Yep, did paperwork and transfer on a 2000 Lexus LX470 today and should have it on Friday. Three owner with last being 3 years, school teacher and husband is sales director at dealership...fully dealer maintained, new tires, new wheels, new brakes with rotors turned, etc. Every single thing on vehicle is in great shape and works except one motor for telescoping steering wheel...but can be adjusted manually until i decide if I want it to work that much to pay. LOL Pearl white with tan interior...one little scuff on bumper from his wifes sister backing her Denali into it...but it is exceptionally clean and he is having his dealership deliver it to me as well free of charge. 113,000 miles.....Nakamichi stereo system, removed all gold bling, upgraded front grill to 2003/4 year oem parts for looks...etc.

I have Nitto Trail Grapplers on the way to put on her....Slee sliders to replace the running boards...and WeatherTech floor mats :D :D Now, once I make my mind up I do it....call me very decisive or impatient..take your pic 8)


I will be sure to post pics if my tires, sliders, etc arrive by Friday and I install them on Saturday. LOL

After installing the new tires, removing running boards to install Slee sliders, and putting in the new floor mats...will leave suspension alone for now.
Going to run on the AHC as it has no leaks and works like a charm. When it has issues (unless I have $1300 burning hole in pocket) I will put on an Ironman suspension lift and the Slee differential drop kit.


Other things in far into the future...not anytime soon or any specific order of importance
- Unichip power upgrade (not done yet)
-[STRIKE] Slee blueberry[/STRIKE] BIO front bumper with Titan [STRIKE]10[/STRIKE]12k winch and [STRIKE]IPF [/STRIKE] RIGID lights
- Bumpit Offroad [STRIKE]or Slee[/STRIKE] rear bumper (tire, jerry cans, hi lift, corner protection, 2" rcvr)
- [STRIKE]ARB rear locker[/STRIKE] regeared to 4.88 instead in both ends
- Diff armor, Wild West LCA, other armor as needed (not done yet)
- Baja Rack (was ready to buy and stopped getting updates two years ago)
- Snorkel (soon :) )
- Raise breather vents for diffs, tranny, transfer case (not done yet)
- Rear cargo storage solution;would sell 3rd row seats at that point (sold)

That should keep me busy a couple years :D

Only tires, sliders and floor mats for now...the rest will be spaced out much further than they were on my FJC and the FJ60...or that is the plan and what I promised my wife. :D :D

You did good Brock! Can't wait to see the mods in action. Took me about a week to get a couple skids from Slee! I'm guess you might wait a month or two, or until you see a fully decked hundy and just can't take it anymore!

Those would be "skids" filled with sliders and bumpers a couple of years ago. Took me a week to place the order after I got the truck. I still need the real skid plates from slee. On the list.

It is already gone....if it comes back or if the buyer has buyers remorse I am sure you will be contacted. Not too nice....just gives me a clean slate. Remember...I wheeled a new 2008 FJC and scratched the paint :) :)

What happend to your 60's thread?

It is still there just took it off my signature block...it is in 60 forum.

Nice truck. Welcome to the Hundy club. How much did she set you back? Be interesting for comparison purposes for other mudders wanting to upgrade.
