Overland Classifieds :: 2005 Lexus GX470 Sport

Excellent all-terrain performance matched with bulletproof reliability and class-leading interior comfort are just some of the reasons the Lexus GX470 is a great option for vehicle travel. I admit it’s not the first rig that comes to mind when we think of overlanding, but that makes it all the more interesting. Lexus is perhaps best known for luxurious interiors, and the GX470 is no exception —but it’s off-road that this upmarket 4WD might surprise you. These all-terrain credentials inspired Overland Journal’s Lexus GX470 project vehicle, which is showcased by Scott Brady on the Expedition Portal Youtube channel: Lexus GX470 Built For Overlanding. Today’s well-maintained offering has covered just 156,000 miles, and enjoys a long list of premium modifications.

From the Seller:

The truck is extremely clean and just as nice in person as in the pictures.I am happy to answer questions; if you would like to know anything, PM me.”
