I don't have a lot of pictures of the truck, but I'll get on it. Here's a couple to start off. The first one is before the lift but right after I put the new wheels and tires on. The second picture is from taking her up the first time after the PRG lift. The last picture is right after the Titan Swap. Lots of work left to do though. The newest pictures are on page 3, I think. I'll have some new ones when the rear bumper is going on.

Cool, I've seen those in your sig before. Good looking truck and sweet picture. Have you ever considered popping off the plastic bolts? Looks good from a few feet back but looks terrible up close. Once they're out they won't go back in though and new ones are $2.50 a piece. I've also thought about getting them converted to bead locks. Any thoughts to that? OMF does it for $200-$300 a wheel I think. I could get their "sim-u-lock" for a lot cheaper I think and it would still look a lot better on those wheels than the stock "simulated bead lock".

P.S. - Where'd you take the picture in your sig?

Never thought about anything with the wheels, except that they are damn heavy. My next set will be a lighter true beadlock wheel, but not sure which one.

The picture is on top of a dune overlooking the desert floor in Ocotillo Wells, which is the desert I go to about 2 hours from my house.

After months of planning and saving it's finally happening. Just got off the phone with Greg. Ordered:

S.A.W. 2.5 Coil-Overs w/ External Reservoir (Over 5" of lift!!!)
S.A.W. Extended Axles (till R180 fails)
PRG Titan Upper Control Arms
PRG Tie Rod Extensions
PRG Stainless Steel Braided Brake Lines
PRG Adjustable Rear Shackles

I would never, ever consider ordering suspension parts from any one other than Greg as long as I have a Frontier. It can take a few days to get a hold of him, but it's always worth it.

Things I still need to get:

Longer Bilsteins
Rear wheel spacers

Now for sale:

PRG Upper Control Arms for Frontier
PRG 3" spacers with rebuild kit from Greg
Rear Bilstein Shocks

All of these items are practically brand new. I put them on in July, so they've been on for just over 2 months. I remember I did an oil change before I put the lift on and I'm still over 1000 miles from my next one. I change every 3000 miles, by the way. These parts never got beaten on hard because I was being gentle while I was waiting/saving for the Titan swap. Now that I have a M205 sitting in my living room for back up I'm ready to get these parts on and push the truck harder.

PM me if you're interested. I'll have a for sale thread up soon too.

Congrats! I've seen the ext res SAWs and only heard good things.
Did you not order 3-6" Bills from Greg? What kind of wait time did he tell you?

Damn...that will be a nice setup.

Too bad I am not ready to get rid of my Bil 5125's, otherwise I'd give you a good price.

Thanks, I'm stoked on getting 2.5's with the external res, it wasn't originally part of the plan. But I learned my lesson on going all out, to do it whenever possible.

I am ordering the extended Bilsteins from Greg tomorrow. We were just talking about so many different things on the phone and my brain was so scrambled from studying all day that it was the only thing I left off the order.

I thought about getting 2.25" S.A.W.'s for the rear but they're all out and aren't making anymore at this time. Thought about the 2.0" radflo's too but I just don't think it's worth the money for the back right now. The Bilstein's ride great and I don't think need anything better, at least for now. They're really the best bang for your buck, in my opinion.

I might upgrade from the Bill's when I get a new leaf pack in the back. Probably the PRG pack, or maybe a custom Alcan pack. I'll have to see how much I'm sagging after all the armor's on.

When were you thinking of getting rid of those? I might be able to wait and run the Bill's I have for a while. Then again, the Bil's are one of the cheapest things in the whole project. So, not really a big deal.

Alcans are nice, and specific to your needs. The X guys I know love them!
Also saw you have the JWT. Did your clutch go or was that preventive?
