  1. FAQ/Common Questions
    I saw this bumper on the rig of member @Zke96 in his post here. One of the reasons I'm asking is because I just picked up a 2004 with a similar loop-style bumper and I've never had one.

    So I am in the process of fabricating an custom offroad bumper for my 2001 Xterra with a buddy of mine who is a mechanical engineer.

    So I realize that on bumpy terrain trucks just shake, lol. But I did own two other 1st gen Xterras over the past decade and they definitely didn't do this - hence the question! Basically, when driving over bumpty/washboardy road, the front shakes a fair bit - looks like the hood but also the...

    I am excited to say I am a proud owner of a 2002 Xterra SE!! It is 125k miles old, 80% new Michelin tires and this thing was very clean for its age for $4500. I had to abandon my 95 Pathfinder at 276k miles due to rebuilt tranny slipping and sticking again and the rear main has started to leak...
