    I wanted something lightweight and high clearance. Wanted the best approach angle I could get while maintaining some protection. This worked out great

    Small update. New heads should be showing up in the next couple weeks whenever they get pulled. I will be stripping them down and doing a full 100% rebuild on them brand new everything. Gonna have them machined flat and then I will do a mild port and polish on them. Make sure they flow really nice.

    Also have a line on a factory supercharger and all the fixins minus a fuel rail and injectors for dirt cheap. Plan is to buy it and do a 100% teardown on everything and replace all the bearings and seals, doing a port and polish on everything, and having the blower powdercoated by MF Powder Coating/Nisstec and then do final assembly. Goal is to have the entire new setup done the end of the year. After that I will look into doing some form of standalone ECU and tuning everything

    I actually had a set of chromoly shafts for a while that I tossed in. I will have to replace the stub shaft on the on original shaft so it made sense

    Just closed up my oil pan gasket. So far no leaks, have yet to fire the truck up to make sure everything is good to go. Fingers crossed because that isnt a fun job

    When are you going to build yourself a 1/4 elliptical suspension for the rear of your xterra?

    You mean when am I going to 4-link and put coilovers in? When I have a second vehicle and enough space to blow everything apart for a month or two

    Has anyone ever taken the 5 link coil setup out of an R50 and stuffed it into an X ?

    Not that I have seen, the problem is the fuel tank. Unless you go to a custom fuel cell.

    We need to be friends at Moab this year. I have tools, sure. But not like that.

    I think we will be on the same trail on Friday for Steel Bender. Pretty excited to be able to play on the bigger stuff on that trail. Last time I ran it I was limping through with worn centerlink and ended up breaking a leaf center pin

    I’m a guy that carries way too many tools/spare parts on the trail. I know the weight of all the crap limits my trucks capability, however I hate being stuck knowing what I need to make a trail repair is home in my tool box.

    I'm very interested in how you end up choosing what to carry, how you pack it in the truck and if you take all of it with you on the trail (instead of leaving it at the trail head or campground).

    Little bit more Gone Moab prep today.

    Organizing my tools using some Millwauke tool bags I bought from Home Depot. Also making some 1" Bump Stop extensions to help control my coilovers from bottoming out hard.
