    Just got to be driving my Xterra again!

    So much fun!!!
    After 4 months first time.
    It was in transit via sea.. plus had some delay with title...

    I started right up too and ran nicely ! ( battery was disconnected)

    That sounds like a teaser ... if your Xterra has been at sea and finally reunited with you, you must be somewhere other than North America.

    Tell us more!
    If someone blows up a school with a bomb they go after the bomber ... if someone shoots up a school they go after the gun.

    A privilege is just a right that has been taken away by government.

    Political correctness is cowardice wrapped in a lie.

    Sorry for the slow response.
    For various reasons I dont want to publicize were I am
    Its more than 1 reason.. each of them are small but altogether ...
    But many places here i dont have to worry about police pulling me over at any speed.

    I took the SUV up to 90mph and held it there for a maybe 30 minutes on Monday.. just to "run it clean" after its been sitting for all that time..

    but its an SUV not a crossover or modern station wagon so even though the power is there anything faster I feel is pushing it for safety... so I dindt go faster than 90 mph.

    Yeah, the Xterra is not really set-up for sustained triple digit speeds.
    And as I recall, you have some off-road oriented rubber on it to boot !

    Yes,
    not extreme offorad rubber but offroady enough its rated both AT and 3PMSF, the sped rating on it is I think 107 mph and the tires are near new..
    But the soft off road suspension and high center of gravity to not make for a good high speed vehicle.
