For Sale: Lexy the GX470

Imagine the place in nature or around the world you dream of experiencing with your family. Is it close to home for a weekend getaway fishing by a beautiful lake, a few hundred miles away in the off-road bliss of the Rocky Mountains, or perhaps somewhere in another country where you can experience its culture and beauty? We had all of these dreams, and our Lexus GX470, affectionately named Lexy, enabled us to accomplish each and every one of them. We built her to be able to handle any environment, weather, road, or trail condition because you never know what could happen when so far from civilization; which is exactly where we wanted to be.

From climbing the steep rock face and boulders of Poughkeepsie Gulch in the crispy cool Rockies with ease, to quickly and comfortably covering the many miles of blown out and corrugated desert back roads in sweltering Baja Mexico, Lexy is far from just an average “trail rig”. She is a desert road bomber, a crawler, and a dream on the highway, the perfect trifecta of capability and comfort. We are telling you this because the time has come for Seth and I to follow other dreams, and for Lexy to help another family finds theirs. This unique GX470 has been published in several magazines, advertisements, and websites and is the only one currently like it. She is a vehicle you can trust to carry you and your family to the farthest reaches of the globe in comfort and safety.

There was no expense spared on the build, and every detail was given thorough and thoughtful planning. Lexy has been meticulously maintained using only Lexus parts when available and detailed maintenance records have been kept. All maintenance is current making this a truly turn key vehicle ready to be driven or shipped anywhere in the world. As an added bonus Lexy comes with a two-day camping/training course on how to use all of her systems including my favorite: the hot water shower.

SUSPENSION:

The main capability upgrade on Lexy is an ICON Vehicle Dynamics Stage 7 Suspension System with an additional “S2” secondary shock upgrade. The front is comprised of billet aluminum upper control arms, 2.5” coilovers with ICON’s CDC (Compression Damping Control) Valve, and two-tube Omega Series bypass secondary shocks with compression and rebound adjust-ability. The rear factory air suspension has been replaced with ARB heavy-duty expedition springs, ICON upper and lower billet control arms, Omega Series bypass rear shocks and hydraulic bump stops, ICON adjustable pan hard bar. All of this combines to create a suspension setup that is well-suited for the rough terrain and high speeds, but also is comfortable enough for daily driver duty with the ability to adjust the shocks for the perfect ride in any scenario.
