Are Lexus GX 550 Overland Accessories Overpriced?

Lexus GX550 Overtrail Overland Accessories Roof Rack Rock Sliders

Dealerships (aka “stealerships”) are known for adding a premium to vehicle accessories. They justify the added expense by often covering the accessories in the vehicle warranty. Imagine a suspension lift on your Jeep Wrangler that is covered by the manufacturer… Jeep wobble no more! Sometimes dealerships can offer accessories not available anywhere else (at least not easily). But let’s be honest – most of the time they upsell these accessories at the point of sale when people are most likely to make an emotional purchase, intoxicated by the thought of their new vehicle built out to spec and street ready at pickup.

When Lexus announced their new GX 550 would offer true overlanding accessories we were intrigued. We asked ourselves three questions:

  1. Are the Lexus GX 550 Overtrail accessories available elsewhere?
  2. Are Lexus GX 550 overland accessories overpriced?
  3. Can you buy the Lexus GX550 Overtrail overland accessories on your own?

What we found is that there were some surprises. Let me explain. We found that most Lexus GX 550 Overtrail overland accessories are indeed available from other sources. We used Amazon as a comparison since it’s the world’s largest marketplace. We answered the three questions above and captured the results in the table below.


Lexus GX 550 Overtrail Overland Accessories

  • You can definitely purchase most Lexus GX550 Overtrail overland accessories yourself on sites like Amazon and others – and will save yourself money doing it. (It should be noted there are features specific to the new Lexus GX550 Overtrail that are not available such as the full suspension package or GX550 rock rails made by CBI, but these will probably be available (or similar) in the future).
  • Most Lexus GX 550 Overtrail overland accessories are priced competitively, often equal to the price for a similar product on Amazon.
  • We highlighted where there were differences and found that the biggest differences were with Dometic fridge / coolers and Pelican coolers.
  • If you buy every Lexus GX550 Overtrail overland accessory you will spend $2,407 more than buying each product separately.
  • Some products were not available on Amazon in which case we used the accessory manufacturers website pricing.
  • Pricing is dynamic so the Lexus website and/or Amazon website may get updated impacting price variance.
  • Prices do not include installation.

– Page Contains Affiliate Links – Why? (click here to expand) We lose money every month producing the TX:GX Overland website and YouTube channel. Creating content takes time and money – we have to pay for:
  • Website and WordPress hosting
  • Trip videos that cost money for fuel, admissions fees at parks/events, and wear and tear on our vehicle
  • An enormous amount of our time producing this site and the videos (I won’t even begin to calculate that cost!)
Basically, we lose money every month. We use affiliate links and YouTube monetization to try to reduce this monthly loss but they don’t pay much. We lose about $20 per month just from our website costs (not including trip costs). Purchases made via this website using affiliate links sometimes result in us making a small commission (usually 2-4%) that we use to keep the lights on. But since we lose about $20 per month (not including trip fees) you can see we are definitely not “in it for the money” – we do this out of a love for helping other people enjoy the outdoors and overlanding, to help people get started and find gear to make their trips more successful, and to produce videos that inspire and entertain our viewers. Even though we lose money each month, we are committed to helping the world we live in. Please read “Who Our Affiliate Links Benefit” to see a list of the causes and charitable organizations we donate to. Thank you for your understanding!
– Who Our Affiliate Links Benefit (click here to expand) TX:GX Overland is about experiencing the outdoors and doing so in a responsible, sustainable way. Without the trees, the forests, the clean babbling brooks and the open trails we enjoy while overlanding we simply couldn’t exist. Therefore, we are committed to helping organizations that support our outdoor adventures. Though we do not make a profit from the TX:GX Overland website or YouTube channel we still make donations to worthwhile causes. We make donations to the following organizations:
  • OneTreePlanted
  • Tread Lightly
We have reviewed these organizations and determined they fit our purpose. We do not have the resources to do an exhaustive background check of their prior/current activities, partnerships, board members, etc. so if they are “doing something bad” we’re not aware of it. We hope our donations to these organizations is doing the world some good – if you disagree with these choices we respect your decision, please respect ours.
