BUY IT! you wont be disapointed. i have an 07. these things are little beasts. compared to the h2s, they can keep right up an even surpass in some spots due to its smaller size. with the torsion bars, its nic eto be able to adjust the highth and level it aout a bit. just add longer front shocks. the ONLY gripe i have is that its a 4sp auto. and i get alot more rock chips in the windo because of its boxiness. it should be a 5 speed. when youre on the hwy or fwy it has a hard time "picking a gear" it eventually SCREAMS in the kickdown all the way up.
im getting about 23mpg in my 6700lbs square box fulltime 4wd....not to bad if you ask me. compared to my buddies 00 cherokee with 31's and he gets about 13-14mpg and i havent even done my first lof yet! wait till i run the thin synthy.. and ive got a bigger tire. ive taken it to the river, had it up to the doors...( sitting in the water while we partied for a few hours) started it up and drove it home. thats an every weekend thing to btw. so its a great all around vehicle. most of the stuff i can even get thru with out putting it in 4hi loc or 4lo loc.
it was this or the fj. and after the research, for the money you get more standard then with the fj. the fj w/ a/t,pw,pl,cc,a/c,4wd,roof rack,and and a base upgrade, was 32,983. i got my 07 h3 w/ a/t,pw,pl,cc,sun roof, roof bars, tow pack, for 28k @ towbin in vegas. so for the extra cash you get more then with the fj...well that depends on what you want to. but make note the fj isnt 4wd standard lik ethe h3. btw, they are VERY COMFY and take onroad pot holes and bumps like pebbles
