Some X's came without racks? that is a crime against the Xterra. Man I took mine off to clean the debris out and The sight of the X without the rack made me rush my job to get it back on. They look terrible without the rack o.o

When I bought my x there was no radio in it so my dumbass goes to Wal-mart. I paid like 120 for the cd player and 35 for a "universal install kit" what a bunch of crap. The harness was useless because the wires had been cut and it didn't have the right den adapter. I had to buy another install kit from Ebay for another 20-30 can't remember, and had to mod that one to work as well. For future reference use Crutchfield there stuff is high but there cd players are very reasonable and they come with free harness and install kit, I'm prety sure it would be the right one too.

Learned why you don't spin the steering wheel when it's not attached to the gear box.

Airbag horn and cruise control is dormant waiting on a new spiral cable to be replaced.

Lock that wheel down!

First-K @ N FIPK- did this 2 days after I got the X. Why was it stupid, because I was just going off of the brand and not going with the concept. I just got a K @ N HAI(hot air intake)

Throttle body spacer-yeah.....I got one...(had one)

entire Gibson exhaust system. Basically I bought the entire system and all that I should have got was a muffler- then I spent $120 for them to weld it on. Now I have a chrome tip that needs some rock rash

AC Body lift-spent the $200 and used hardly any of it

Calmini SL- besides not buying their shocks. this was a stupid purchase. I bought the entire thing, not knowing that a 3" SL could just be accomplished with UCA's, shackles. and an AAL, and I would have done without the sway extensions and the bumpstop extensions

As far as repairs go-I had a shop fix a wheel bearing using 2 screwdrivers for $40.

Already bought the TBS, did the K&N at first, but I just got a volant. Was thinking calmini SL was looking like way too much... I've got your list from the cheap BL page and I'm about to do that after taking off the exhaust before putting on the new one and fabbing new bumper/grille. Should I just return the TBS or something? I'm bending and welding my own DT Headers-back exhaust.

As far as repairs and maintenance like that wheel bearing you mentioned... can I pretty much read up on how to do all of that stuff on this forum? It seems pretty complete to me. Just kind of scared to mess up my X is all.

@drives a rollback
I am sure that even without a DIY on this forum that if you run into trouble as you are doing the job we would all love to chime in and help.You can also probably create a thread if you cannot find one in the search asking for tips or suggestions.

@thread Luckily I Found this site before I started modding my X so I have been able to avoid the stupid purchases and mods .

I don't know how I just found this thread, but I'm all about forum necromancy.


Currently repairing a bad EGR that I feel partially responsible for breaking, and the tap / die kit on my desk next to me means I'm going to have to rethread part of my intake manifold.


Previous owner only did the stock intake resonator removal halfway before quitting for some reason. The resonator by the evap line on the driver's side wasn't bolted down (no biggie) and the other one by the intake temp sensor(?) is missing with the piping exposed to the air. Quick fix.
