Intro: Hi everyone. This is the belated build thread for my Xterra. This is my second Xterra. My first X was an 03 base xterra that was gifted to me by my Uncle who had no need for it anymore. I got it when I was 15. After driving that truck to high school and back for 3 years I ended up trading it in for my now current daily the 2014 Pro4x. Ever since I drove the 03 around as a youngster i fell in love with the style and characteristics of our trucks.

I loved to wheel the 03 as much as i could (even though it was 2wd) I learned a lot with that truck and tackled some pretty big projects at a young age.
Now that I have a rear locker and 4wd I feel unstoppable haha. So without further ado i present to you my build.

Early September 2019: I bought the truck for approx. 18k with 60k miles on the clock from a Honda dealership in central Florida. I live in Jacksonville so it was a little drive. I searched for many months trying to find the perfect truck and this one popped up so i jumped on it. I didn't care what color it was as long as it was clean.

Welcome! You’ve done many good things and sounds like many more planned.

Was it ever in an accident? I notice it’s missing part of the side trim on the passenger side and the passenger headlamp appears to be smoked while driver side is aluminized
