    Local has a 2008 with 70k miles on it. Maintained at dealer for the most part. Odyssey battery. 5 new Toyo open country A/T tires. Gold in color and like new in and out. Drove it around town and on the freeway. Quiet, tight, etc.

    Guy is asking $34000 for it. Good deal?

    Would be selling my 80 series to buy this and would jump on it in a heartbeat, but am wondering about the off road ability of it. Running trail difficulty 3 to 4 in Moab.

    Thoughts and opinions welcomed. I need to get back to him tomorrow as I think the rig will sell quickly.

    A Moab 4 will be easily done in a stock 200. A stock 200 (with tires) can do a 6 rating with only bumper scrapes. For a 7 you'll want a winch.

    I’m buying a 2008 LX570 with 85k for $30.5k. So, yes, it’s a good deal. The only issue for most would be that it’s gold. If you like it pull the trigger. It will get scooped by someone by Monday if you don’t. I lost 3 waiting a day too long this bout the deal.

    Going to pull the trigger tomorrow. Can't really afford to let this one go by, I don't think.

    If you hate the color, you can always do a vehicle wrap. Nice ones run about 3-4K. A decent paint job with no body work is at a minimum $10k.

    Congratulations. Good solid buy. When I got my 08 it had about the same miles on it, gold as well. I thought the color was interesting at first but love it now. Amazing job hiding dirt and scratches too. Post some pics!

    I believe those fender flares are indicative of a Texas/Gulf Land Cruiser.

    Are they easily removable or permanently affixed?

    Yes, just adhesive. But the fender may have some galling

    Sounds like a good deal to me. If you're not thrilled with the color, you might find it transforming to put some dark graphite or dark bronze wheels on it.

    I bought an Idaho ‘08 myself. How’s the underside? Any rust?
