Mudders -

Well I suppose at some point, for those of you who know me, this thread was inevitable. On Friday (11/13/20) I picked up a 2015 LX570, CPO and worked in a 2-year extension to the 2-year / 20,000 mile maintenance / warranty program. I have been hunting (and that is the right word) for a 200 Series for the last several years and had a few specifics - Under 75k miles, less than 5 years old, and had to be gray. I have been scouring the internet for both Land Cruisers and LX570s, so when this one popped up literally down the street...I had to jump. My friend at Lexus called me and told me it was traded in on a new 2020...I literally said, "it's mine I will be there in 30 minutes".

The specifics:

2015 LX570 just under 75,000 miles, Nebula Gray Pearl exterior and Parchment interior. Date of first use was March 2, 2015 and while it was just over 5-years old, everything else was perfect. Options are: 2Q, LL, ML, PA, RS, V2, and V4. The truck was in perfect shape:

I always check the crevices - that tells the story of the vehicle:

Next to the 100 Series:

So, what is planned for the LX570? Well, this is going to be my daily as the 100 Series is going to be reserved for fun trips and teaching with 7P; as such, the "build" will be pretty mild...or at least that is what I have told my lovely bride.

As of today, I have ordered the following:

1. Trail Tailor Hidden Winch Mount
2. Warn 9.5XPS
3. Factor 55 Hawse Fairlead
4. BFG AT KO2 - 285/55/20
5. ARB Recovery Points
6. ARB Rear Drawers

I may add an OEM spacer to the front and back but, we will see. Next up will probably be Slee sliders but, we will see how it does with the new shoes. I will update this thread with installs, additions, and trips.

Cheers.

Congrats. Beautiful truck. I also have a 2015 that I pucked up last year with 65k on the clock. I love it and am very happy with my purchase. Mine is Parchment over Silver... I would have gotten the NGP but That was my last Lexus ride and wanted aomething different, but yours is a fantastic color combo!

Interior is immaculate! Like showroom immaculate - And that’s a hard color to maintain! It was pampered to say the least.

Always love to hear the previous owner traded in for a newer version.

subscribed.

btw - do you have a 100 build?

November 22, 2020 Update:

I had 285/55/20 BFG AT KO2s installed on Friday and this reinforces my opinion that BFG ATs should come stock on Land Cruisers / LXs. They definitely increase the "planted" feeling of the vehicle. I'm running 42 PSI, had no issue fitting the spare, and they balanced out really well with just a few ounces on each. We immediately road-tripped on Saturday and knocked out 500 miles, smooth as silk.

Tires look great.
Stupid question, but is that the “correct” way to mount the spare?
Mine is mounted "face-up" which makes it a pain if the spare ever needs air. Not sure if there is a "correct" way.

Good question, I've always mounted mine that way so I can clean it during car washings and check air pressure without having to lower it. I'm not sure if there is a factory correct way, I'll look at the manual.
