Randy - I have my 2006 GX still and this is the 2006 tool kit below. My product specialist told me that all the new GX's are coming in with the stripped down (7 tool) kit.

Default Hmm.

What is the silver tube and handle for on the 2006? I see the two open end wrenches and pliers are a difference. The silver tube and turn handle are inquisitive.

Thanks for Posting enpicture.

I would guess the tube is to remove Spark Plugs.

Default It is.

After a little research I found the tool diagram blow up on Sewell's part site. Looks like none of the GX460's came with a full set for the plastic inlay. In case your curious, they are listed under engine and they are the first schematic that pulls up under that subheading.

Additionally after looking at the GX470's it seems, all the tools were included including the spark plug tool were included.

Since the spark plugs are different for the 460 & 470, perhaps they use a different wrench size?

Otherwise, just decontenting.

OR - The silver tube and handle are specific to the 470's Wheel locks (just as the small silver tube is for my wheel locks on my '14)?

The long silver tube with handle is for the spark plugs. The short one you are referring to is the lug lock key made by McGard.

Default Spare chain?

Does your spare have a chain dangling down like this?

...Weigh saving.....I think Lexus wants to save few ounces to increase mileage....

I hate seeing the the spare tires chain dangling....Thanks for the tips of lowering it then raising it up.

I'd doubt it's a weight issue, I'll bet it's more of a cost savings over a weight savings.

Just my .02

I bought my 2014 GX used, and it came with the Bridgestones. They seem to be ok, but a little loose feeling, even on regular road. They don't seem horrible though.

The Bridgestones only have 5700 miles on them, and some new LTXs will cost $1000 by the time they are installed. So...

1) Do you think I could get anything for my Bridgestones (i.e. Craigslist)?
2) If I can't get anything for my Bridgestones, are the LTX really worth $1000.

I know if my tires were worn out, I would buy the LTXs, but with them only having 5700 miles...

Thanks.
