Sure, they're definitely two different things, but my Subaru is still my writer daily driver in the mountains. For what I need I couldn't justify an FJ.
Yep same engine and tranny from the Tacoma , the frame and some of the chassis parts comes from the Land Cruiser line.

There are for sure times when we miss the Outback(its taken us through some gnarly shit) but I've always wanted a Jeep and there are places I wanted to go last year in the Wasatch that I just didn't feel like braving with the Suby.

That and when we move across country from Minnesota to Utah(in the winters) we just didn't have enough space in the outback and hauling a trailer wasn't really an option. The FJ gives us WAY more vertical storage and we can attach a floating trailer on the hitch too which gives us allot of additional storage for our fall\spring migrations.
