Welp, it happened. My baby got punched in the face. Being how sweet she has been to me, I couldn't let her go. Since I needed her back in my life asap, I found a parts truck and gave her a nose job.

Year: 2004
Make: Nissan
Model: Frontier XE
Trim: 2x4 5spd

Here's a picture of the donor truck. 2003 v6 2x4. I'm not sure what the kid was trying to do when he was fixing it but he gave up and sold it to me dirt cheap. Only stipulation was that I have to return and motor and tranny.

I bought the truck bc I found the major item I needed to fix. It was the frame rails past the radiator support. Other than the frame rails, i needed to replace the air condensor, radiator support, radiator, fendors, hood, and windshield.

Okay, motor and tranny out and returned. Also grabbed all the parts that I needed for the nose job. Drilled the spot welds out of donor trucks radiator support.

So now on to the fun stuff. Cutting the frame rails off.

I did a quick spot weld to mock everything up (by I, I mean someone else who welds).

Since everything fit oh so snugly, I proceeded with installing the radiator support and other components.

Spot welded my radiator support in. ::wink::

If anyone is interested I have a parts truck for sale. Suspension looks fresh too! Hard to tell in photo, but she's brand new under there. I'll post in classified section in a couple days.
