    I can probably grab some later today but if you want an idea you can check out the Calmini site. Yes it's a front winch bumper and skid plate. Came off a sas'd rig so the front skid has been changed a little but it still fits an ifs rig. Would probably need a new coat of paint or powder.

    Chrome soft 8s 15x8. Something a little different in the sea of black wheels

    Yeah, Im currently running the AT2s but as a 32" and have had no issues really besides a sidewall puncture.

    I did get the other 2 wheels today... Now we wait for rubber

    I think they will look awesome. I havent seen anyone else running the chrome soft 8s which makes me feel special I guess. I also have a set of black lug nuts on the way for these wheels and a set of cheap "NISMO" valve stem caps.

    I've seen my fair share of Xterra photos, and I've never seen one with chrome soft 8's

    Agreed! And we all know that you've taken it offroad once or twice, so it's not considered a mall crawler. lol

    Thanks guys! Had alot of positive on the various bookface pages i posted it onto. I gotta pull those 2 off and go back to stock until I get 2 more tires. Im also going to have to trim my sliders down a couple inches in the front and roll the fender in some to get the propper clearances. May just cut the metal, not sure how I want to go about it yet

    Theyre 4" BS -12.00 offset so a pretty good fit for my rig.

    Did some work over the weekend. Changed oil, t-case fluid, fuel filter, and cleaned the air filter.

    Is the front of your truck only being supported by a cinder block under each tire....?

    They are indeed. The blocks actually are mostly full of concrete, about 80% full. Hollow blocks are a nogo. I dont use these for anything other than gettingthe front off the ground to drain oil and pull skids

    Gotcha. I was semi nervous for your safety if they were hollow

    Well I did a thing. Calmini UCAs, warn hubs, and AC TRAs installed. And somehow I got the alignment better than it was. Tracks straight as an arrow
