If you are comparing a Xterra to any SFA Jeep Cherokee or Grand Cherokee (xj, zj, wj) i only can say one word; IFS! Its no competition man. Any of those jeeps will walk all over any IFS vehicle, Xterra or 4Runner of whatever. And they are so much cheaper and more simple to lift. Fully modded rock crawlers don't count in the yota or nissian corner, because they all have SFA swaps anyway. If your looking for a DD/wheeler then grab any Cherokee pre 2005 model year and go to town. Its too bad so many manufactures are moving away from SFA, even Jeep only has the wrangler left, whcih isent the best DD if you have to haul stuff and whatnot.
