i picked up an 01 frontier that i absolutely love. But after a month of driving her around shes gonna need some suspension work before i really want to show her much off road time. I was looking into a few different lifts. That FAQ section helped me so much to see whats available for the frontier. I just wanted to see what kind of input i can get on what to do first and what kits seem to work best on and off road. The truck is a v6 4x4. Thanks so much for any help i get.

on a side note if anybody is thinking about selling some armor for a first gen, you should definetly hit me up.

what are you planning on doing, i have a V6 4x4 and i hunt like crazy and go down some pretty nasty trails and i go on the beach in the summer and have no problems at stock ride height. just get some good 31inch all terrain or mud tires

im planning on doing mostly mudding and playing in snow. Also some runs to the desert when im back home. My wheels dont allow for bigger than 30s and thats a big reason why i want to get a lift. Chains barely fit on the front and only if i want to go straight. They rub on the fenders if i turn the wheels

You could crank the torsion bars a few inches in the front and add shackles or an add a leaf pack in the rear for a cheap way to lift your truck a few inches. Or you could add a body lift if you wanted to keep the stock height and just fit bigger tires. Or you could just go ahead and get a suspension lift which will be close to $1k.

what size wheels do you have?....if you are going to lift i would do a pml (torsion bar crank and shackles) or a suspension lift...body lifts look horrible and dont give you many benefits

i think i just am going to do the t bar crank and then if its not enough i'll cough up some cash for a suspension lift after that.

did you mean what tire size i am running? because im running a 16 inch wheel and the tires 30's. but the offset on the wheels isint the same as stock so they don't fit brilliantly under the fenders.
