Adding schrock bumpers front and back . . . Lift?

I am adding bumpers front and rear.

Will I need a lift?

Would a 2.5" lift be beneficial or necessary?

Which lift kit? Prg?

Shouldn't need a lift to add bumpers, but there will be more weight than stock, so the vehicle at rest will be a little lower than it is now (no different than loaded vs unloaded ride height)
The beefiness of the new bumpers may look more "proportional" with a lift and tires.

That said, amount and manufacturer have been the source of a little debate but it largely comes down to how much you budget for the project.

The use would be as a daily driver and light offroading.

Towing of an atv and razr 4 900 and gear on a trailer.

There will be a winch on the front.

I would like to put 33" tires on the stock rims. I am assuming this is the largest that would fit on the rims.

I may try the melt mod without the lift.

I like the way the x rides and handles now.

Maintains the stock ride height or a couple of inches more travel/height would be fine.

I was thinking something like this: prg advanced coil over kit if I did something.

Also Do note that if you ever want to lift it after you purchase your bumpers they will not mount to an X with a Body Lift.

I personally enjoy my Body Lift and PML. It gave me a total of roughly 3.75 Inches with no change in the ride whatsoever really, at least I noticed no change. I did remove the rear sway to and that did not change much at all.

Wow that is an expensive lift. I am sure it is very very good though. I personally would advise lifting the X. The weightof the bumpers will cause the truck o "sag" or lose some height. So to off-set that negative you add a lift.

I agree with not doing a Body lift as you have a 2nd Gen which can fit 33's with only a suspension lift. I did a BL because I have an 02 which requires Massive cutting without a BL.

Don't do a body lift if you just want to run 33s. Just do a suspension lift. Greg from PRG has been sketchy on customer service for the last few months, so I would recommend Nisstec instead. They also have a Black Friday discount code right now, so it will probably be cheaper from them. Good luck!

Like ryandavenport Said...

"PRG has been sketchy on customer service for the last few months,"

They won't answer thier phones or my E-mails so I have no choice but to go with the Nisstech Ultimate 2.5 w/Bilstien and Deaver. (Actually a few bucks cheaper)

Shrockworks is 3+ months out. Won't even fire up a Welder 'till you send them Half up front. For an additional 10% they'll shorten your wait to a month and a half.

So again, I'll probably go with Nisstech front winch/Bull bumper and rear bumper with W/swing out tire mount. even though I think Shrockworks makes a superior product, I just aint go no patience.

I know Schrock and he is busy.

I'll wait since he spent his money with me in the past.

Here's the Link to Nisstec's Xterra Suspension parts page. Nisstec is also quick to answer the phone and provide answers to technical questions.

We're running the 2.5 Nisstech lift, Shrock front and rear with 33's (285/75R16) and love the way it looks. It's my wife's truck, sits taller than my 1st Gen, which kills me. But I'm gonna fix that! I'll just let the air out of her tires.
