    Have a few questions about new FJs that I'd rather not deal with local salesmen for right now.

    Yes, a Rubicon is a better vehicle.

    Rubicon is what, $40k+? Lets just say the FJ will be considerably cheaper in our situation.

    Mainly how the colors and matching roofs work with the TRD and TT packages. The website isn't completely clear.

    I can't help you with the fj but when I lived in Lubbock we bought a Toyota and got a much better deal in new Mexico. If I recall all toyotas sold in Texas are sold through "gulf state Toyota" and this automatically added quite a bit. They justify it by adding pin stripes, rust protector underneath etc. I discovered this because the invoice prices did not match what I was seeing online.

    We bought our sequoia at Permian Toyota, the guy there said Texas buyers are a huge portion of their sales. The first step inside the dealership was to buy the car, we did it all on the phone. If I recall we paid 1-200 over invoice. If they were still as close to me, that's how I'd do it.

    Not sure if any of this is still true,but it was in 2004.

    Never shopped for one, how much are they?

    Edit: I came up with $39,565. Close enough.
