COMMENTS:
Bought my first 2012 Xterra Pro4x used after making the transition from my Audi A4. I had always liked xterras,a nd with 3 dogs, now was the time. However, after the tiptronic A4, I HAD to go back to MT. Automatics were killing me. Having learned to drive a MT, one never eralizes how much control is yielded in an automatic. So, i found a MT pro 4x in black. LOVED IT. Not 1.5 months in, I got into a terrible accident that totaled the X.

Luckily, My insurance company had a "Keeper" policy, that since it was within the required model years and was totalled, they agreed to buy me another. I insisted on a Manual Pro-4X, and they found me a used 2012, with 12,xxx miles. DEAL!

Here she is, day one in my possession, bone stock.

I immediately knew Id want to upgrade, but not with a massive lift and BL and huge mud tires, as this was my daily driver, but being in North Georgia, and owning land in the mountains, I KNEW I was going to take her off the beaten path onto the expedition trails and Forest Service roads. So I knew some upgrades were in order. Slow but sure beat away at them.

Some pics:






Im sure Ill add a lot more pics and upgrades, so Ill update as I go.

I'd LOVE to hook up with some local Atlantians who hit the N Georgia area on Forest service trails/etc and spend some time camping.

I didnt have an issue with the stock suspension, so it wasnt soured. But the new stuff rides smooth as silk for sure. And the travel is welcome.
