Last week I installed a back up alarm that I robbed from a vehicle that was traded in.

Today I changed the oil and rotated the tires.

Installed an LED brake light/reverse light strip on the rear swing arm that I robbed from a traded in vehicle.

Painted the burger, rad skid, tow hook, wheel center caps, and valve stem caps pink.

Added a locking handle for the wet box that I got from a TNX group buy and finally got time to install my MOLLE panels!

Dang,  I forgot how the first style mock ups looked,  see you made some modifications to make it fit a little better.  Looks really good man.

Just finished my 2" body lift install, it was easier than I thought. A lot of random tools an extra hand and a little bit of beer go a long way.

Decided to start around 2pm after I had come back from getting my sliders in Blythe. It was only 100 degrees outside Saturday so I wanted to take advantage of the cooler weather. My buddy and I started loosening everything and removed the front and rear bumper.



About an hour in and on the step of removing the driver side body mount bolts. One of them would not break loose. We tried a couple of tricks to free the bolt. We then  busted out the breaker bar, and my buddy snapped it like it was nothing (beast mode).



After about an hour of trying to weld a nut to the bolt, we had a beer and I realized I had to to cut into the floor since its sealed and the bolt was rusted solid inside. I busted out the LFH and chisel to pop the welds loose. We fabbed up a new mount siliconed the hatch and proceeded.




After that everything else went ok, we stopped around 8pm and I left the radiator hose and brackets to deal with on Sunday. Luckily Napa is closed on Sundays, so I went to Oreilys to find a longer hose. The OEM replacement is actually an inch longer from Sater but still needed a little stretch. I found another random hose in the back that was just a little too long. I decided to use that one and trimmed it for a custom fit.




The time consuming stuff is all of the little fab work that needs to be done. It would probably be way faster if I had a bigger garage and more work bench space.




I could barely squeeze out of the garage I had about 1-2" of space

Rear Fender



The 2" Body lift looks great and is well worth the cost of the kit. You really do not need the whole kit at all besides the pucks and body mount bolts. The pucks are generic 2" lift style. Everything else could be made with scrap metal. The steering wheel feels a little stiff I may have to go in and adjust it. The body roll is far more noticeable now, wheel spacers and stiffer springs should help with this.

MISSION COMPLETE!!!

After adding the pucks in front and the shackles in back, my wife declared that I have removed any remnants of femininity in the Xterra.

No, the hardlines just stretch a little.

I have 2.5" spacer up front and lift shackle in the rear. Everything looks fine. It might be an issue off road, but I don't plan to wheel it until I get my new suspension with extended steel brake lines.

You can do the cheap extended brake line mod and just bend out the solid lines.
Im 7" wider up front and no extended brake line.

I bolted up the sliders today after work, truck looks way less monster truck now  :-[

I think I will set the new suspension to 3" when it arrives, I may have to remove the aftermarket roof rack basket to clear the garage. These sliders are beefy and heavy!

I can finally use my Hi-Lift jack on the X now yea!
