Intro Comments: This is going to be my build page. This is my first Xterra, but I previously owned a 2006 Frontier KC 4x4, so some of the stuff transfers over. The day I bought it (3/27/2020) When I bought her, she was in GREAT shape. She was already bypassed for the SMOD issue. Im currently building a titan swap parts list, still needing the main things like the knuckles, hubs, big brake booster and master (99.9% sure going with Fat bobs), calipers, rotors, and wheel adapters and of course TIRES. I already have the 2005 titan/armada off road wheels, T-SWAP coilovers, extended rear shocks, tierods, shock skids, diff cover, m205 with axles, titan OEM LCA with moog ball joints, Cam bolts, dirt king UCA.

The tape was covering a CEL, which had a few codes, I ran them and nothing major was on there, didn’t realize the VDC and SLIP light was on until I left the car lot I got it from. Then came the weekend...

This was the turning point where I decided I needed a lift

Then on 4/1/2020 I did the axle vent mod.

So far this is all I have done, other than cosmetics (floor mats). I’ll update as I go along!

here’s the titan wheels I picked up on 5/17/2021 for 50$. They were painted black, I’m going to be removing the paint and seeing if the OEM color is good or not, if it isn’t then I’ll be painting the wheels a different color.
