So, somewhere between the Lukeville border crossing and Ajo, I heard a "pop" from under the X. Between Ajo and Gila Bend I began to notice the brakes were getting squishy (it's all highway so there was not much need to use the brakes..) It was when we had to slow down through Gila Bend and make some turns I began to hear squealing and feel the "clunk" in the turning left and right. BY the time we were back in PHX, the caliper (front passenger) had almost seized the rotor, and the pads were wearing in w/ a horrible grinding noise. I should've recognized the "pop", it was the brace (metal ring) around the hub holding on the CV (half shaft). Since the axle wasn't attached to the hub any longer, the wheel speed sensor wasn't picking up and was telling the brakes to activate. Hub breaks, cv retreats, brakes seize.
In a pinch, took it to Just Brakes. They turned the rotor(s), used my mostly new pads, and replaced OME w/ NAPA eclipse dual piston calipers. Flushed, filled, and bled all four corners for a decent price. Found a busted sway bar end link too and replaced that on the cheap also.. Just Brakes on 43rd ave and Bell is an honest shop if you need one. I like to work on my X but sometimes, I'm ok w/ having someone do the work.

Glad you got back on the road, Dan.  I'm a little confused, though.  Did you say that you had Old Man Emu (OME) calipers, and now you went with Napa calipers?  I didn't even know that Old Man Emu made brake parts (I know them more for suspension products).

The good old Xterra has the engine light on for a few days, wife said it's running sluggish. I checked the codes. P0420 p0328 and p0327

It pulled this codes a few months back and I cleared them with no issues.

Never heard of that - ever.

I work for an Aerospace Company that makes OEM parts.

Previously, I worked for an Auto Parts wholesaler/retailer that sold OEM parts.

OEM is a very common term across many industries:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Original_equipment_manufacturer

The only thing Google finds for "OME" is Old Man Emu...  :D

Sat I Pulled the headliner out and discovered that the roof skin is not original and the cross bracing is beat up a little (Maybe someone jumped on the roof?).

I'll have to get some material to re-cover the headliner so it's not sagging on my head anymore, fyi the foam stuff came off easily with a shop vac and some rubbing, however it filled it full of static which attracted all the dirt/grass off the driveway. lol Rubbed it down with a downy sheet and that helped a little. Seems like I should pay someone to re-cover it for best results and will be looking around for a shop to do it.

After which, then I can get back to what I intended, installing my light bar and other electronics I've held off on, seal up the mounting points on the rack, add some insulation to the roof using dynamat or similar and re-glue the cross braces to the roof skin.

Nice start to a recovery kit, just a bit of advice.  I prefer to avoid the "recovery straps" with the clips at the end, they are typically referred to more correctly as tow straps and the clips normally aren't rated high enough to be used to "yank" out another vehicle.  The preference is to use a designed snatch strap, typically rated well above 15,000 lbs.  I do also carry a chain that is only rated to 6600lbs with hooks, but I only use that for righting overturned vehicles with a winch.  Also, get a shovel :)

20,000 recovery strap added - thanks :)

I've done absolutely nothing in the past 45 days and it requires some maintenance or at the very least some inspection.

The wife had bought a 2-inch gel foam mattress topper, and was not happy with it. I measured and cut a large piece to fit on my seat under the seat cover. Now I'm gellin'.

Added a front lokka a couple weeks ago and finally got a chance to test it at Sedona.  Worked awesome, way better traction in off camber climbing situations.

Unfortunately I did, I even took two days off work. Wednesday to work on the X, then Friday off to camp a day early. I got caught up with helping to make breakfast for all the kids. Time flies when your having fun!
