    So. Not only is she my first build, but she is my first car. Just a few days after my 17th birthday I got blessed (by emptying my wallet) and splitting the costs with my parents with my BEAUTIFUL 2000 Nissan Xterra SE. I have loved her from the first day.

    Great looking truck. I don't get to see red ones. If you got the mod bug get rid of the rear hitch if your not going to use it as well as sway bar etc. Keep posting pics.

    Everyone always loves them. Imagine sitting in bumper to bumper traffic in the streets of New York on the George Washington Bridge, and all of a sudden you see that pass you. LOL. I just made it my goal for this year to make it to NXM

    Holy Crap what a difference.

    Went to the beach last night to test out the new tires. Didnt even need to air down. She was floating on sand. But I did learn I needed to trim more metal XD well got to that today and shes all reassembled and Phase one has been completed

    Looks great! With the 33s, I had to take the Sawzall and cut the fender all the way back to the tub. Managed to rework the plastic so you can't really tell.
