Any thoughts? How expensive are rebuild kits? Etc...
@Rustedpalm , sorry but pass on that one and anything with 50K or more miles. Around Seattle to Portland, I regularly see couple great FJRs with only 20K or 30K miles on them.

Love my 2005 but she does heat up when in the summer heat in stop-n-go traffic.

I recommend a 2006 or newer as you have improvements over the Gen I's.

Keep at it.
