Comments: I’ll probably focus more on mods that help vs for looks now, i.e. intake manifold spacer, exhaust. I’ve wanted an Xterra since I first saw the yellow 1st gen ones, and this is something I hope to have for awhile. I’m sure I’ve forgotten a thing or two as well.

How are you liking the OME Suspenison?
It’s good. My shocks were shot though from the armor. They were so shot that this added 2.25” in the rear and 2.75” in the front when it was supposed to only add 1.5” overall. This is my daily driver so I wanted something that’s better than stock but not too much (for now). My wife said it rides better so it had to do something good.

Great to know. My X is in need of new suspension, just rolled 280k the other day on the original stock set up, ( I believe, bought it second, maybe third or fourth hand.) I was initially looking at 5100's but I have heard they ride a bit on the rougher side. As this is also my DD I want it to behave well on road but would like a setup ready for the backcountry. The main goal is for the wife to say it rides better...here's hoping.

Hey, nice rig! What part of TX are you from? I noticed the Hidden Falls pic, I’ll be out there with some buddies on Father’s Day weekend. Oh, and I’m from San Antonio by the way.

Nice. I’m around the Dripping Springs area. I was supposed to go back to Hidden Falls in June but that’s been postponed a bit. It’s a quick drive so I’m sure I’ll be back there soon enough.
