I guess its about time I put something together now that the mods are beginning to commence...

I picked this Xterra OffRoad back in November from an independent truck dealer that had it listed for a good deal. I ended up trading $12k for her, which isn't a bad deal considering it is a fully loaded OffRoad in good condition with 89k miles on it at the time.




Here she is shortly after I picked her up..

I had to pop her cherry by taking her on a local trail. I chose to run Jacoby Canyon in Big Bear for the maiden voyage.

After the maiden voyage, I decided to pull off the step rails and take her out for a quick overnighter in the Mojave Desert out by the Marble Mountains.

I then decided to add tires and sliders. Specifically Cooper ST MAXX tires in 285's and generic DOM tube sliders.

I even got around to installing an Xoskel low pro light bar and some Tuff LED light bars that give a combined light output (rating) of 6000 lumens. Its enough to light up the night.

And finally a lift. I used a Nisstec rear AAL kit with 2* shims and Bilstein 5100 shocks in the rear and Bilstein 5100 height adjustable shocks in the front.

Pretty parts

Equals a nice stance.. This is how it currently sits.. Comparison of how it looked when I got it, compared to today.
When I got it to today. Tires, lights, sliders and lift. In that order. by LongRangePro, on Flickr

Ive even used the X as a tow vehicle..

The boat and trailer weighs in somewhere around 6,000lbs and I didn't have to tow it too far. I definitely wouldn't take this on the freeway with the X, thats for sure.

Old Navy: Hopefully its up to snuff for you now. Sorry about that. I actually cross posted this over from ExpeditionPortal, so I didn't even think about formatting.

Spdu4ia: Here ya go. Rem700 in .308 at home in an Elesio RTS chassis with Bushnell Elite DMR glass..

Its looks pretty much this way now, with the exception of adding an FDE Magpul Miad grip to match, swapping the Bob-Ro bipod out for a Harris and adding the muzzle break (2" Shrewd brake)

Went and played a little bit at a local off road park. Mostly played around in the training/testing area where they stage some pretty rough stuff to get over. The Sluice and rutted hills were cake to get over. Without the lift, I likely would have dragged on the sliders and underbelly a bit more.

The shocks also feel great out on the trail. Much improved over the standard Bilsteins.

Heres a quick video I put together. My girlfriend was recording with her iPhone while holding onto my 75lb pitlab on the leash, so I apologize for the unstable video. I also did all the editing and stitching together on iMovie on my iPhone.
