It is pretty to sit in a parking lot and raise and lower the vehicle

If I were to buy a 100 or LX470 the build would be mild...Even then, from what I have read with the LX470 the AHC is a problem. To lift the LX that stuff has to go away, or so I've read. You can raise the LX and lock the system out so it doesn't drop but there are long term affects by doing that. I read some concerns about the negative affects of adding sliders and bumpers and what the extra weight long term will do to the AHC system. One thing is for sure, the cost to fix the AHC appears to be pricey and I guess that is when you'd pull the trigger to pull the stuff and put on a lift.
