Nice! I like the horns... I've been looking for a set of reasonably-priced Firetruck horns myself. Glad to see you using your truck off-road, too. I have my camping axe mounted with my Hi-Lift in the bed (but locked up in my camper shell.) Ran out of room behind the seats with the jumper cables, cargo straps, and hitch. Under the rear seat has my sub, bungee cords, and tire iron.

2011 Frontier CC SV V6- CST Spindles, 2" Deavers, 5125 bils, PRG adjustable shackles, 285/75R16 Falken Wild Peaks, Midland 1001LWX CB radio w/ SH2P4 external speaker and 3' Firestick, N-Fab step bars, Hypertech, AEM DryFlow drop-in filter, custom bed-mounted Hi-Lift jack. Leer 100R cap.

Hoping to build a bumper.

Sorry if this is mentioned somewhere, but how high do you have your shackles adjusted?

Sorry it's taken me a while to respond! I used the second setting from the bottom which lifted the rear roughly 5/8". There are four different heights available. The pic is of the left shackle and was taken from the left side of the vehicle.

I've been thinking of doing the same as you with the Bilstein 5100s at the highest setting and the stock coils. How do you like the ride? I've read that many people get harsh rebound.

The ride is a little stiff, but nothing intolerable. The stories about the harsh rebounds are true. It's because the front end is sitting near the top of the suspension travel so going over things like speed bumps a little fast allows the shocks reach full extension almost instantly. However, I'm happy with it. The 2" of total lift makes a huge difference off-road.
Hope this helps!

The bumper build has commenced!
I finally found some spare time and was able to begin building my custom front bumper. From looking at various pictures I was able to draw out and cut up some cardboard pieces to use as templates. This is turning out to be a bigger project than I had anticipated and it's definitely a learning experience, but it's slowly coming together. I wasn't able to complete it over the weekend. There's still lots of welding to be done and I have to grind all the exterior welds smooth, but that'll have to wait until later. There will be a light hoop and recovery points added.
Lots of pics!!

























Yes, that's rope holding my skid plate up. Don't judge! I'm not done. I also have plans to build a new skid plate.
