 'yeah I should do...

    Sunroofs definitely steal headroom, I just don't know how much in this case. There are very few vehicles I can drive comfortably with a sunroof, and some I can't drive even without a sunroof.

    With the seat at it's lowest position my head was jammed against the rim that goes around the sunroof. Not even close to something I would live with.

    I wasn't comparing the FJ to a school bus, I was saying that a school bus manages to get around fine even with "blind spots" that totally obliterate rearward vision. Therefore the alleged blind spots...

    People who complain about "blind spots" don't know how to use their mirrors. Try driving a school bus and you'll get the idea :)

    I don't know anything about 'fender apron tears', first I've heard about it. But I've been keeping an eye on FJ build threads and such with an eye toward a possible future purchase.

    I'm going to try a Larsen whip for now, but that Nagoya looks interesting. Is it 1/2 wave? I can't find any indication one way or another.

    There are some first gens that had Aisin transmissions that are quite good. The GM auto tranny in most Troopers is OK if maintained properly, but not many people maintain their transmissions properly.
