This is my 3rd Xterra. First Grey one I sold and traded in for another race car (Could't stay away) Sold the race car, bought another Silver Xterra modded it a bit. Posted it for sale here on the forums after the trans went. Tried to save it but it was too late. I should have just got the trans rebuilt. This one has been great. Did all the preventatives. Previous owner took care if it. Necessary parts were replaced to prevent catastrophic failures. Bought it stock =)

Stupid of me but I knew the risk going out with the extra lift and not swapping out my rear brake lines. I got lucky this run. I need to go ahead and swap my extended ones in before I regret it. ?

Build is looking great. How do you like the front end ride with lift spacers and adjustable bilsteins set to the top setting? I have spacers but am debating moving the spring perch up 1 or 2 notches from the lowest one.

I like it so far. Have much more clearance obviously but I cant say much just yet other than that. I installed the rear alcan leaf springs and did the struts in the same weekend and it threw my alignment off pretty bad. Want to replace my LCA and add alignment bolts before I do an align. Still debating on replacing them with MOOG parts I have or doing an upgrade to an offroad/boxed LCA.

Had some annoying trans issues this past 2 week
First one of the solenoid copper bands in the TCM randomly cracked on me with 5 people in the truck. Had to limp mode all the way home for 2 hours.

Then after putting the TCM back in I believe I didn’t align it properly the first time so had to redrain and align the TCM properly.

2nd times the charm

She’s good to go now.

Updates:
Had my extended brake lines for the longest time. Got around to put them in about a month ago. Now I feel like an idiot because I have to go back and take them apart again for my
m205 and m226 that are on the way haha.

Also went and did the front bumper cut. Was getting annoyed of the running from the inner liner plus I think it looks more aggressive.

PS: Still looking to trade my 16s for 17s if anyone out there.

Got one piece to the puzzle today for the new to me m205 and m226 swap. V8 pathfinder axles.

Ordered a few OEM parts also.
Bolts for the axles
New oil seals for the m205

Mishimoto trans cooler came in today. I will probably install this sometime this week. Hopefully won’t have to fab anything to get this to work or fit.
I plan on wiring this to the existing radiator fan with possibly an override switch.
