when we did the Ensenada to La Paz the only places it was a 55gal drum was a ranch we had lunch at (Rancho Escondido) and also in San Juanico everything else was a pemex or chase truck , usually top of in the morning from the chase truck
Then meet him some where we got close to a road or he could get in to meet us otherwise alot of the towns had a pemex station
The poor Pemex attendants had a field day when 20 SXSs would pull into the station with only 2 or 4 pumps. LOL! I kinda get disappointed when I pull into the station here and there is no one to fill up my truck and convert pesos to dollars.

you want to talk about relaxing ,try Gonzaga Bay at Alfonsina’s sitting on the back patio drinking a beer you can almost feel every stress and ? Just lifting off your shoulders and just plain peacful place to hang out+ pretty damm good fish and shrimp tacos
It used to be ten times better when you had to drive 100 miles of dirt road to get there. Now that the black doom extends all the way past Gonzaga the place is infested with weekenders from Mexicali.

We were there on a Monday in the afternoon and there were probably less the 6/7 other people there , we try to head to mexico on a Saturday, spend the night in Ensenada ,get breakfast in the morning ,then go park the trucks and trailers at a secure site then start our trip so we can miss the majority of weekend warriors on the trails/roads The farther south we get the less crowded it is and gets really nice

Air filter did its job. Dirty X3 and air filter makes for a long day of cleaning.

Man thats dirty, we did 1132 miles down there and my buddys( before I got mine) filter stayed pretty much clean, my popo with pre filters had to be cleaned everyday and changed out after 3 days , he ran same filter the hole trip and after 3 days could hardly get any dirt after tapping it out , 600 miles on my x3 and filter still looks new ,you must've been doing donuts in the silt beds down there

S&B set up will be on there before my next Baja trip. The X3 ran good the whole trip. Some sections were really dusty and the silt bed was gnarly.

Nope. The stock filters kick ass. Donaldson filters are the best.

The best thing the manufacturers did were going to the Donaldson set up. Polaris uses it too. Had it on my XP1000.

Do you use an Outerware? If not, why?

No pre-filter other than the can am one. Don’t see a need for the pre-filter on the actual filter.

I ran an outerwear on my popo and it let all the fine dirt and dust thru but you couldn't tell the filter was dirty with it covered with the outerwear, they work good in sand because its way more corse than the dust or silt

I used an outwear initially on my XP1000 . When I switched to the blue high performance XP filter I stopped using the outwear. I found that the dust or sand that got through the outwear and did not get stuck in the filter was just trapped in there. It could not just fall off the filter, which is what would occur once I removed the outerwear.

I don't see how the R2C filters are that much better than the Donaldson filters. I think Desertcraft has a R2C style filter for the X3.

A trip the "kiddo" won't ever forget. Good job Dad, thanks for sharing.
I've got to do a Baja trip someday. Done Cabo on Harley's a couple trios, but that's nothing to the off road experience.
