A little update since WENT. Had an absolute blast at WENT! The rig tested fabulous and met all expectations. Its weird though, I bashed my Sliders more this year than I did on my previous rig but hey, that's what they are there for! During WENT, I got some really good flexing shots and really stretched its legs! Just waiting on the pics to come in from the other folks that were in our group. There's definitely a setback at being so wide with the TS, but that's ok with me lol. Put a nice little ding in the front Rad Skid, but again, that's what it's there for! I finally got home and noticed the Rear Diff was dripping a little bit so I went ahead and painted the new Ballistic Fab High Fill Cover that Paul gave me and threw it on there with some Royal Purple. It definitely needed to be changed, it appeared to have a little Water in it and it was completely Black. Painted it in Rustoleum Gloss Cherry. I do plan on painting the Skull a different color, but I was in a hurry to change the Cover so I didn't worry too much about it. There were a lot of goodies at WENT in the raffle that I put in for... LED Cubes, Rock Lights, new Pro-4X Rims, Storage Boxes, Tow Straps and such. I finally won something big! I won a set of White Knuckle Sliders and a Tow Strap! So now that I have 3 Sets of Sliders, (Shrock from the last rig, XT Fab ones that are currently on the rig and the White Knuckles), I have to decide which ones I want more. None of the 3 are accommodating of the BL, but I kind of like having that extra step into the rig. Once I mock the White Knuckle Sliders up then I can decide on which ones I want or might sell all 3 of them and get the proper 2" BL Sliders. I mounted some 7" Round LED's on the Shrock that I had laying around also. I still need to figure out what I'm going to do about the KC's... 2 of them stopped working at WENT and the other 2 aren't bright at all. Paul converted them over to HID and they have this Purple-ish Tint to them which is hideous IMO. I can't decide if I want to keep the Xoskel and replace them with LEDS or take the Xoskel off and put my 40" Light Bar up there. I'd like to find some nice 6" Round LED's, but those are pretty hard to find apparently. But enough with the rambling lol. Here are some pics I took at WENT!

Old Diff Cover:


New Diff Cover:




Carrie bent an Idler Arm, went got a Big Pry Bar and bent it back. It wasn't too bent so that was good. She then cut a Tire. Wasn't a good day for her lol.


The next day, she blew her Front Axle and that was an interesting recovery... Had to Winch her forward while trying to drag her a$$ end around so she can go back down the trail.



Doing a little teeter tottering.




Casey who took the picture said the Tire was at his chest, that's how far it was lol.


Here's where I smacked the Rad Skid.


Group Photo.



Also went to the Nemo Tunnel with my fellow NORSE guys.


Saturday was a nice slow day. Went with the Beginner Intermediate group and of course, I see a big rock, I mount it lol.







Tested out the Gobi Ladder and DepHep rack to see if it could handle my big old ass lol. Was very surprised at how sturdy it was for me.


Breslin just had to make the group photo a little more awesome! haha...

Very nice man! What happened to your other X? Maybe I missed a thread on it...
It got totaled. Some a$$hat pulled out in front of me and I smoked him bending both frame horns.

sliders taking a bigger beating than the old truck.... maybe because the new rig is more flexy/softer?

Looks like it worked pretty well!

^Yea, that's what I'm thinking. They also stick out 14" from the frame and the outside tubing isn't bent upwards like Shrock and such so that very well maybe why it hit so much. I'm uploading my pictures from WENT so I'll have some good flexing shots up real soon. The rig handled fantastic on the trails!

Weld them up 2" higher the way that they should be with the body lift and you'll get hung up on them less. ;)
I plan on doing that lol. I'll probably sell all 3 sets and get 2" BL sliders instead of cutting them up.

Thanks! I definitely like the idea of #BoughtNotBuilt lol. Saved me a lot of headache and money. I think I suffered enough with my last rig

The sliders on this new (to you) Xterra stick out with almost no upward angle towards the vehicle. These sliders are also mounted for a non body lifted Xterra. They will contact obstacles much more often.
