I have owned this Xterra for a little over 4 years now. My wife and I bought it back in 2012 when we were living in Silverdale, WA. Two weeks after buying it we got our first snow storm of the year, we got 5-6" of snow over night. 4wd was really nice and made getting around easy.

Over time I have done a few modifications to the Xterra. The biggest modification I was the PML (poor man lift). I used sway away torsion bars. I have had 3 sets of tires on the Xterra, the original Yokohama's that came with it when we bought the rig (I loved them), General Grabber AT2 (loved those even more), and currently we have the Cooper Discoverer STT Pro (absolutely love them. The Coopers are aggressive and can be loud, but have kept me out of some sticky situations.

As far as future plans (looking for part donations  :P ) I plan on doing the alignment again, adding Bilsteins, fixing leaks, and redo the brakes.

Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure. These pictures were taken after my LED light bar was stolen and before I replaced it.

Nice rig man.
If you ever need a hand we can always get a Mod day together.

I'd like that, as you can tell where I live there is nothing but asphalt and we all know how floor jacks, jack stands love sinking in that crap.

There is a person selling some yellow bilsteins on craigslist, but he wants 300 for all four which is bad considering they are NIB but I could order from a dealer for that price. 

Thupertrooper (Victor):
I have heard nothing but good things from the 5100  Bilsteins.
You might have to measure out the actual length and get longer ones.
I would do some research on where to get them like
Or a shock warehouse.

Pinchel (Rob) can probably pitch in.

pinchel (Rob):
Nice rig, glad to have another 1st gen aboard! I also have the Cooper STT but I got mine just before they released the Pro version.b Let me know if you have any questions about your rig, mine is always getting work done because I always wait till that one critical moment. Haha..

Oh, and is your rig still registered for California then?
