Yeah...it's definitely not staying stock, that's for sure. I was under the impression that the Patriot wasn't very offroad capable...?

That's exactly what I want to do with it. You hit the nail right on the head. Good description.

I like how the two posts he refers to are of a one-off SEMA Patriot.

i had a 2004 xterra, probally one of the best vehicle i have owned, and it did get me into the offroading scene, granted i wasnt doing the things i am now with the jeep but offroading is not all about climbing 4ft rocks. to me its about getting out there to see nature and things you normally wouldnt see. the xterra allowed me to go out and see parts of my area that i never new exsisted. i ended up trading it for a 2007 Fj cruiser which i lifted and put 33s on there which i use in colorado for many of the passes.

I would get a newer Xtera and throw a 3" body lift for cheap. Its SO sunk down on the frame, it wont look bad and you will pick up approach and departure angles and be able to fit decent sized tires.

Who makes a decent lift for them, that isn't going to cost me three arms, a leg and my firstborn son?

No one if I remember right.

Which is why I suggested body lift.

I've seen an Xterra with a 3" BL. Trust me, it DOES look bad.
