Traded in my 05 Xterra for a 09 VW Tiguan Highline.

Miss my X a lot, but do not miss my fuel bill! I bought my X primarily for work when I was an archaeologist....was always driving up mountains, logging roads, etc all around the interior. Transitioned out of field and it became a city vehicle...thought it was time to be responsible and down size.

Loving to Tiguan...stoked to see how it handles the winter. I certainly don't mind all the bells and whistles that came with it...never had fully loaded vehicle before

That would look sweet with a 6" lift and set of 35s

Couple things done here and there, but it's more or less stock.

It's still a piece of shit, though.

The e-brake failed and it wasn't in gear, so it decided to go visit a gathering of trees down the hill from the house. Had to replace the front bumper/rebar, grill, headlights, hood, and some other misc stuff. At the same time, I replaced the rear calipers, rotors, pads, and e-brake cables. Oh, and the fuel pump.

Installed a pull bar and some PIAA lights after all that.

Because my first love - Willys Jeeps - are highly undailydrivable I am now driving a 97 T4R LTD. I picked the 4Runner because I couldn't find a clean low mileage swb 70 series or 80 series Land Cruiser. I really like the 4Runner so far. Room to sleep in the back, comfier than a snuggie, locked and loaded. Because t4 kept harassing me and since I've been sick this past week and not quite high enough on cough syrup to become illiterate, I finally made a build thread which I will update when I start doing something about the mountain of parts I have accumulating in my buddy's shop, but don't hold your breath, it's being modded at good old unemployment pace.

Just past Ford Mountain Correctional Institution. Probably one of my favorite camping spots. 35 minutes from my house... Probably the only redeeming factor of living in Chilliwack.

There's room for 3 vehicles to park quite easily on that side and have a few small tents (no room inbetween roots/stumps/trees for large 6+ person) and because of the narrowing of the road on either side, really no place for people to be right next to you.

Another Picture
Yet Another Picture
