Started the build 8 months ago, bought the Nav brand new 3 years ago this month. Still under warranty :)

Anyway alot of pics between the start of the build and now but heres a few of the first test run last weekend..





















Still alot left in the suspension, but it hasnt been tuned yet and the hydraulics arnt hooked up yet.

Specs..

06 D22 Navara
ZD30 turbo diesel motor
GU patrol Gearbox and transfer
85% reduction gears (thinking about going duals)
4.6 ratios in diffs
Gu patrol diffs front and rear
OPW Race Jacker Coilovers - 14" coilover movement with 14" hydraulic lift
Front and rear ARB airlockers
4 link front and rear
42" iroks


Still to come,
Full hydro steering
Exo cage
Tube tray and front bar
Rear disconnect brakes
probably some other stuff i cant think of.


At the moment im struggling with the exo design as theres no panel in front of the door to follow and the tyre comes almost to the door, hoping someone can point me in the direction of some pics of another D22 with big tyres and an exo.
Need some insperation for the tube bar aswell.

Everyone, please remember this important rule for this section: Chit-chat will not be tolerated in this forum and all non-tech posts (i.e. good job, nice, etc) will be deleted.

You can find this in the sticky at the top of the build sections. Thanks.

xo cage with the 4 doors might be hard. you could do a hybrid xo cage like a lot of the jeep XJ guys do and have your main bars around the front door and the rear pillar. then cut a hole in the roof and drop a tube behind the drivers seat around the C door pillar. then run a bar between the 2 for belts and what not.

Not so much worried about the rear half of the exo. going to have a brace going over the rear door thats removeable, if im doing stuff i need an exo for i wont have passengers in the rear anyway. Its more where the sliders come up and over the wheelarch to the front bar, as theres no panel there to follow and the tyre takes up all the space.

What sort of pics of the front? got heaps.
Hyme joints all round, big mofo's, cant remember the size.
at the front the lowers are triangulated and the arms are solid 2" chromoly,
the uppers are only slightly triangulated oppisite way to the lowers and use solid 2" alloy.

the rear is a reversal of the front, Lowers slightly triangulated and the uppers all the way. Front lowers are the same length as rear uppers and rear lowers same length as front uppers.

No real maths in the link set up, more a suck it and see method as theres bugger all room in there. Just tried to keep the sepperation between links the same.

Forgot to mention on the specs the rear has had a high pinion conversion.

And can anyone point me towards some exod Frontiers?
