    I picked up a 99 Lexus LX 470 today for Connie

    short version, found it sitting for sale right next to the widows house(who I was going to see) I got the green 82 fj40 from......so I felt it was ment to be.

    All service+ done by Lexus. 119,000 on it, paid $18K. seeing how she only puts less than 10K a year on a cruiser it should last for along time.

    We are looking for a set of stock wheels to replace the aftermarket ones...........even a Pimp and Ho aint cool with those ;)

    Looks like Connies 90 fj62 will prolly be going to my best friends wife, so it can hang out with the old Jimiwag 45LV. Connie wanted to keep it but I know she would never drive it........she agreed.

    Connie's been good girl........but she is gonna have to turn a few tricks to pay for this :grinpimp:

    Somehow I don't think Connie's going to be reading this thread.

    Nice purchase John, Now you need a LX450 to balance the stable

    to say Connie is happy is an understatement, she started crying last night beacuse she couldnt believe I got the LX for her.........

    I don't know why she couldn't beleive it, she is a great girl and she deserved it :)

    I mean hey............look what she had on for a hoody :D

    I realized last night that the 90 fj62 was kinda the Lexus of the 60 series, only fitting then to get the LX470.

    my mad master plan is. find Oem wheels for the LX, then my 33" BFG will go on the LX, then my UZJ will get one size bigger BFG. ARB Sahara bar will come off the UZJ, get powdercoated body color and go on the LX, then a black ARB deluxe bar for the UZJ.........and toss the running boards(actaully thats prolly gonna happen this week) See there was a ulterior motive for getting the LX :D

    I also guess you could look at it as I bought Connie a Cruiser ring :)
