      r2m replied to the thread Hypertech Speedometer Calibrator.
      Just looked up Hypertech Speedometer Calibrator and they specify ALL our GX's! And you say it didn't work?? Hummm. Something sounds hinky.

      So all that work was for not? Just curious, why do you think it'll work on older GX's? Do you mean GX470 or the '10 - '13's? My guess unless you had a 2022 or newer and it didn't work on that, then maybe, and that's a big maybe, it'll work on...

      Here’s the difference when I had it mounted to my 2020 GX with the OEM hitch receiver
    • r2m
      I think it was the camera angle making it look like the fuelpax was touching - it has about a half inch gap, doesn’t hit the chrome at all. You could mount it lower, I have a secondary hitch mounted (to use a bike rack when towing) to the...

      AHC = Automatic Height Control. It's the hydraulic lift capability system on the LX570.

      Do a search for "jakemccurdy" on this forum. He's done quite a few Youtube videos on his GX and usually posts them here, one of them was suspension. I think he did an Ironman suspension that wasn't too high, 2 inch maybe? His videos are called...

      It must depend on the wheeling :). My 1/8" steel ARB's have some bends and dings but have overall held up just fine. I've hit some rocks hard and drug them over some berms, but haven't yet high-centered on a rock. I'm also not rockcrawling my GX...

      I recommend against 1/8”… hence the beefier build.

      Most of my biggest dings are on the tranny and gas tank skids, think break-over point. I don't see the point of aluminum skids. :meh:

      Using the 2022 Luxury VIN I searched the three or the four parts sections for the Off Road Package. When I purchased ours I made sure we got the Multi View and Panoramic Monitor since it seemed to be the one component of the ORP that was...

      Because I'm an idiot and spend entirely too much on swapping out wheels - the TRD Pros are temporary and borrowed from my brother as I have another set on the way...

      255/75R17’s (32 inch) on FJ Cruiser steelies - minor rub that needs the fender liner heated/massaged - I’m about to put a small 2” lift on it and waiting for cbi sliders to eventually be delivered but happy for now

      That fuel can is looking pretty close to your chrome trim. Is it possible to mount the jerry a wee bit lower, just below the chrome trim? Or is it all just camera perspective?

      Actually yesterday I sent my wife a link to slightly used GX460 and a LX570. I’m trying to get her to bite. She wants something more luxurious than her 4runner. I’ll keep y’all posted 😂 And you know I’m going to lift it and throw 35s on either one 💪

      r2m replied to the thread Builds 2017 GX 460.
      Well.... At least you always have the option of purchasing another GX, maybe a newer one, less miles, more options??? Or see if you can do a trade. Trade someone your 4R for a GX that's newer and fewer miles than the 4R AND have them pay you a...

      Well it was cold and windy. We lost power between 7pm-3am. Luckily we have a wood fire stove to keep us warm. Side note, new owner of the gx sent me a picture and I really wish I went with my gut and sold the 4runner instead 😆 😢

      Agreed with GXO. Also, with a dedicated off roader, when push comes to shove, the budget is tight, guess what goes first. If you have a well built daily driver (like mine), you shouldn't ever have to be hit by that question, of what do I get rid...

      High level advice: If you want to do those things, I would do what you are planning. Take a course. Get a lift and tires. Sliders and skids. Go wheel. That isn't a new SUV and I think a lot of folks find wheeling a GX as "beating on it" but...

      Have a 79 FJ40 and a 96 FZJ80. I've done a lot of OEM retro fitting on the 80.

      Can't find a price or installation for the GX's. I'm guessing, since they're offering $200.00 off, the price is probably close to $2,00.00 for everything.

      Congrats and welcome to the forum! With 15+ years and 1800+ posts, what rigs have you had?

      Just the old saying, "Cut twice, measure once"....... er.... "Measure twice, cut once!" Use painters (blue) tape as a cut line and find a common point that's higher on your bumper (headlights, grill, etc.) to measure down from so all your...

      They get driven more than Jeeps. Jeeps are often 3rd, 4th or 5th vehicles. For instance a Jeep is more likely to get cross-shopped with a boat or a jet ski.
