    Kind of. I still have my Tacoma. I'm keeping it for work because the 4cyl mpg's are great but its too damn small to do anything other than work out of.

    So after watching one my buddies build his Xterra and make it a basic animal, I went out and got one. Already got the mod bug as you can see, should be done in a month or so after the lift, tires, wheels, and front and rear bumpers.

    I'm still have the taco so I have an excuse to still mope around tw!!

    But I will be spending the majority of my time on thenewx.org

    The Xterras just never grew on me, I never really liked the idea of Nissan making SUVs and trucks... They should stick to what they do best 240, 300, 350 and 370 and GT-R :)

    x2! My pops has a S/C xterra and I definitely like the inside A LOT more then the tacoma. Its fun to drive and is a beast in stock form.

    Given that it is a good point you have, the Xterras appeal to me way more than an FJ (even after test driving one) and the Frontiers and X's have fully boxed frames. Other than that, its all personal opinion but I've been wanting an xterra for a while so we'll see how she treats me and maybe I won't trade it in for an FJ, which even though isnt my favorite, its still number 2 on SUVs for me.

    Definitely will, but the new 4runners are insane. I got a impossible to pass up deal on the xterra, even though I still wanted it more anyway, but the 4runners are awesome.

    I think Nissan in general has "okay to pretty cool stuff," but I always hear of them having trouble lasting long. And as we all know, Toyotas last forever.

    But hey, as long as you're happy. I wouldn't even be mad if you started a build for it (even tho i know the haters will come out)

    Hey the Nissan xterra is a great car, had it couple times as a rental car, my buddy has one i actually was going to buy one before, its compact, offroadable, nice looking, pretty good on gas and the deats on the inside can be configured in many ways PLUS has a nice roof rack built in!
