    They purchased a brand new GX470 and have begun the process of building it into a comfortable trail-beater.

    They started by ripping off the bumpers, body cladding and engine cover, trimming the fenders, and adding a mild body lift, as well as custom wheels with beadlocks and off-road rubber.

    Much more to come. :cool:

    The GX470 is what the new Toyota 4Runner *should* have looked like.
    Instead we get this lame chunky 4runner for the next 5-7 years. bleh.

    What a waste of money. It's sad they feel the need to prove it's capability.

    :rolleyes:

    They already did (in addition to Petersen's), now it's time to modify one.

    Besides, it's boring seeing them build Jeeps all the time. :fawk:

    The Ford F-450 Super Duty based EarthRoamer XV-LT is wicked too (in the same issue). :eek:

    The latest issue we have here has the green Avalanche on the cover. They didn't but a body lift on Trailex, they extended the stock suspension components up front and rigged the air suspension in the rear.:eek3:
