Comments: - Maybe a bit overdue, I need to throw out some thank you's to some folks on here I begged, borrowed, stole, copied, and brought s%$t from. NickX, LBX and various others. My old mind gets everyone confused with all the other forums.
Purpose of this X to haul around the pup and sleep outdoors in (Not a DD). Which is why all I needed was a stock one. Then I caught this thing my doc calls a mod flu and Gone Moab fever. Apparently, it's 100 percent contagious, and the cure is of less than reasonable cost. But, I saved 15% by switching to GEICO. :D

Awesome build thread. It's amazing how far your rig has come in such a short time!

Now you're making me wish I HAD decided to T-Swap! haha (It's too late... I received the Xterra replacement steering rack, and Moog Xterra LCAs today).

Thank you @JFanaselle . Your making me Jelly with that sexy roof rack and headlight retro. Oh, and that extra gas tank you carry for floor mat snow sledding.  lol ;D :-X

Glad you got the replacements for your truck. We need more of your amazing pix, videos, and adventures.

Update:

Well, finally broke down and got a fridge. We added a Dometic CXf-35 to the passenger rear seat with a Dometic PLB40 battery pack. Weare impressed with the set up. Having g a fridge is a game charger. No more ice!.

1.The Dometic PLB40 BATTERY PACK has been awesome. It easily runs the fridge for 2 days without charge. Only weighs 11lbs. We haven't even used the solar pa El for it yet. Just plug it in to the 12 volt while we are driving. We feel this fits our needs well and is much lighter and a bit cost effective than a dual battery set up. Also, like the versatility of being able to put the fridge and generator in any car.

2. Got a little crazy with paint on the grill and headlight bezels. Maybe this will make it easier to distinguish between our rig and Joe's🤪.

3. Got a new back seat filler (Kirby). Has our 12 year old Goldie moved on to the land of infinite rawhide bones, Scooby sneaks and swimming pools.

Next up: X20 winch, MLED projector headlight retrofit, ditch lights, and VoSwitch are waiting in the garage for the next mod day. MaxGear rear bumper I ordered a year ago should arrive in the next couple weeks.

The pix.
