Clifford's Build

(1/5) > >>

Clifford3200:
Welcome,

So a little background on myself; I was raised with motorcycles, painting and body work, until the age of 13. I then moved to cars because they were a bit more abundant than bikes. At age 16 I only hung out with guys who shared my interest in cars, and that hasn’t gone away at all. At 17, I got my first car, a 1999 Hyundai Tiburon. I took it apart daily to say the least. On the 18th day of July in 2014 I purchased my Xterra. I am the VP of NOMAD OFFROAD LLC. Our website will be up shortly!

The background of Clifford.

She is a 2 Wheel Drive S Model

Clifford and I met on July 15, 2014 and I went to visit her every day after I got off work.
On July 18, 2014 at 6:08 pm I asked her to be mine forever. After 5 hours and 22 minutes, I was finally able to take her home.

She currently sits at 169k miles

She came to me stock, but she wouldn’t stay like that for long…

* So on the way to the 2017 Kick Off Run, unfortunately, Clifford, Myself, and my pup Oreo were in an accident in Scottsdale. A Mitsubishi Eclipse collided with my front drivers side tire, and broke my spindle. Clifford had to be towed because her steering was messed up. I'll include pictures of the accident below.
* February 15th, 2017
* Was going to pick up Clifford from Andy's Auto Collision today, but while he was driving, a metal piece shredded the Terra Grappler so Thursday I will be taking my spare over there to grab my truck while they replace the tire and wheel. Pics included below
* February 17th, 2017
* Installed the Dash Cam, External Speaker, and Relocated my CB Radio Antenna
* May 10th, 2017
* My Xtrons Radio crapped out and went into a start-up loop so I'm getting a refund and I'll be purchasing a Pioneer Radio instead. I had a custom box made to recreate the JL Stealth Box and I will add pictures later, once the project is complete.

Jo-BOB:
youre going to need new coilovers if you do a 4in lift.

pinchel (Rob):
I vote for the Cooper STT Pro or Goodyear Duratracs

Clifford3200:
Updated for 3 more added stickers

And I think I will go with the DuraTracs, I like how aggressive they look on my truck currently and they aren't too pricey

Clifford3200:
Edited for install :)
