Thanks for all the input. Keep it coming. I love these vehicles . The idea of having a cummins powered one is cool. I just need to decide whether to go on with it or find a different heavier platform. My Xterras always seemed pretty truck like to me.I feel like a few hundred pounds anywhere in it could be compensated for by stronger suspension. Sorry for my lack of knowledge but I have just been driving them and not trying to modify before.
- Who thinks the 4bt will kill the tranny? I would hope the driveline would be the weak link by far.
-I was just thinking I would put a cool hood scoop on that says cummins and let 'er stick out the hood unless it will obstruct view too much.
-I am hoping to accomplish getting a nice sized 4wd suv , with much improved fuel economy and an engine that is all mechanical .
