    Hmm.. I've never seen an LX450 without running boards and roof rack. Thought it was standard.

    Anyways, all you can do when going this route is the research; carfax, call dealer for service history, and ask the seller any questions or concerns you have. I would highly recommend having the ebay pre-purchase inspection done (by Pep-boys). It's like $20 or $30 bucks and they'll be able to tell you about some of the stuff you can't see in pictures (brakes, oil leaks etc..).

    A lot of these folks seem to brag about it being a Florida rig. Mine was from a South Florida beach and seems to have a lot of under-carrage surface rust and everytime you take something off, sand comes out. Although I'm from Knoxville, so I'm hard-wired to disliking Florida (particularly Gainesville) people :D.

    Good Luck,
