    Prime'z X

    This truck was sold in March 2016 to another XN Member. As soon as he posts a built thread, I'll link it here.

    This has been a great truck. I loved it. And it was an absolute blast to build and wheel. If any one has any questions about this build, please ask. I'll be more than happy to answer.

    Begin OP. Post Date 03.10.12

    Here it is the weekend I bought it. Bone stock w/ 65k:
    BROKEN IMAGES!
    Down at Corova Beach, NC:
    BROKEN IMAGES!

    We found some rain water back in the neighborhood behind Corova Beach. Some of it was deep. My horn doesn't work anymore. I wish I had taken some action shots. But here is the aftermath.
    BROKEN IMAGES!

    My new tires which will be installed this weekend (Goodyear Wrangler MT/R's in 32x11.5x15):
    BROKEN IMAGES!

    got a set of charcoal desert runners, but they are in storage...so no pics until install.

    Playing at a buddies house. His place just happened to have a motocross track in the yard when he bought it. Great place to drive over hills and test out new toys. I bent the crap out of my step rails...heh...This is after the PML.
    BROKEN IMAGES!

    One of my cats, Ember, thought that the stack of tires in the kitchen was the coolest thing
    BROKEN IMAGES!


    Anyway, on to the important things

    New tires installed! Still have to do a little trimming though.

    BROKEN IMAGES!

    The desert runners where DEFINITELY the right choice. Also need to pick up two more center caps. Stock 4-bars are boring and lame. heh.

    Trimming complete. It was way easier than I thought to just knock it out w/ a razor knife. This is all I ended cutting off.

    BROKEN IMAGES!

    No more rubbing on full lock or flex. Didn't have to trim anything in the rear.

    CB Prep Work....

    Got the antenna installed (3' Firestik II w/ HD Spring). Used the Firestik door jamb mount and the 18' FireRing coax. I love the cleanliness of the install. Right now the coax is under the back passenger seat because I don't have the radio yet. Xmas maybe.


    BROKEN IMAGES!


    CB Installed! Cobra 29 LX LCD. its a TAD wider than the opening so it took some cutting and creative modding to get it in there, but it fits like a glove now. And the rest of the hole is still kinda useful small stuff.....now I need a new place to throw my sunglasses.

    Right now its hooked up to accessory power...don't know if I want to leave it that way or give it a 100% feed...but thats easy enough to change should the desire get high enough.


    BROKEN IMAGES!
    Body Lift:

    Before:
    BROKEN IMAGES!
    After:
    BROKEN IMAGES!
    I've had several people tell me that now I need bigger tires......but I just bought these! They still have LOTS of life left!

    I actually really like the way the BL works on the X. The only place you can REALLY tell is in the front where that little silver piece of plastic gaps out to the rest of the bumper. And fortunately, I did NOT have to cut the tub for the T-Case shifter. It goes into 4L just fine, and actually has plenty of room to spare.

    This is sitting here in the garage...just waiting to be installed. Eventually.

    BROKEN IMAGES!
    Now I need LOTS of money to get it installed. I'm going to do the compressor and all the wiring, but I don't feel comfortable cracking open the 3rd member.

    Thx for the compliments.

    Krisnherx, actually, I'm in southeastern VA. About an hour and change drive to the Outer Banks. Technically Virginia Beach is closer, but if I ever want to go to the beach, its worth the drive.

    Awesome.

    The coast is about 5 hours from where I live, but man it sure is nice to live in a state with both the mountains and the beach. =)

    Great looking X. Love those tires. It sorta looks like a Tonka truck! I have to say though..id give anything to live next to the OBX! My drive is approx 16 hours so I dont get to go as often as I would like! I was just there this past July so I wont see it again for a few years.

    heh...I'd be perfectly fine w/ that timeline. I go once a year...but its not all that. I'd take the mountains and the trails over the beach ANY day of the week. Plus, the closest actual population center is the area I live in (Hampton Roads/Tidewater, VA) and it blows goats here.

    So I picked up something in my tire yesterday....



    It looks like a damn railroad spike! So that tire is toasted. Since my 32's are just about shot anyway (yes...that section of tread looks great...but the shoulders are almost bald...plus I'm tired of balancing them), I'm need to start shopping for some 33's. I already have the shackles and torsion bars for the lift. However, I still need control arms. But I need tires first. Filling this one up every day sucks.

    Locker is DONE. I took it to the local Heep dealer. Not because they are a Heep dealer, but because they are one of the few shops around here that actually knows how to do offroad work. This dealership has an offroad course behind it and the service manager holds an annual "Open to all" wheeling event that I've been to a few times. Anyway:





    Overall, I'm impressed by the install. They fabbed a bracket up to mount the compressor in that location and if I understand it correctly, this compressor has 2 1/4" NPT outputs on it. Meaning that I can take the other one and pipe it to a small tank for airing up easily. So that's coming down the pipe as well. As an interesting note, the night time illumination on the switches seems to be wired backwards. As I turn up the dash illumination, the lights on the switches go out. If I black out the dash, they are bright as hell. So I'm gonna pull things apart this weekend and see where they tapped in for the nighttime illumination wiring. Because I want the switches to light up with the dash.

    Also, finally finished collecting all the parts for the 3" SL. Got the Calmini uppers, new camber bolts from the local Nissan dealer, AC torsion bars, AC shackles, & extended rear brake line. Just need a good reasonably warm weekend to tear into it.

    Few other things waiting in the wings... I've got the Navara snorkel sitting in the garage right next to a dual gauge A-pilar pod. Already ordered a voltage gauge....haven't figured out what to put in the other spot yet.
