Always nice to hear about someone obtaining the vehicle they love. The gold looks good. One of the few vehicles that actually carries it off well. Are you going to put on wider wheels and tires to help you float on the sand better? I'd imagine even with full time AWD, the heft of the LC causes a fair amount of digging in.

These are actually sand tires. Once they are deflated down to around 10-15 psi they look much wider.

The tires are nice but they can be heavy and quite unstable on the road..



They are known locally as baloon tires.


This is how she looked before the lift

Its weird to see Landcruisers stripped down without the tints spoilers lower profile wheels ect. Here they are super expensive and fully loaded, (even the older ones still fetch quite a lot of money) and there they are like a Jeep here. Love landcruisers, miss our old lx470

We get many options here.

From stripped models to fully loaded models similar to the US models. They hold their value very well!

This is how it looked stock

Mine came without the rear spoiler.



I don't have any interior pictures but the interior is identical to this...not a fan of the fake wood.




This is the equivalent 2014 Model.. GX-R

Looks good! I've been to Qatar and that place is scary on the roads. Every time I went somewhere in a car I felt like I might as well be playing Russian Roulette.
