The day I got my X

First started with the front coil overs and UCAs to fit new tires



After some effort both front and rear suspension was finally finished, fitted tires on (DM for any questions, I've probably seen every possible issue including finding out the car has a swapped rear axle from a pathfinder)


After the alignment (which caused the grease jacket on the ball joint to be punctured and then replaced after grinding out the coil bucket and moving cam bolts) finally willed up the courage to start the bumper replacement which took significantly more time than expected.


Finished with a pretty solid product that I'm thrilled with and drives shockingly well, aside from the shockingly bad gas mileage.


Not pictured is the new head unit or the replacement off-road lights wired into the factory fog light switch
Thanks for the read and please reach out with any questions about any pricing, parts, or the fitting process.
