Hello all. I've been creeping on this forum for about a year lol. I've read most everything on it, at least in the general section. I bought a blue Auto S 2012 Xterra in February of last year. Loved it, quick and fun off road. I took it down to West Virginia to visit my family last year and it was sooo fun running through the mountains. In September of last year I managed to get a great deal on a 2013 Night Armor Pro-4x with the 6spd!! I found it at a dealer in Virginia after the Titan I came there to look at was not the right model with the right option's. I saw it and looked inside and couldn't believe it was stick!! They are pretty rare and hard to find. :rockin: My mods so far are a custom Magnaflow Exhaust with an 18 inch muffler model 12258, 2 in 1 out along with a 3 stainless Magnaflow 18 inch tip. Sounds like a mix between a 350Z on steroids in the mid and upper rpm range and pops and burbles in between shifts like a v8, I love it! Stock air box mod and a K&N drop in filter. I like the K&N and certainly felt a difference in throttle response but I'm thinking of getting an AEM dry flow instead, we'll see. I absolutely love my tuck and can't wait to take it to West Virginia this year. My next mod will probably be a Bully Dog GT tuner or maybe Uprev. I want the Hypertech Max Energy but they only have up to 2012 and it seems they have no ETA when they are coming out with support of 2013 or 2014. I'm definitely getting something before car week in Ocean City Maryland hits in May. Going to surprise some cars with the Xterra for sure! I've had many Nissan's and this might just be my favorite one yet. I have some pictures and video for you guys but I'm not sure how or even if I can upload them in this thread. If not I'll just have to create a photo bucket account later or something but I have to get off to work. I'm glad to be a part of this forum and I'am and always have been a total car/truck enthusiast. Hopefully I can gain more knowledge then I already have reading this forum and maybe contribute some as well. It's too bad there aren't any places to off road where I am in PA. I love finding trails less traveled as much as driving a fast car or a quick motorcycle on a curvy road. See you all on the flip side haha. :)

Thanks a lot guys!! I checked out GPAX, looks sweet! Yeah Stomper it's awesome. Kind of worried about the longevity of the clutch in such a heavy vehicle and with beating it every now and then but I think it will be fine for awhile. I think my next mods are going to be the PRG shift kit and Bully Dog GT Tuner. I'm also looking into this

Or this

http://www.prgproducts.com/shop/product/prg-2xe31mk-x/


Edit-Or maybe this lol

http://www.nissteclifts.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=58955&category_id=173&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72

I just want something small and a little stiffer for hauling and the towing I will eventually be doing. Also something nice for DD and not flatten out my springs or hurt my shocks. If I don't get either of these I'll just get helper springs. I'm trying to get my Photobucket set up for you guys but it seems some of the video's won't upload lol.

Viper I would go with the Add-a-leaf, it will help the stock leafpack last longer. The stock pack is notoriously weak. Or get a new pack altogether from Alcan, Deaver, etc....

This is quite a late replay but thanks, I'll have to look into it a little more lol. Oh and for anyone that is interested I'm linking pictures of my Xterra now in the General forum section, hopefully it works.

It's Been a Short but Good Run, Alas I Must Move On

Well it seems that I will be leaving this place. I haven't been around for long but I know longer own an Xterra, I traded it in. I got a great deal on an STi that I just couldn't pass up. Thanks for the warm welcome when I joined and all the info eveyone has contributed. Adios amigo's!
