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

    My GX is a 2004, bought with 135k ish in late 2017. It was a one owner dealer maintained, ATL car. It's a 15 year old SUV. None of the maintenance is surprising. The point is, a Toyota is just a car. Cars get old and need wrenches. Just the same as Rovers 🤷‍♂️ OP: Get the truck that makes you...

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

    haha! Crazy isn't it? I love both of the trucks though, and have no plans to get rid of either of them.

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

    Radiator, battery, brakes, rear driveshaft, replacing crap rear air suspension, hood struts, coolant overflow reservoir, a myriad of coolant hoses, Seat position sensor, various interior trim pieces, wheel bearing, literally every lightbulb in the vehicle. I mean i could go on.... Maintenance...

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

    100% downgrade. My LR3 is the best truck I've ever owned. Way more capable than a T4R as well. I own an LR3 and a GX470. The LR3 sees significantly less wrench time than the Lexus. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    Grabber X3 pic request

    Hey all, I'm looking at some Grabber X3's for my GX470. Wondering if any of you are running these and if you could share some photos. I'm sitting on a Dobinsons 2" lift, and I'm leaning towards 265/70/17 as I don't want to do much chopping to make my tires fit. I also dont want the tires to...

    GX470 Suspension Recommendation

    I'm installing a metaltech conversion, and a dobinsons front and rear kit with 2" medium front springs, and 1.75" medium rears this weekend. I'll report back once we get it done and do some shakedowns.

    Reliability

    I've got a 2008 LR3 and a 2004 GX470. Both are very comfortable, and I'd imagine either would be great for a bad back. They are as reliable as 10+ year old SUVs can and should be. That is to say, buy some wrenches... It ain't that bad, usually.

    LR3 Slider options/opinions

    Update here: Finally found time to get these TR sliders off my garage floor and onto the truck. They are awesome, and heavy, and not something I'm looking forward to having to remove anytime soon.
