    It would definately be sweet but do you really need two offroad vehicles? You're truck is already badass! it seems like you'd want the lexus for long trips and daily driving. Although i do agree it would look great set uplike an arctic truck. Hey, its your money, if you wanna destroy a Lexus i support you a hundred percent, i just want to see a video of you doing it :)

    You are still one sick puppy nd! Don't forget my badass Jeep! The wife has the roadtrip Sequoia and my commute is only 10 miles to the river. I think an Arctic Truck can make it even at 2 mpg. I'm still trying to talk the wife into letting me put a 3" on her Sequoia. She said she'd cut my nuts off! Imagine that! So the Mother In Laws vehicle is next. You're from down South buddy. Isn't it "Bigger is Better?" I am part of the Yankee Carolina Alliance after all!

    True, bigger is better, it just seems like you're splitting all your money up between vehicles. I think you should take all that money and focus it soley on teh taco. who knows, maybe eventually your truck could be as modded out as pb's. BTW, you need to have your title changed to have something to do with the Alliance :)

    ...in my dreams! :crazy:

    That thing will be awesome when you get done with it. Off-roading Lexus - that is like four wheelin with an expresso machine. Except - this expresso machine has what it takes since it really is a Toyota LandCruiser.

    SAS! Just kidding. I want to see what this lexus looks like modded. If it were me I would prefer an 80 series because of the Solid Axle but I'm sure the lexus could hold its own.

    Got a 2002 Land Cruiser, but what lift are you looking at? Those 1999 LX470's have adjustable suspension height systems.
