"I have two had two Land Cruisers (1976, 1994). I wanted a 2nd generation 100 series (i.e., 5spd, with better engine). I only use it for recreation (highway, back- and off-road). I considered GX470s and drove them. GX470s have better availability. LCs 100 series 2003-2007 are harder to find. I kept my options open and was lucky to find an LC in very good condition (with great service records) locally on Craig's List. I prefer a tailgate to a rear door. "
