I'm interested to se how long it lasts. I've been trying to find a product to use on my plastics but have heard so many stories about them only lasting a couple months. Unfortunately, when I bought my truck a year and a half ago, the stealership coated everything in Armor All so the plastics turned almost white.
Pick up a bottle and check it out! I use it on everything the interior looks amazing.I'm interested to se how long it lasts.

Yeah, I will defiantly plan on building the truck out into an overland rig. I am still planning out where I want to start. I will build the bumpers, rock sliders, and a new roof rack. I do want to go with a titan swap front end but I will probably stick with the R180 diff and put a Lokka in it, and run QX80 CV shafts. I picked up some used Radflo 2.0's that need rebuilt and new springs.It’s great to see you saving an X from the scrap heap or getting parted out. Best of luck on the rebuild. Do you plan on upgrading anything or just bringing it back to speck? I saw you will do a Titan swap eventually. Any other plans?
Love what you are doing. Something to consider, since you are actually planning on taking your rig off-road, those big grill/headlight bars (like the ARB bumper) are actually useful in protecting your lights and front corners of the quarter panels from scratches. I went with a low profile hoop to protect a future light bar and because I thought I looked great. First time I went trail running I was wishing I had the extra protection. Now I have some mostly permanent pinstripes. Haha! That’s the X life, right?Starting to pull together ideas for the front bumper build. I like a more minimalistic and low profile design. Some of these plate bumpers I see just look so damn big lol. I found this picture of a pretty slim bumper on a Frontier.

I know our Xterra’s don’t have the same flat cut on the bumper, but digging into how the ARB bumper is mounted. They cut down the stock bumper to give it a flat profile.

Thinking about chopping down the bumper and coming up with something similar to what is on that Frontier. Keeping it sucked In as close as I can with a winch tucked inside.
