#388088 - 27/11/07 07:11 PM Hello NJAX!
Anonymous
Unregistered


Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I have been reading your forums here and on the NJAX site for a while now. I tried to sign up on that site but didnt work for some reason. I am a college student living here in Philly but am not from here. Philly = no mud but I do travel home every few weeks to do some wheeling. I am kinda new to my X but feel like i've had it forever. I went for a ride in my buddies Frontier in Feb and fell in love. 2 weeks later I sold my Saab, bought my 2000 X se and never thought of turning back. So far I have a Volant intake, AirAID Throttle Body Spacer, 31" BFG Mt's and ARB bumper. My girlfriend asked me what I want for Xmas and I told her a Gibson exhaust!

welcome to NJAX. a lot of people have been having trouble registering on the board lately for some reason. it was dead for a while, but has gotten a little more active lately so hopefully someone can fix it.

sounds like a cool X...just don't suck any water or mud into that intake.

where do you go to school? i graduated from rowan in '06...its about 15 minutes from philly

I go to PSU Abington. I've noticed that the intake loves the water and Mud. j/k When I installed the ARB bumper last week I cleaned the Intake filter. I couldnt believe how much mud gets in the enclosed box. I am thinking about a snorkle. How hard is the install??

I've been looking into doing a snork for a while now. The only reason I haven't is because there's just too many other things I need that are more important. I'm against CAI's as I don't think the good outweighs the bad with them but I know a lot of guys on here like them. Maybe you can join us @ our next mod day (even though it's cold) and you can get some ideas of money better spent. [Wave]

Welcome. Hope to see you on the trails -- speaking of which, UNYX (Upstate New York Xterra) is doing a trail run this Saturday (December 1) at Rausch Creek. Come on out if you can make it - meeting around 9:00 for registration and airing down, departing on trails around 10:00

I cant make it tommorow because of work. I work at Best Buy besides being in school. If you give me some time notice i can put in for the day off. Let me know when your next MOD day is. I just ordered my Shackles from AC Weds nite and my girlfriend ordered my gibson exhaust for my XMAS present! I also read a forum and it was talking about sea foam. So last night I went to Advanced, picked some up(along with oil and a filter so i can change my oil today) and that stuff is AWSOME!! I took my X for a ride this morning and it seems to run like it is brand new. I had a small ping noise comming from the engine and it is gone besides the truck just running better in general. Sorry for the long message just thought you people should know! I have 103K miles what else should I do for maintence?

time to start saving for the timing belt. most people replace them around 105k i think. it's not a cheap replacement, but it's a lot cheaper than what you'll have to fix if it breaks

I wouldn't do it myself. I think it's around 700 or so to get done because your also doing the waterpump, pulleys, etc. If you ordered from AC today you should have your shackles by next xmas.. smile

I just paid $600 to get it changed at 105K miles.

Sure you can do it yourself if you have the time, the tools, and the mechanical know-how. I only have two out three though. smile

Now all we need is a weekend above 40 deg so we can do them..and stuff on TJ's truck and my truck and Keith's truck. I'm not big on working in the cold so I've been avoiding doing anything to my truck.

LOL

I learned NOT to skip the pre-flight check I normally did to make sure I was ready to roll.

ouch

Oh, BTW - I have your engine stand still...any arrangements to get it back to you, or would you rather it took up space at my place instead of yours?
