A little bit over $1,000 with shipping. $967.65 without shipping according to my record log.

I got pics of the Safari bar, Tail Guards, and lights mounted. I'll post them up tomorrow.

Plan on wiring the lights tomorrow!

Thanks

And no the BB is not on. Still tryin to get my friend to help me install it. But the ground clearance issue isn't that bad, I only lose MAYBE 1" max. But it looks so badass.

Also ordered a new 6 ton bottle jack and 2 jack stands.

OK so I have been slacking with this thread. Between work and whatnot, I haven't been able to get much done.

Today I installed the Rough Country Steering Stab.

Some pics from the past month.

So I finally got my new exhaust setup on. The muffler knocks on the frame rail on idle, not such a big deal for such a nice sound. Pics up soon.

Did go wheeling today though!

Very sketchy bridge


Friends sexy Xterra

Powerlines

Stolen Car? Its actually really clean.


Scoping out the run

By far my favorite pic

Not yet. I plan on going back within the next 2 days so if its there most defiantly. It seems like it was just put there. No mud, dust and not vandalized. It is registered till 2010 and even has EZpass.

I was a little sketched out. But that was the weirdest thing on the trail that day. It had a bunch of towels, a map, and like a bag of chips.

Its not like its in the middle of no were. Houses were only a couple hundred feet away. And I do understand that it would be better to call right away, but it seems like its been there within 2 weeks ago.

Didn't see any means of forced entrance or damage and the ignition wasn't busted open. I'm thinking someone drove back there and either broke or it got stuck. Just left it and waited for a buddy with a truck.

Either way I'm probably calling the cops tomorrow or the day after.

OK so I looked at tires today and I am stuck between the Goodyear MT/R or the General Grabber AT2... I'm leaning more towards the MT/r since I only yo sand/mud wheelin. I heard that the GG AT2 gets mud stuck in the tread very easily.

What do you guys think?

are you wheeling on power line easements? If so it is illegal and will get you banned on here for talking and posting about it. Also illegal wheeling is what gets us banned from legal areas. So please clarify where you are wheeling at?
