Next up, a lift (likely "AllDogs Offroad 3 - 4" Budget Lift Kit - Nissan Frontier" with 2" body lift) and some bronze Cosmis MRII wheels (17x8.0, +15mm, 6x114.3) with 285/70r17 Wranger Duratrac tires. I like the wheel and going with the Duratrac based on reviews and I want a hybrid versus AT or MT. Going for esthetics mainly, and also considering the Level 8 MK6 wheel. Also, not necessarily stuck on the aforementioned tire size. I've seen what not having the mud flaps can to to the paint so I kind of want to keep them, which I understand is limiting. I've spent a lot of time going through builds here, threads, etc. I know I haven't seen nearly everything but this is one of my favorite trucks here. Feedback welcome!

Nice truck man! Really clean.
Thanks man I appreciate it! I'm doing my homework with this and stuff I do to it, rather than just throwing things at it. The more I drive it, the more I like it.

Yellow LED fog lights today. The picture looks crappy but they look great.

Those headlights and fog lights look good.
Thank you Johnieboy. It's amazing how lights can transform the look of a vehicle so drastically. More important than the appearance is the improved visibility. The high beams are the best I've ever had on a vehicle too.

I mentioned bronze previously but thought about it before pulling the trigger and went with these instead. I figured the darker color would look better overall, considered the yellow fogs too. Second package arrives tomorrow and then making an appointment with Discount Tire.

Very light rubbing at full turn. It doesn't sound/seem like a big deal but who wants rubbing? I may address or see if it goes away if I end up lifting.

...and so it begins. FedEx dropped off four of these little beasts today - CT Sounds MESO-6-5. I'm waiting on the box, ordered this one and it's a couple of weeks out. I'm going with CT Sounds speakers for the doors and dash too. For amps I'll be using my JL Audio Slash 1200/1v3 and picking up another 4 channel JL amp. I'm buying a new head unit as well. Likely ordering wiring from Sky High.

I bought Skar EVL 6.5's and a Skar RP-1200.1 on black Friday but decided to go with CT Sounds and my JL amp instead. I'm giving the Skar gear to my son and building a box with him for his car.

The wheels and tires look nice on the truck, but I'm a little curious why go with such an aggressive tire. Is there a lift planned for the future?

Good choice on the wheels. (y) I never really liked stock Pro-4x wheels and those look way better. The yellow fogs look right too.

I can't wait to see how you plan to install those subs...they look huge!

Hey JetBlack, yes I will likely be lifting it in the spring or summer. I mentioned a body lift in my original post but not doing that, and the more I educate myself on the forum, I will probably go with the maximum recommend lift where I will keep at least stock functionality. Meaning, I'd like it lifted but not with spacers and would not do something like the Rough Country 6" where it can't easily be returned to stock, not that I'd plan to.

The reason for the tire is performance in the snow and overall wet conditions. Esthetics is definitely up there too. Any reasons why I shouldn't have? I can hear it a little bit while driving if not listening to music but it's not loud by any means.

Thanks! I read a lot on here and was inspired by a couple of members' trucks with the wheel choice. Being able to keep the flaps was important to me, hence the stock tire size, though the slight offset rubs, but I knew it likely would. My other cars have yellow fogs too, only seemed right that the Frontier got the treatment also, especially to compliment the Morimoto headlights.

I've spent time in Raine's audio post and website as well. I've been into aftermarket car audio since I got my first truck many years ago. I'm excited too like a kid at Christmas, can't wait!

Handsome wheels! Any chance you weighed one sans tire?

I did not, though I still have the boxes and can weigh those, estimate.
Their website did not list the weight, fwiw.

I know this doesn't help but they're not heavy at all, came two to a box. Interesting though that Cosmis doesn't list the weight. I didn't check as I figured they'd be close to or lighter than stock. Stock wheels are usually heavier, in most cases anyway.

You probably already know this but you might be able to do so trimming and/or melt/reshaping of the fender well to alleviate the rubbing.

I'm gonna have to check out raine's info on the stereo. Thanks for the tip on that... (y)

Sorry about that... I clearly overlooked that section. 😁

I'm looking to replace my tires and wheels also. I would love to get a set of Duratrac's but I doubt my truck will ever see much dirt. It's sadly all pavement in my area. :mad: It would be too much tire for my needs unfortunately. Esthetics? Definitely nothing wrong with that. I recently upgraded to Morimoto's and SS3 fog lights. That purchase was for esthetics. :D

Enjoy your truck and have a Merry Christmas 🎄
