I had a 2007 SE CCSB MT that I bought new on the lot... Built it up nice but decided I needed a longer bed. I got tired of looking for one with a MT so in 2012 I switched to an 08 LE CCLB AT. I also did some mods (more mild that time) but hated driving AT and completed switched field to a 08 Toyota FJ Cruiser in 2015. I like the car, but I missed the frontier a lot. Well, yesterday I became a Frontier owner again, this time a 07 CCLB MT. It has some mods already but I've got to do some work to it (throwout bearing). I look forward to being back with this community, IDing my current mods, and making this truck mine.

I knew there was a reason I became a lifetime member back in 2012.

Welcome back Wet Dog. Just bought my 02 a few months ago, and I am grateful to have found this site. There is so much advice and useful info on here. Sites like this one, are the reason I bought a first generation frontier.

Sorry, I meant 01 frontier. I am currently looking into buying a 02 4x4 and got mixed up. Just got done working my fourth 12 hour shift in a row.

I figured out the mods on this truck (I think):

Shrockworks bumper, radiator skid, transfer case skid, transmission skid, and rear diff cover
Bilstein 5125 rear shocks and OME leaf pack
Adjustable bilsteins up front

It also has a soft tonneau on it that isn't in the best shape but I'll hold onto it for now and see if I can fix it to keep it out of the landfill and looking a little better.

Working on my wish list. It took me forever to sell my TC UCAs and now I'm kicking myself over that! First up is new tires. I'll get wheels if I can find a good deal but wheels aren't all that important to me. The BFGs are near bald, though. I also need to bleed out the brakes and clutch cylinder. Hoping that is all the groan is when I push the clutch. The car dealership ordered me a throwout/clutch kit, though, so I will have that in case that actually is the problem.

I have a few dents I need to pull out. The two biggest ones are easy to access from behind. The smaller ones are a little harder but not impossible (drivers door).

Oh, it also has a short shifter in it, and that thing has got to go ASAP. It's driving me insane.

Here it is

Looks good thus far - nice find. Dents are just well-earned patina on a 4x4. ;)
It has two very faint pin stripes on the bed and my husband was freaking out, saying it has a lot of scratches. I told him he obviously does not remember my old 07, although the silver color on that one did hide imperfections surprisingly well. Given how hard to find this configuration can be, I wasn't going to fuss too much over two light scratches in the clear coat and a few small dents with no bare metal.

You are right, this truck saw some trails, I am sure, but nothing too hard core as the skids don't show any marks. For me, I am happy with anything that is in the same or better condition as the truck I sold. He has delusional expectations of a used 4x4. After so many years of owning Frontiers and hanging out on this forum I am familiar with the common issues with these trucks and this one has none of them, that I have found so far. TBH though, it doesn't quite feel like "mine" yet - the other two had my blood and sweat in them as I built them up, so even if that throw out bearing is bad it will give me a chance to get some grease under my nails and take some ownership in it.

Nice truck! I wish I had held out for LB!

I bought my first 07 from a dealership in Connecticut in April of that year. As it happens, the Carfax shows that this one arrived at a dealership in Connecticut in May, one town over from where I bought mine. If I had held off it could have been mine from the start! However, on the upside the other two gave me a chance to experiment with different lift and accessory options, so now I know what I really want to do with this one. The "long" beds really are nice, in looks and function, though it is certainly a trade off as far as turn radius goes.
