Welcome, I've seen your setup over on TNX, as well. How are those 700# springs treating you with no extra weight up front? The X looks great, and I'm really impressed with your in-cab navigation setup.

Actually really nice on the road. A little stiff off road but I have a bumper and winch coming Tuesday. So that should even everything out. Starting back up here on EP because it seems to be more of what I actually want to do with the X.

Cool build! Great platform - I really enjoyed the utility of my Xterra. Aside from the SMOD it served me well.
I was over on TNX as well.. sold my 2006 Granite S about 6 months ago.
I was on the fence between getting a new Pro-4x and Rubicon Unlimited - got the Rubicon as I've had many jeeps in the past.

When I went to the Mid-Atlantic Overland Festival (MAOF) there were a few Xterra folks there - good peeps. I camped next to them and we had some good camaraderie.
