  • PitSnipe (Kyle): Wow, I have not heard of this issue. 15 hour job for a $50 part is nuts. Hopefully someone that knows of this issue will speak up.

  • downs44: Got an 06 that just went through SMOD. Got everything replaced. Now my low oil pressure light is flickering on after the engine warms up and the truck is at idle. Doing some digging on the forums it looks like a common problem is the rear timing cover gallery gasket leaking and causes the symptoms. Looks like a 15 hour or so repair for a $50 part. Was wondering if anyone else has had this issue and any words of advise. To save some dialogue, the oil pressure sensor is about a year old and I changed the oil and filter after i noticed the light and that did not fix the issue.

Gen 1 Body Lift
« on: June 18, 2014, 10:37:21 AM »
Hey everyone,I have a 2004 Xterra, I cranked torsion bars, leveled it but am looking into a body lift so I can get a little larger tires on. Not looking at anything crazy, another 2" or so. was wondering if there are any lift kits that are better or more easily installed than others. just curious on getting a few tips to help me out. I was also wondering how long it would take to install approximately with two guys working on it. I also assume I will need the bumper relocation and steering xtension kits as well???? thank you for your input

I have a 2002 and I put my 2" body lift on myself.  It took me a long time because my rig is rusty as a mofo being from New Hampshire.  If your rig isn't too rusty it can be done in around 5-7 hours give or take how many beers you drink.  If you are doing only 2", you don't need to extend steering.  You will need to relocate front and rear bumper which sucks.  ALSO! don't make the mistake I did.  Detach the heater core hoses from your engine or you will break your heater core which is a GINORMOUS PIA! I would piece the kit together yourself.  The AC one is unnecessarily expensive. I put mine together for ~$70 bucks.  There is my 2 cents

Well, it depends on how big the tires you want are, but I have 32s with only the torsion bar cranked and larger shackles in the back. I don't like how body lifts change the actual height personally, but it's all personal preference I guess!

I did this a few years back when I had a first gen.

I agree the "kits" are super expensive compared to what they can actually be put together for. And I second WHPIVxterra I didnt disconnect either and cracked the hose, and it was a pain to fix.

It can be done by yourself. But having a buddy is always helpful. And good tools is always a plus. I think with two guys that have some idea of whats going on a good 5-6 hours will be plenty of time.
