Here's some old pics of my LX (I now have a GX) at Withlacoochee State Forest, my poor Gator plate was hanging on by a thread after going through these water crossings

If the wild wheeling thread on Mud doesn't do it, then you won't be changing over.

my mind is already made up, just waiting to be able to sell the jeep and find the LX! THE funny thing is that before i bought my jeep (02 grand cherokee overland) i was ready to buy a 96 land cruiser with the lockers, very good condition, but i couldn't get a loan on it because i had just sold a camaro ss i had and the loan hadn't been cleared yet. so while i was waiting, another guy came and bought the LC. after that, i couldnt' find one within a reasonable distance, so i spent twice the money on the jeep because i just had to get a rig that i could be comfortable in that would wheel well without spending too much on mods.
i lifted it, put some 31's on it and wheel the hell out of it. it does very well with factory limited slips in front and rear axles and facotry rock rails and skid plates, but it still isn't a toyota!
so once this jeep is paid down a bit more, its ' up for sale and i'm definitely in the market for a locked LC or LX450. i'd rather get the Lx so i can keep the lexus family growing; plus i love to freak people out by wheeling something they never would even take on a gravel road...

You don't need a snork for that little puddle of water you are crossing there. and the after pics are not worth the drive thru.. try something more intense.. you seem like that hummer that is on Cars at the end of the movie.. whom hasn't ever been off-road before.. Funny.. I laugh.. Ha ha .. you want to see some real off road head over to some Rover forums..
