Erik’s 2007 Lexus GX470 Build List

My name is Erik and this is my 2007 GX470 that has just over 206k miles. I bought it in Feb 2022 after doing a road trip in a friend’s Tacoma through Death Valley and seeing all the cool places an off roader can take you. I’ve built it all up myself in my garage and took my first big roadtrip to Colorado this past summer. I live in the Chicago area and wanted to buy something that was comfortable and reliable for long road trips. This came up on FB marketplace locally for me and was from Texas with no rust and tons of service records so I met the guy next day and bought it.
