Comments:
I traded in the 2005 S in August 2013 for a brand new 2013 Pro4X with manual transmission. I had heavily modded the '05 but was concerned about putting more money into it with its age. After weighing options for regearing, air lockers, etc - the money was better spent on a nice down payment for the new truck with the e-locker, 3.69 gears, manual tranny, creature comforts and newness! I brought over my Shrock front bumper, Chef Nate rear bumper, NXRocks skids, Gobi Stealth roof rack, Volant CAI, BullyDog tuner and Cobra 75XL CB plus added the NissTec suspension and Nitto Trail Grapplers to go big. I had hoped to not need to BL this truck and I got what I wished for. I barely fit in the garage (<0.5" of clearance). I am now 0.5" taller than the original Prius Plow without a BL!
I have had some run-in's with Prius' so I named the '05 the Prius Plow. In honor of her and to carry on the Prius-hating tradition, the new truck is officially dubbed Prius Plow 2!

UPDATE 7/26/14: Prius Plow 2.5
Tipped over the truck May 23rd at GoneMoab. Finally got back the X from the body shop and installed an InSain Fab aluminum roof rack with 40" LED light bar today!
August '14: Titan swapped!

Upcoming mods:
Snorkel
Titan swap??? DONE! 8/23/14
Side mounted machine guns???

Good eye. Yes, I brought the '05 grill over with me. The '13 grill would have had to be trimmed to clear the winch.
I run the mid-grade tune with 87 grade fuel. Nice trade off for economy and performance.

sweet looking rig! Nice that all of your parts can transfer over. Sure makes the transition into a new ride that much easier! Hey I am new into the X scene and live in Denver too. I am slowly building up my rig, just put a Hefty bumper on order, as well as a gobi rack. I have a Kuat basket already that I transferred over from my old vehicle. Soon I will be working over my suspension and getting some tires when the budget allows. Are there any places or groups you suggest rolling with that a newbie can roll with? I used to be heavy into the desert off road scene but new to the 4X4 scene so I am not starting fresh on my off road driving skills.

JackAttack13 - keep an eye on the Mountain forum for posts on trail runs. We have an awesome group of people who try to get out in our beautiful mountains regularly during our (too short) summer wheeling season. Hope to see you around!

I will do for sure. I am out of country for the next month or so on business right now, but will be ready to go once the wheeling season picks up. How late in the year do you guys hit the trails?

It all depends on the snow. Some trails at lower elevations are open year-round, but there's very few of them. We're usually lucky to get past Halloween up high in the Rockies, but we do have fun with snow runs on an easy trail in the springtime.

Mark, thanks for answering for the Colorado crew. Shows everyone how cool the guys and gals are around here!
There are many, many trails that can be run stock. We welcome everyone and have a great time hanging out!
SWEET! I look forward to meeting some new people and having a good time on the trails.
