Overland Classifieds :: 2006 Lexus GX470

The GX470 is no stranger to the Expedition Portal team, and was, in fact, a project vehicle for Overland Journal. The team chose the Lexus specifically for its heavy-duty body-on-frame construction, powerful and dependable 4.7-liter V8 motor, 1,500-payload rating, 5-link airbag rear suspension, and overall reliability. The build was a resounding success, and Publisher and Chairman Scott Brady showcased the finished build on the Expedition Portal Youtube channel. We’ve since featured several expedition-ready examples to our classifieds, including a 2005 GX470 Sportand a 2006 GX470. Today’s low-mileage (103,400 miles) offering has been meticulously maintained, showcases extensive premium modifications, and would make the perfect turnkey adventure rig for the upcoming summer season.
