I don't see many red GX's, but I've gotta say, I like it. I'm especially envious of those nice new Michelin LTX MS/2's. I hope your dash is in good shape. Enjoy.

According to etrailer.com, an aftermarket hitch (like Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch or Curt) for a 2005 4Runner is the same part number as a 2005 GX470. I've used etrailer.com before and I can recommend...

an '07 with only 121k = lots of life left in it. Since the service is up to date and it has been well cared for, I would think you would have 3-5 years of relatively trouble free driving.

I think the price of $18k is fair. I paid more for a 2005 with 60k. If this is a Lexus dealer, I would negotiate some kind of deal with the timing belt and 90k service. I would want to have that...
