      Prior to my 2020 LC HE, I owned 3 G wagons, a 2014 G550, 2016 G550, and 2017 G63. They were truly wonderful vehicles and I found the fit and finish to be excellent. All 3 were very solid with pretty much no squeaks or rattles. It should be...

      If it’s Android 10, has Bluetooth 5.0, and has 128GB of ROM, that sounds like newer hardware, but it would be wise to verify what CPU (the Amazon listing says TS10) it has before buying and make sure there’s a good return policy. If it’s Android...

      I’ve gotten the impression that a high percentage of owners here bought their 200 series (both LX and LC) used, so the typical Toyota vs Lexus demographic differences may not apply. I had previously purchased a 2006 LX470 new, but only because I...

      I’m not convinced the number of LX570 owners has anything to do with recommending the 300 series platform. The LX570 and LC200 have a lot more in common than the LX570 and LX600 do.

      Seems to me you just need a bigger garage. :meh:

      Well, more data and different perspective and all very good perspective. Thank you for all the commentary and opinions. I am going to stick with the plan of waiting for it to come in and have my wife drive it if she likes it we will buy it, if...

      For those who want to add CarPlay and don’t want to switch to a Tesla style complete head unit replacement, I have a used EC module for 2016+ LC’s that I no longer need as I switched to a Tesla style unit in my 2020 HE. Contact me via PM with an...

      Deeper sockets would require some fabrication as there isn’t much space to work with between the Gamiviti panel and the plastic panel it attaches to. That was the potential advantage of the higher profile version @nakman had been considering.
    • greynolds
      @nakman has links to many of the items a bunch of us are using on the product page on his site, along with a few videos showing how to install the product. For the arms, once I saw and tried the 67designs products, I'll probably never use RAM's...

      Just a guess, but those grommets may be for wire protection.

      I've really enjoyed mine. I was originally also going to remove the mounting balls, but in practice, I use it every time I drive to clip my phone to. It has unexpectedly become one of my most used accessories. Highly recommended mod!

      The screen going back to Nav is a setting on the radio. I cant remember what its called, but I changed it on my 2014 to stay on the screen I select a few weeks ago.

      Also all of the above as it’s my only vehicle.

      So the Zlink apk file I pointed you to didn't work? If so, that really stinks. Having to send the unit back to them is incredibly inconvenient both because of the distance and how disruptive it is to being able to use the LC in the meantime...

      Those fuse taps plug into one fuse location and have 2 fuse holders. One of the fuses takes the original fuse and handles the original circuit. The other fuse is for the new (tapped) circuit. So the original circuit will be fully functional...

      Yeah, the EC Offroad guys are decent people, it's just really hard to justify paying the premium they charge as a buyer in the USA. Someone in Australia may get far more benefit out of the extra cost that may help justify paying the premium...

      Our USA LC’s are what they call Sahara in Australia. Keep in mind that EC Off-road charges a pretty big premium - the same Tesla style unit can be bought from AlI Express for about $800 shipped. Also budget about $100 for Sergey’s custom...

      Well I for one am not going to make a “wont stay up” joke in your time of need.

      Thanks for starting this thread. I decided to do the same thing, so your parts list saved me some time. For the M6 bolt, I purchased the same set you went with. The shortest (60mm) bolts are plenty long enough. I ended up adding a few extra...

      My 2c, use the warranty while you can. You paid for it. Instead of second guessing and trying to "help" the dealer out, let them deal with it. You should be told *upfront* if the repair is covered or not under the warranty even if that means you...

      Maybe add a diff filler hole strainer? :rofl: Sorry Man, couldn't help myself. I'm sure my list of :doh: things is way longer than yours.
    • greynolds
      WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER! Filled the diff with 5w-30, removed the drain plug and plugged the drain hole with my finger, quickly grabbed the shop vac, and covered the drain plug with the hose. Big thank you to everyone for the input and...

      greynolds reacted to UPR LC's post in the thread The BIG TRIP - What would you take? with Like Like.
      My only other advise is to do all your preventative maintenance well in advance of your ship date. That way you can test the new parts and make sure you do not have any issues with the new parts or work before you leave. I never like doing...

      greynolds replied to the thread Headlight Auto Leveling help.
      Did you actually get the old battery and the alternator tested first or just randomly replace the battery? Randomly replacing stuff will get expensive unless you get lucky. It sort of sounds like it may have been time to replace the battery...
