May 09- I put on the straight pipe. Basically just hacking off the muffler, gives it a better growl, and i feel like i got better gas mileage.


June 09- Used inspiration once more for the hi-lift jack holder yet modified it a little bit.




I then had a dry spell where i just wheeled alot and broke a u-joint and also blacked out the grill.

Then I deployed, where i was able to get the money to start actually gettin the truck to where i want her. I ordered Shrock sliders, the PR tiregate, Calmini rear bumper, Airflow snorkel, And the titan swap parts.

MAR 10- Put on the calmini rear bumper and the tiregate. Within a couple days of each other. Pains in the ***.



Then had a legit wheelin trip in the snow at evans creek with some of the guys.



Love this pick Graham.

APR 10- Went ahead and threw on the snork. Sketchy but it came out well, I also went ahead and got a red top, put a cb in, and got some husky liners which i HIGHLY recommend.
Snork







And the other goods. (yes my truck is dirty as hell)
CB& Husky liners



Red top


I have also tinted the windows and added the rain guards and decals stuff, but not to notable. I did have 2 people ask me what the snork was today which was pretty cool, me and my buddy laughed. I should have some swap pics at the end of this month, and if shrock would ever ****ing build my sliders i would have those on as well. Hope youre happy mike haha.
Some videos, all videos by poster are me.

May-10
T-swapped the whip. Took a day with three guys, would have been quicker but had to do the usual parts run around.
Passenger side:
Just the titan upper and the radflo's

Stock frontier lower

Titan upper and lower on coilover bolted on spindle not connected yet

Everything attached titan upper, lower, spindle, and extended brake lines.

Driverside: Basically everything is the same minus the bolt that you have to cut. We tried everything but basically you have to cut it.
Spindle off coilover disconnected from lower.

Pulling the half shaft out.

The bolt

Cutting "the bolt"


I dont have any pics of driverside reassembly because we were trying to knock it out quickly but its the same as passengers side.

Sweet!

How do you like the hi-lift? I've been *****footing around with the OEM scissor and 4x6 blocks and that's nearly useless unless on pavement or packed.

Wondering how well it grabs and how you position it on your truck...

June 10- Put on the new hi lift mount. Had it sitting in my truck for like 4 months and finally put it on. Its also swapped in these pics, with the block added in the rear and the titan u-bolts.


Also finally got my sliders from shrock. Only took them 6 months to get them to me.


And then a little fun with nism-owner and some other nissans.
