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**

Shrockworks, ordered 1/1/19 delivered 4/8/19, overall solid build. This is with the high lift and CB antenna mounts also. My Gobi ladder has the left notch for this high lift clearance.

2012 Pro-4x with just under 45K on her. Replaced rear springs with OME Dakar, rear shocks with Rancho 9000XL, front struts with Rancho Quick Lift. Also added the Timbren Active Offroad Bumpstops on the rear. The ride quality is much better. She's at the alignment shop this morning, so not many miles on the new suspension yet. Looking forward to getting her out on the trails.

First trip out 4 wheeling this weekend and I was amazed by how the x handled. I got into something very hairy and thought I might he in trouble but it just kept crawling right on up. I got out with the camera to get the 2 modified toyotas behind me heading up and the obstacle and they turned and kept on the main trail. I guess it looked as bad as it felt.

I did manage to destroy both brand new mevotech end links so the fsb has been removed for now.

Added some pictures. This was on Cleghorn Trail. I need to edit the dash cam video still but will upload that to youtube and share it here sooner or later.

Our very kind neighbours across the street are lending us this little beauty for a couple early season camping trips! Hooked everything up to the x to test and check it all out yesterday. Excited for first camping trip of the season on Friday!
