  • Conundrum: lol, they're contagious and more lights coming on, worrying to see the oil pressure indicator and also the windshield washer fluid lights, however I'll just wait and see if it goes away when things dry out. Good thing I took it through emissions this morning. Never Fails. lol

  • Conundrum: Wow, with all the rain I've been in as well as flooding in the X on Fat Tire, I have a new issue. Set light blinking rapidly and goes away after restarting the engine. I did a little research and I guess the cruise actuator can get nasty and seems plausible since I went through a puddle on purpose on the right hand side and that made the set light for cruise start flashing again. I'll check it out after the rain stops. lol Have fun and be safe out there everyone.

ShockBlue_Scott's build
« on: December 28, 2016, 11:06:08 AM »
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.

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.

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
4x4parts.com
Or a shock warehouse.

Pinchel (Rob) can probably pitch in.

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..

I have ordered things from 4x4parts and they take forever to ship. Someone needs to open something similar here on the west coast.

Yeah I am going to register it as soon as I get the title from the bank. I procrastinate just like you do and fix it when it is broke not preemptive about stuff like that.

What do you think this thing is worth if I was to sell it? I am looking at a 1999 Toyota Land Cruiser. The Xterra has a few leaks, it appears to be a power steering leak, will confirm that, brakes, shocks and has 236K on her. Most of those miles are all freeway.

Okay, I was actually thinking less then that. But I will entertain offers as I am trying to find a decent Land Cruiser.

Maybe less, the leaks are probably normal for the 1st gen and just require maintenance, but people will likely ask about the upkeep in regards to price.

I'd be willing to take 2500-3000

How did you blacken the hood?  My roof lights glare really bad off my white hood - been thinking about making the hood black or adding a shield under the lights.

I used Plasti Cote but might redo it but this time around I will use actual paint.

I am also thinking of repainting the X in flat dark earth, or tactical taupe.
