    Hi everyone!
    I recently purchased my second 2001 VX; the first back in 2002. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed driving it. Reading through the forum I am amazed by the number of problems; and solutions you've found. I just had mine Ziebart rustproofed and am looking forward to many more years....

    Yeah, I had mine rhino-lined on the underside before it saw its first Utah winter. Hopefully the 2nd one is the last....I should be moving to GA.

    Had Ziebart done on my 3000GT the day I got it too.

    Traded in one of my Jeeps for a 1999 VX and looking forward to getting the mods started! Currently located in New Mexico but reside in Idaho. Lots of terrain to try out the VX and see how it compares to my ZJ. Little less power than I'm used to but seems like a very capable rig.

    I was driving my son to school and saw a White VX. I didn't know what it was so I did some googling to find out. The next day I found a '99 astral silver one for sale about 4 miles from home. Two weeks later she was mine. Come to find out it was previously owned by "Buffy" (who is a member) who did a complete rebuild on it back in 2010 and documented the whole thing.

    Kinda neat I have that kind of history on my new ride. The next owner changed it over to a 5 speed with 4:77 gearing. I haven't done any real climbing with it but I'm driving it from Florida to Oregon in two days. There I'll get the chance to put her to the test. I'll be sure to take some pics and video. Cross your fingers she gets me to Oregon safe and sound

    Mine got me from Utah to Georgia just fine. It's really just a matter of how well kept a VX is. Mine didn't even appear to burn any oil at all in 2000+ miles.

    JonneB you really need to determine if your VX burns/consumes oil, and if so, what , if any circumstances, it does it, and any pattern it may have. Several very well maintained VXs have had sudden oil disappearance and failed, unexpected and unknown why. Just check it frequently and carry a gallon of oil with you to be prepared.

    Hi All. I just got my first Vehicross a few months ago. It's a 2001 Kaiser Silver and its pretty much entirely stock. I look forward to contributing, as this site has been immensely helpful.

    Well I made it to Oregon. Burned some oil, had to change out two tires but other than that it was a great trip. I was quite suprised at how comfortable the trip was. I took 7 days to go 3500 miles and had some nice visits with friends and family. Still haven't done any serious rock climbing, but soon.

    600 miles a day is booking. I found it to be nearly at the limit of my personal capabilities, so 7 seems doable. I can't imagine going back to the west coast though. Gonna have to take it to Savannah, just to complete the cross-country tour. Bought it in SD, so Savannah will finally bring it to both coasts.
