    Default Josh's 2014 Xterra Pro 4x - guided by necessity

    Current (November 2017) photo:



    I bought the Xterra new back in January 2014 and have had it all over the Northeast since then. The build will be slow, with mods being done as they become necessary. All I've done thus far is the addition of stock-sized Duratracs, the Yakima bars, and the Tepui Kukenam RTT. Next on the list is a full OME suspension swap, mostly for load carrying needs. Enough with the verbiage, here's some pictures from my most recent trek into Bald Eagle State Forest in Western PA. I met my brother there, as he was heading up from North Carolina, the weekend of September 19th.

    Nice X man! How many miles on those good years so far? Are they the load range E? We were just chatting about those.

    Thanks for the kind words! Got about 6k miles on the duratracs thus far, very happy with them. They're load range C, in the interest of weight and MPGs. In my opinion, E load range isn't really necessary with these trucks. I've driven through dirt, mud, rocks, and brush and never came close to puncturing a sidewall, as far as I can tell.

    Skip the OME for the front. Bite the bullet and go PRG/SPC UCA's and at the very least Radflo's. In the long run you will be much happier, trust me.
