Pro Comp Nitro series Suspension Lift

I ordered one of these for my 2011 Xterra as I wanted just a little taller ride height and be able to clear 33" tires. I haven't been able to locate any photos of this system before and after. Has anyone here run this system?

I aint seen anything about this kit. Didn't even know pro comp was making kits for the xterra but 2 things

1: you'll be able to fit 33s because 33s fit on a second gen. stock with just the melt mod, so itll give you a nice stance

2: Its a pro comp kit and pro comp makes good stuff.... I looked at the kit and think you'll be fine. don't sweat it

I can't really help with any pictures, Im not rolling in a 2nd gen lol

good luck and post some picts when u get it put it on

work in progress

Thanks, I'll post up some pictures as soon as its done. The kit will be here tomorrow and a shop nearby is going to do the installation. I couldn't find many lifts for the Xterra, there were a couple others but they had the same amount of lift for a crazy amount of money. I know ProComp has a good reputation and I'm not really looking to do any hardcore offroading. I like the looks of the added height plus the small amount of lift in the back should help keep me from hitting my head on the rear hatch when the gate is open. My next step is tires. Looking to do an all terrain and had very good luck with the BFG but was also recommended the General Grabber all terrains which have a similar tread pattern. Thinking of going with 295-75-16, using my stock wheels since I think they are the coolest looking wheels that come from the factory.

cool,cool

On those tires have u thought about a 285/75/16 (which is like a 33x10.50)
vs those 295s.... either one of those sizes are going to be expensive cause there a metric

check out a size by size on the calculator (it has the 285 listed as just under a 33 but it varies from manufacture to manufacture and most lean on or just over the full 33 inches)

That's not a bad price for all those components actually. Your Pro4x suspension should be good with that for quite a while; at which point you can start installing module mods to get even more out of it

33s fit really nicely into a 2nd gen. I had to do some minor trimming myself, but that's because I got after market wheels with very little backspacing. I think my offset is -10. Stock wheels won't have a problem with 33s, you will want to do the melt mod to push the plastic of the inner well out of the way so it doesn't rub on compression. It will probably turn fine and not rub stationary or when turning at a slow rate, but on a hill or a faster turn you'll get some rub without it.

But this is how 33s first came out on my X:



Good luck, and definitely post some pics!

Revu thats a nice looking xterra, looks a lot like mine, same color and all. Is yours lifted at all in that pic or is that with 33's on stock ride height?

I cant remember if I posted pictures on here of my vehicle as it is stock or not. Will try to find some pics when I get back later today.

I found some really nice bumpers that I want to get down the road when my budget allows for it.

Thanks a lot!

Yeah in that picture I had the Bilstein 5100 Adjustable Shocks in the front set to 2" of lift, and the PRG AALs in the back for another 2" there.

The aftermarket bumpers like the one from Shrockworks are really awesome. Since it does add some considerable weight in the front if you ever do get one you may consider upgrading your springs to heavy duty ones like these: Rocky-Road
or eventually do a coil-over setup. That would keep the front end from sagging under the extra weight, but can make the ride a little harsh if the weight isn't there.

Good luck with all your modding, and have fun!

I was looking at bumpers from a place called HeftyFabWorks. Never heard of them before but they look good. I'll check out the ones you suggested. Will be a while before I do anything like that. Also the lift and new tires are going on tomorrow while I'm at work.

Sweet, I bet you're excited! Definitely take some pics!

I really like the way the heft bumper looks on the facelifted X. It follows the new grille very nicely. There have been mixed reviews on Hefty regarding Hefty on the forums here, but last it was being discussed (Yesterday I think lol) we'd gotten word that the issues had been worked out and that it is a solid option.

Good to know, I'll do more bumper research before I purchase one. I ended up going with the General Grabber AT2 in 295/75/16. The shop installing the lift is going to deliver the truck to the tire place so everything will be ready when I get out of work.
