Now there are people circling the campgrounds in the morning ready to pounce on a site as soon as someone is pulling out.

paracord held the hood down just fine for the 320 mile round trip

They have a bunch of different kits around. I am sure that you can find a complete one that suites your needs.

As lame as it sounds... I don't remember if mine came with all the factory stuff or not but I want to say it did. I believe there's a wire harness in the back and a rubber line that I've got a golf T in that's plugging for the squirter. The windshield fluid reservoir has 2 pumps in it, one for front, one for rear.

Funny part is I can't remember if it's my jeep or my parents that had all this... That's how little I pay attention to that sorta stuff. LOL

I've been very lucky with my credit. When I was first employed my dad co signed a $1000 dollar loan. When I paid it off I would take out another large loan. I did this all through high school. I've never had a credit card and never had a score less then 725. Ive never been turned down for a loan. The interest rate for my truck is 2.46%. We were approved for a home loan at 3.68%.

I had no problems with the xterra, dirt roads and nothing stock couldn't do. There is a creek crossing, but I saw passenger cars doing it.
So I was telling my dad about how neat these pic's looked and how I would like to go here sometime.. just took a minute to put the lat/lon into Google Maps.. wow, I would have never guessed it was in He Shun Xian, Jinzhong, Shanxi, China.

I know if YSB sees this it will frustrate him and his head might pop cause it's google maps and not google earth but... Those lat,lon took me here.

Looks legit to me.



And the water pictures he posted sure do resemble this area right here...

I wonder how the waterfalls are doing this year. Last year we had that huge snowmelt and they were really spectacular. From everywhere I've been this year, it seems like the water levels are down.
It was worth the trip and I had a lot of fun exploring jeep trails, even if I was a bit nervous because I was solo.

It's kind of in that same part of the country as "central, ut" that I mentioned. I've raced up there and the little I was able to scope out while ripping along on the bike made me want to go back and just explore in general.
