Did you go with the steel skids or aluminum?
They're steel.

Man O man, your rig just keeps getting better and better.

I really like the cockpit layout and the matching M/C in the backround lol

Ohh, you mean this guy?  It was originally meant to match my Frontier, which was silver, but I guess it does match the Xterra pretty well too.

Wow that is some nice PRO-4X.

I love the pictures. I'm working on building out my 2015 PRO-4X overland style and hope to have some pictures up soon. Right now I am recovering from a rather unfortunate holiday injury (dislocated ankle)

In looking through your build there are the following:

Drivetrain:
- PRG aluminum front diff bushing inserts
- PRG poly steering rack bushings

I can't seem to find the poly steering rack bushings on PRG site. How do you like them and what are they called on the site? Thanks!

Thanks and can't wait to see your build. The bushings did make some difference, but not huge because they're only inserts. I think they were worth it, though.

Looking good Rick! She's come a long way from the first time you hit the trail with Randy and I. I also like the picture of your bike in front of those turbines. I'll have to give you a call if I'm working out there.

Yeah, definitely give me a call when you're up here. Do any of the turbines you work on use LM blades? They're made in North Dakota and my wife was wondering if they are used down here.

Yes, so far I've only worked on GE turbines and they use LM blades and Tecsis blades.

Oh nice, she'll get a kick out of that.

You can also tell her that the LM blades are better quality.  O0

Rick,

Are these what you describe as - PRG aluminum front diff bushing inserts - on your build?


http://www.prgproducts.com/shop/product/diff-bushing-kit/

One more question (definitely not my last), did you get the Ubolt flip kit or gather the parts separately?

http://www.prgproducts.com/shop/product/xterra-ubolt-flip-kit/ I purchased and have yet to install the OME Dakar setup which includes new ubolts. If the kit is the right way to go, I'll give Greg a call and see what it would cost w/o the ubolts.

Thanks,

Hank
