I've never owned one but worked at a Toyota dealership. Personally I'd buy a 4Runner over a FJC for the extra space and surprisingly better MPG. Mechanically they are basically identical.
That said I like the way they drive/look and if I was a single 25 yr old again would probably like owning one. If you plan to put anyone in the back seat regularly revert to my original statement.
