    I am thinking of buying a 500 Pop to tow behind my motorhome. We would love the buy the car, but I would really like to increase the ground clearance for forest service roads. We hike and travel in Utah--lots of back road opportunities. The reason for the Pop is that the X is not towable four down (without being on a trailer). The Pop with manual tranny can be so towed. The Pop is much lighter than, for example a Jeep Wrangler--our motorhome would struggle towing a Wrangler. Any information about raising the Pop like the X would be appreciated.
    Thanks a lot.

    Does this affect the original stock handling by a whole lot or just minimal or even better than stock?

    The bull bar looks awesome!!! I didn't know this could be done when seeing that our bumper is all one piece all the way up to the headlight. Before had ARB bumper fitted to my Xterra, and always wished ARB could be fitted to our X!!! lol
    Where did you get the bull bar from? Is it available in other finishes or style?

    Daystars 1.2 Series 2 inch lift kit, fits the 500x AWD and FWD,

    whats cool is that the lift kit is FMVSS 126 Compliant, which means that the factory ride and stability is maintained, daystar spent over 15K on over 4 different FMVSS test assure the kit was commercially feasible and would be safe.

    I might go crazy and lift my X lol like this one

    I think it's more feasible to lift than lower because our X is supposed to be a SUV or mild off-road car, not a race car. LOL
