Don't move here, then. This pic was taken the last time it snowed here (January 23, 2014). There was NOT enough snow for it to stick to the ground.

This is the last time mine saw any snow, just over 2 years ago now. Still independent front suspension then, so I'm excited to see what she's capable of now, because I had to put the thing doors deep to get it stuck before.



Well almost doors deep, (3 years ago, completely different truck now)

Snow in the deep south.

Still IFS. That's been several years ago. 2008 to be exact.

Installed a pushbutton switch and 2 LEDs on my dash for the ECU diagnostics (thanks to this site). I hate having to look under the seat everytime.

You're welcome

Wheeled mine today, and I wasn't the one to break down for once
Also scored a set of Xterra bucket seats for $20, supposed to go pick them up next nice day, been raining here for a week straight so I haven't been able to do much now that I'm reduced to working outside

I feel you...where I live it rains pretty much nonstop October through April and I don't have a covered area for working on vehicles. Sadly we don't get much snow here.

But seriously dude, it's MUCH appreciated. I wired it up this afternoon and now I'm able to cycle through all the diagnostic modes from the comfort of my old bench seat. You'd think they could at least rotate the ECU 90 degrees or something.
