Seller Note

I absolutely love this vehicle and it's been an incredible experience building it up and going on camping trips with the family. Everything that's been done to it has been done within the last year and before that it was completely stock and was driven by a soccer mom. I have been very invested in the maintenance and the mods and have taken very good care of it. My family is moving across the country and sadly I don't think we will be bringing this with us and will be starting a brand new chapter. It drives very well on and off road and is in my opinion one of the most comfortable cars I've ever owned.

Below is a list of everything I have done so far:

Dobinson’s IMS 3” lift

CVJ Axles with high angle boots just serviced

JBA upper control arms

Brand new 555 Sankei lower control arm ball joints

Brand new White line lower control arm bushings

Califab rear 3 links (rear lower, rear upper, and adjustable pan hard bar)

Brand new Eimkeith PCK

Brand new Overland Custom Designs adjustable sway bar end links front and back 

Brand new Energy suspension sway bar bushings front and back

Stage 2 rear conversion

Durobumps front and rear bump stops

Califab Rocksliders 

Brand new Go North Off-road front skid and LCA skids

Raceline Injector wheels -12mm offset

Brand new 285/70/17 Milestar Patagonia M/Ts (They literally still have the little prickly things that come on on new tires.)

Brand new Hot Metal Fab fully custom front bumper with a brand new Warn Evo 10K-S winch and integrated fog lights and light bar. 

SMK fabrication switch relay bracket and switch controller with universal switch/controller

Amazon light pods and light bar and a custom wire harness

JWOffroad roof rack

Smittybilt Overlander XL

Amazon fog lights

Amazon weather resistant floor mats throughout the whole vehicle

Front grill paint matched to the bumper (I have unused cans and can give them to you to do touch ups on the grill and bumper if it ever wears.) If I were you I would order one of the new grilles that just came out on garagealpha.com.

TB and water pump done at 120K

Spark plugs and coil packs done at 120K

ATF drain and fill at 120K

Front diff, rear diff, and t-case fluid exchange with amsoil severe gear oil at 120K

Oil change every 5K

Filter change every 10K

New gas cap :)

This GX has just under 130K miles but it is going up as I drive it most days. 

It has everything a stock 2008 Lexus GX470 has besides what's been removed as seen in the pictures (front bumper, side skirts, stock roof rack, and that's all I think.)

I have the third row stowed away and it will come with the vehicle. 

It has leather seats, navigation, moonroof, premium audio, 4wd, center differential lock, and etc. 

There is little to no rust on it.

I will throw in the Smittybilt Overlander XL if the price is right. It is bigger than a King size mattress inside and it has been used only 4-5 times. 

Everything has been installed either by Califab in Carmichael or Hot Metal Fab in Loomis. I can't recommend them both enough as they are both great to work with and both had great customer service.

The bad:

The right rear door needs a new door lock actuator and only opens from the inside. 

Small paint chips on the hood by the grill. 

The rear door handles and trim on the rear could use a plastidip redo or you can tear it off and keep the chrome underneath. (The front door handles are black but I have the stock chrome ones if you want them.)

The leather seats on the inside are worn with some wrinkles but no tears. 

The wood trim around the navigation on the left side has a small bend in it making it a little bit uneven in on the very top corner with the right side. Both left and right AC vents, built into the wood trim, is missing the little knobs to grab onto to move the vents (I've just used an air freshener tab to move them and it's been fine. You can find them used or new online if you really wanted to replace them.)

One of the keys is not programed to use the buttons on the key itself (it is programmed to start the car.) You can program them yourself but I was having trouble getting them both to sync up with my 2 year old crawling all over me. 

The Smittybilt tent platform has a baseball sized dent in it that punctured a small hole only on one side (The hole does no go through to the other side of the platform) and it has been taped up and has never been an issue. 

I left the TPMS sensors out because I planned on deleting them and modding the sensor to turn off.
