Is that because in order to put a lift you have to remove all of the AHC stuff or because of mechanical issues or ??
My 1999 LX470 has AHC. I push the up button and it rises 3". I push the down button and it drops 2". It will stay raised (or lowered) until the vehicle speeds up to a threshold (19 mph IIRC) and then it reverts back to the normal position.

AHC will also automatically level the vehicle on inclines. So on an uphill driveway the rear will lift up. It is this component of AHC that when it goes bad is where I've seen most people complain. Mine levels sometime and other times it does not - but that don't bother me enough to spend the $$$$ to correct the issue.

I figure as long as my up button works, I'm set for the minimal off road stuff I would do. As long as my down button works, I'm set for when my mom needs to get in/out of the truck.

My truck did not come with a receiver or wiring. I had lampert install the hitch and do the wiring for a flat 4 plug so I could tow my drift boat. It was not plug and play, but it works just fine.
