Default New guy intro - w/GX470

Hi all -

New guy here. Just found this club. I have an '05 GX 470 with the KDSS suspension and a set of BFG MTs. Not much else.

Eager to explore our state with it. I've had a few 4Runners over the years, but the GX is a different beast entirely.

I'm in Denver near Wash Park. Anyone else nearby? Anyone with a GX? I see a lifted one around Louisiana and 25 periodically. Maybe 2" lift? Mine is basically stock height (Bilstein 5150s set to the second lowest setting).

Yep, I did decide to hang onto it. I really don't drive it very often... once or twice a month. But I think I need to hang onto it until summer at least!

Where's the meeting tomorrow? I could probably make it...

Edit: Found the meeting. Not 100% sure I can get out there, but I'll try!

I live in the area, and about 5 others do as well. I took their names off this reply just in case they want to remain "hidden". (Used to be some low life dirt bags that were stealing trucks and scrapping them, so don't want to give away location too much of others) But yeah, quite a few of us in-towners within a swing of a cat. Couple 2002's around in the hood too...one of them might be yours. There was a tii in a guy's driveway right on the park for a while, but he sold the house and I don't know where he went.

If you are new to the area, we can meet up for pizza and a beer over at Kaos sometime and I'll give you a list of fun places to try out.

I'm up for Kaos whenever! Sounds great. I see a lot of 100s running around Wash and Platt parks, so I've probably seen you guys (I'm the one drooling and taking photos). Anyone know who has the silver lifted GX?

I've seen it, but I don't know who that is. There's a silver one in town with an ARB bumper on the front too. Only other one I've ever seen modded here in town. Dan Kunz was a friend of mine back in ATL and his is all tricked out....I think he came out for Moab last year, might come out this way again. Prolly fun to check his truck out in person.

I forgot about that. I did see the silver ARB'd one a while back.

Mine doesn't stand out unless you look for the BFG MTs.
