    4in Short Arm Lift
    33"x12.50" XTerrains

    With the money I've spent on this hobby I wish I would have stuck with case modding.

    Nice Jeep, I've got a 02 Xterra 4x4. as I'm from the midwest and its totally flat where I live, mudding is my idea of off-roading, heres a pic of my X after some fun. It was more fun driving around afterwards and pulling up next to people in their big trucks and such and just being like,"yeah i actually use my transfer case"

    I've really only been cleaning it up so far, like repainting the tow bar(as it look ****) and such.
    30x10.5 tires
    2 inch lift kit waiting to be installed(new shackles for rear, crank torsion bars up front for IFS, a bigger lift would mean new control arms)
    and I've a K&N on the way and going to plug all the resonators in the intake to get some more HP
    I'm hoping for a rear shrockworks bumper(someone hits they total their car tough) and tire carrier and new tires in a 31/32 size when my current ones get too worn.
    I've stopped spending all the money on my computer and started spending it all on my ride too haha.

    mmmmmm V8 90 would be nice lol that 2.5 Duratech diesel just doesn't sound right, even if it is great.

    As nice as a utilitarian Land Rover sounds, they're sadly just not available in massive numbers over here,and virtually non existant in my neck of the woods, servicing costs would probably be ridiculous too. and if they are they're usually the very expensive luxury versions.

    Nice :thumb: That is some hardcore kit there. Where exactly do you live? Much off-road action?

    I bet the wife's wishing you stuck with fiddling with computers eh? :p

    US, Colorado. Pretty much the state where all outdoor activities thrive.

    Oh yeh, in the states there is no point, especially when you have Wranglers in abundance, they are your version of the Defender tbh.
