Been lurking on this site for a few weeks. Finely decided to speak up. Most if not all of my questions have been answered just by searching around the forum. I've been on a few motorcycle forums and i was the guy who came to your house for beer and to show you how to fix your bike. I hope i can do the same here :drink::thumbup: Not quite there yet.

I've recently picked up an "Avalanche white" 2008 Xterra S and i absolutely love this truck. she's got about 70k looks and drives like new. It came with a 2in lift, light rack and 32in tires. She's a looker ;)



Just did the first oil change last weekend and while i was down there i did some poking around and found that one of my coils was missing about 3in off the bottom, must have snapped right out. it was no where to be found. since then she's developed a squeak from that side and it is driving me up the wall!. so, first and second order of business is to replace the front suspension and swap the tranny lines. Other than that she runs like a top and i was gonna leave it at that.


Not a chance :D
I plan on replacing the front and rear bumpers with something from ShrockWorks. Adding a snorkel, winch, hi-jack and plastidipping the rest of the truck grey or army green. A lot is still undecided, my opinions always change with new information and some of this stuff is pretty pricy.

This is kinda what I'm going for but with a few of my own personal touches of course



Some personal info?

My name is Joe
I'm 32
I'm an engineer. I've worked on small air planes and helicopters, steam turbines. LOTS of AC units (commercial). My tool shed is vast ;)
I work for beer but my free time is limited (who's isn't)

and that's about it for now. looking forward to hitting some new trails with new friends and keeping my ride in perfect working order.


also spelling and grammar aren't my strong points, so please bear with me :eek:ccasion5:
