I would like to get my son an FJ40 or FJ Cruiser RC kit for his seventh birthday. Can anyone suggest a complete kit for about $150 or less?:)

$150 is a pretty tight budget for a good RC. You could probably get another cheaper Nikko or similar RC truck from Wallyworld or similar and put a FJ-40 body on it and stay in thiat price range. Do you already have a radio? If so I found this (http://cgi.ebay.com/TAMIYA-RC-Toyota-Land-Cruiser-40-CR01-Kit_W0QQitemZ200319453770QQcmdZViewItemQQptZRadio_Control_Vehicles?hash=item200319453770&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72:1205|66:2|65:12|39:1|240:1318|301:1|293:1|294:50) on Ebay....great price on a really decent kit.

Thanks UB. I really don't want to spend more than $150 including the radio. I did see the eBay item already. Hmmm...:thumb:

You could probably get that kit and score a radio that some is selling because they upgraded to a better one. Still out of your price range but I bet dads been a good boy too and being equal partners in the ownership of a great hobby is justifiable!

A little over your $150 limit and I don't think these would compete with the Tamiya version but they are dang cool, and huge :)

I bought the red one a couple years ago for my Father's day gift...Still sitting in the box of course :doh:
