They look identical to the 4Runner 3rd row seats. Each of those seats weigh 50 pounds for a combined 100 pounds. If one plans on keeping the GX for the long haul and doesn't use the 3rd row, why...

I have an ARB Bumper on my FJ. It is a pretty awesome top quality product. It's a little on the heavy side, but I don't mind it. Plus it's one of the few airbag compliant bumpers out there.

Yes! That's exactly what roof-top tents are for, to keep you off the ground from predators, snakes, and wet ground if it downpours. A big must have for camping since the cargo area of the GX is...

If you sell it or trade it in, do it soon. In my search for a used 2010-2013 GX with CRAWL control, I've seen the 2010's take a nice sized hit in resale value. It looks like they'll be hovering...

The GX470 4.7L V8 uses a timing belt while the GX460's 4.6L V8 uses a timing chain. You won't have to worry about doing the massive and expensive 90,000 mile timing belt maintenance on the GX460.

You are correct. It is recommended that rear differential, transmission, and transfer case breathers be raised if water crossings are anticipated. It is also known as a "scuba mod".
