The dealer stated the FJC has a white roof because it is an offroad vehicle for safaris. If you are ever stuck and someone needs to see you from above, you can. He also mentioned something about ducktaping an X on the top if you out there and need helicoptor assistance in a jungle of course.

I think the white roofs are badass, especially in hot places. If you have a black or dark colored rig, and actually spend A LOT of time on the trail in the sun, white is pretty awesome.

Lol! I have the Voodoo Blue FJ and it really does look like the porta potty... The white roof is definitely sticking to heritage also just like ^ @Negra said, its probably best to have a white roof in hot climates

I always loved the white roof, it's retro. However, it requires a lot of waxing. I don't think it was 2 staged cleared, more of a single stage integrated clear.

The real question is why aren't jeep underbodies Orange? Wouldn't they be easier to spot rolled over from a rescue helicopter.

To my knowledge, the white roof is a throwback to the retro.

One may ask, Why was the retro white?

Because the old tops were fiber glass which was difficult to paint. at the time.

Look at a photo of an FJ Cruiser next to an FJ-40 from the same perspective and you'll see the similarities between the two: round headlights, bezel with TOYOTA in block letters, the intake on the front of the hood, white top, the cursed vertical windshield, etc. There's a decent picture of a blue FJ-40 sitting next to a blue FJ Cruiser on the ih8mud forum, but I don't want to link it here. I love the styling of the FJ Cruiser and the white top on the one I had. I still have the white top on my 1964 FJ-40.

I really didnít know much about 4WD SUVís back in the day and might have did the same thing, but knowing what I know now about the FJ/4Runner and the XterraÖ I would not let the roof color prevent me from buying a FJ.
