Sylvester the Silver X - College Budget Build (Slow)

Hey everyone,

I've been a lurker here for quite some time now and figured I may as well start posting more since I'm on here anyways.
I got my Xterra about a year and a half ago from the dealership. I had my eyes on a couple of FJ Cruisers, but I finally settled on this one! I couldn't be happier with my pick!
However, my Xterra is a 2WD so there won't be much offroading. Just practical camping and outdoors activities for it.
So here is my slow slow build of my 2010 X:

Username: sylvesterthex
Year: 2010
Make: Nissan
Model: Xterra
Trim: X - 2WD
Color: Silver Lightning

Modifications:

Exterior:
Yakima LoadWarrior
Curt Hitch
Bumper mouth light bar (custom made)
Blacked out grille and lower grille
Plasti-dipped rear emblems
3' Firestik antenna on fangars' roof rail mount
PA speaker under the hood
Stickers
Bedlined Stock X Rims

Interior:
CB radio
Maglite mounted on driver's side of console
Digital thermometer
Boat compass in cup holder - Perfect fit

Great lookin X man!

The grill blackout was prolly the best mod I have done so far. It completely changes the look of the X (For the better, of course). Honestly I think they shoulda come blacked out up front from the factory, but thats just me lol..

I agree, can't wait to bedline the rims. That'll complete the look I think.

Thanks man. Yeah it looks so much better than the stock silver color...It seems like it needs to be stock, because it looks like it belongs. Yours looks nice too, good job!

I'm liking your X! Didn't know the SE's came with those mirrors. Pretty cool looking.
unamused's looks awesome as well!

Got 23 mpg on the way up to NC from Bama. Not too shabby! Ordering a hitch today, and going to buy the stuff needed to stealth the wheels. I'm going with duplicolor truck bed liner. Off to Nissan later to pick up the wire harness plug in for the hitch, if they have one in stock...

Ah no way, I always wondered if you were on the forum. Awesome! We have a couple of guys from Ttown and Bham from the forum.
Do you go to alabama or just live in tuscaloosa?
