So new here and live in Birmingham and Atlanta. Picked up an '05 GX with 200k in white a few months ago. Planning some light overlanding, exploration trips and slowly gathering parts to make her mine. Figured I'd just make a thread with all my updates and or questions and more! Also find me on ig @Chompsticks

1st question is, what kind of maintenance should I expect or do around this mileage?
- Water pump and timing belt were done at 190k,
- Rear airbags were replaced, but I believe the sensor is bad (removing it anyways)

What has been done
- Pioneer 4400NEX (best investment so far with the wireless carplay)
- Well window visors
- Hewitt bypass kit
- WeatherTech Mats

Things to come very soon (ordered)
- 3" Dobinson lift kit
- Dobinson upper control arms
- 285/70/17 Falken Wildpeaks
- Method Racing MR701 in Bronze

What I want
- Everything!

Day I picked her up

Dash is cracked, but thankfully right on the edge of the dash that I hardly notice it

First off-road trip to Stoney Lonesome OHV park in Alabama as well as the added visors, which will prolly get ripped off on a trail one day. Hah

i would go ahead and put some new valve cover gaskets and oil seals for the coil packs ( in the valve covers) i would bet good money yours are hard as rock if not already leaking.

I'll have to take a look at that, Never done a valve cover before on my own, but it doesn't really seem all that difficult.
