Hey everyone! First let me say that these forums are awesome! I've got a question though, I have an S model xterra (2006) with the stock tires. Is it possible to put on the offroad model tires without needing to add a lift kit to make more room for them? If so, has anybody done this or does anybody have any pics? Here's my X on Jekyll Island, GA last Sunday...

Welcome.

Yes you can easyly fit OR size tires 265/75/16 with out a lift or trimming. You can also step up to a 285/75/16 with a little modification to the inner plastic fender.

It's pretty dang tall. I have to first step on the step rail, then eventually use the rear tire to stand on to hike the bike up all the way. It's sort of awkward to do at first, but over time you get used to it. I'm not sure how tall the X is but I'd add 3-4 feet in height with the bike on top.
