Default My New Xterra

Sold my 2015 Xterra since I dindt want that much money tied up in a vehicle.
Got me a 2005 Xterra 4x4 in Off Road trim (this adds electronically lockable rear diff, upgraded suspension, hill descent control)

Added wheels/tires off a 2015 PRO4X to the truck to make it look more like the one I sold.

82,000 miles have about 11k in it now.

Nice rig. I've always liked the looks of those. Someday I want to transplant a Cummins 4BT into a Dodge Dakota 4x4 Chassis. That would be a cool EMP proof truck. All the 4BT needs is a battery to turn it over. It's all mechanical. No computer to get fried.

Nice LITTLE truck. Here's mine.





Beside my 2" lifted, DD Jeep Commander, for comparison.

Your truck is good size and looks very post-apocalyptic

But i live in an urban environment and one of my parameters for EXFIL was a handier lenght/widht so I could squeeze thru sidewalks etc in a pinch.

I live 4 miles from downtown Pittsburgh. Mine's designed to push all the Escalades & Navigators off the road, of all the mommies heading to Kohl's & Macy's "End-of-the-world-sale" when the Apocalypse hits!

This is my shtf vehicle. If it still runs. In the event of an EMP the computer may be fried. But I have another computer in a safe location so hopefully I could get it going again. I really wish it had an older mechanical diesel in it. Maybe someday. I've got a front hitch on it that receives a 12K winch. So if the 4x4 isn't enough, the winch will pull it out.
