Looks good. I will probably end up using this kit. Think there are enough clearances to run this with an axle flip?

Yeah probably, there was lots of room for adjustments. You may have to angle the diff brackets down a little

Looks pretty good! I have the hellwig and I would have chose this over it due to price, mounting position (hellwig mounts on the bottom of the axle and washes away the grease quickly) and the fact that you don't have to drill the frame, I hated that. Love the blue too. The only down side I see is non adjustable links but since they are standard type you could likely source longer ones if needed for a lift. Also non adjustable bar either but for half the price its a win.
I wish I knew this was an option when I was looking.

All Pro4X (auto and manual trans) and all 6-sp/V6 Frontiers (whether 4x2 or 4x4) no matter the trim level come w/ the M226 rear diff.

phatB so what difference does the differential/axle make wrt a RSB? Different diameter axle tube or the chunk sticks out farther or?? Any reason a handy person couldn't adapt the Navara RSB to the "inferior" rear axle (aside from the fact that eBay states "out of stock")?

M226: It's the better rear diff that we don't have with the SV.

Mines a SV and has the m226....
I'm not saying it doesn't fit the c200 diff, I just can't confirm that it does.
It is adjustable, you have to set the angle of the u clamps, not as easy as the helwig, but easy enough

I don't see why there would be any difference in mounting between the two unless the axle tubes are different diameter, maybe the u-bolts and clamps they attach to wouldn't fit. That's the only thing I could think of as to why one wouldn't be compatible with the other. I can measure the c200 axle tube diameter and take a pic of the ubolt and clamp if interested

phatB: Yes, I'd like to follow on on the possibility of installing the Navara RSB. I just measured the rear axle tube diameter as 3.0" via dial caliper, on the 2013, SV, CC, V6 auto transmission, RWD Frontier.

from what I understand, you have the c200. Your diff cover has 8 bolts? the m226 has 12.

This is what is "known":

SV AUTOMATIC = c200
PRO4X auto or manual, or any MANUAL TRANSMISSION on SV, etc= M226

Since you have an m226 I assume you have the 6 speed manual transmission then?

Yep, I looked at the differential cover and it has 8 bolts.

Fixed that for ya. 🙃
(Will NEVER understand why Nissan's nomenclature would call the luxury I4 KC trim level 'SV'.)

I plan to order the Navara D40 4x4 RSB and see how it will fit on the RWD C200 rear axle. Wish me luck (its a daily driver)!
