Toyota suspends FJ Cruiser trip - maybe just as well
But maybe the suspension's no bad thing. Check the video below, posted on the Top to Bottom website, (fast forward to about 1:07) and you'll see appalling recovery technique (well, it's more the attitude towards recovery), appalling beach driving and what looks like dangerous and thoughtless hooning in the sand dunes. Yes, I know they were lads out for a lark, just like Scotty and Barry in the good old days, but in 2011 this sort of thing just alienates 4WD people even further from the general public. I have huge respect for Toyota, its products and promotions but in this instance I'm wishing they hadn't bothered.
Here's an earlier posting.
