And the front seat WAY far backward. You're measuring distance between 2 completely moveable parts. Edmunds lists rear legroom on an 2001 4runner as 34.9" and the LC200 at 34.4" Of note, the table below should help. While the legroom is shorter by 0.5", clearly the back seat is bigger. Not to mention that the seating is notably lower in the 4runner, bringing your knees up closer to your chest and not nearly as comfortable as the LC. Having owned both, no comparison on comfort.Your second row of seats must be waaaay far forward.

Believe people on here have taken out the 3d row on the LX. Heck, they even make a 2 row version of the LX now.
Did it sit for four months? That could kill A battery. The not driving for COVID will kill a lot of batts this year.
it comes out just as easily, there is a power plug. Otherwise the same as tlc to remove. After your first time it is 5 min per side.
edit for post above at same time - ok.
Yes, it is dead simple to remove. Fold it up using power switch, but prevent latching to wall with finger. Listen to safety buzzer for 20 seconds. While listening to safety buzzer, Pull off two plastic vanity covers. This is hard only once, because once understood where they latch, easy to put the pressure on them correctly. Unplug the plug (easy to reach). Undo four bolts with your ratchet, impact, socket, teeth. Lift and clean seat out rear hatch.I did not know that, everything I have read made it seem like a bit more of a daunting task than that. Am I safe to assume reinstalling if needed is equally as simple just the reverse order? Makes it even better! We use our third row 6-10x a year so I'd say we "need" it but the times we don't use it extra cargo space wouldn't be frowned upon!
To @hockeycoach18 . This guy like to take extremes to make his point. What he doesn't tell you:
The specific case he's speaking of is caused by a single mechanics incompetence. A simple flush done wrong leading to air getting in the system. Incompetent mechanic fails to use common sense and replaces non-failed expensive things to rack up parts and labor on Lexus's dime. This is akin to flushing the brake system and getting air in, not following the FSM on how bleed it, and replacing good working parts.
What he also doesn't tell you is that AHC is incredibly reliable, with majority easily going hundreds of thousands of miles and beyond, with continuous high level performance. Just like the AHC system in the 100-series, but better. One can flush the system onboard (60k maintenance interval), just like changing oil or coolant, and the system performs like new again. The very rare typical issue (if you can even call it that) involve weeping shocks that are relatively cheap ($175 per front, $80 per rear). Or rust on lines. I can count the number of reported issues with AHC on these boards within two hands.
If he were forthcoming, he'd tell you about the trials and cost reality on other side of the fence, trying to upgrade suspensions. I bet he won't, so I'd encourage you to search the thousands of posts yourself.
I'll leave you with - AHC is the creme de la creme system out there. Capability, performance, on-road and off, without compromise to either. With durability light years beyond anything aftermarket, unless it were to LC stock system itself. Yet that system is not up to enthusiast pursuits.
