Sounds about right. You'll be able to sell any of the left over. Or wiser to hold onto it.

Alright y'all after I get the taxes back I'm going to do one last big mod for a while since we will be moving into our new apt and money will be tighter. I'm thinking either a 2 body lift and wheel spacers or a snorkle.

Bl and spacers pros: more clearance and wider stance. Also making the x higher up will make it look agressive. I also love the look of a nice wide stance.
Cons: can't think of any other than having to do it

Snorkle pros: better gas milage, cleaner air, also less worries about drowning my intake. They look absolutely sweet on a xterra
Cons:I have to cut my fender. Costs more to do.

So what do u guys think? If u had the option which one would you do

well the body lift comes with bumper relocation brackets so it wont look "goofy" unlike most trucks that just let the bumpers be 2in lower

Ok it might not look as goofy as a body lifted wrangler but if you are already clearing 33s what would be the point in the body lift? The point in lifting is to gain ground clearance

Well I could clear a 35 with a bl and the spacers with a few inches to trim out. But stickin with 33"s, if I add the wheel spacers ill have to do at least an 1in of triming but if I add the 2in bl to that I won't have any prblems

I would say the body lift. Snokles are good and all but u can make one. Plus to really go as deep in the water as a snorkel can go you electronics would be shot. You can make something that will raise ur intake point and still get better air.

wider is harder on ball joints Cool
