    2017 GX 460 for North Central Appalachia

    I grabbed an off-lease 2017 GX 460 Premium with 26k miles in April 2021. It happens to be a “Certified Pre-Owned Lexus” for whatever that is worth which is probably a topic for a separate thread. I was coming off of a rusted-out 2007 FJ that I didn’t properly inspect for rust when I purchased it...

    1993 KZJ78 Build

    First, I would like to thank everyone who has posted info here for fellow Prado/Land Cruiser II owners. I purchased this KZJ78 a few weeks ago from a German who used it to go on Safari here in Botswana. He kept pretty good maintenance records on it so I felt comfortable buying something this...

    Builds Bought our newborn a Toy

    I recently became a father and thought of doing something for my son. Initially I thought about putting some money away for him. Although I will probably do that anyways I thought building a Land Cruiser that I can give him when he grows up would be more special. Plus they're going up in value...

    FJ80 in KC

    Been on the mud forums for a while and a bit of a Toyota guy. Did this build on a Tundra the last several years. It is mainly an overlanding setup I built as a hunting rig. ARE shell, rack, Decked drawers, sliding platform, Iron Man lift on 35-in KO2s. It works like I need it to work. I’ve been...

    Zane’s ‘97 LX450 build - Project Utah Desert Yeti

    Shoutout to @Box Rocket on all the advice he’s given to me this past year. After researching the ‘legends’ of off-roading it was an easy choice between an 80 and older 4runner, so I picked this up for $5000 July 2020 with 206,xxx miles. Cashmere Beige. Non-locked (no front or rear lockers). All...

    Long travel LX570

    Well I got the tundra LT arms on with factory shocks. AHC completely in tact. I've moved the ride hight up 4 in by adding hiem joints in place of factory AHC connection links.... this allows you to lift above limitations. The lower shock mounts were moved up 1 in with the design of the...

    1996 LX450

    Many of you guys chimed in when I was contemplating a 40th Anniversary series outside of Portland. In the hunt though I found a 1996 LX 450 in Bend and flew out there this morning and picked it up. The pics made it look like it was in amazing condition, it wasn't quite "amazing" and...

    Sold my first FJ60 a year ago but still have the FJ blood coursing thru my veins so picked up this one last weekend. Too much rust, actually, but hey. It was $800, interior is like new, and engine isn't locked up. Giddyup.....

    My HJ60 Build

    So I have had my 60 for about a year now and have decided to start a build thread on it, to help keep track of what I've done and share it with you guys. I Don't really use it for wheeling, just my DD, do a lot of towing and driving round the farm. so my 'build' isn't really a restoration or...

    Hello, I'm new to the GXOR world, but not new to building performance vehicles! I was shopping for a 4th Gen V8 4Runner last November to daily drive and occasionally tow my 240SX money-pit I have owned and daily driven since 2007. After having a vehicle sold out from under me and several other...

    BluezClues Build '79 RN37 Pickup

    BluezClues build. Name hit me as it was the favorite tv show of my cousin who passed away right before the end of 2019. Having been in a wheelchair all his life, he would have enjoyed riding in some larger wheels the same color as his favorite tv show character. I didn’t do a build thread on my...

    What have I done.....81 FJ60 aka Tetanus

    Well I'm usually the guy who figures out he wants a certain classic 5 years after they become popular and decent examples become expensive and the rest are a ton of work. I decided I wanted a 60 bad enough to take on a pretty big project. I doubt it's the most rusty but it's definitely going to...

    My progression over the coming years with an interesting forty

    I’m going to be posting to this thread with my progression of my truck. This truck is my first car that I bought when I was 15.It is a 1979 (sike, turns out it’s a 77) BJ40 diesel. I bought it from a guy in Costa Rica who restored a ton of stuff back to factory spec. I got a killer deal on it...

    CAM’s 2016 GX460 Build

    I’m glad to jump back on this site after 14 years of owning a Mustang and an almost unmentionable Altima. I guess the kiddos toys were more important than dad’s toys. BUT... that’s all changing now. The information I’ve already found here is really invaluable as building up a GX is not as...
