Here are some key features that caught their eye:

  • Removable Front Components: The GX 550 has removable sections in the front bumper, hinting at the potential for increased ground clearance and improved approach angles – perfect for tackling challenging terrain.
  • Textured Fender Trim: The GX 550′ textured fender trim offers a rugged aesthetic that aligns well with Westcott Designs’ focus on off-road functionality.
  • Removable Inner Fender Support: Similar to the Tacoma, the GX 550 features removable inner fender supports, making installation of Westcott Designs’ rock sliders a breeze.
  • Bolt-On Running Boards: Unlike previous models where the running boards blend seamlessly into the body, the 2024 GX 550 features bolt-on running boards. This design allows for easier removal and replacement with Westcott Designs’ rock sliders, offering superior protection on the trail.
