Old guy, old truck...still running


Test Drive
I live Off the Grid (OTG). Had Pathfinders for a long time. Very few issues. Currently, mine is a 2004 (the last of the series before Ghosn screwed everything up). It has only 120,000 miles (fer yoooo 'Mericans, 180,000 kms for Canucks). I live a long ways outside of Campbell River on Vancouver Island. I also own a 1990 Previa (JDM) alltrac. It's good, too. Similar mileage - 185,000 kms. I joined the forum because I pretty much have to fix my own vehicles and, of course, I am more than mechanically challenged, I am a bit stupid and getting old (73). OTG'ers chew up tires but I now have Toyo and they seem to be the best...maybe BFG All terrain.....they were good, too. Everything else has proven too thin-skinned to take all the coarse gravel. Half my time is logging road. What I would like to do is learn of inexpensive parts and accessories I can add to make it better and, right now...some advice regarding A/C units. I would also like to lift the Previa 2 inches....and that seems impossible without spending gajillions on lift kits (for a $500 car?)

Methinks 'Demented' may be a man after my own mind....(except for the pineapple on pizza. I am not THAT demented!)
See? You get it.
