    I would have been so pissed if I flew out there for that. Lesson learned if it's in the salt belt don't even think about it.

    I have been looking for a GX also and will buy one out of CA/AZ no problem. UT or any midwest, eastcoast area's not a chance.

    I guess it is all in context. I feel sorry for those peeps. Will they ever learn and stop using salt?

    The price is what tempted me. $15400 for a newer low mileage gx sport.

    I've found 05-07's in AZ with 150ish for 2K less. I just want to spend even less than that! I guess I'm just a cheap ass!

    They used to be cheaper... before they were #ExpoAF


    Just FYI, IIRC
    When looking for one, one of the things I was avoiding was getting that "upgraded" stereo. Its some different voltage (18v maybe?) so you cannot easily fix things like speakers.

    And the other radio that has built in HVAC controls, you cant upgrade the headunit. And if it goes out, you lose HVAC and its not a cheap fix.

    We are using salt brine same as utah now too. It's only in certain counties, but will continue to spread.

    The NAV is bad by today's standards but some china companies are making Android replacement screens that have CAN bus and will operate the HVAC. I'd be willing to give it a try.

    I'm sure between digikey and adafruit you could find a CAN bus breakout board/ dev kit and likewise for a voltage regulator and solder and heatshrink away =D

    Are those the sport model with the KDSS? The sports are freaking rare.

    :notsure:

    I don't even know how to tell the difference without seeing the underside of the trucks if it has KDSS. I would prefer to not have it.

    I thought it was fairly easy to pull out the KDSS? Not that I am looking at them.

    I just picked one of these up on Amazon:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IDV2GQY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    couldn't beat the price and the handle is steel as well.
