nice looking ride. I actually saw an xterra today with what looked like the stock reverse sensors from a titan mounted in 4 places on the rear bumper. Is that what you did with your sensors?? if so, pics......thanks!

Yes! I finally got an XTickle endorsement!

mtbnole, thanks. The reverse sensor is this:

It is indeed four sensors connceted to a display I mounted in my dash. The install is easy, and I find it very handy to have in the city. Even outside the city it provides an amount of safety for any child, dog, bicycle that gets behind you unnoticed.

is your CB antenna attached to the rear hatch? how do you have that wired and can you please show us? pics of the hatch open would be great too...
Here you go:

here you can see the ground with quick disconnect for removal

Funny thing... I had to lower my antenna 2 inches on the hatch so I could get into my parking garage without hitting it, because of the new tires.

Lookin' good, Rev.

I'm kicking myself for not checking out those Weathertechs at the CNTC meet. Speaking of which, are you getting any abuse over the white letters being on the outside? :)

LOL. Ya I am! Especially at the CNTC. But with the stock rims I like it that way so they can suck it! :pirate:

Next time you are down my way you can let me know and you can check them out - mini coffee meet. Or if I'm in Stouffville visiting my parents I'd be up your way. But I do recommend them highly! Very pricey, but a good investment if you like to keep your truck pristine like I do.

Thanks Sami. I LOVE the tires. Bit loud compared to the stockers, but I like it.

What I paid will be irrelevent for you because I bought them in Canada in good ol' colourful Canadian dollars.
