The Slowest Build Thread Ever

I've been a lurker since january when i traded in my Dodge Ram for my 2013 X. The previous owner had put a 2" shackle and front shock lift on it along with 285's. Since owning it I upgraded the stereo. I'm currently waiting on 1.5" spacers and bilstien 5100's. I am a mechanical engineer by day so I am lucky enough to play around with design ideas for my custom rear bumper.





INTERIOR
[x]-JVC speaker upgrade
[x]-Panasonic head unit
[ ]- custom molle panels
[ ]- custom deep spare tire compartment

SUSPENSION
[x] bilstein 2" lift[
[ ] 1-2" body lift
[ ] eventually titan swap

DRIVETRAIN/WHEELS
stock for now
[ ] upgrade gears
[ ] air lockers
[x] 1.5" wheel spacers
[x] steel wheels
[x] 265/70R16 duratrac

BODY ARMOR
[x] hardcore offroad front (installed!!!)
[x] hardcore offroad rear (installed!!)
[x] hardcore offroad rock sliders (installed!!)
[ ] skid plates
[ ] custom rear tire swing

EXTERIOR
[ ] modify/install custom light bar
[x] fog lights
[x] add reverse lights
[x] tail light guards

more mods to come.....stay tuned

Imgur seems to be easiest for me. Very little fuss involved.

Any other cool parts you are going to add to your bumper? If I had the skill/equipment, I would be adding so much random stuff. Drop-down table, custom bike rack, lock box for spare key, Maxtrax holder, hammock mounting point, flag mount, etc.

My plan/purpose for the dual swing out arms is to have two telescoping tubes that hook onto the arms when they are at 90 degrees to the bumper. then i'll have a board attach for a campsite table or extra foot room when i'm camping in it.

Shocks came in last night. Unfortunately it doesn't look like my spacers will be here before the east coast xterra challenge but i'd rather have fresh shocks over spacers for this.

Good on ya for going after your own bumper design. If I may, on the gas can side, you will likely have to extend the hinge farther out in order to have the hatch clear the can carrier.

Good luck with your build, keep us updated.

Everything happens for a reason .... Sometimes the reason is that you're stupid and make bad decisions.

You guys all did great. There were a few trails that I really wanted to run you guys through, but the rain messed that up.

Shoot me a message if you guys get another small group together and don't mind slumming it on some green trails.
