Interesting to hear that ATRAC is automatically on in 4WD low. That is the first I've heard of that and was concerned we don't have ATRAC where other Toyotas have a button. Can anyone confirm ATRAC...

1/2 inch increase in radius should not be a problem. Worst case you will have to deal with a screw in the front which can be pushing in with a heat gun.

The Prado is a fixture outside of North America and that is not going to change anytime soon. A unibody TX, if it were to happen, would be a market change starting in the US, not a...

P rated. Noise has increased now that the tires have ~20k miles but they are by no means loud. I recall the Duratracs feeling a bit more mushy in cornering when I first put them on relative to the...

I have 275 65 18 Duratracs which have a fairly aggressive tread. They rub for sure on a screw located 6 inches inside the wheelwell in the front at about the center of the tire height. It only...

My dealer gives free car washes for life with a purchase, for example. Maybe any lexus can drive in and get that but I doubt it. This has great value if the dealer is close. You might need to...

I think very few have changed out the suspension. You may have to research 5th gen 4runner work assuming it will transfer over. Good luck and be share to share the info back here once you have a...

I don't find the GX to have nose dive, but maybe body role in the base. Did your Trail have KDSS? I have owned a base 2014 and luxury 2016 and the air suspension really works. I go firm for...

275 and 285 will work according to threads you can find on this site, but you have to heat gun one wheel well screw on each front to avoid noise when turning. I run 275 and can vouch for those.

I said nothing of margin. I am talking supply (low) and demand (high) and that this thread is misleading potential buyers on what they'll be able to accomplish on a base model.

Both have LED but base does not have fogs. Different rims. Base has nulux or fake leather and premium has leather. Nulux is actually really nice in terms of wear (i.e., it looks great over time). ...

It should fit. Search for daystar or icon in this forum and you will find 4runner kits from each of these companies installed on a 460.

Those are 26" tires, so not even remotely applicable to a GX. Even yokohamas geolander in 275 65 18 is ok with 7.5 rim. Your not helping the board advance its knowledge with these posts.

You need the spare to be close in size to the other three tires else the traction control will go wild and I believe the differentials will be working harder too as tires spin at different speeds. ...

He's asking about the 460 without air suspension.

I have towed my 3500 pound boat with my base model. Does just fine. Tongue weight is prob 10% of that total. 5000 pounds won't be a ton of fun...

Well, you can use the diff lock at any speed. I like having it locked in snow as I find braking is improved.

I agree. I wanted to push the NX on my wife, but it's so damn blah.

I may keep my GX for a long while if they take away BOF. I am not yet convinced however given the 2014 refresh.
