    Well I bought another xterra, 3rd times a charm right? I was looking for a while to pick one up but all 1st gens are just so old and beat up for the most part. Found this 2 owner truck, same guy has owned it since 2005 and he babied it. Always kept in the garage he said and it was under sprayed every year. For a Canadian truck 15 years old this thing is incredibly clean. Hopefully I can slowly find some parts and build this one up at a bit. First things first is to replace the timing belt which is due right now than I am going to lift the truck 1.5" but by having the leaf springs re-arched + adding another full size leaf. I haul a lot of stuff quite often and I just want to add some strength to the rear end & hopefully they dont break on me anytime soon.

    The plastics were barely faded as he garage kept the truck for the most part but I painted the grill/headlight bezels, will end up doing most of the plastics eventually

    Some new shoes. Went with the same pro comp wheels that I had before as I liked how they sat with the 4.5"BS

    nice find...looks like it had Pathfinder wheels on it. finding a good SUV is getting harder and harder. I picked up a 02 this summer and am loving every minute of it.
