Bugeye's GX460 Build

The one build I am actually going to document my progress and stick with...hopefully. We had a 5thgen 4runner and while it was a great vehicle, we wanted more bells and whistles. I had my eye on a GX460 when we first bought the 4runner but never found the right one. I wanted the V8 & 6speed trans that the Lexus came with, who wouldn't? I finally found the one we were looking for a 2010 GX460 with 74K, gray on black leather with the rear entertainment system. Sold the 4runner that day and drove to NY to pick it up.

The GX is at Main Line Overland getting the lift installed! Right before that we got the front widows tinted 20%, matches perfectly to the rears. Down the line we will get the rear fully tinted as the OEM windows are just dipped and actually don't do anything to keep the inside cooler.

Lift is on! Thanks to Pete at Main Line Overland, he and his team took care of this project flawlessly. Now some more trimming to do and we should be good. Once I have sliders I will get rid of the steps, it is the wife's daily after all.

Looks good! What hitch is that? All the ones I've found are small plates that bolt to the frame, not full bars like yours.

When you get a few minutes, go say something in the GX owners thread so we have you in there as an owner. We'll never outnumber the 4runner & Tacoma guys, but we still need to make our mark!
