I did it!
I made the plunge and bought a locked 1997 LX 450. I am super stoked and can’t wait to lift it and do some wheelin' Check out my photo album



Changed the motor oil, diff oil, changed out the gatorback belts with Toyota Belts, replaced the EGR Valve and adjusted the timing and PASSED smog.

Do you guys have the part number or a fix for these

Replace window trim

Fix Roof Channel

Rubber around rear window

Rubber around head lights

Ordered the hoses for PHH and FHH
Trailer wiring is chewed up – Bought Hopkins 43405 wiring Kit

***What else should I check or replace before I plunge to the next phase?

Next on the list:
CDL Switch & Pin 7 Mod
Slee 4” Lift
Bought four 315 / 75 / 16 bfg mt km2s on Land cruiser wheels from KimoSabe
Paint LC Wheels Black
Sliders
Rear bumper and tire carrier

Thanks in Advance

Looks like a clean start!


Yikes! I haven't ever seen a 95-97 dash crack. Now I'm slightly paranoid about mine cracking.

Nice.....

I'd check that the rear sliding windows don't leak into the cabin given the state of the rubber seal on the vent cover the rest of the whole area might be dried out too. Better to know and get it in shape. Check the jack, it might be rusty as a sign of the leak, or just pop the whole cover off and see if it leaks from a garden hose spray.

Thanks for the warm welcomes!!! Glad to be apart of the Mud Community

what rims are those?
They are rims from a 2006 Tundra that the seller had bought and swapped them before the sale.

I bought it in AZ so I imagine it was left in the sun. I thought it would bother me but I dont even see it do to the steering wheel.

You need to check in here :cheers:

Did you happen to pick up that rig up in Prescott Valley, AZ? It looks just like one that I've seen running around town sometimes. Congrats! by the way it looks like a really clean truck. Have fun with the black paint (same as mine), it sure looks great when its clean.:cheers:

If my records are correct, part # 75740-60020 "Moulding A" list $84.45
I would confirm, prior to purchase though.
Try Dan at America Toyota, here on mud

Next on the list:
CDL Switch & Pin 7 Mod

You don't have to do the pin 7 mod you can just plug in the switch and be able to lock it in HI. If you find yourself on hardcore tight trails regularly then I would pull the 7 pin. Also you can use a hazard switch for $10 rather than the lokcer switch for $40.

Slee 4” Lift

I would also consider Iron Man's 4" or Frankies Offroad 3.5" lift.

Bought four 315 / 75 / 16 bfg mt km2s on Land cruiser wheels from KimoSabe
Paint LC Wheels Black
Sliders
Rear bumper and tire carrier
Look up Sean Bumpers here in the 80 section for a San Diego guy making great bumpers for a good price and customized to your liking.

Looks like those tundra rims offset are a little off. I ran 1.5 spacers behind my tundra rims and brought them out even with the flares. Nice Truck!
