Hello from Arizona

Post by Oilbrnr » Fri Nov 30, 2018 8:23 pm

Lurked here for a while now, decided it is time to dip my toes into the muddy water.

Bought my '16 new off the lot in December of '16. Traded my '05 Dmax as it was literally falling apart at 120k. IFS and 2,500+ miles of AZ non-paved roads per year is bad mojo. My other DD is a nicely equip'd and factory locked Lexus LX450.

I've done some upgrades and today I kinda got the ball rolling with Thuren. Took these pics at lunch today so they could get an idea where 9,125 pounds are. https://flic.kr/s/aHskJUwAyx

43k on the clock so far, and the only issue has been a evap code that was thrown under warranty.

Me, well I'm 52, third gen native of AZ, do most all my own wrenching, live in Scottsdale and Flagstaff (hometown). For the past 12 years I've done IT work for Discount Tire. Have two kids that I know of, wife and three labs that manage to turn 40 pounds of dog food into 50 pounds of shit. :lol:

That would be the ever elusive Expedition One, rarely seen in the wild.

I know, right!? I did buy one, still lost.

I read your unpleasant journey over on ExpoPort-o-let. I'll be posting up some of my findings here pretty soon, and some pics, along with what if anything they're going to do about it.
