Congrats on your new X. I bought my PRO4X September last year and did the same thing, found some trails and had a little fun with only a few hundred miles on it. When I told a couple people they looked at me like I was nuts, "Your taking a brand-freakin'-new truck off road already? Your crazy." I just smiled and said "Well, that's what I bought it for!" That's what a PRO4X is for, and X's in general really!

I'm looking forward to seeing how your build goes!

This thread is great; I am in the exact same boat as you were 3 months ago. Fresh Pro-4x Super Black, looking to mod her up, make her mine, and beat her into the ground.

Can you give us a list of the mods you've done so far, and why, (which brand, etc), and your "to do" list?

Sub'ed.


Thanks!

Air box mod + K&N drop in filter - better sound + a little better off the line so to speak

Removed rear sway bar - better articulation , if I had to tow something heavy I would put it back on

Extended the rear diff breather - so when going through those big mud puddles etc the rear diff wont get water in it ( stock location is on the rear axle )

first thing I did was put sliders (shrocks, bought used) on , once you off road once you will under stand this should be the first piece of armor you put on.

I also bought a Intake Manifold Spacer , havent got it in the mail yet, It will increase mid range torque and hp , site - http://extremetruckperformance.com/?page_id=6

I bought a tampon (rear shackle that goes into the hitch) since there isnt any towing attachments in the back of the X

Also if you go off roading a CB is highly recommended , usually can find them at a decent price, where you mount the antenna is your choice, you can use a cheap magnet ant. until you want to spend some more and get a proper ant.

thats about it everything else is in the OP

To do list is lots but things I will be doing soon is stealthing the rims, looking to build winch mount, rear bumper, and a cage for the roof, also DYI snorkel is up there too as well a small lift in the front and rear (2-3")

Is extending the rear diff breather a big deal? It sounds really important but I don't know how to do it or why they would make something that can fail that easily. Everything else here looks like it goes to the top of my to-do list. Thanks!

for the how to for rear diff extending

its not hard just getting the right size tubing. I used medical tubing because it was free

i replaced the stock nipple with a nissan 1 1/2" nipple part # 38323-C601A...and added the tubing and put the stock breather at the other end behind my left rear tail light housing

Well it took about 5 hrs over 2 days but they are finished. Stealth Rims Baby Ya

I did this all on a drop cloth on my hands and knees, I did 2 Saturday and then the other 2 on Sunday.

The prep is PITA but it is worth it. They turned out Great! Gonna wait a week or so before I was the truck or go on any dirt roads to let them cure a bit

Now if that damn IMS would come in the mail.........
