    Ran out of flap discs. So tomorrow I'll make it all pretty, seal it, paint it, and maybe move to the drivers side.

    Not gonna lie, surprisingly well. I had absolutely 0 issues going from Phoenix to San Diego. It’s a little undergeared with 3.55’s and 34’s, but it definitely moves and stops really well.

    It's so cool that your dad bought this new.

    Your 4runner is sweet

    I'm digging the SUV life, no 4runner but the xterra has been awesome so far.

    Nice job with the fabwork, your welds look pretty good for the most part! Is that Handler 140 on CO2 or Argon?

    Man that's awesome, I love seeing people burning their own steel. How do you like that 190? I'm looking at the 210 MVP real hard for my home welder.

    I love it. I haven't welded 220V since I was in high school and it was nice and easy to set up and use. Hoping to pick up a TIG eventually too
