Make sure the timing belt has been changed! If not plan do to it ASAP.

Yeah
Thankfully my girlfriend works right next to our house, so whoever is doing the least driving that day will take the XTerra. It shouldn't be too bad until the BRZ gets in. My old roommate had a v6 manual and I liked it a lot for what it was.

Thank you! I see that it is a bitch of a job as well.

EDIT: The SE has a limited slip right?

It looks like in the pictures.
I'm buying it for snow duty and to keep the (adorable) little ****head from ruining my BRZ.
Oh yeah and woods/cabin duty. And hauling **** around. You know all those things that when you don't have a truck you wish did have a truck for.

Nice pictures, I don't think I could ever drive on those steep cliffs. Not sure how some people do those crazy jeep trails.

Some pics from a far off land.

EXCURSION on 49.5x21 IROK's (air lockers, dana's, york air, etc, damn nice build!)

same rig on the beach (what a nice way to spend a day, wheeling a glacier, wheeling on black volcanic beach, and driving 20 miles into the middle of no where for one helluva view)



Airing down a bit once we hit deeper powder


The previously mentioned view (behind me was the huge glacier/ice caves and tunnels)


Some random glacier/snow rigs


(nice six door excursion..)


(my fav six door exp, had ghost flames and 46's)


And then a pano shot from the glacier (defenders on 38's, fun rigs)

1990 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

Location: Redwood City, CA
VIN: 1J4GS5874LP503849
Chassis mileage: 118,540
Engine type: 5.9L (numbers-matching) with 118540 miles

How long have you had the car? Only 1 month. Purchased vehicle from a local auction for resale on eBay Motors.

Describe the body condition: Excellent condition with very few dings or blemishes. No rust issues.

Describe the mechanical condition: Runs and drives well but may need a carb rebuild or tuning as there is a slight hesitation when accelerating. Recently had oil change, tune up, front brake pads and 4 new tires.

Included documentation: Calif title. Owners manual and original purchase order paperwork.

What makes this car special? This is a truly original example of a great Jeep. Not an overpriced $30K+ reconditioned one, but a well loved and cared for original. The vehicle was recently photographed by Popular Mechanics magazine for an upcoming issue.

Each episode follows a celebrity pair as they take on some of the toughest terrain on the planet, at the harshest time of the year. From keeping the car running in temperatures of -50ᵒC on Russia's notorious Road of Bones to navigating through the depths of the Malaysian jungle in the middle of the monsoon season, accompany these high-profile petrol heads as they push themselves and their car, to the limit.

That's part of the "gran turismo" garage, where you got enough money to buy and build whatever you want.

Sticker said it was supercharged. I don't know why but it caught me by surprise. Guess it didn't occur to me to force induction a jeep.

There have been folks running turbos on the 4.0 for years.. about 4-5 psi REALLY wakes them up... set it to come on about 2500rpm... keeps the power around for mud and off the rocks.
