That car was a 6 speed std from memory. The silver rails means it is a JLX. The JX comes with the black rails. Things that make em different are the fog lights, smartpass key fob, heated seats, sub, auto climate control and the paddle shifters on the steering wheel.
I'll be in on Sat all day. If you come in, find me. My name is Allen.
I didn't get a chance to talk to the owner of that car. So I'm not sure what flaps they were. I figured they were homemade at first glance. It was that heavy duty recycled rubber.
In my garage, I have all the bits and pieces for my turbo build. Initially I was going to sell the kit. But, I guess I'll go ahead and see how she takes boost. I have already mounted the FMIC, b/c I was sick of that big empty hole in the bumper. I'll begin working on the install over the next two months.
For me, one of the most fun things about owning an off-road-capable vehicle is going places most people won't ever get to see. Whether it's four wheeling in Moab, Utah or simply exploring some back country dirty roads locally, there's a feeling of freedom, excitement, and wanderlust when I get to actually use my four-wheel or all-wheel drive system.
There are some really amazing places off the beaten path; places that a lot of vehicles won't be able to go—or at least places most people aren't willing to take their vehicle. You don't necessarily need a hardcore 4x4 to venture off the pavement. Some might argue you don't even need four-wheel drive in many instances. However, it's a nice feature to have if and when things get a bit tricky.
Apparently, Eric Davis feels the same way. He's made a few off-road videos of his outfitted Suzuki SX4 exploring destinations off the beaten path. Case in point is this video he filmed using his GoPro. The areas include a couple of ghost towns around Greenough, Montana. This kind of adventure isn't all about the four-wheeling; it's also about the exploration, the history, and getting out.
Eric's SX4 has a lift on it as well as Rocky Road Outfitters rock sliders, slightly bigger-than-stock BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires, Primitive Racing skid plates, auxiliary lighting, and a host of other modifications. It's a pretty trick ride that helps the SX4 more capable when the pavement ends.
I love this kind of stuff, and am fortunate to have a Suzuki Sidekick and Subaru Forestser for a bit of back country exploration of my own. Eric's video, however, really captures the essence of getting out there and exploring, if only for a day.
