$476 for front driver hub bearing assembly, including labor.

idk not too bad. part from advance auto was $250 itself and i dont have the time to do it myself right now, we are taking a trip up into the rockies in 2 days so i needed it done and they could do it then.

Stans alignment and brakes in denver. good place.

of course now my radio ( pioneer) doesnt have any sound. cool.

jumping jack has been making these lightweight, rugged off grid campers for almost 20yrs. Jumping Jack Trailers - New & Used Trailers, Service, Financing, and Parts in Salt Lake City, UT, near Bountiful and Murray
generally they are marketed to the desert/BLM ground campers or western hunting base campers. very rugged. optional dual queen beds with a fold up table and almost 8' of ceiling height.
I absolutely love my Jumping Jack. It's about 10 years old now and still works like a charm. Only had to replace one of the shocks two years ago from constant opening and closing. Cost 60 bucks.

Debating on regearing to a factory 3.69 as well. Interested to hear your feedback
Well just took the Xterra out for its first drive with the new lift, wheels, tires, and new axles. The new 3.69 gears definitely woke it up. It had more get up and go on the bottom end now with the new setup. Went from 29” tall tires and 3.13 gears to 33.5” and 3.69. Feels a lot better with throttle resonance and acceleration.

Got a set of ADO UCAs during their sale and got them on this week. It’s probably a combination of the cbc I was experiencing from my ado bilstein lift w/ heavy springs and the fact that my stock ucas had 120k miles on them, but my ride quality totally improved. Softer and more responsive going over expansion joints and bumps on the highway. Wish I had done this sooner.

How are you liking the new gears? Any initial affects on MPG that you can notice?

did a bunch of work on the rear end recently.

brakes , new rotors, pads and shoes, just needs a fluid flush.

new kyb gasadjust shocks on the rear axle as well, they feel much better than the old worn out ones they replaced.

also up front installed a new radio( cheap BOSS brand but its 100% better than the 10-15 y/o system it had that no longer worked!) man that was a pita due to the way the po had a system set up and then when they traded it in they just ripped out what they wanted.

it was a complete nightmare of wiring but i finally figured that i could just do away with 90% of it as i wasnt using gps or hands free or steering wheel controls.

Just got my 2010 off road manual two weeks ago here is the list so far:

  • Maintenance: New fluids, headlights, and spark plugs. Restored exterior plastics and headlights. Only thing left is to fix the broken brackets on the Nismo CAI the previous owner put in.
  • Pioneer dmh-wc5700nex head unit, spent too much on this but it ticked all the boxes for me with wireless carplay being #1. Loving it so far! Also went with Axxess ASWC-1 and the bluetooth bypass to retain the factory steering wheel controls (and re-mapped them to something sensible)
  • Backup camera
  • ARB 2000mm Awning + attachable room on the way, with fourtreks awning mounts
  • Bunch of new camping gear in preparation for my first summer ever with something capable off road in the PNW

Idk what it is about the Xterra but I can't stop buying stuff for it and I just love this vehicle. Next on my list: recovery gear, Nismo front bumper (I missed the sale, so might wait until I can find a better deal).. then going to try to hold off as best I can before I go broke.

First "mod" on the X I picked up a couple weeks ago. Replaced the street tires the previous owner had on this thing. Put on some Toyo Open Country AT3's in 265/75/16 (E load). I can notice the extra 10 lbs per tire, but it's not as bad as I expected. Weird note: according to both Toyo's website and Discount Tire's, the white lettering sidewall version is a quarter inch taller than the black side wall for the same size. I may have got the white if I knew that. Regardless, I'm happy with the look and feel of them so far. I won't go on the tire thread and give it a 10/10 after my first mile on pavement :sneaky:, but I look forward to putting them through their paces after I yank off the side steps and mud flaps then hit some dirt.

Had a decent haul from the junkyard over the weekend. Found a wrecked SE trimmed Pathfinder. Debating whether to use the Pathfinder sunglasses holder with two inoperable switches or go with the larger sunglasses holder from a Bluetooth enabled frontier.
Any thoughts as to using the momentary sunroof switch for a function on the X? I was thinking garage door opener, but I believe the gentex mirror comes with homelink. I also considered a "polite" horn function. Like a weeoo-weeooo the light is green, wakey wakey, or the police electric horn buzz. The larger holder - if I go with it - probably be a rocker switch gang.
