Those are some awesome pics ;D

I don't know what kind of photo filters you use, but seriously... awesome pics.

And definitely an X to behold too. The rear bumper and sliders are just going to add to its already get out of my way factor. Keep adding pics ;D

Awesome job on creating such a sweet ride! Can you hook me up with more info on the rear view camera and open from the inside rear hatch mods?

ERNurseScott - Did you get my PM yesterday?  You can find the how-to's over on the "thenewx.org" site.  The "open rear hatch from inside mod" is great for my wife and I when we go camping.  That's the only reason why I did it.  This is primarily why I have the Xterra and the mods.  My wife and I go camping starting in March and end in November every year.  Atleast twice a month if not three times.  We love to get out of the city and just relax in the woods and take my truck around the forest and site see and hopefully spot some animals :)

Thanks for the compliments however Rev and ERNurseScott.  Much more to do however.  Next will def be sliders.  In which should have been the first thing I should have done.  :P
