Last thing I Bought was Running boards and the 2 front side windows tinted, Next thing is 3M clear door guards, door handle cup guards and back of mirror protection, After this save up for a lift and bigger tires ( I have no clue which way to go and what brand to use) BTW I just got this 2018 4runner on Christmas Eve "Tonya" is very new!
Nice rig. Lots of possibilities.

I got one of the new Medium First Aid packs from Blue Ridge Overland Gear and one of their map pouches. The first aid kit fits where the factory one in my Xterra was but holds a lot more stuff. Plus, it will hang from the straps on the gate and you can just unzip it rather than having to remove the whole thing like the factory one. It has 4 pouches Velcroed inside it so you can divide up the stuff by need and just grab the pouch you think you need for what's going on.

I also nabbed a pair of coilovers for the front of the Xterra.

Next thing on the list is upper control arms and a Shrockworks front bumper for it.

I'm hoping to have all my suspension components gathered to lift it come spring when it's due for new tires.

Finally going to fix the bird nest of wires on my main battery by getting most of the accessories off of it, and wired into a 12 position Blue Sea fuse box.
Also the Blue Sea circuit breaker, 4 gauge battery wires, all mounted to the Powertrays for the FJ Cruiser.
Placed my order yesterday for it.

I bought the 6-way Blue Sea fuse box and have discovered that it' not big enough. should have opted for the 12-way. grrrrrrrr

That is why I went with the 12.
I have around 6 now to plug to it, and it will be nice to have the extra room to grow.
I thought 6 would be enough until i mounted a light bar, 2 separate sets of front spotlights, rear work lights and some USB sockets. I'll need somewhere to fit the CB radio and other future investments

Got an Auto-Vox M1 back up camera for the van so I can back up more easily to the trailer those last couple inches, and for just general rear view. I think I'll hook it up to be always powered, but with a switch, instead of only on when I'm in reverse. Pretty decent and inexpensive ($50) little waterproof camera, judging from the reviews, with night-vision and what looks like a decent monitor, too. I'll post a review after using it for awhile.

Also just received my 2017 copy of The MILEPOST - "Since 1949 the bible of North Country travel!" and pre-ordered 2018. Not sure why, but at $24 and change, it's $7 less on Amazon than a lot of places. It's really an amazing resource to go through, whether seriously planning to explore Alaska and the rugged provinces of western Canada or just armchair adventuring. Updated yearly, in-depth profiles, detailed fold-out maps, the works. I know North Country travelers who swear The MILEPOST is their most invaluable guide to travel.

Bought clear headlightcovers and a black dashmat for my car, I am also thinking about getting a GoPro 4 or 5 to use as a dashcam later this year (I don't need or want the newest GoPro)

After Christmas, I bought something called a Sunferno strap on Amazon. I got sucked in by its claims of being a combination tow/recovery/snatch strap all in one. I was on vacation so I might have had a few beers. After receiving it I realized it's at best a tow strap with a tiny bit more flex. I've returned it and plan to buy the ARB recovery strap to replace it.

Order new ignition coils. I am having a cylinder 6 miss fire so I figured I'd just replace all of them while I'm in there since it looks like it's going to be a pain to replace them.
