    Sliders and Radflos came in yesterday! Going to bed line the sliders and got the Radflos installed last night.

    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.

    Can't wait to see how this progresses! I'm envious of the power your 4.0 has over my 3.3
