Bought this 2007 OR in January of 2011

Photos:

Don't have many photos right now, but when I bought my X the first week I drove it down here to New Orleans - nothing like testing out a new vehicle like taking it for a drive across the continent! Along the way I passed through Joshua Tree National Park and did a 30(ish) mile 4x4 trail there to test it out..Got stuck once, and unstuck (obviously) and had a great time.

How she sits today:


Day I got her - fresh from the dealership:


About a week later, detour through Joshua Tree :)

More photos to come, and thanks again to this community - I can't begin to detail how much I've learned thanks to you guys!

Crappy pic after POR-15'ing the underbody and skid plates, high heat paint on exhaust and muffler components, and 3M rubberized spray in wheel wheels and other gaps. Seems to be holding up great so far, but imagine next time I take it off-road is when I'll notice how well it's adhered.

oh nice! That ac box is exactly what I want to do with my new X, thanks for the idea! Does the switch just turn on the juice to the box?

Thanks!

So I replaced the stock mud flaps since they were a) cracking and b) digging into the corner pieces. Not cool.

However within like two days of normal driving without the flaps I was kicking up stones, noticeably so. Not wanting to be a douche and wreck someone elses windshield, or my paint, I picked up some standard flexible mud flaps, with a nice off-road pattern on them :)

Also happened to find a keyless entry pad, and mounted it above the drivers door by the wetbox. Love it!

Off for some weekend camping now :)

I might have to go grab a set of those flaps. Since Ive put on my grabber at2s ive gotten 120% more rocks kicking up ...wrecking my door paint. I must have 20 rock chips on the lower 8" of the front doors . Not to mentioned countless chips down the rockers.
