Looking at this one online 2008 Lexus GX470 Sport. Looks nice, but would like local eyes on it.

I may be able to get to it, but it would be Monday at the earliest.  My office is out there, but I'm working from home the rest of this week (over an hour away).

things i notice are 57 pics but no engine bay pics? No Free CarFax on the listing.  At that mileage and age the timing belt should have been replaced at least once. If there is no record budget $750-1k for that.

I noticed the same thing. I sent an inquiry to the dealer asking about the timing belt. They responded with the form letter, with the typical bs from dealers and asked if I had any questions. Of course I do, I already asked you one, and you didn't respond. My guess is that the belt hasn't been replaced.

That was odd. I found the Lexus, but wasn't able to test drive it. I'll PM you full details.

Update - managed to get a test drive. I'm sending an updated PM. Short version: Sounds like it needs a wheel bearing. Otherwise looks in reasonably good shape for the truck's age and mileage.
