    GX470's are spectacular. Coil conversions are cheap/easy/common and solve the rear air suspension problems. Come to the dark side- we have lattes!

    Lexus GX 460 & 470 owner's thread

    Have you looked at GX470's? The 3rd row folds up against the sides and is easily removable - you may have more height to work with there.

    LR3 to 3rd gen 4Runner: lateral move or upgrade/downgrade

    You seem to have been spectacularly lucky on one hand and unlucky on the other.

    Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac and Hankook Dynapro AT-M do well in northern NH.

    Thoughts on 2010 4runner trail edition?

    Yeah, the V8 is nice to have. I have 255/75's and winch/armor on my GX470 and it's perfectly happy.

    4runner / LC / Sequoia questions

    Don't let the Lexus badge scare you off. :)

    Thinking of going from Tacoma to 4Runner

    For what it's worth, I've done this: 1st gen Taco -> 1st gen Tundra -> 1st gen Taco -> LX450 -> GX470 -> GX470 #2 No regrets in moving to an SUV, and Lexus build quality is lovely.

    4runner / LC / Sequoia questions

    The GX470 does not have VGRS - presumably the OP was looking at an LX470. If that is the case, the LX470 does not have air suspension.

    Excluding the V8 models ;)

    Can’t decide between GX470 and Sequoia

    Key "under the skin." Yes, they're all 120/150-series chassis (03+ anyway). Compare the body sheet metal and get back to me.

    The GX is literally a fancy Landcruiser Prado with a V8. Congrats! Are you in GXOR yet?

    You should check out GX470's and GX460's too. No locker, but they all have V8s.

    Can T4R 5th gen TPMS go on trailer?

    It is likely capable of monitoring five tires. I haven't looked at a 5th gen, but in Techstream there are five slots for TPMS IDs for a GX470 (same as 4th gen).

    06 GX vs 05 Land Cruiser

    If you're planning on taking it off road, consider getting the rear diff in the GX470 rebuilt with a solid pinion spacer. A high mileage 8" rear diff with the OEM crush spacer is likely to fail eventually if ran hard enough.

    Used GX Daily Driver + dirt road capability? Model year 2005+ for VVT-i / more power. It runs fine on 87 (but the manual asks for premium). There are a few people in GXOR with over 400k miles on their 470's.
