I really like that ATC map case. Might have to get me one.
Rode one of those stumpjumper carbons and they are rad! So light and really good pedal efficiency, although coming from a downhill bike I guess anything has "good" pedal efficiency lol! I'll have to give one of those fat tires a go though.If you can test ride a Fatboy I recommend it. It doesn't even really feel like riding a fatbike. I have a old 26er Specialized Hardrock that I have overly upgraded which is still serving duty as my mountain bike. Really gunning to upgrade to a 2018 Stumpjumper Carbon Comp at the end of the year but we will see.
Awesome to hear! So far I'm loving them! I do need to trim a little more fender though due to the offset and titan swap... But otherwise I'm very happy with this purchase. Thanks for the feedback!I'm running at about 34 or 36 psi. That's what i ran my other wild peaks at and they still had half their tread left after ~40,000 miles with no weird wearing. They are an absolute tank in the snow though, much much improved over the AT2. Will be getting them on some loose stuff in September up in the UP but I expect them to perform to my expectation.
I see when you received your rear leaf kit they had the springs to make it an "HD" kit separate and you installed them. I kinda did the same on my frontier, I ran the medium setup for a while and just added the other leaf to help with the sag. That being said, the yellow silencer pads weren't included with the extra springs. Looks like yours didn't come with them either? Did you not have a hole on each of the spring for them? You mention the noise from the pack, and that would help. I just used generic GM pieces I picked up from advance autoparts. they help eliminate that metal to metal spring noise.
I just got back from a trip to the UP of Michigan and think I experienced it a coupe of times on trail. Am planning on adding UCA's, 1" spacers, and shackles next year to go 3" so will probably have to clearance the coil buckets anyway. That being said, my current review of the OME HD kit with a fully loaded rig is excellent. It was night and day between my Colorado Trip suspension setup and this trip to the Keweenaw Peninsula with probably even more weigh or equal loadout. If you want a suspension that will perform and are somewhat tight on budget, the OME HD kit just works, it's not fancy but it works.Really like your Xterra! I just bought an '08 Off-Road and it came with the OME 2.5" lift on it. It seems like I'm having an issue with the coil bucket hitting the UCA, when the front tire droops. I noticed you have the same lift, are you noticing the issue?
