1. Very nice!

2. After the ABS splicing, do you have lights on the dash? Does the Speedo and 4wd shift motor work? Any codes setting?

3. With all that flex and lift, are you keeping the BL or removing it for a lower COG?

Definitely drives different. I do miss a lot of aspects of the IFS with Titan swap. With saying that, I would definitely tell you to ask yourself, why are you solid axle swapping. It is worth doing if you are tackling the larger obstacles with the massive amounts of articulation. But then again, the Xterra is highly capable with Titan swap.

I spliced and extended the wires about 8"s to compensate for the flex. No dash lights. Everything is fully functional without having to any other modifications to wiring or sensors. Everything works just as a stock Xterra. I do need to do the VDC bypass because of body roll when going a little fast around onramps and turns which kicks on the slip light. I have to push the VDC button before I start driving. No codes.

If I keep the body lift is with the intent to stuff 37's. Still on the fence. I'll take it off if I can finally decide that I'm staying with 35's. And overcome the thought of having to put in the work to take it off. I was just in Moab week before last with a couple jeep jk's with 4" lifts. I had awesome approach and departure angles at my current height, we would be coming off the same lines and they were just dragging off the ledges. So just weighing out the factors, if can still get 2-4 inches of lift out of my suspension. So maybe take the body lift off and add an inch height to the suspension.
