    Hey everyone. I picked up a 2003 SE 4x4 about five weeks ago and have enjoyed it so far. I'm more of a destination driver than a wheeling driver, camping and hiking, but I've always wanted a 4x4 just for the added capability to get where I want to go...and back.

    I haven't done much except on working to get things up to date, but I have deleted the intake baffles and the step rails. I've also had the pleasure of getting the timing belt replaced when that broke on me. The water pump was done as well.

    Looking forward to picking the collective brains of the experts and making friends.

    You did. That's a nice looking X. How many miles? So far our 03 X has had oil leaks, a new clutch and of course the timing belt. Keep an eye on your radiator; ours started to leak at the top. Plastic seems to degrade ove time. Otherwise a pretty reliable truck.

    Welcome to XN!

    Thanks, much appreciated. It has 165k on it at the moment. Yeah, I do have some kind of small leak in the back and I'm not sure if it's the rear main or oil pan. It hasn't been bad enough for me to look into, just a couple drops here and there. The overall reliability is why I went with the 1st Gen, plus I just like them. Thanks for the tip on the radiator!

    Thanks. Most 1st gens in this area are silver so I wanted something different. Not a lot of green ones around. Nothing against the silvers, but my neighbor across the street has one and it's a clunker so I didn't want mine to match his.

    Yep. That's what I'm afraid of!
