Some may remember me from a few years ago.

Well a bad divorced followed by a bankruptcy led to me selling my Foz. :(


Couple years later I bought and built Ivan (Ivan the Xterrable)

Day I got him.

How he sits today.

Always missed my Sube and got a chance to pick up another one.

Picked it up Thursday afternoon.
Friday morning got tag and title.
Took it to get tires,on the alignment rack saw the ball joints were shot so had those replaced as well.
Cleaned it up and drove it around.
EVERYTHING works,all the windows,mirrors,cruise control,everything.
It's in great shape and runs and drives perfect.

Here's the kicker,it has 327,000 miles on it

I have to give credit on the Xterra, you took a pretty ugly design and made it look like a formidable 4wd. Very nice work.
1989 Brumby - Shiny new red paint, stroked EJ20 phase 2 SOHC with Darton sleeves bored to EJ22, Wiseco high-compression pistons, Delta 2000 grind cams , EJ/XT6 5 stud with WRX 4/2 pots, 5-speed, 86 GTS seats and so much more.
Contact me for reproduction XT6 hubs...and EA82 rear discs.

No question,the Xterra's a beast off road.
Full armor,sliders,locked front and rear,on board air,custom steering set up,the list goes on.
Still missed my Foz and so glad I ran across this one.
