One of the biggest issues that some people have with the FJ is the relatively large blindspots that are present, especially on the passenger side of the truck. You can get around that to some extent by having your mirrors adjusted properly, but it can be an issue under some circumstances. Backing out of parking spots is where I have the greatest difficulty, as you can not always see the traffic coming (particularly on the passenger side).
Other than that, the FJ is a great truck to drive and a lot of fun in the mud.
