Excellent news! Can't wait to see one and take if for a test drive. Not long now.

I have always preferred cable throttle. Oh well, I know I'm fighting a losing battle, so no point in bitching about it I guess. Neither of my vehicles have it, so that's all that matters for now...
To the majority of buyers, these new features will be welcomed. Keep in mind that those of us that wheel and still adhere to the "keep it simple" ideology are very few in the big picture. However, I hear what your saying. Personally for me, the two bonuses are the engine and the rear locker, the rest I don't care about.

I do agree with you on the e-throttle control though. When we were test driving it, it just didn't have that "feel". Oh well, like you said, there's not much we can do about that.

Overall, I think this redesign will do/sell well to the general public.

I have to agree with Pete... the e-throttle removes that feel of the road...

Damn, I was hoping for Night Armor color. Guess I'll have to wait for the second one! [Crybaby]

Saw a new Nissan add on TV a couple of nights ago,
has the 05 X in yellow. Pretty quick shot but looked good as far as I could tell. Need to see it in the flesh ..........

SOXC got a mention in another newspaper (albeit brief, but cool none the less.)

It was in an article written by Bob English for the Globe and Mail "Megawheels" section. On page G15, included in the 05 Xterra writeup is a mention of SOXC! Cool!

Here is a link to a scan of the page I scanned this morning:
www.xterraxcursions.com/soxc/globeandmail.jpg

Here is the excerpt that mentions us (second last paragraph toward bottom):

I'm sorry to see the sheet metal "character line" that connects the wheel arches on 00-04 X's is not part of the new design.

I'm also not a fan of the new squared wheel arches. Glad to see the Pathy got rounded ones...

I keep thinking I'm going to start liking the angular fender flairs but it ain't happening for me. I despise the style of the current Chevy full size trucks - except the Hummer. The square fender flairs don't work for the 4Runner either, in my opinion either.

I do like the face of the 05 X much better though. Can I retro fit that on my 02? laugh

Overall still a great looking truck - except for the rediculous backside badging. [ThumbsDown]

This may have been already asked, but where is the alternator mounted on the '05?

It appears to be in the same spot as in previous years... very low and toward the front/passenger side. It would have been nice to get that thing up higher, but oh well.

Just play nice and it will be fine. Or give it a good bath after playing dirty!

2 questions:
What does that sticker say on the back window of the yellow X?

Does anyone have access to an FBI photo lab so we can digitally enhance the picture and read the MSRP sticker on the white one (or is that just glare or a build sheet or something)?

Thanks. wink

We had a preview of one ('05) at our club meeting on Friday the 4th. It had the stickers on it (which also tie into the new advertising campaign). They basically point out the new 265 hp/ 284 torque features. They've actually refreshed the advertising campaign and come up with some pretty good stuff, you'll see a lot of the "X" in the new ads. Not the truck but the actual letter X. The dealer operations mgr. out here who works with our club to keep us abreast of things, says he thought it was cool we refer to the trucks as, "the X", and they've integrated that into the advertising. You'll see; two kayak paddles, two band-aids (my favorite), two ski poles, etc, crossed up like an X. There's also this great picture of a night armor colored truck with a kayak on the roof, very cool pic. I need one for my garage...
