This is an attempt to put together a cohesive list of build products that work for the GX 460, preferably ones that are made for the GX 460 specifically and not generic items like tires or lights. This will be a continual project for me, and if you would like to comment with ideas I will add information accordingly. Please provide part numbers or a link if you have them for any suggestions. I am starting with basic links only at first but will add more information over time. This thread will only be items that have been confirmed work with the GX460 platform, not ones that might work. I will be listing products by manufacturer, not supplier (unless they are the same), but if you have installation instructions in a thread or link I can try to add that. Approved IH8MUD vendors are also welcome to post in the comments with product information and links. If products are generation-specific I will indicate that where possible. For your reference, 1st Gen is 2010-2013, and 2nd Gen is 2014-2019. Everything will be in the order in which I add them, not in order of preference.

List of Build Threads:

Here are some additional front bumpers, as I was starting to put a list together to mainly group complete bolt-on and cutting the front bumper options.


I like your complete page style better, but feel free to grab the others from the link.

Can you add these Ironman recovery points?

Thanks!
I don't see why not, it's specified for the GX460 and are rated at 11,000 lbs. Did you look at the PDF installation manual? That will show you everything you need to know about them.
The only added comment I have is if you have or are planing to add steel bumpers. Most steel bumpers come with recovery points for shackles so purchasing these would be a waste of money since you'd just be replicating what's on the bumper.

Ironman makes a ton for the GX460. Suspension, bumpers, snorkles, drawers, roof racks... I just installed the Foam Pro kit on my 16 GX and it leveled the truck out nicely and rides great.

This post is for bolt on lower side moldings without the step. This enables one to replace their side step, rocker panels to add rock sliders without cutting their side steps off.

@TX GX460, i think there may be a mix up with the Kaon links posted up top. The Kaon website shows a Light Cargo Roof Shelf (the tray style that hangs below and parallel to the roofline) and a Light Cargo Pet Barrier (vertical pet barrier parallel to and above the 2d row seat back.)

"Cargo Management / Netting:

The link for the Light cargo pet barrier points to the Rear roof shelf: Here is the link to the Light Cargo Pet Barrier:



Thanks for your efforts. I was unaware of the Kaon products and really like them.
