    Sorry for the delayed response. I installed the bags. Work great. 7 psi lifted "stock" position for normal driving without towing. 10-12psi raises 1.5 to 2 inches for trailer sag. I did not use the OEM compressor. I wanted more control.

    Switch to disable VSC

    I need to install one. Leaving my neighborhood side street in winter there is often hard packed snow six feet in front of me. When accelerating from a stop to merge onto the highway the VSC kicks in when I hit that patch of snow. I know it is there and prepare for it but the VSC catches me...

    Builds Coop's GX470

    Hey Bruce, my recommendation is to leave as-is with the exception of the below quoted items. Then put a price that you are comfortable with. List for sell earlier than you need - there is always someone out there that wants a "turn-key" 470 and is willing to pay the price - you may just need...

    Any GX470 Part-outs?

    Check the u-pull-it in Albuquerque, NM. I know a GX470 that was involved in a front collision. Maybe it is sitting there? Owner did not strip it. I did take the wiper sensor on windshield before he released the vehicle.

    If you are going to run heavy with a winch, bumper, rear drawer system, tire carrier - expedition type rig - cannot go wrong with OME. I blew a front stabilizer and had an OME replacement the next day (thanks Kurt at CruiserOutfitters). My 80-series was heavy, OME was perfect.

    I have ran OME on a hilux, FJ40, and an 80. OME does ride stiff but no complaints. For the GX470 I am going to go with Dobinsons twin tube shocks with a progressive rate rear spring. I tow a small trailer so I am going to install Airlift 1000 bags. I looked at Radflo and Icon but do not need...
