JAOS-Customised Lexus LX “OFFROAD” Is The Off-Road Luxury Barge The World Is Missing
JAOS worked their magic on the Lexus LX “OFFROAD” and we love the result.
Japan Offroad Service (JAOS) and Lexus worked together to bring this Lexus LX “OFFROAD” one-off custom SUV to the Tokyo Auto Salon 2022. The treatment is simple but effective – give the Lexus LX some off-road tyres, some rims that look ok with mud on them, and a few other tasteful off-road accessories. We have to say, it looks fantastic.
The LX “OFFROAD” JAOS ver. is based on the existing Lexus LX 600 “OFFROAD” model. JAOS has been around since 1985 and has been a leading off-road accessories manufacturer in Tokyo since then. They were the first to make the first all-stainless steel modular bull bar, the first all-stainless steel bull bar with a 6-point safety mount and manufactures a host of other parts.
For the Lexus LX “OFFROAD” JAOS Ver., the company has added a bunch of carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) parts to the mix, along with some really nice tires and wheels. Here’s a list of what’s new:
- Front Skid Protector (CFRP)
- Rear Skid Protector (CFRP)
- Over Fender type-R (CFRP)
- Wheels (JAOS TRIBE CROSS 20×9.0J Titanium Gold)
- Tires (TOYO TIRES OPEN COUNTRY A/TIII 285/55R20 Not for sale in Japan)
- Mud Guard III
- Door Handle Protector
Here’s the press release with more information,
