2007 Desert Stone Xterra Off-Road
Join Date: Jul 2008
Location: In a burb northwest of Detroit. Enemy territory.
Just installed an Invisibrake system to let me tow her behind the new-to-us RV. Tested it and everything appears to work just fine. Also, finally got the entire interior reinstalled, which is nice. So much quieter with all of the plastic trim in there.
Side note: I'm at 226K right now and have to, after we get back from our first official RV camping trip, I've got to do my precheck of the X for goneMOAB. I'm getting a humming sensation at times, which may be the front wheel bearings going (again - thanks Mordor roads!), or potentially a u-joint going.
Aside from that, one oil change, fluid levels check, and making the sure the winch is working well should be enough for me to feel good about the trip.
That aside, my first clutch went out at 120K miles and I'm now at 226K. If all things hold the same, I'm pretty close to this failing again. But, unlike last time, I won't have to pay someone to replace it - I'll get the joy of that all by myself.

At the rate I'm going I should have an ExPo vehicle ready in roughly 6.3 years. It'll be pimpish. **Joins in 08, 6 years later he's dual lockered, RTT'ed and on schedule for his signature. Well done sir. - Surf and Snow, 5/9/14**
