    How’s it going?

    Recently traded my Nissan Frontier for a 2017 GX 460. Installed an Ironman stage 2 lift kit, TRD PRO wheels and 275/70r17 general grabber atx tires. Many more to come. This is my first “Toyota” off road vehicle so still learning everything about it.

    Thanks. It was between the GX and a newer 4runner. Price was the same so I went for the V8 haha.

    From what I’ve read they are essentially the same. Basically a luxury 4runner. Or Land Cruiser Prado 150.

    Whenever I see a GX, I tell my daughter it’s Frosty’s rich cousin. (My 4R is named Frosty)

    Thanks for the pics. Love the way the rear door opens. What color is the gauge cluster at night?

    There’s two child seats. Growing family that’s why we went with a GX :)

    3” at the moment but I’m sure it’ll settle to 2.5-2.75”

    The ride is absolutely amazing with the Ironman.

    The GX is nice and all, but does the rear window roll down?

    No but it pops up. The air conditioned seats, navigation, leather seats, V8 and all at the same price of the 4runner is why I chose it. But you’re right the roll down hatch window is the beezneez.

    Good looking ride!

    I kept my 2006 Frontier and added my 2019 4Runner.
    Figured I had more into the Frontier than whatever Toyota would offer me.

    Nice! I loved the frontier. Solid truck just got too small for us.

    I completely agree. I was close to buying a 4 door Taco but was tired of being cramped in my Frontier.
    Find the 4Runner more roomy.
