There's not really a "hate on" for the FJC, but I have spent quite a bit of time driving both a stock and modded FJC both on and off road. My biggest issue is that Toyota didn't make it into what they COULD have. It is essentially another body on a Taco or 4runner type chassis. There is nothing amazing about them on or off pavement. I had hopes for more.
I just think when the first prototype was announced, they were hyping it as a rebirth of the 40 series, which it is not. It has more in common with the Sienna than a 40! For the most part, that is a good thing. 40s would not sell well beyond the enthusiast market. That might be true of 70s as well, but the 76 can be had nicely blinged up, with a V8 or D4D in most other parts of the world. I guess I am still disappointed that we weren't offered that platform instead.
