well as you all know i am trying to sell my truck and wanting to get( need) a 4door so im looking at the pro-4x. Only thing i don't like about it is there all automatic man. I just hate thinking if i ever died out from a battery issue i could not kick start it. Sooo.. my question is who has a lifted pro-4x?? Im planning on a mild lift, maybe calmini again and some prg radflos since there bigger and thats about it, Maybe and maybe a 2 inch body lift but doubt it because my gf has to drive it. let me know guys, also pictures would be awsome

Its not a dirtbike... Thats what the key is for! If you mean push-starting, then just carry a set of jumper cables for the rare occasion (every 5 yrs) that your battery may go dead. On the other hand, I don't blame you for wanting a manual, just not for that reason.

I was thinking the same thing.

The only thing you have to worry yourself about is that if you get a 4wd, you will have to watch your CV angles and if you install monster tires, the front diff may have issues in the mud since you do live on a wet island.

I have a lifted Pro-4X. It is a 2009 King Cab, 6-speed.

Here is my build thread on ExPo. Pro-4X Build Thread - Expedition Portal Forum

I have Old Man Emu front springs and struts and PRG 2" blocks in the rear. I get 2" of lift out of the front. No upper control arm noise.

Let me know if you have more questions.

the Pro-4x is the same as the nismo the CC are all autos


why not get a CC SE? Everything the makes it a Pro-4x besides the locker and stickers you just said you are going to replace. Get an SE and save the money for mods. You will still get a M226 in the CC SE 6-speed so you can easily put a true track locker in it.

yah man thats true, but they look so good. I might have to consider your opinion so i can put mroe money to mods.. I will check my dealer what they have. and i really do feel better with a manual. Nissan sucks for not making a 6spd nismo

I have to ask, will this GF be a wife at some point? If not, then the GF's opinion shouldn't really be the deciding factor.

Plus, an Xterra is a shorter wheelbase so lifting it too much will make it a bit more unstable.

get the 4 door truck. its great for putting the stroller and all the goods you will be hauling to the house - plus dog etc etc that will follow. my wife is from Europe and always had small(er) cars - but she LOVES driving my truck.

Ahhhh, then her opinion really does count.

I only asked since I have seen a lot of posts where it is up to their GF/BF on the decision and not themselves.

yah i know what you mean, also driving an xterra would be nice, something new and i would want to lift that bad boy, there is like no lifted xterras on my island.. Maybe i could be the first. I seen prices and they are alot cheaper then the frontiers, so might be a thought. Don't want to give up the truck but i have to..

Do you have room on your property for a trailer? If so, then an Xterra isn't that bad since you can always hook up the trailer when you need to move heavy stuff.

i don't have a trailer, would be helpful but here in hawaii you have to register and have it safety checked and everything like a regular car. I don't think i'll be moving big heavy things but i would love to have a bed still, To me its going to be the price they give me on a new fronty compared to the xterra. which ever fits my budget will have to do. thanks for your inputs.

I liked the ride and drive of the CC over the Xterra - so I bought CC and put taller ARE cap on back - think you might find that by time you get kids stuff in x-terra, you don't have much room left.
