Default Jimmy's LS460 Build- Blackpearl front kit

I've been a member since 2011 and I have yet to post anything about my Lexus LS460 2009 AWD baby. Here are some of the mods I've done and yes I have such a LOOONG way to go.

Went with AC Forged 313s 3 piece wheels - 22x9 front, 22x10.5 rear

3m gloss wrapped the roof, hood, and outer chrome piece of the front grill

Got my boy that works as a mechanic at my local Lexus dealership to use his scan tool to lower my vehicle down a few inches. Will do for now until I can save enough for airrunners.

Blackpearl front kit with LEDs.

Junction produce neck pads and seat cushions, a bit stiff but hopefully it will break in in a few months.

My next mod will be to finish up on the rest of the Blackpearl kit, rear and still debating on which sides I should go for.

Also looking to install the Joe-Z exhaust system soon.

LEDs are pretty bright, as for the DRL I got it tapped to the fog lights so I can turn it off and on during the day. Not sure if that answers your question.

Sup Tony, yea rear definitely Blackpearl but the sides I am still not sure.. Leaning towards Blackpearl as well but I like simplicity, like how the Wald sides look.
I have a lot of time, wifey says no more mods this yr haha- little does she know!

Wow looks good. The ride height looks good on it also. Looks like it's both driveable and enjoyable.
