    No worries mate! Appreciate the compliments!


    It's two layers of vinyl, one laid over the other to make one sticker. Luke (Xterror04) is the one you need to get with to order that XN decal. He does them in tons of colors too.

    Yeah, but Smurfs suck.

    It is almost too pretty to pin stripe it all up. But, what would be the point of having it if not to explore all that the unpaved world has to offer? ;)

    So JEALOUS!! When we went to the dealership to buy Karen's Sentra, I drooled over this blue on the showroom floor for about half an hour.



    Did you salvage any of the mods off the Elephant before trade in?

    Very cool man... I'd be interested to know the build date.. I may have had a hand in making it ;).

    On thing I'd have to do is black out the grill and badges.. Chrome looks good on this color and the green.. But when you black them out it makes the blue pop big time...I'm about to. Lack out my wife's Toyota ;)

    Either way man... Congratulations

    When I'd walk down the last building line at the plant these and the frontiers made me want to rush and buy one ASAP

    Rep sir...

    Oh is it a 6 speed or at?

    I know a girl that works in my cousin's insurance agency that has a Sentra in this same blue. Good looking little car.

    I left the lift and hitch on, because I didn't have any stock shackles to put back on it. I pulled my Volant intake and my battery tie-down from Eternal_SiR, and took my phone mount, GPS and dock out. Didn't really have any other mods.

    Oh man, that thing is beautiful. Congrats on the new ride man. Did the dealership make that sign for you?

    Yep, the dealership made the sign. It was on the door after I signed the paperwork and was on my way out to drive away.


    David, if you can tell me how to find out the build date, I'll let you know if she's one of your babies. :)

    Yep. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought of putting gold BBS wheels on it. ;)

    Negative. I bought a 4x2 before I discovered the online Xterra communities. Aside from the beaches, there's not a lot of places to offroad here, unless you want to wallow through mud pits, So I thought I was pretty much done with 4WD vehicles when I got rid of the Bronco a number of years back. Now that I'm a part of this family, with trail rides and events all over the country, not having a 4wd Xterra was starting to gnaw at me. So I bought one, once my equity in the black was enough to justify a trade.

    Yeah, it's not like we have to deal with snow and ice in the winters here or where you are. Four wheel drive is almost strictly a recreational option for most southerners. But it is nice to have that choice.

    lol i always thought the opposite, figured you guys in LA used it often. For some reason I always think swamps, lots of off road parks, and a long rainy season around the coastal area there. Is there any big differences besides that 4wd that you have noticed between this one and your old one?
