I thought I was on this forum before but I guess I just snooped around a lot to get info over the years. Haha
Anyways, I'm A.J. I just sold my 2000 Nissan Frontier 4x4 (Boris) and got a 2009 4x4.
I'm trying to learn as much as possible about the new truck as possible and figure out what I want to do to get it sitting the way I want. Basically I want it to be pretty similar to the old one. A little lift, BFG A/T tires which I was really pleased with and maybe a camper shell. I loved my truck and only sold it to get something newer.

Welcome to the forum, doesn't the long bed have a nicer ride? Much more stable on the road.

The things I notice most about the long bed are that I don't have to struggle to fit my bike in there also pulling into parking spaces or making U-turns requires a little more premeditation.

This is how I carry mine. Made a mount to work in the utili track.

Thats a sweet setup. My primary bikes are my 26" BMX and my single speed road bike (no quick releases). With a little effort I could get them (one at a time) in the back of the old truck and lock the camper shell without removing the front wheel. It didn't really matter that they weren't physically secured to anything because there wasn't enough room to slide around once they were wedged in. Haha

*Do you have a picture of the mount you made?

I actually just bought a $10 clamp off eBay and made the blocks for the track. I will get a picture of it today.

Long beds FTW! Taking wheels off bikes is for envious shortbed owners! :laugh: Welcome back to the Club.


Even with a long bed I love how solid this mounts my bike. With the bed extender I can fit it in without taking the front wheel off, but locking the front wheel in the cab deters theft as well. By the way, this is my road bike.

^ i can put a rack on my roof. I can securely put my bike in my bed lying down, no need to remove wheels and crank on my forks, with gear in me bed locked inside my canopy on a LWB. But it's cute to see short bed users try to compensate. :laugh:
