    I know its been a while since I have posted an update, and well that partly because I haven’t done anything with the VX. My son broke his ankle (no worries he’s fine now) and that cost me just over $10k (His part of the bill after insurance was $25k) and required two surgeries. My wife just had to have a house with a swimming pool, and $5k later all of those issues (i hope) are sorted. Finally, my bathtub shifted in the floor. Turns out I had leak in the drain pipe and it rotted a joist, the sub floor, and the beams on the bottom of the surrounding walls. I could have let the insurance take care of it, but it would have nearly doubled my premiums. $20k later I have a new bathroom (and a structurally sound house), but damn this has been an expensive year.

    So the project is on hold for a bit as I pay down the debt I have needed to get into to keep everything else going. I am actually glad I had the VX. Before this I had a 2013 Toyota Tacoma TRD OffRoad (Amazing truck btw). However, if I still had those vehicle payments I may have been sunk. In August two smaller loans will be paid off and I can start to really knock down these other bills and hopefully put my emergency fund (which is $0 at the moment) back in the bank.

    You mean the one the bolts just about to the middle of the floor and comes up in the middle of the back seat?

    Up until now the VX has been running great. Better than expected actually. Today the passenger window motor died. Again. This will be my 4th motor since I purchased the VX. Dang it.

    It has been a long time since I updated this page. It is amazing how much time goes by when life gets in the way. It will be a while longer yet before more modification are done to my baby. The Army has decided that I need to go over seas for a year so the project will be put on hold for a while. I will try to keep up with the site in the mean time.
