Up for sale is my 1997 Black Lexus LX450 which I've owned for 11 months and have loved every minute of it.

Price: $15,000 OBO

Mileage: 147,XXX

Suspension & Tires:
- Slee 6" lift with OME L shocks, sway bar relocation, Slee radius arms, extended brake lines, Slee springs
- 5 315-75-16 BFG AT's - 4 at 40% and 1 at 95% (spare)

Armor:
- ARB front bumper
- 4X4Labs double swing-out rear bumper
- Slee sliders w/ cat protection

Drivetrain:
- Re-geared to 4.88's
- ARB lockers front and rear (instantaneous locking)
- Front dual cardon driveshaft
- Rear dual cardon driveshaft

Other:
- Pre-wired for CB
- Wagongear rear tailgate storage
- Fender flares removed and rhino-lined
- Cup-holder added to the dash
- Stock stereo & CD player function correctly and is a laugh for me since the speakers are so small
- 2 keys with 1 key fob (still works)
- Safari snorkel

Maintenance Items Completed:
- 9 month old Sears Platinum battery
- Radiator flush
- New belts
- New blue fan clutch
- Transmission flush - this week

Maintenance Items Upcoming:
- Front brakes within 10-15K - no sign of wear now
- Front axle rebuild within 10k - slight build up now, no clicking
- 4 tires will need replaced in 10-15k, sooner with hardcore wheeling in mind

The Bad:
- Leather on the driver's seat is 4/10
- Electronic antenna does not function (I move it manually)
- Driver side passenger door lock does not function
- One rim is not chrome like the others - keep them dirty and no one will notice

Truck was purchased in November 2011 from Arizona so it's as rust free as you can get. Oklahoma does not use salt in the winter as well. Flew out to AZ and drove it home with no troubles. Has since went back to AZ for new years football game and back home again. Rig has been wheeled at Disney in Oklahoma and Superlift near Hot Spring, AR. Has also been on several camping trips hauling people and gear.

Absolutely love the height of the rig (just fits in a standard garage) and the flex of the front and rear compared to an IFS rig. The reason I'm looking to move on is I've fallen in love with the 100 series cruisers and want to build one of those next. Rig travels on the highway quite well and can do 75 mph all day long with no issues. Where these really excel is on the trails with their supreme traction and flex. No codes have been registered since I've owned the rig and I have no reason to believe the original headgasket will let go anytime soon. No smoke on startup and plenty of power with the 4.88's.

I'm not in dire straights to sell this rig so please no lowball offers. Located in Bartlesville, OK just 40 miles North of Tulsa International Airport. Willing to pick you up if coming from out of town.

Ha thanks for reminding me I sold one of my favorite vehicles. I've got a 60 that I am planning on listing up due to our family size doubling later this year.
