Comments: So I need to say a little bit about how this all started. I was searching for many months for an Xterra. I was constantly aggravating my friends at work since I was always viewing xterra’s for sale on my lunch break. After passing on a 2010 Pro4x 6 speed manual X that I really liked, (was afraid wife wouldn’t be able to drive it) I decided to trade in my new 2011 pearl white Hyundai Sonata SE for a brand new leftover 2011 Nissan Xterra S model that I purchased in June 2012 in South Jersey. I decided to pick up some sliders but didn’t want to wait 6 months for shrockwork sliders so I picked up some AJ sliders instead. I ended up not wanting to mount them so I listed them on the forum and craigslist. So along comes SE-Rooney who spotted my craigslist ad, and who I had never met before and he ends up buying them. He talked about how I should lift my truck and go wheeling. I asked him a bunch of questions on parts, etc. and I was a bit leery of doing anything since the X was new. I asked if he could take me wheeling one day so I know what it is like and what to expect. What a big mistake that was! I immediately came home and started ordering parts, etc. so I could lift the X and go wheeling again. Just from that 1 day, Rooney (Keith) and I have became good friends. So thank you Keith, for getting me involved in this expensive sport! :)

The Duplicolor "Bumper Paint" started chipping off in patches after about 2-3 months of road driving, wasnt impressed. Ive had no issues with the Rustoleum yet

i haven't wheeled it since the paint job. it is my daily driver and haven't noticed any marks in the front. i plan to wheel it at ECXC and can provide a status update after that.
Thanks. Yea i prayed plasti-dip on the front grille and emblem on my X and its not holding up very well. Let me know how yours does!

That rustolium stuff works waaaaay better then plastidip . Plastidip never sticks good to chrome emblems and peels after a week or two . Rustolium highly recomended ! Truck is coming along nice carl .
