I will be watching this thread to learn about UK politics... It's interesting to see how things are done over there. I do like the idea of forming a true coalition government who may actually represent more than one viewpoint.

I have no idea who I'd vote for next year. The GOP candidates are fucking morons and Clinton is a crooked bitch.

Backed 100%. I may just vote for Gary Johnson again to show my support for him, and not check a box for the democrat/republican establishment.

Sweet, we need a subsection named Dadguide.org

A Dad thread in the lounge wouldn't be a bad idea...

I had a jumpsuit full of shit to greet me this morning. Buckle up fellas.

LOL I've had dogs for a while so I've dealt with some shitty situations... But I imagine a little human will be a whole different experience.

Zombie dads 420 is getting larger. Congrats! Your first or?

Thank you!

She is our first, it was planned but we're still anxious and excited. It's turning out to be a crazy year.

My daughter turned two in January and she's the best ever. Enjoy it and if you guys have plans and hear advice from people just keep in mind they don't always work out but she'll fuckin love you regardless.
Man I gotta getting wife pregnant again.

Thanks, we're informally planning the parenting and taking advice but we also know that most of that goes out the window and we plan on doing what comes naturally. I think setting the structure of a new life will be difficult for a bit... New schedules, new routine, a new normal.

Here's a little video. My chain line is damn near perfect, and you can see the sprocket is already starting to show some wear.

So that looks like at least 2-3mm of play... I'd email G and show him the video to get his input. Part of me says to ride it a bit to break it in if you haven't already.

How loose is the chain on the sprocket (mm of play)? I'm interested to see this.

The only thing I have a problem with is standard getting the frame back and them saying it's straight/true or fine or whatever. With just that little explanation?
...

This bothers me most of all as well (especially due to fact Rick suggested to check frame alignment in person), and is also main reason for the topic - which was intended to clarify things in first place, not to complain about Standard (i don't like doing that really).

They didn't give me their allowed dimension error when i asked (nor other direct answers for my questions). Generic/common amount of allowed precision error still remains shady too.

Pics are just for illustration, you can see issue with bare eye, there's not much point in precision measuring, it's obvious frame isn't very useful. I was certainly considering building some validation device, but i have work and other stuff to do. Box was fine both of times, needless to say.

Thanks to everyone who bothered to post so far - as it looks that most of reasoned opinions (both here and from locals) suggest this is unacceptable, i've mailed frame back for second time few days ago and am waiting for some possibly interesting news now..


If the frame actually measures out of spec (not an eyeball/camera measurement)... I would hope that the interesting news is a refund.

Is it ever worth it converting a truck to 4x4 vs just getting a different vehicle?  I got an '02 Xterra RWD, moving to Denver and need/want 4x4. I've got only 9l on it and just did the timing belt/water pump/all other belts. I love the truck so is it worthwhile?

Usually, no. Unless you have access to dirt cheap parts, lots of skilled labor, time, and a good space to do the work.

Only sometimes. For your situation probably not. Unless you want to somehow throw a divorced t-case and a small solid axle up front then it would be kind of cool. Or try to go about converting it using stock parts which would most likely cost you more than if you sold the rwd and got into a 4x4..

A ghetto solid axle swap is pretty much the worst way to go about it though.

The only worthwhile way on an Xterra would be to find a donor 4x4 rig that's a similar year and swap everything over.

It's 80 out and I'm chilling in the back of my 4runner while I get new tires put on the wheels for my Golf. I don't mind this at all.

Dropping off the XR400 rear wheel today to get new spokes installed. I'm a decent wheel builder for bikes, but motos are a completely different job.

Then I just need to dial in the suspension, and I can go shred some trails.
