Let's start off with a little about me, if you guys don't mind. I'm currently 25, not married, going to school to be a mechanic, and enjoying it. I love working on vehicles and I love coming up with new ideas on how to do things. As we speak, I'm working on two mods for my truck, one of which has been rattling around in my head for many years already, just waiting to be put to actual use (more details on these when i get to them, I like surprises).

This isn't my first pickup, and this isn't my first Nissan, but it is my first nissan pickup and my first 4x4 ever. In order of all my vehicles, I've had a '96 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera (handmedown from my grandad when I turned 16), then my Xterra


After the X, i got a bike and a Kia Forte Koup. They were fun, but I wanted a truck. So I got rid of them, and found a Tacoma.



Got a job as a delivery driver and couldn't afford gas on the tacoma, so I sold it and got an RSX.


Great on gas mileage, but it never was very durable. About a month or so ago, I bought the frontier!


Planned Mod List:
Shrocks Rear Bumper, Sliders, and Skid Plates
Viair OBA System
ARB Rear Locker
Snorkel
4x4parts Deluxe Suspension Package (3" lift)
and some 32x11.5-x15 BFG All Terrains

Thats just to start. I'd like to get a lot of smaller mods and a few bigger ones in there at some point as well!

Been a long time since I posted a hint to this website, and a lot has happened, so I thought I'd drop in and say hi!

Gotten further into my schooling, got engaged, lined up a job for when I'm out of school starting this summer, bought another frontier and another motorcycle.

Back in October, I came across a silver 2002 frontier king cab 2wd with a five speed and a four banger. The engine had skipped timing and the guy had it listed for $1200. I went and looked at it, talked him down to $700, and took it home! About two weeks before Thanksgiving, I found a junkyard engine and bought it for another $500, took it home, swapped it in, and I've been driving it for better gas ever since (also I haven't been able to drive my 4x4 for legal reasons). Bought a crotch rocket back in July, and I'm about to sell it this week for some extra cash. Gonna post the silver frontier for sale soon as well.






Still haven't really done much as far as mods go to either, with the exception of changing CD players in both and putting my cb in my 4x4. But I have a few in mind that I'll be doing in the near future once I sell these other two vehicles, starting with a Shrocks bumper and a 3" SL. Roof rack may be close after that!

No I have had the same problem. I'm working off my phone, so I just upload straight to the site using the Tapatalk app. Looking forward to the build more.

Sounds good I'll try that.

Been a while since I last posted, and in that year, I haven't really done a whole lot to my truck. Been busy with my family, which is a good thing. Once my son gets older and can hang out with me in the garage (he's only a year old now), I'll be able to make more mods to my truck. Right now, I've finished the rood rack system as well as put the roof basket on it. I've installed lights to it as well and even threw the spare tire up there. Looks like a nice expedition vehicle now (minus the 31" tires and factory bumpers, on the mod list, just low on funds atm). Next on my list of things to do, a steeze-style snorkel for my intake system and relocating my toggle switches to the spot between the cup holders and shift boots. I recently relocated the relays and fuses for all my aftermarket stuff (just lights right now) to the passenger side dash where the airbag used to be. Oh! Also, and I'm honestly very proud of this, I've added cruise control to my truck! Not and aftermarket unit, but factory. Found a totaled Xterra in a local PicknPull lot with it and took the steering wheel with buttons, motor under the hood, and control box and wired it up myself in my garage. Also took the electric door locks and plan to install them too.

Pics incoming, as soon as I figure out Tapatalk!
