    What to look for on the 1st generation Xterras? (2002-04, OR, SE, XE)

    Gents, After looking at early 2000s 4Runners, Cherokees, Monteros, Explorers, etc., Xterra is my #1. They seem to be currently undervalued when compared to the competition. My question is what should I look out for? I'm new to Nissan and I've done a few hours of searching and can't quite...

    Home on the Highway - San Francisco to Ushuaia in an 87 4Runner.

    ¡Buen Viaje! If you do Baja don't miss Playa Tecalote outside of La Paz. It was described to us as a "real life Corona commercial" and didn't disappoint. It's free boondocking and described in the Church's camping guide
