    A 1996 LX 450 with 123K one owner, soccer mom miles.

    She's also got LOCKERS, Lexus service records, new front driver/passenger leather seat bottoms and a beautiful black ding-free body. The closest she's ever been to muddin' is dodging a few oranges barrels on the highway.

    Before the week's out, will order the FSM, some parts for the P401 CEL service and new tires.

    And next Wednesday, the family's off for a week to Rocky Mountain National Park and other points west to introduce her to a little dirt.

    Only glitch so far is the factory alarm, which seems to be the RS3000. Couldn't fix it with new remote battery, so tried to reprogram the ECU by pushing the green button on the side of unit under driver's seat. Nothing happens (no chirp, no light on dash indicator). Checked dome fuse - OK. Any advice for a new guy on the best next move?

    This board's great, I'm glad to be here.

    The good life, cruisers are meant to be taking offroad. They're just being caged in when soccer moms drive em.

    Welcome, Axle! Beautiful rig (maybe I'm a little biased as I have a black LX myself). Keep us up to date on the mods!

I just picked up the same rig with 63K hope to have it delivered in a week or so and I will post pic then and keep people updated on it's mods but my first plans are to remove the roof rack and side steps and install the slee 6". Ours are the same year and both locked....I hope to be at cruise moab next year hope to see your there.

    Nordstrom is the perfect background for Lexus pics. What would the equivalent background be for an FJ80?
