Intro: After going back and forth over what I want to do to my X, I have settled on making it a camping/hunting/fishing rig. Modifications will be minor, i.e no T-swap, minimal lift (if any), no armour, no approach bumper

For now I am just trying to keep it on the road. I'm having awful troubles with the front end and as the title says this is a budget build (read: tightarse)

I've decided to post the cost of things I have done to the X. My whole deal is budget mods, so I thought I'd share the price of them. All amounts are in Canadian dollars and for those of you in the states (most of you I gather), Kijiji is like Craiglists

Added KO2s (265/75/r16), such a difference! She's shaping up to be a real hunting rig now!
