Hi -

I've got a locked & loaded 97 LX450 in Chicago that I'm going to be putting up for sale shortly due to a little life hiccup. Great truck, super happy with it, incredibly reliable, I'd drive it across country without hesitation, blah blah blah you guys have read the same high praise for a posted rig a hundred times over.

I'm out of town and will post pics when I get back this weekend.

Anyway...

Here's a basic rundown:

- 190,XXX on the odometer
- Fully loaded (only option it didn't have was heated seats... it even had the Lexus phone in the console)
- Magic button/locking diffs
- ARB Winch bumper in front (no winch)
- Heavy/Medium OLD MAN Emu set up from Slee (will post specifics shortly)
- 305/70 Cooper Discoverer STTs w/15k (love these, BTW)
- Scion Deck (replaced factory Lexus stereo) w/new Polks all around w/USB slot in dash for phone and new subwoofer in console
- DVD player in place of Lexus CD changer in console
- Land Rover Discovery cup holder
- Husky Floor Liners (not a big fan of these... should have gotten Weathertechs)
- No running boards (removed and replaced with front mud flaps off an LC
- All service up to date and all records the last 5 years (155k until now)

Never offroaded other than a few potholed streets in Chicago.

It was a grocery getter when I got it in July of 2011.

I just ordered a set of centercaps (2 are missing).

Only current issue right now is that the drivers side window is moving slowly. I'm getting that addressed next week and having the truck gone through to make sure it's worth the asking price mechanically.

Oh yeah, which I'm figuring will be $8500.00.

I'm basing that price on the 96-97 80s that have sold over the past 6-12 months (condition, lockers, mods, mileage, etc.).

Things to point out/flag:

- There's a nickel sized hole in the drivers side bolster, and some wear around that hole (pic coming)

- There's a dime sized divot n the passenger door leather above the armrest (pic coming)

- The leather on the steering wheel is worn away on the top of the steering wheel (pic coming)

- There's a patch of bubbling under the paint on the ARB at a weld (pic coming)

- The installer (not me) did a so-so job on the Scion deck install. He trimmed the dash a little with a Dremmel, and didn't have to. This led to a gap around the stereo which you can fit a quarter through. Not bad, but wanted to mention. (pic coming)

- The plastic cladding (rear bumper and plastic cladding around the wheel wells) is pretty scuffed and scratched up from parking garages, and a few ex girlfriends. (pic coming)

- Inside both sections of the console, there are 2-3 quarter sized holes where the Lexus phone used to be mounted/wired. I've covered them w/tape after losing about $200 worth of change.

- The trailer hitch (which I've never used) paint is bubbling off, and the wiring harness back there got pinched at some point, so if someone wants to wire up trailer they'll probably need to get that checked out first

Service Records:

- Coming soon


Cheers, thanks, and comments welcome.

Alright Gusalo, there has to be a civilized way for us to handle this. Who has the better sob story? I just lost my LC to an inexperienced teen driver. I've tried looking at more readily available replacement vehicles (non-80's) and my wife is having nightmares that I'm asking her to date other men. Translated: she equates getting anything other than an 80 with infidelity. I need this truck.

What'choo got? ;)

Thanks, man. My life hiccup involves getting rid of toys, unfortunately. I'd love a 40 to be my DD, but I have to drive clients around and some of them wouldn't get it.

Update: got a virtual handshake to purchase from another Mudder. If anything changes I'll bump.
