    TGPWS 7: New Year. See if we can wash the stink off.

    Came across this photo in my files from past trips, I think it is kind of cool. Taken just outside the Bisti Wilderness in New Mexico. No real wheeling during that trip, just four days of hiking. This was my campground for two of those days.

    Gen1 and Gen2 Roof racks and Molle Panels

    I just installed the slim aluminum rack with mesh, so I thought I'd give it a quick review... Service was excellent, it was less than three weeks from order to delivery, and Robert kept me up-to-date on the progress the entire way. Construction and finish were outstanding, the welds were...

    OffRoad/P4X Axle into Automatic X/S/SE

    3.36. If at some time in the future I decide to go with a lift and big tires, I'll have it re-geared lower. Right now it is perfect for what I normally do, but as I get more experience I might get more adventurous. I need to find some folks to wheel with.

    OffRoad/P4X Axle into Automatic X/S/SE

    The diff swap is complete, thank you all for your advice and encouragement. The only snag was that the rear output seal on the differential began leaking after a week or so, but I half expected that to happen from what i have read on the forums, so I was not disappointed or surprised. I should...

    TGPWS 7: New Year. See if we can wash the stink off.

    I have had good luck with banaba, gymnema and alpha lipoic acid. They were recommended to me by several other diabetics when I started my diabetes 'adventure', and I could see the results on my meter. I credit them with keeping me off insulin for the last 10 years.

    OffRoad/P4X Axle into Automatic X/S/SE

    A couple questions... Any way to test the e locker to see if it is working properly when the differential is off the vehicle? I want to be sure t is working before I install everything. Do the springs need to be removed to do the swap? I've seen sites that claim that the job can be done with...

    OffRoad/P4X Axle into Automatic X/S/SE

    I figured as much. I found one for $250 from the same place I got my rear differential (probably from the same truck), I will order it on Monday. I'll save the original driveshaft for the (inevitable) lift in the future. The mod bug bites hard! The adventure will really begin when I have...

    OffRoad/P4X Axle into Automatic X/S/SE

    I am in the process of gathering the parts to swap an M226 into a 2013 Xterra S. I am maintaining stock height. Will the driveshaft need replacing also? I have read some reports that using the original driveshaft will cause the rear seal on the transfer case to eventually leak, but other folks...

    Welcome in to the Nation

    Howdy All! Have had my 2013 Xterra S, automatic, for about a year now. Have added skids, a rear bumper/tire carrier sliders and heavier rear springs/shocks so far. Waiting on a plate bumper from Shrockworks to add a winch and 650# coilovers/shocks. I'm beginning to gather parts to switch out...
