Comments: This will be a slow build thread but this site has been great in helping me with my researching and seeing how I had a 1st gen, I know what I need to get that meets my wheeling needs, but at the same time, keeping it as my DD since I do a 50 mile commute each day.

CURRENT:




Here's a short story about me and my passion for Xterras, I owned a 2001 Nissan Xterra SE in Alpine Green. It was my first 4x4 so I wanted to see how far it can go mod-wise, and I had installed Shrock sliders, Shrock Skids, Shrock front bumper with WARN XD9000, tons of off-road lights, many more to list. Sadly, there was some family trouble and I had to sell it to help my family out (Still wishing I kept it for trail rig). Here's a couple pics of it:

2001 Xterra:



After I sold it, I got a Ford Explorer Sport Trac, it was a nice truck but it started having problems, with 8 visits to the dealership in less than 2 years with repeated results of not being fixed so I had enough of it plus warranty was about to expire so didn't want to be stuck with the out of warranty repairs so I traded it in:

Then after I traded it in, I had scoured every car lot looking for SUVs and none had what I wanted as capable of going off-road, recovery points, aftermarkets, etc so I decided to give the Xterra another try seeing I had owned one and it was the most reliable car I have ever owned, so took one out for a test drive and I was immediately sold on it! Bought a 2012 Xterra Pro-4x!

Night Shots

Here's some nightshots.

I was headed home and I decided to take a country road home, saw a couple having car trouble and activated all of my lights to warn traffic and stayed until a tow truck arrived. This was around 3am in the morning. The pics was taken after the tow truck left with the disabled vehicle.

This is all for now! More pics as I work on some mods eventually.

Nice X! What kind of problems did you have with the sport trac? My mom had an 01 with nearly no problems. Now her 07 Explorer is a different story... She's reaching 100k miles now and the wheel bearings have been fixed but still bad noises. Since day one the transmission has acted funny. First thing in the morning it likes to "hiccup". The dealer says notjing is wrong and it's normal. Yeah, BS...

Thanks. Yeah I had that transmission issue, was very annoying, and I kept having problems with tire sensors even after they all had been replaced, i would still get the warning errors on my dash about it. Even the slightest spin on a wet road when taking off, it'd go into 4x4 momentarily....just a headache it seems. Was so glad to trade it in.

No news there :scratch: When the 4x4 kicked in did it sound like a pop and you could feel it? Whenever the wheels spin when it's in auto it sounds like somethin is gonna break. All of it is annoying but I guess it's the nature of the beast? Did you have the 4.6 V8? That sucker hauls! It's a nice vehicle with all the goodies but it's got some quirks...
