Bakon's 2nd Gen Build Thread

Howdy folks! I've owned this truck for about 3 years now so I figured it was time to start up a thread for the build on my 2010 Frontier w/ 130k. I spend several months out of the year living on the road in this truck. So with that in mind I took a bit of the overland approach. I've been a heavy duty mechanic for over a decade so all the work on the truck was done by myself (aside from the odd winter oil change) :P

List of mods:


-Pioneer touchscreen head unit
-10" Kicker comp subwoofer
-Hertz speakers all around
-Weather tech floor mats
-Weather tech rain guards
-Hella Sharptone horns

-K&N cold air intake
-Hypertech chip tune
-Aftermarket muffler from Canadian Tire
-A million hose clamps to stop heat shield rattles
-Smittybilt roof basket
-Rhino Rack cross bars
-Chrome bush bar w/ 32" light bar mounted
-Overland bed canopy paint matched / carpet lined
-Aftermarket MUDFLAPS from who knows where
-American Racing Baja 16" rims (would not suggest)
-2" front lift spacer
-1" front wheel spacers
-1.5" rear wheel spacers
-Custom rear leaf pack (2 leafs added to the pack)
-Ride Rite airbags
-VIAIR on board air system
-AGM deep cycle aux battery
-2500w cobra inverter
-100w solar panel and charge controller (amazon special)
-Homemade 7 gal. pressurized solar shower
-Portable hitch mounted vice
-Aftermarket Towing mirrors
-Fully removable in bed sleeper & drawer system

-Painted the chrome grille black (100% regret)
-Removed side steps
-Cut the front wheel well and body all to hell to fit wider wheels


Thats about all I can think of right now aside from the adjustable Bilsteins and SPC arms going in this weekend!

Things that broke or had to be replaced:
-RR leaf spring snapped (due to overextending via bags)
-Driver door panel repair (due to rage)

Thats literally it!

This truck has been great to me and I can only hope that she gives me a lot of good years to come!
