Comments: After a few set backs with the m226 swap everything should be good to go now, just waiting on it to get all put back together. Big Thanks to Iron Rock offroad for doing the M226 swap and lockers and gears, was the first Xterra they worked on.

Awesome! I've been eyeing 285/17r17's for a few years now :)
Those Toyos I have are pretty awesome, its a pretty big difference from the 265's that were on there before. I had to Trim about an inch off the fenders to get them to not rub, Although I am still slightly rubbing on the driver side but its just the fender liner, I think a little more melting should take care of it.

Here are the updated pics. Enjoy :) by the way I am horrible at taking pics













Tom Woods DS, magnaflow muffler


Frontier switch Panel


Mini 0806 Dash Cam


Raingler Gate Pocket


Volant and Air compressor


Hella Supertones behind the Grill


And The M226:rockin:


I still need to go over the fender trimming with touch up paint but it actually turned out pretty good, it didn't chip the paint like I thought it would, there is one spot that the dremmel slipped and it gouged the paint a little, I had painters tape on and it helped a lot. I also need to melt the liners back a little more.

Looks good. How do you like the tires? Have you used them in any mud yet?

I like your ARB OBA install and plan to get one for the same purpose. It looks like its mounted to your Volant tube?

the Compressor itself is bolted to the side of the Air Box and is a perfect fit, the pump up kit is also a good fit in its location, I was originally going to have it aim straight up but it was super close to hitting the hood, so I just aimed it to the side.

so yesterday I ran 1/4" nylon split wire loom over the entire length of the rear air line to give it a little extra protection. I didn't bother doing the front locker air line because I plan on upgrading that entire air line.
