BTW - You are missed over at COC.
Hey TJ. Ya been a bit busy since having to do the car seat install mod.
well time to update this a little bit Since I am stuck at work for a little bit longer
received and installed my New InSain Fab rear bumper with swing arm. ( pics to follow when I get home) and also started wiring in a back up camera system with out changing the stock RF head unit ( it still works to my content so why change it). will post pics of the install when it's complete
I also installed a 14" LED light bar between the Mickey Mouse lights on the OR/P4x roof damn. and cleaned up my extra fuse block and all of the extra wiring that goes with it. so far I still need to align the light bar to not signalling ET when I turn it on.
So today, when I was trying to clean up the back of my rig and store all my recovery gear into a Actionpacker, I ended up ripping off the 2 quick fists that are holding my shovel and a bow saw off of the rear hatch, looks like I need to re-think having these items there, and I might even just make a diffrent set up to hold everything in place and add an axe mount on there too.
Was bored the other day so ended up making myself a winch cable drag handle out of some paracord here are a couple pics
Your pictures are broken. I tried to fix them. But I couldn't.
They work for me.

sorry if the links didn't work, I was having issues with the tablet I was using. if they still don't work let me know and I can fix them from my work computer
Installed an oooga novelty horn as well as the M-PAC lolle panel today. Infortunately it was too cold to take pics or videos ( phone froze and died) pics will soon follow once i get a chance
so much shiat I need to do to the X this spring. just looking through the missed maintenance over the last year and a bit.
need to do:
 Brake fluid
 Front diff fluid change
 T case fluid change
 Rear diff fluid change
 Radiator fluid change
 Spark Plugs
 fix stupid rear bumper with swing arm
 fix broken weld nut holding rad skid plate
 clean up wiring from additional lights and stuff I've added over the years
 peel and re bed line front Ironbull bumper
plus probably a lot more once I start working on things. also need to figure out where to dump used fluids around where I currently live. I've got some used oil jugs accumulating around the garage. will also take a coupe minutes to fix the stupid photobucket pictures this weekend.
Around here the parts stores will take your used fluids.
I just need to find a place.
fixed all the photobucked BS as well as added some info to the OP.
some people are asking how i was able to fit 3 car seats in the back seat of the X
the Evenflow Tribute Convirtible car seats is one of the narrower brands and can fit 3 wide in the back of an Xterra ( as well as a 2012 Ford Escape)
we currently have 2 that are rear facing and 1 that is forward facing.
new brakes and brake fluid flushed due to the weather and not having a garage big enough to fit my X I brought it to the local OK tire. while doing the work, they noticed that the right ( passenger side) axle seal and wheel bearing were gone on my rear axle. so changed the axle shaft with the bearing, seal and tone ring assembly. now the truck drives like new.
also ordered a new 11 000 lb winch with synthetic line as well as a red aluminium haws fairlead and front plate attachment. can't wait to get that in the mail. will post pics of the winch and fairlead once I get them in hand
Front bumper stripped down now waiting for a few more parts to arrive and going to be spending a solid day installing the new Runva winch with synthetic rope, new red aluminium haws fairlead with front license plate bracket and new LED bumper lights
No images of the light yet
Had a few minutes to install the Runva winch today
thinking about reworking some mods on the truck this week. i've been thinking about installing a LOBO rack and reworking my strobe light set up. right now I have this in the rear window hanging off of the roof hooks
and 1 of these on each side
I ordered some of these
as well as this strobe light controle module off of Amazon
this is all a start on the new lighting plan and all of the wires of the control module will be attached to a buss bar style hook up to help control the addition and removal of various lights.
I am also looking at how I can make my own roof rack ( full Gobi style rack replacement) but not sure if I can afford a descent tube bender. I was also thinking of making a tube bender that would make radius bends in a square tube. still in the planning phases right now
I......I need this. Where is this? I need a link in my life.
ask and you shall receive
Yeeeeeeeee you've made me happier than one of Jim's cat girls in some stupid anime.
Will be placing an order for these once in the next few days. For the roof rack
And for @Prime I will get you the link once I am on my laptop
Yeeee! Please do.
@ Prime as promised
You're my favorite Canadian
Well started working on some of the lights that I have in hand.
Started by making a stencil to use to ensure things are level on the truck
Then I added the 3 wire water proof connectors to the back of the lights. Once I have the wires ran through the truck, I will connect the female end to those ones but that will happen a diffrent day cause it’s too hot to be doing anything outside today
Love the tablecloth
And I really with that these came with a pre-made cutout template.
tell that to the wife. at least it's not on a pizza lol
I agree about the pre made stencil. but oh well
just placed an order with OTRATTW for 6 new switches as well as on Amazon.ca for the 4 last lights, switch housing as well as one of these let's hope this USB power swithc works
Got the switches ordered from OTRATTW
Now waiting for the rest of the stuff I’ve ordered
You should have told me you were going to buy the bumper light switch. I have one sitting in the xterra you could of had for the price of shipping.
Oh well a bit too late now. Thanks for the offer though
Well 4 new lights were dropped off by UPS today
Now just waiting for the new switch holder and the last switch to show up and then I will be able to re vamp all of the trucks lights
New switch holder came in today. All of the critical parts are almost here. Just waiting on one more package
well got tired of the shotty hindge on my IF swing arm. been looking to do this since about January of this year.so today I grabbed the swawsall and the disk grinder.
started with this just after lunch and progressed untill I had to start cooking dinner
as promised here are the last few pics I took for today.
things left to complete:
- remove old Destaco latch (the mechanism is starting to seize due to it being powder coated with the rest of the bumper)
-relocate trailer wiring harness plug
-remove entire bumper to sand, prime and Bedline.( I was able to remove the powder coat in large pieces)
so today as I was walking out to my truck for lunch I found out that my key ended up breaking. ( see pic below)
besides going to the dealership and getting new ones programmed, anybody have any idea how this can be fixed ? I am messing around with some paracord micro cord right now atempting a temp fix until I can get new ones
