Yup that is true. Back in 08-2010, Land Cruisers were DIRT cheap here in USA compared to everywhere else in the world. And exporters got hold of a lot of US LCs to send off to the rest of the world where they really hold their value. A 98/99 with about 100k in 2008 here in the US was like sub $10k.Allegedly many LCs got exported to Russia and Asia. So the supply is much lower compared to the LX.
Your lx doesn't have seat memory for driver? My 06 does not passenger side thoughI’m new to the 100 series. I recently picked up a stock ‘07 LC for all the well known reasons. Not long after I got it I drove my buddy’s ‘01 LX on 285/70/18’s for a couple weeks (otherwise stock). Honestly, the consensus that LX’s are great, more power isn’t needed and 5 speeds aren’t necessary is absolutely correct. I had no complaints about his LX, I’m even pretty jealous that he has seat memory! It’s a great rig for the money. I just couldn’t do that face

Agreed and found the same when I began shopping. I really like the old school look of the brand, they are all Yodas in my book. Once Slee gets their next batch of hub centric spacers in, I'll get my Rock Warriors and Falkens into the game and my '05 LX will be All-Road / All-Wx prepped and set....you are going to find more examples of the LX in the states , and most of those have never been offroad and meticulously maintained.
The AHC is great, but Once it fails I'm replacing the suspension.
Replaced that ml amp, that was $540 with shipping to united radio. But... The system sounds excellent otherwise - much better than my 2012 acura tl ELS (unless I'm listening to DVD audio!)An obvious oversight by Mr. T engineers was quick release seat bolts, especially for the front passenger seat. This would be very useful when the unreliable under seat amps amps start to die.
I wanted a newer lx and was having trouble finding. I started looking at 08',09' 4runners which are great but no 100 series !so stoked on the lx, we'll obsessed actuallyI've had both (both 2000) and thought I would like the LC more but im really liking the LX. It has 245xxx miles and AHC still works flawlessly and it just a little bit enough more comfortable overall. Also easier to find
