    1997 Lexus LX 450

    Time to let her go, this is one great truck! It has kept my son safe for 6 years and has never left him stranded. We have maintained the heckout of this truck. My son has driven cross country in it several times so each time we would have our mechanic go through it, if we found something questionable we would replace everything around it. All fluids and filters havebeen changed and checked regularly, 3 to 5 k miles. The paint is ok, it has some trail rash. I repaired a dent at the drivers sidetaillight..not perfect. The truck does have the front and rear locking diff’sand comes with the 3rd row seats that are in near perfect condition
