    Hey there, forgive me but I'm not sure I completely understand you question.

    Which lift kits are you looking at that include new upper and lower control arms?

    If it's a long travel kit then the upper and lower control arms are wider than the stock arms. The kit should still work on a 4wd but you would need longer axle shafts in the front. If the kit only comes with upper control arms then it is probably a standard travel kit that is just going to give an extra inch of down travel.

    As to weather you can cut an upper to fit as a lower? No that would not work. Not at all. But if the kit is not long travel, then the new upper control arm should work perfectly with the factory lower.

    Hey bud, I know you're very knowledgeable on the subject, and in getting different answers from different people. I asked about lower and upper rocker arms for the frontier, but here's the question. Why do pre-runner (2wd) lift kits cone with lower and upper control arms, but 4wd lift kits only supply upper control arms? Can lower control arms be cut to fit on 4wd fronts for support, or is that driver preference in your opinion? Thanks for your time man, please forgive my noobness!

    No body lift, suspension only. And for Plasti dip, the better you clean the wheels the nicer they will come out. Any dirt will cause the dip to bubble. And spray it on thick! I did just under a full can per wheel (front and back). If you want texture then spray the last two or three coats from a few feet above and let it mist down. But that texture is the biggest pain in the @$$ to keep clean. I even gave up on cleaning my wheels now.

    Hey Nate, Huge fan of your truck, I just bought a frontier and am interested in plasti dipping my wheels. Any tips or instructions on how you did it? Also I'm pretty new to the whole truck thing and love your lift. Did you do a body lift and a suspension lift?

    Hey wondering what size light bars on the roof? I measured my roof and its 45" and yours seems to go from side to side with no over hang or under hang.. 40" or 50"? I see its a single row

    so how exactly do I go about changing it? I just want it to say "Nomad's Build", nothing fancy. Having enough trouble just doing this remedial stuff : /
    I've tried several things, none of which work. When I try to just highlight it and change the name it inactivates the link and when I try to right click it I don't get an option to re-name it.
    I'm on a mac btw.

    so when I paste that part in my sig I can right click or double click it and re-name it? I'll give it a shot and see what happens
