    Hi guys

    Just bought a 1997 LX450 and had a couple questions

    My questions:

    What is the vehicle code for this truck, I noticed that many of the forums are chassis codes, at least I think they are.

    What kind of problems are common in this year, and what should I immeadiatly check?

    Are there any major diff in engine, drivetrain, or anything from the Landcruiser model that I should know about?

    Thanks for your help.

    Welcome from another lower mainland BC guy.

    1997 was a good year. It was the last of the best.

    You will learn a lot here, and don't let the idiots driving Cruisers bother you - the LX is every bit as tough. You will just arrive a lot more relaxed at the end of the trip.

    Take a look at my home page if you want some ideas - I drive a 96 LX.
