4th Gen T4R to 2nd Gen GX

Good day to you, Just wanted to extend a forward apology, I as a new (to me) GX owner will, (likely) be cluttering your forum with FNG posts. I have been active in the 4th gen forum over the years, and truly appreciate the tolerance and unending understanding that the members over there have afforded a pleb such as I.

Thanks! I had my T4R for 8 years, and hope the GX can repeat or exceed that performance.
Pick it up tomorrow. had some minor paint work to clean up before I'd take possession.

You moved up to a tuxedo on steroids. Many don't get it.

Congrats on the upgrade! I'm sure you'll be please with the decision for years to come.

I've also had my 4th gen for 8 years and 150k miles. Preparing to make the same change as you. I'm looking for a 2010-2013 GX. Also hoping it provides me with another 8 years and 150k pain-free miles.

Was looking at ML63's and GX's I think the implied reliability is the long bet. I can say without equivocation that its by far the most comfortable ride I've had, It came with Goodyear-SRAs which im not impressed by, looking at Cooper AT3 4S ~September. I've also found that most of the 4R stuff fits, SpiderTrax are direct bolt, the air filter is a 99% fit, (AFE Pro Dry). May look at adding Multi-Terrain Select, and Crawl Control.

Good luck on your hunt, do you prefer the pre-facelift?

I do prefer the pre-facelift. It's reminiscent of the 470.
