    new to this Xterra thing come from a Toyota/Chevy background . Hope to learn some good tricks and secrets from others on this site .
    Picked up a gently loved 109k 2011 pro4x this last week and am totally in love with it so far .

    No real big plans for it other then maintenance and exploring the pnw.

    Glad to have you over here too! Lots of good info here and I really think you'll be happy with the Xterra. Especially the P4X.

    Took it out for a quick drive around mount hood yeasterday to get a good feel for it , shocks and struts are going to be needed soon along with the clutch but other than that it’s a fantastic driving rig . C1C8765C-8A2F-4805-B01E-EE4DDC883D37.jpeg

    Been busy with work so no real work has been done to it other than polishing up the headlights and redoing the stitching on the shifter knob . I’m going to have to redo it because I used canvas thread and it’s a little to thick so it’s not laying down into the leather and just feels weird on the hand when shifting A656097C-D131-4AF6-95F8-8113102E5400.jpeg 5BA8FA17-BF45-4D39-8EA0-24FF8AF8E7FF.jpeg A24F8D6F-E158-4654-9D3A-3B6B6919169D.jpeg

    Headlights look great. What product did you use?

    There is still some fogging on a couple parts of the lenses but good enough for me 1BC23426-076A-447F-81DF-3F8A12907EDF.jpeg

    Welcome from Moab. That rig will be perfect for running and the Cascades.

    I’m late to the welcome party. Apologies, but welcome aboard. Be sure to use the coffee and bourbon machines.

    Took the Xterra out for a little drive to go see some fall colors around mt hood the back way , Really in love with the way this thing drives the power is so effortless and rolling through the six gears is just a joy.

    I'm glad you're happy with it! The Xterra is one of the better balanced vehicles I've owned as far as capability, power, and functionality go. The IFS and leaf spring rear were huge selling points IMO.

    And as a plus getting 19mpg on my drive up and around mt hood is nice .

    Haven’t seen any service records for a tuneup or anything so I need to throw that on the list of to do’s.

    After doing some measuring and brainstorming I think I’m gonna go ahead and build a front bumper instead of building a winch plate to fit behind the factory bumper. Be a lot easier for me

    I’ve had these led work lights laying around forever and I think I found a good home for them 56E5B94C-30E4-4E51-A2D0-48EEF611897D.jpeg

    Got out for a nice little drive with the fiancé , drive up the Washington side of the Columbia River gorge then down the historic Barlow road . Really need to get around to putting some new struts and shocks on it but still waiting for my lift to be shipped . The rain is a bit rough at this point because it nearly bottoms out when I hit bumps . 7AA29424-3051-4566-B6B7-3000F8990B10.jpeg

    Thanks man hopefully as soon as I finish selling off the rest the parts on my jeep project I’ll start getting a little more done on the xterra . Made myself a promise no more car parts till I payed off all my debts , almost there just need to pay off the last little bit of the fiancé ring then I can place a big ol order at summit racing , tires , t chain , shocks , struts etc etc

    I swapped to marine terminals. I had to drill out the hole in the fusible link and crimp an eye on the ground cable but they've been rock solid.

    That’s how it should look from the factory . I’m sure it’ll go up another half inch or so when I replace the struts. Definitely rides 1000 times better not banging off the bump stops every time I hit a bump in the road 805D28D7-9578-48D9-B22D-67B9739FCA27.jpeg 4D30AF37-500E-42A5-8857-7A3E7394D549.jpeg
