Calmini shock towers, FOA Coilovers and a few odds and ends collected >>>>For the new guys this is what I built last time<<<< Here is "Stan" as in Stan Smith off of American Dad.. 2000 Xterra Auto fully stock.. for a couple days anyways Only issue with this is the 200K on the dash... Timing belt was changed at 110K so it will need one soon.. May 1st 2011 Pictures taken as soon as it came home. Felt good driving it home Well if you have read my Turk build you will know I have had some dark times. I lost Turk in January and bought a Jeep.. Yeah yeah.. I could not find an Xterra at all during Dec - Jan. After owning a 1990 Jeep YJ for 2 months It was time to go.. Loved it on the street.. Hated it off road.. After me sinking about 900 in the Jeep I just couldn't take it any longer. So the Jeep went up for sale in April.. Craigslist is great. How could the guy that started the nXm drive a Jeep? Well May 1st at 2pm the Jeep was gone.. In my excitement I checked Craiglist. Sure enough.. a 2000 Xterra 4wd 200K 4500.00 I thought ok.. So the guy told me he wanted the SUV gone that weekend.. So buy 4pm I owned it, 3600.00 paid in cash. Now the plan! I now had some mod money and 40 days to get the Xterra ready for nXm. So the local seXTERRA guys started the "Lets mod this thing out" but I would need the parts.. The day I brought the Xterra home I started ordering Stickers for one.. I mean come on! and then night I hit ebay for lift blocks and bolts. The next day I went to Discount tires and bought my 33" Goodyears / and 15" Soft 8s. Then that same day the truck would be torn apart. Parts started flying off! I needed a helper Painted up.. Tires came in.. That same week RacerXXL brought me some AC lift shackles he didnt need anymore and we did some wheeling. I feel likes its always good to wheel the truck your mod'ing it so a WOOLYs trip was needed. Then a issue popped up on the trail... The brake line seem to rub up against the body.. It picked Woolys as the time to break. 45.00 dollars later and I was back on the road.. I added the Gen 1 Cobra CB Mod OH NO! Now I had been waiting on my 2" BL pucks for over a week and guess what showed up? In my excitement I ordered the wrong size.. I ordered 2"x2" instead of 2" tall 3" wide. So no problem.. Called the dude and sure we can exchange them..Still had 20 days till the nXm Well I couldn't wait to see the tires on the X... Now this is why you need a body lift on a Xterra to fit 33s. Mod I seen KChurch do So I had not received the new lift blocks and was about 2 weeks out so I was starting to panic. Calls seemed to be getting ignored from the place in Florida I bought them from. I came to find out till a week after nXm that the place had refunded my money and never told me.. PML day! I always keep a eye for parts and what not, And then I spotted a ARB bumper for sale. Normally Id be so-so on it but the price was great.. $250.. Only one issue with the deal.. It was in Florida Well a call to "TimRich" asking if he could bring it up on his way up to nXm and it was mine.. PANIC TIME!!!! So I had came to the conclusion that the body lift was not going to happen.. But I had bigger fish to fry.. nXm was a few days away and I had RATTFINK coming up from Texas to help..
