Just picked up this GX470 a couple of weeks ago. Got the RTT mounted last night with plans for taking it out next weekend...

Are you experiencing any additional noise with the installation of the prinsu rack?

Oh man, one thread full of nothing but GX goodness! I looked high and low for a first gen, but I couldn't find one that checked all the boxes for me. I finally settled for a 5th Gen 4runner. I may have to keep looking after seeing all the photos you guys have posted. The wife will need a new car soon.

Just curious, is the GX a softer ride than a 4r?

It's the same basic suspension design and they ride pretty similar. Just depends how old and worn out the stock suspension is.

I believe the Lexus with airbag rear ends were softer from the factory than a 4runner with coil rear.

When we test drove the Limited 4 runner and the GX, my impression was. The gX rides a bit softer, but hits the bump stops in the rear a lot more. It's also more top heavy. Heavier and taller body on taller tires. Ours is a 2017 GX

The new exhaust. Full stainless tig welded headers back, using factory cats cut to 2.5" to help improve flow and cut restrictions.
