No Moab for me.  I've been there and like to use my vacation time for new places  ;D

. . . . That shovel bailed my out a few times this weekend. Absolutly not for decoration. I had to dig 3 ft of snow for about 20ft just to get to my truck.


A great reminder to folks to always bring your shovel down off the roof rack and bring it inside with you for the night - never know when you might have to dig your way back to your truck.  Of course, that's probably not something I would ever remember in the real world.

These are just suggestions...........:):)

One week of vacation for Moab.
one week for Thailand
one week for the Jamaica

That's only 15 days. I get 20 so one more week in Canada!

What have you done for your Rig lately.


I decided to splurge on some Bosch Icons. Let's see what all the fuss is about.

I finally made time to mount my trail compressor inside the front bumper on the passenger side.  Had to route the compressors air intake hose up into the fenderand mount its filter by the battery.  Had to buy 4 10mm rubber vibration isolator dampners, fabricate 2 corner "L" brackets, buy a 1/4" inch NPT tap to rethread the compressors fittings, a Pep Boys large 1/4" inch. airline fitting kit anodized in blue and a variety of Home Depot angled fittings, 3' ft. of 3/8" hi pressure hose, and a new 25' ft. roll of 3/8"  orange airline hose.  Total investment just to mount:  @$80 and 2 days (had to remove bumper and fix a few things).

Well I obviously didn't do this myself. My brothers took it upon themselves to install my rear Shrock bumper for me. Pretty stoked... Minus the stock tire on the tire rack. haha

Damn, it looks really good.  What was your wait time for delivery?

I just added a reversing camera ($15 from China) with park assist to my Boss BV9155B 2-DIN DVD/cd player ($250 + 75 inst.) in my 2000 Xterra today.

Thanks guys, wait time was killer. Took roughly 6 months to get there. I didn't mind though since I knew I would be on deployment for half of that time anyway. The front bumper is there too... that will probably take them a little more time to figure out haha.

Here is the reversing camera, the ceiling-mounted CB speaker, and the tennis balls on the antenna.

I changed out my blue tinted HID lights to plain white HIDs so that I won't be so annoying to Randy/RBduffer.  I mean, I will still be annoying to him (heck, I even annoy myself online), but at least my vehicle won't be so annoying when driving behind him. :)
