    Honestly, most cheap safes scare me. Someone did a test a few years ago with a bunch of those pistol safes, it was scary how many of those could be opened by a 2 year old by just dropping it or popping the back off with a metal ruler...

    I am slowly getting ready to hang myself from reading thread after thread on rims/wheels, want new shoes for Natasha but damn should it be this confounding?

    Took a couple minutes and rotated my tires. It's a little early but they are scalloping on the edges a good bit and wanted to get ahead of that. Think I'm going to have to cut back my intervals.

    So today I did good wash, then used a hydrophobic ceramic wax. Then dried, detailed sprayed. Rain X'ed the glass, clean wheels and tires. Used trim detail on all the plastics also. Ready for caca weather.

    Let's see. Destroyed the rear carrier and 2 passenger axle shafts, threw a used locker and passenger shaft in. Promptly destroyed the bearing on the axle and abs sensor. Bought new oem loaded shafts, so new shafts, new abs sensor and new to me locker and she's back on the road.

    Attempted to install PRG Felton steering rack bushings but couldn’t get the rubbers out so I guess they’re okay for now.

    Polyurethane motor mounts weren’t too bad to install.

    Currently finishing up the front bumper with the mar-hyde bumper coating as recommended in @General_Tarfun ‘s build thread. I don’t think I did as good of a job though.

    What's going on with it? Touchup is incredibly easy with that stuff so don't get too worried yet.

    It seemed like the scuffing from my prep work was showing through as scratches. Haven’t seen what it looks like in the daylight yet, but I ended up putting like 4 coats on.

    Oh ok, yeah anything like that will be visible since it acts more like a dye on plastic. If it's super rough looking try wet sanding it smooth again and repainting, you should really only need 2 coats.

    Got 3 packages in the post today, a 4wdabc sticker to replace the one left on the Land Rover, a replacement OEM trailer wire (my original had been pinched between the bumper and the spare tire), and my 2” lift pucks.
    Will be going down to the hardware store tomorrow to pick up the assorted bolts for the lift

    Changed out the rear diff fluid this morning. The 'New Grape Scent' stuff Nissan sells doesn't smell much like grapes but it does smell a lot less like ass so it's good by me!

    Walking up to the X, habit of looking at bumper and under frame as I approach. Noticed a Object on passenger Rear Axle @ Springs..
    Thought to self.. CRAP busted spring??. Busted Bracket for Leaf springs. OR hope just a dang stick, for i was Driving some Logging roads not long ago.

    Set beer down. Looked at Object AH nuts!!. its the Bracket that holds Air bag to Leaf Spring.. Lost nut, somewhere.. Bolt must have Bounced out as well.
    Held in place By one Bolt & Nut. As photo indicates. NUTS!!!

    Leaf spring 1.JPG

    hmmm.. Grab socket set.. wire cutter.. Walk the ditch near Barbwire fence.. Find chunk of wire!. This should work


    Leag spring Fix 1.JPG Leaf spring 2 Fix.JPG

    adjusted nut, add wire.. Tighten Nut DONE!!!. Drink beer in odd Angle to wash down road dust.

    235 miles later Still holding. Will pick up New bolts this week. and Replace both.. ( Driver side nuts Tight! )


    Lucky to have Socket set inside, and few Pliers to fix.


    Grabbed New Bolt.. Guessed on size.. Crap!!!. wrong size & Length..
    it's 3/8" carriage. not 5/16" But least its More secure then the Dang Wire.. Carriage bolt.JPG

    Looks like it would have most likely slid over into the tire and wrecked the bag!

    I make it a habit to do this. Looks for large puddles or pieces hanging off...

Wash, Wax and started running wiring to the back for some lighting and other accessories. Finally got around to installing some proper tie downs in the place of the plastic ones on the hatch frame. Used rivnuts to mount the Ancra aircraft style tie downs. The anchor can be removed when not in use.

    Ordered valve cover gaskets, upper plenum gasket, spark plug tube seals and a PCV valve. Gotta get by the stealership and get them this week. It'll be the last time I order those gaskets from Nissan though. From here on out it'll be Felpro. Those prices are outrageous.

    Gotta do the thermostat soon too and I'm probably going to do the fan clutch while I'm in there.

    Replaced EGR solenoid. I'm running code p0400 if I remember correctly. Already replaced the EGR valve as well, and the service engine soon light is still on. Further knowledge or suggestions would be appreciated

    Have you reset the ECM? If not it might take several drive cycles to complete the self tests to turn off the light.

    I've driven a decent bit but I'll continue to. I'm just not sure how many miles or how long it should take.

    Did you intentionally get that color so it would match your skis?

    Ill have to keep a look out for yours if I head far enough into BC for a ski trip. Usually just go to Revelstoke in February, but will see what happens.

    As Bob Ross would say...that’s a happy little accident.

    Revvy is a great spot, loved skiing there.

    Rolled over 100k last week. Oil change, tires rotated and had the underbody sprayed with Krown. Just in time as we're expecting 6-8 inches of snow today.

    Placed an order for a hefty aluminum front bumper!!!

    Now I just have to figure out which winch should accompany it...

    Leaning towards the Smittybilt X2O 10k w/synth line.

    Sidebar, anyone know what fitment is like with the X2O and the Hefty aluminum...?
