My '99 Frontier

Hey guys figured I'd post up some pics of my '99


I absolutely love this truck, it runs great and gets around awesome. I bought it with 170,xxx miles on it. It has had the timing belt replaced once. I am very impressed with this little truck and hope to keep it.

When I first picked it up:


Changed the fluids and got rid of crappy battery hold down somebody rigged up.


I liked the rack the truck came with but it was beat up and had some surface rust on it. I also didnt like how high the bars went. So I chopped them off and boxed them in.


Then stripped the rack down to metal as well as the toolbox, the hit them with some truck bed coating.


The stock wheels were nice but a little beat up, some enamel and they are trasformed.



Silverstar Ultras


I picked up an Aries grill guard locally for pretty cheap.


I wanted to add a better anchor for recovery so I made some shackle mounts



Also made a gun rack for the back.


Nissan stopped making shifter bushings for my truck so I used one from a 240SX.


Didnt like the silver grill guard so I had it powdercoated black. Also added fog lights and LED parking lights.





And doing a little of what I bought the truck for.






Working on a skid plate for the oil pan area.


Also did sway bar end links and ball joints. My plan is to do the timing belt again, put my toyo open country 31x10.5x15's on it and do an intake and exhaust.

sweet. looks like you're having fun tinkering with your new truck. scenery looks awesome.
you're coming up on another timing belt change at 200,000 miles.

pain of discipline.
pain of regret.
take your pick.

Damn, I think your scenic pictures could be used as marketing material for Nissan if they still sold these trucks! Everything you've done to your truck is top notch, it looks like it found a good owner.

Thanks a lot guys! The bed rails are pretty handy, and the toolbox makes it easy to store supplies and gear.

Picked up these Toyo Open Country's used for pretty cheap. Mounted one up and it was tight but fit nicely, debating whether or not to throw them on!
