Title: Not an Xterra but I had one at one time.
Post by: defibvt on August 02, 2011, 08:35:51 PM
As many of you know I have been a member of AZXC but due to selling the X and buying a different vehicle I no longer am a member.  I do offroad but in a 74 CJ5.  Here are some pics of some of its transformation.

Its original form when I bought it.

There is more to come but the body is tweaked by the previous owner's boyfriend.  He installed it incorrectly and after last year's Fat Tire and the bumpy trail I went on, it all got tweaked.  Now being fixed.

All metal bending and burning is being done by Doc aka Milton Pugh at Stone Soup Metal Works.

"An offroad vehicle is always 2000 dollars away from being perfect."  If you don't believe me add up your mod list you have in your head.  I bet it is close to 2000 dollars.  LOL.
