    Having owned both (07 GX/15 LX), I would hands down tell you the 200 is a better vehicle. I was offroading my GX before it became the hip thing to do and while they are nice vehicles, they are not landcruisers. Parts on the 200/LX are tougher, more durable, and carry more credence throughout the world.

    I have a 15LX570 now that I have absolutely put through the ringer. I was with the 200 crew @smittycrusher mentioned and the truck was fine with them even though I looked like the red-headed stepchild (which am in the group). The LX interior is hands down nicer, but trade off is AHC with LX. If you dont want to lift it (aside from sensor lift) you can fit 35s with some cutting and minor adjustments.

    If you get the GX, you'll always want the 200- that's just how this works, esp since you've been eyeing them. Last thing you want to do is have buyers remorse after spending that kind of money. Dollar for dollar, the 200/LX is hands down more value and stature than posting pics on IG with a built GX photo-editing the chit out of the color saturation/softness and breaking a cardinal sin of leaving your winch line exposed and connected incorrectly/haphazardly.

    I would seriously consider the 200 to be to the GX like the GX is to a 4runner. One is clearly tougher and more heavy duty than the other, but with a bunch of money any of them can be turned into something stupid.

    Scott, bringing out the whole 200 series crew!! Good to hear from some owners of both 150/200s. I saw the pictures on mud and Instagram of the 200 event... I really want to go next year lol. These pictures of 200s pretty much sealed the deal for me. Built about as much as I’d need. 7D9F3696-066C-46A4-B76C-89F8784B4C45.jpeg BCF14B90-DF35-4A1D-8389-4722D3D87386.jpeg 35E23F17-4C1A-4EBD-83C7-235304F02311.jpeg 49166A1B-9717-4C9D-81D5-793401DD86B2.jpeg

    If you like the light colored or white 200's, this one is really nicely built. Not for sale but great for inspiration.

    I don't know anything about GX's so can't comment on that. I'm sure they are nice but...

    F-THAT s*** Buy a forty! I thought I taught you better than that! Better yet a highly modified 45 for the money you swinging dicks are throwing around!!! Maybe a nice Durango is what you really desire! 20180816_140442.jpg

    Went through similar myself, and ended up with a '17 LC last week. Just do it.

    Y'all are going to cost me a lot of money with those built 200 pics. Planning to get there, but with time. First, need to get these all-seasons off.

    9DFE3223-F295-4497-8411-1DA7D93D165B.jpeg I took my brother to check out the grey 200 at lunch a few weeks ago that I was going to buy my wife and dump her 2015 4Runner. My brother bought it out from under me! He dumped his 2003 100 series and said it was the best car decision he has ever made... My wife said that she was ok keeping her car and that I have a problem and do not screw with her car.... o welll
    Here they are togeather,,,, Get one and do not look back!

    What is considered a reasonable amount of miles for a good used 200? Is there a sweet spot? Do these run forever like the previous Cruisers?

    I think it is too soon to tell. I was looking at them 2 yrs ago and it was $33k for about 100k mikes and reasonably clean truck. It would be interesting to survey mud owners.

    Are there any known serious problems to be concerned about?

    This is where I was on the one I just bought. It is an 11 with 95,000 on it. $32,000 and the governments share. I took it to north Ga. this weekend on forest service roads to get my GF eased into off road.

    The cup holder is broken and a set of wipers. That is it. Has a new radiator and has a pretty good service history. Appears to have been a soccer mom mobile for most of its life.
