Damn! Haven't been on the site too much recently, but I feel like it wasn't that long ago your truck looked very different. Well done with it. Looks bad ***

It turned out awesome, Erik. I remember you telling me over the years here about all you were going to do and in my head, I kept saying, "I'd like to see that". Well, now I see it and I freakin love it. You going back to black?

Another short video. Video doesn't do it justice how cool it felt sliding over those dunes like it was nothing.

oh and yes, it will be all black again.

Nice vids. Looks a little stiff. Spring rate too high?

That steering linkage is very interesting.

You might want to look into getting nitrile boots for those open ball joints (spherical rod ends or heim joints). I can't seem to find a good link to a company. But I use to kill those joints on my car till I got a set with boots on them. Looks something like this

Very possible. Took a wild guess for the spring rate. After the springs relax a little we might change them. Thanks for the suggestion!

Thanks man! It took a long time to get it like this. For the time being yes I am daily driving it. As soon as I pay my card back down I am getting a 2nd car so I can retire my truck to just going off road.

Eric, you were supposed to get the second car first so you did not have to borrow one for however many months it took to build that behemoth!

A.K.A. NYTKSHR: 2011 Xterra S. Initial purchase paid off, now just need money to replace the parts I continually break chasing the LV crew around.

Yea right..lol I can barely afford either! My truck would not have survived following Nomad long enough to get the car first.
