The valuable lesson I've learned at this point is that I will make sure to get an agreement in writing if I ever loan my car again
I would’ve taken a different lesson out of this. My wife and I bicker about this from time to time. I like all of my vehicles(that I care about) to have full coverage for this reason. Every time she reviews our policy, she’ll change whatever I’m driving to liability only. Then I see it eventually and restore full coverage. She wants to save that $9 a month or whatever it costs. I want to get that $1200 check if the car flips over. Both sides make sense I guess

we still love you and we still love your xterra but my best advice in this situation would be not to sacrifice a friendship over a crappy car. You obviously have a good friendship to help these people out this way. You’re smart enough to know the risk. Relationships are hard to build these days and I wouldn’t necessarily throw this one out the window because of something nobody wanted to happen

Quick question: Are the outside mirrors heated or not?

From what I can tell, they aren't. If that's the case, are there any recommendations on heated mirrors? (I can do the wiring no problem.)

Just curious... Who are you asking?

I've already sent a PM, for sure!



Mine was getting better until this happened, but now I have more options since spending some money is imminent. Right now I'm licking my wounds. I'll come out of this stronger and better, or so I'm told.

;)



That's a question I was gonna ask, too.
I don't think this guy is around anymore, but I've been through his thread a couple of times. He did a 4wd swap though and you have everything! Linking the thread below.

I thought I should bring y'all up to speed on a situation with my Xterra.

I spoke with my buddy 1-on-1 and he told me straight up that the damage is his to make good on. I accepted his statement as being the right thing to do, and because he's my long-time friend, I'm gonna go half-and-half with him on the cost of the parts.

That day, we parted still best of friends. For me, that was a Win.

That also means I've decided to fix the rig, at least for now.

Man that is rough, I agree keeping friends helps but one should always be responsible for your actions. I am glad everyone is good and the truck is getting put back together.
