We will soon have a new Xterra. I just have to wait for some work things then I'll be able to buy our Xterra. Starting to look at what is out there and plan for a few things. The first things will be a 2.5" lift and sliders.

Just wanted to say hello.

The only thing that I have to still decide on is... I'm looking at the offroad or a S model. The cost difference is about $1000 for the same equipment (minus the offroad specific parts: locker, skids and Bilsteins) Is it worth the $1k for these parts? How strong are the skids? I guess they are better than none.

Yes the OR is worth it if you plan to go off road.

Welcome!

The skids are junk but it's better than having one of those invisible skid plates. But the $1,000 is worth it alone for the locker.

Speaking as someone who got the Off-Road model, I think the answer lies in how quickly you plan on modifying the car. I have replaced everything that the package comes with (Except for the locking diff) already, and so there is a little regret there. However, I do love the locking rear diff, and if your mods will take a long time then maybe you will be happier getting the Off-Road model.

Welcome - get the OR. Think of all the money you will save by not having to buy the OR badge! :geek:

Welcome!
As others have said, the OR model is worth it for the locker alone.
As mods will take some time for me, I thought it would be best to get the best offroad package availabe. I don't regret spending the extra money one bit.

There's more than just the locker to think about, although I agree it's pretty awesome. You can't get the Rockford Fosgate package on S models, along with interior colors. Get the OR model man.
