  1. 1st Gen Hangout
    its been a long while and a lot of stuff has happened including blowing the engine in the truck, I'm about to embark on an insane engine swap that' probably never been done on a 2004 Nissan frontier. I'm buying a 318 V8 from a 95' dodge ram 1500 and slapping it in where the old vg33e used to be...

    My first ever motor vehicle, and it's a 2001 Frontier XE Crew Cab. 5-Speed Manual model with the VG33E. Here are some pictures! I got the engine detailed for a fee ($150) and replaced the air intake hose next to the air filter housing after purchasing the truck on Craigslist from a single owner...

    Hi everyone, I'm having vibration issues with my 02' Frontier 2wd. While driving at 55 MPH I am having whole car vibrations. Steering wheel, floor, seats, everything is vibrating. I have been replacing parts for the past year and at this point I have replaced: Upper control arms, lower ball...

    Hi everyone, I will be replacing my heater core soon and will have to recover my ac system to do so. How much oil are you supposed to add back to the system when you recharge it? The FSM (HA-68) doesn't call out an amount unless replacing a component. Do you need to add oil in this case or just...

    Recently bought a whole crate motor due to lack of time to rebuild. The Crank and RH Cam gear are not in TDC. Would you loosen Rockers to relieve tension on the valves and then set Crank to TDC then set the cam gear to TDC? I'm new to working on interference motors and would rather have someone...

  7. 1st Gen Hangout
    Hey guys, I am interested in a body lift for my frontier. I have already done a pml with shackles from AC. I have searched everywhere and for some reason they only sell a 2" body lift kit for the crew cab? I can only find the 3" bl for my fronty? Why wouldnt the 2" kit with only the pucks...
  8. 1st Gen Hangout
    I found a set of Gabriel load carrier shocks for a older s10 are just slightly longer than the shocks for a 1st gen, the only difference I found is that the Chevy shocks have ears on the bottom end of the shock instead of a hole ( but it does look like the ears are removable). does anyone think...
  9. 1st Gen Hangout
    I have a 2000 frontier xe and Was wondering if someone can give me the biggest tire and wheel sizes that can fit without cutting. I have stock suspension and two-inch spacers. I've never messed with non-stock tire/wheel sizes as the tires had been replaced a few years ago before I started...

    Has anyone measured the distance between the wheel wells on the 1st Gen short beds? Like, right up on the forward bulkhead? I know the total length (56.4"), but I've never measured the useful space between the wheel wells... I seem to recall hearing 41" at some point, but I'm not sure I trust...

    Hello! I'm new to posting to the forums, even though I've been stalking them from time to time about certain issues. Bough 2004 Frontier SC (4x4, long bed, 4-door) used in 2019, with 119k. I've run into a major issue, and I'm sure some of you may have encountered before. I need to have...
  14. 1st Gen Hangout
    Recently replaced upper ball joints and tie rods with Mevotechs. Ended up getting the vehicle aligned after that. I noticed a slight pull to the left and it’s been bugging me for a few weeks so I went to get it realigned yesterday. Drive it today and now getting some pull to the right side. They...
  15. 1st Gen Hangout
    Hello. Can stock parts like wheels, shocks and bumpers from 05+ fit 1st gen? Or do modifications need to be done? The reason I ask is because Nismo is going to bring out parts for the newer Gens and I would love to be able to buy them and add them to my truck.

    So the short of it is, new to me truck, first 4x4, thought the 4x4 shifter should be in neutral. Had it there for a few months. Decided to read about using the 4wd. Saw that is should not be there. Moved it to 2h for daily. Every once in a while I engage the 4wd and check that the shaft is...
  20. 1st Gen Hangout
    I’m on 4x4 parts and calmini a lot but I don’t see any ways to do more than a 3 inch lift. So I was wondering how you do a 4 or 5 inch lift on a 1st gen frontier (mines a 2002 supercharged long bed crewcab 4wd) what’s everything you need?
