Background Comments: Started to wheel 12 years ago, And have evolved into overlanding in the Northeast. (Mostly the North Maine woods) And camping with the family. I have had many and built many different 4x4 vehicles.

I Bought the Xterra Nov16th 2013. After trading in my Dakota (CapCamper) Because of a 2nd child on the way and the Xcab Not fitting an infant seat.

The build plan is to set up the suspension to be a great onroad/offroad set up. Something smooth on the road, But can really handle the bump's/wash boards when offroad. With the 2nd child on the way on 5/2/2014, I put off the big suspension purchases like redoing the whole front until 2015. And just did the simple spacer/shackle for now.

TJM extended travel set up with 1" Top spacer, And HD Springs. The HD springs will ride a little ruff with all stock weight, But I did this in prep's for an aftermarket bumper this winter.And then will ride smooth.
After I get these I will be saving up for Adjustable/longer upper control arm's
After these and the arm's I will buy a Dakar Add a Leaf set up to bring the already sagging rear springs back up to stock with an additional 1-1.5"s of lift with my 2.5" Lift shackles



I also Built a awning for the truck
First I used these

This is the awning finished.




This is all rolled up and ready to go.
