Comments:

After owning my 2001 Xterra for 2 years and pouring lots of money into it, I decided to purchase a new Xterra.  The search seemed to end before it even started after seeing a Lava Red Pro-4x at my local dealer, but it was a automatic. :crybaby: After tracking down another dealer 45 mins away with a Lava red that they claimed was manual only to find out it was automatic as well, I traveled another hour away to find my night armor Pro-4x manual on forth of July.  Proceeds from my 2001 will be used for mods on my new rig.  much fun to come.

In with the new
This was taken 2 blocks from the dealership where I purchased my X.  I couldnt resist taking it offroad.

 (Yes my roommate bought the same truck, we are twins for now.  Mine is on the left.)

After fitting the KM2 tires, love these tires.

Hey Jordan...that is a sweet new ride!  Like the Gen 1 too...looks like you are an Xterra vet.

Look forward to wheeling with you in Big Bear during the CANVAZ run...you'll be fine for Rattlesnake Canyon. 

You might even consider Gold Mountain the next day...if you want to mod that stock front bumper!

yes i cant wait for big bear, last time i ventured up there i didnt have much luck finding any of the trails.  it will be nice to meet with some veterans who know where they are going.  :)

 i was sad to see ol' blue go but it helped alot with getting me started on the 2nd gen.  lots of fun was had in that old truck, but new adventures await.

I really like the fact that you drove it straight from the dealership to the dirt. You'll fit in just fine here.

Welcome  ;)

WhiteKnuckle sliders from usko99 installed, front grill and burger stealthed.  Got a lot done this weekend.

Radflo 2.5 coilovers and 2.0 rear emulsion shocks came in the mail today, so excited. Now I just need the rest of my lift from PRG.
