After we built the house in 05 we loaded 22 40# bags of stone into the X. It rode just fine and I could just back up to the places that needed some. 4x4 Wheelbarrow!
That reminds me of the time we drove our X behind our new house after we had a trench dug up for some conduit to be buried. We used the X as a tractor after dark back and forth several times to compact the replaced dirt. Our neighbors thought we were weird. Lol.

Towtruck.

I pulled my father-in-laws 10,000 lb early 90's lifted GMC Surburban 4X4 about 10 miles with a tow strap after he spun a main and some rod bearings. You should have seen the look on his face the whole way home, pissed cause he thought he needed to get a big a** 4X4 to have pulling power. LOL, silly Chevy fan! Never tried but I'm pretty sure I could out-wheel him.

:rofl-big:

I've got a unique one for you.

No one's going to believe me because I never thought to take pics, but you can't make this stuff up...

As a well pump!

Let me explain a bit on this one.

Okay, technically it wasn't an Xterra, but a Nissan Hardbody pickup - same KA24 engine though!

I was visiting a small ranch my friend's family owns about 80 miles north of Tucson in the middle of freakin nowhere. The property has no electricity or any kind of modern utilities. There is good supply of groundwater though.

So my friend's uncle knows he needs to be able to pump a lot of water out to keep the plants hydrated in Arizona. He gets a good water pump, but the solar powered electric motor on it couldn't pump water out fast enough for it to actually reach all the plants before evaporating/soaking back into the ground.

So next step was to dig a trench by the well and drag this old (cheap) Hardbody with no wheels in place and half way bury it. The prop shaft is connected to the pump - start her up - rev it up - and SWOOSH! WATER FOR THE FARM!

The force of which water is blown out of the ground is amazing.
:fantastic:

i use mine to break arm and leg thick sticks for my fireplace. take two solid logs, place the stick on top and drive over it, breaks in half. beats using an ax or chainsaw. quicker and more fun

Better pulling angle if using the shackles. Bet you would have been able to pull even harder!

Anniversary Card!



I just moved to Iowa from North Carolina, and my girlfriend came to visit me for our anniversary (flew in yesterday afternoon)...her first time flying to Iowa...So naturally I had to embarass her while picking her up from the air port!

Too bad I didn't have a PA horn hooked up to my CB...then it could have been one of those musical cards too!
