I learned that the dashboard altimeter maxes out at 13,000'
We made the drive from Boise, ID to Ouray, CO and then up and over Imogene Pass, down into Telluride. All the jeepers were confused seeing a Lexus up there. And even more confused when I said we got lost looking for Starbucks.

Got around to swapping some of the power steering fluid with fresh ATF, used a battery filler (fancy turkey baster with a narrow neck so it fits into the PS resevoir) to remove the old fluid, and topped it up. I'll drive it a bit, and do it again, and continue doing so until I'm happy with the color of the fluid. This marks the final fluid on this truck, I've finally finished baselining it!!!
Just in time to hand the keys over to the wife. My Land Cruiser has landed in Vancouver, and I fly out to collect it at the end of the month! I also bought a '99 MB E55 AMG wagon which will land in Vancouver Sept. 10, so my time in the Lexus is numbered. It's been a good trip, and I thank the forum for all the help over the last year and a half.

I purchased a 2005 with 80000 miles two months ago and installed OME 884 front springs and re adjusted the airbag sensor got 2.5 inches of lift and installed Durtrac 255/75/17 tires. Stock shocks were replace by Lexus dealer in Las Vegas where i purchased it 5000 miles ago so i left them alone. It rides better than stock and now I have plenty of clearance for the upcoming Colorado winter now I need to hit some trails and test it out
. The Topsider worked great; I removed the oil drain plug to see if I got it all and not a single drop of oil came out of that hole. I've long been a fan of Purolator Filters and used a PSL10241 Synthetic.
I also replaced the bottom to one of the 3rd row seats which was cracked when I bought it. The part was pricey but not seeing that big ugly cracked piece of plastic all the time makes it worth it.
Up next: remove the running boards. The right one was bowed up in the middle when I got it. I like the look without them much better anyway.
