Just saw and sat in a fully decked out one at Daytona and was totally impressed. Care looked badass in person and inside is awesome.

Congrats Rob, great rig. Agree that everybody needs a truck if some sort in the arsenal.

Is there a factory tow option for the Alfa? Does it have an air suspension? I like the Alfa with the V6TT.

I have been towing with Cayenne Turbos for 13 years, but a few months ago I could not find a decently priced Cayenne Turbo to trade-in my previous one and I went to a Yukon XL Denali.

On paper the Yukon is a good tow vehicle, but fair and square, the Cayenne (my last was a 958.1) is a better tow vehicle: better brakes, better power delivery, better steering, better seats and driving position, better stability systems in low grip conditions (Wet, Sand, Snow), better trailer control (I have an open aluminum trailer and my cars + trailer don't reach more than 4,800 lbs of towed weight).

Siq LX. LandCruiser/LX the best made production vehicle on Earth, built to last a quarter-century straight out of the Toyota box. Enjoy!

05 long in the tooth? Come on, for a Lexus land cruiser that is barely broken in. Congrats on the new one! Great choice.

I know, barely broken in! It only has 117k miles too. Easily has another 200k miles in her.

Thanks!

Congrats on the LX. I am looking into the LX vs Landcruiser. I am little concerned about the air suspension on LX long term vs Landcruisers more traditional suspension. I am not clear on if the LX has air suspension or a hydraulic variation of it?

.
well not from the factory because of the undertray diffuser in the Quadrifoglio TTV6 but the base engine cars have tow hitch.
I think guys have had aftermarket ones put in , but I sold both the tow vehicle and trailer and all extra wheels/tires, so will just drive the RS to the track on street tires
trying to simplify I guess
i put Pirelli Scorpion winter ❄️ tires on and it is so much better than any other SUV or truck i have owned in the snow and ice
got 18” snow yesterday and 🍀 was a beast in the snow today
The Sierra was too long to fit in my garage so I would have been out at 5am scraping ice and snow every morning

Haven't really had any issues on my air suspension in my 2005. Sometimes it seems to get a bit confused, but turn it off and back on and all is well. I think they are good.

Just make sure you get a LC with KDSS(kinetic dynamic suspension system.). Resale on LCs are higher because of higher demand and actually $10K lower new.

Congrats on the truck. LX / Landcruiser's are among the best made vehicles on the road. I toy with the idea of selling my 15 Range Rover Sport S/C for a 15+ Land Cruiser.

Thanks! The LX is a beast. You won’t regret it!
