Looks like a truck should from factory! Longer shocks in the rear will make a huge difference when you get them.

Thanks! Yeah I can deal with the dusting for now. I still have the stock rugged fails and I have little to no hope for them in the snow. I'm keeping the stock wheels as I really like the P4X wheels. Going to plastidip them in the spring. Along with some red caliper paint on the calipers. I'm waiting for a good deal on some 285's to come around.




Looks great! Much improved :)
Thanks man!

Yeah I don't doubt it, I'll be going with some Bils, 5125's once the money is there, or if I can get a used pair with low milage. Always rather help out another member.

Did you use any rtv or silicone to seal off the tube at the axle?

I hear ya. I need to have this done by the run this weekend. And just so you know Jerseyparts has the nipples and pretty much anything else oem youd need. And he works at Cherry Hill Nissan, so he isnt that far either.

I did, thanks good point. How do you like those 5125's? They ride pretty nice? My rear is stiff right now with the 2" blocks.
Yeah I'm kind of hoping for no snow... I'm running rugged fails to and they're terrible at 22k miles. My parents have a "police academy fund" for me since I was a kid in case I had to pay my way through and I'm looking at getting hired somewhere hopefully in the next couple week. Long story short, a portion of the funds may go to tires since I will not be paying for the academy. ;)

Jettylife this is a great build/DIY thread... Its been giving me more ideas thanks! Definitely like your axle breather mod, with as much mud as I drive in at work I really like your placement of the filter compared to others I have seen.

Those rugged Fails are terrible in the snow, I had mine for a week before I got rid of em. I blew a tire at the mine within the first 1000 miles. I got stuck in a snow drift with em the fourth day.

Thanks man! That filter stays super clean up there too. I popped the hose off the breather before winter to check for any pressure build up (indicating a clog or poor air flow) and it was all good. I'll check again in spring. I don't expect any issues. Hopefully I can avoid or prolong the axle seal issues some members experience.
Yeah I can't wait for tires (285's for sure)

My next set is gonna be 285's too!! cooper discover ST MAXX's, I have had great luck with them for the last 52,000, lots of tread left even driving on the mine. Very few chips out of them. I got some flaps from rally armor too, that was a great idea, I'll let ya know how the urethane ones stand up. Thought I'd give em a try cause of all the rocks at work..

greg at prg recommended the 5125's and since my rear shocks have 175k on them i threw these on and they ride perfect even smoother then the front 5100 at max height. I have the 1.5 blocks and it seems to be great so far. I probably could have done one notch down on the 5100's in the front for a smoother ride and less spring "kick" after going over speedbumps or big objects but i'm happy where its at. Good luck with PD gov christie hasn't been so good to us Police/fire.......

I've only got 22k on mine so I'm good for a while. Next Big suspension step for me (pending career opportunities) will be Titan swap I think. Just seems the most bang for the buck and best ride quality/suspension performance combo.
Also thanks, yeah I support Christie and his no BS attitude but he better leave his police & fire alone considering it's what I'm going to do in life.

Probably going to be away for a while.
Just got hired for Atlantic City Police Department as a class 2 officer. I swear in Monday and start the academy Tuesday. I'll be tied up completely for the next 16 weeks.
It's my dream, so it'll be way worth it. Hopefully the new gig will allow for even more mods to the Fronty.
I may stop in from time to time but I'll be focused hard.
See you on the other side!
