    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.

    I would like to consider a 4Runner, but for myself they do not have enough headroom. Simple as that.

    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 is sooooo much more that goes into tire design than tread pattern. Compounds, belts, sidewalls...I bet pretty much everything about this tire has been tweaked at least a little, as tire design...

    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.

    Heh, yeah the first gen V6 Troopers weren't any more powerful than the I4 models. But FWIW the V6 models are easy swap candidates for a GM 3.4L, which wakes them up nicely.
