Thanks. I feel it’s an appropriate & respectable answer. But really, it’s just the plain truth. It kills the conversation immediately.

Like Jerry Seinfeld once said, “Truth ends all conversations.” Not that I/you want the conversation to end. It just lets the person know where you stand with the truck and then you can talk about it some more.

On the D21 front…I ran my truck hard for the last 2 days. Long gear pulls, high rpm revving, and stood on the gas pedal any chance I got. Still having a lot of fun in my truck. So definitely NOT “done” with it.

Here’s my shameless D21 plug for “The Mighty Nissan”:

Extra lights will be installed soon on the roof also ofc. Along with a cb ham. Cheers from Finland.

Personally I like Hy-Per Lube The Ultimate Smoke-Fix. It's loosened up many guide seals and stopped smoking in many (small, granted) engines. I also have dropped a quart in my D21, many years ago, as PM. No idea if it helped or hurt... but it's still running!
Heck, yeah. Hy-Per-Lube works. Been using it since the 80's. It rules and other additives drool. Puts a honey-like coating on parts that stays there for startup. Trust me, it works.

On a side note, I liked those pictures that guy posted from Imgur. My god, that is one of the best D21 mod trucks I have ever seen, right down to the reasonable 3" lift and the 12,000 pound winch. It is a work of art, and the brand new factory bed taking a year to arrive...what patience on a modded truck. We have a true Nissan fan here, guys and gals. No one goes to all that trouble unless they are.

I get to sneak in a bit about the Xterra now....went to a used tire shop today and they mounted me four (slightly) used (and MATCHING!) tires and the whole package with disposal, tax, mount/dismount, balancing, etc came to a measly 240 bucks. Mexican-owned shop but they are very nice. I also picked up a set of front struts and rear shocks (KYB's) for the X and they arrive Friday. Will mount them on Saturday. The woman wants an oil change on her Toyota Avalon as well...same weekend. I will be busy. Had to order the special tool for that one. Shops were charging her 200 bucks an oil change. With me it is free and I do the synthetic for her with a quart of never-fail Hyperlube. Changed oil in the X just last week...now she wants equal time with her Avalon.

No problem. After all this is done, around the 9th of November...we're taking off to Long Beach, WA and checking into a motel for a few days. Taking the X and doing the 20 mile beach drive and the seafood shops.

EDIT: No vacation in the X until I replace a broken leaf spring. Found one snapped in two in the center of the leaf pack. Wonderful....

Had a “spirited” run with a red mid ‘90’s Porsche 911 today while headed home on the freeway. We just happened to be going on the same 2 freeways and we topped out “a few miles above the posted 65 mph speed limit”. Wasn’t as fun as I thought it could be, as the driver only engaged a few times. Oh well. I left him and punched out towards home on a fast stretch of freeway.

Still feeling out the new brake system I installed and have driven on the rotors, pads and bearings for about 800 miles since installation and initial burn in. Bed-in mileage of 300-500 miles, per the manufacturer, has been completed. So just driving normal and braking normal with the occasional “stab” braking method. I have noticed my front rims are beginning to collect brake dust from the new semi-metallic pads. But still only good things to report, thus far.

Went out last night until 5am looking for the aurora borealis in Nevada. The night before had a good show 1 hour away.
The sky was glowing green with varying intensity for a couple hours. Saw lots of falling stars.

It was about 32F out and I took the sun roof off.
I took a blanket and draped it over the cab to keep the heat in the cab covering most of the sun roof hole but with my head popping out. I've often thought about getting a booster seat for doing stuff like that. Or even raising the seat, extending the steering wheel and pedals and driving like that. haha


Damn I love the functionality of this truck! The back of the truck is loaded with 500lbs of tools at the moment cause I am low on storage space.

I took my truck to get inspected. It passed with flying colors. The inspector said that it was miles better than the average car that they inspect.
