    A group of us walk every morning - 2 miles down and back on my private road. Friends of ours brought family with them from California last week. One of which was driving a lifted Armored 2018 Lexus GX460. I had to show him my 4Runner plus chat with him about his mods on our walk.

    He had Metal Tech front and rear bumpers on his rig. Looked pretty good. Hides that ugly grill:

    Around $5k for front and rear bumper!! They’re nice but I’ll wait until I hit something before I fork up that much cash haha.

    The rear bumper is pretty dope..

    lol. “Almost complete” oooookay. :spending:

    in reference to when you got stuck does that rig (and GX in general) have the same electronic goodies multi terrain select and crawl control?

    Mine is the base model so no crawl control for me. I didn’t want rear air bags so had to go with the base. I can add it for a few hundred bucks. That will be down the road when I get stuck again

    Well even with the base I got leather heated/cooled seats, sun roof, navigation, center locking diff, tow package, etc. Thing is a beast.

    I just wish they didn’t have the swing out door. I can see that being in my way a lot.

    Really digging the posts and info on upgrades - I just replaced my 5th gen 4runner with a 2016 GX460. Tires and suspension are first on my list of exterior mods, and I've been leaning towards the TRD Pro wheels. What tires are you running?

    I'll agree there. I don't have a GX (yet) but test driving a few, I preferred the swing out door. I like not having to duck under the hatch.

    275/70r17 General Grabber ATX. I wanted to go with 285/70 or 255/80 but the generals were new on offerup for $500. They have been excellent in PNW rain/snow.

    That’s exactly why I tried so hard to convince her to trade in her Durango for the 4runner haha.
