Nice jimbo.
We got the wife a GX460 a few months back. It is an awesome ride, probably the best riding/ driving vehicle we have owned.

It did pretty well on the Kofa Wildlife Refuge last weekend. I winced a little at the bouldering I had to do, but didn't whack body panels on anything.

Lift coming next week.
Then my bumper, winch and soon rock rails.

Wheels and tires are on
Flat Roof rack is installed
Goose Gear rear Floor is installed. More to follow.

Here's how modded it is as of Sunday, Jan 17th.

Jimbolio

Phoenix is looking sexy. Precious lives on in Vader, even left some blood (red paint) on the Box Canyon Waterfall climb.

Still in the shop, but the axles, Icons, and OME springs are all IN.

Rock rails came in the mail on Wednesday. Can't wait to assemble all my parts.
