Back when I got her end of August 15 and now...



First mod was the tailgate power lock, I don't have many pics of that one..


The trail took a toll...


Next up I installed an unswitched rear USB charger and cigarette lighter...


with a lighted switch so I could make sure it doesn't drain power...


Next was the trailer connection relocation to rear bumper. I used all stainless hardware.


This weekend, I installed a holster mount...




And today I installed a 4' Firestik antenna....the rest of the system is pending this week....

Got around to installing the actual radio a while back...ran the coax under the console, under the rear seat mats, and through the rear cabin vent to under the box. Power is hooked up to a 12v outlet via a molex connector.

looking good! Love that XDM - I have a 3.8" XDM full size 9mm, might look into a holster mount like that as well!

You made me do a double take. The pistol in the pics is actually mt Bersa UC Pro in 9mm. I do own an XDm as well, so that's creepy.
EDIT: just noticed one of the four pics I took did have the XDm...my bad.

Neither. At high speeds the antenna will "dance" and smack the bedrail cover.
At speed it seems to be at a 35 degree angle to the tailgate, maybe its difference in the spring used?

Just added Shrock diff cover and t-case skid this weekend..

Note on the Radflo Install:
Buy some 14 diameter, 80-90mm long bolts to replace the lower shock bolts. Nissan uses a tapered stock bolt which do play nice (or quietly) with Radflo's two-piece steel bushings. I had the "Radflo-clunk" until swapping these bolts out today. EDIT, still appear to have the Radflo clunk.
