Hello, everyone. I just bought me an Xterra less than a month ago, and I can't manage to keep the thing clean!!! I find any excuse to go off road. I wash it, and a few hours later I'm getting it all dirty again!

So, first upgrade (technically downgrade) I did was last night. I removed the mud flaps. My next step is going to be getting some Shrockworks rock sliders because I would hate to damage mine and dent my car. I am not looking at lifting it for a few years, and am wanting to do tires when mine wear out. In the mean time, what cheap items should be next to improve off-road use??

:bounce:

Welcome, where ya from?

How-to's and Member builds will give you more ideas than you may want. Mudflap removal is an upgrade if you play offroad, that or they get torn off eventually.

Rear diff breather extension is dead simple, dead cheap, and an absolute necessity for off-roading. I would also advise getting at least an engine skid from Shrockworks or Hefty Fabworks (NOT the OEM skid! Useless thing.), as it covers the most vulnerable components.

You could lift the X very affordably with spacers and shackles while you save up for the nice stuff. Upgrade the shocks while you're at it.

Welcome!

If you have an automatic, do some research on this forum on "SMOD" AKA "Strawberry Milkshake of Death" -- save you a lot of worrying later.

Welcome from Arizona. I know what you mean about going off road all the time. We have monsoons going on (getting near the end I believe) here, and on the way home last week, my wife warns me about the flooding. Then she pauses a second and states, "nevermind, I guess I just gave you an idea." :) Sure enough, had to go riding through it seeing how high I can get the splash.

Welcome to the group!

I think mine is too new for that. its a 2011 and as far as I know they fixed that prior to this year model. correct me if I am wrong so I can sell this thing and get a newer one! haha
