Default Gx 470

Does anyone have experiences with the GX 470? It looks like one could pick up something used in fairly good condition for a decent price.

Mark Hawley had suggested it. I think it is an FJC frame. Sounds like you could lift it. Looks like a Land Cruiser inside.

The GX470 is the 120 series Prado. The newer GX460 is the 150 series Prado.

Correct. Its the "light duty" Land Cruiser. Still a Land Cruiser. I have wheeled with 120's in Israel. I just chased in Baja with Woody and Heather in Heather's GX. My neighbors just bought one.

Metaltech has a nice front bumper Heather has. There is a Metaltech rear bumber too but I have not seen it in person. Also check out Southern Style Offroad. They are doing some nice things to GX's and I have wheeled with them at FJ Summit. Some crossover parts from FJ's and 4Runners. V8 power. Most will have lived pampered lives.

Chris, you need to come to the surface more. Seems like half the club owns a GX now.
