Looks good man. Ever thought about painting your whole grille black? Did you ever get your bodylift off? I ended up just loosening the Radiator, shortening the hoses and removing my fan shroud.
I have not thought of doing that. Its been neon green, camo, white... Ive always painted it to match my accessories. Blackout would be nice. I have not had time to do anything to it this spring. Tomorrow i part with it for 2 1/2 more weeks; then its on.

Were do you get the fenders from and do they just bolt on like the OEM fenders do? Do the standard rims fit onto the titan swap ok?

In some of the pictures i do have 1.5" spacers in the front but have removed them. Adding 12.5" wide tires and the offset of Procomp rims increased my front end width to fit the 6" bulge fenders.

I have to say that is a SICKEST looking truck i have seen on this site. Were do you get the fenders from and do they just bolt on like the OEM fenders do? Do the standard rims fit onto the titan swap ok?
Thank you! The fenders are from Hanneman fiberglass in southern California. They do not bolt on. You will have to trim and drill your own holes in the fiberglass to fit them up right. Fiberglass body panels are a PITA and take many modifications. As long as you keep the frontier hubs and spindles; any rim that works without the titan swap will work with it.

Thanks Beef. Getting the armor fitted back up is my next goal. Pictures with my phone suck. I did some custom graphics on the back panel because the paint was real shoddy from the winter. I think it looks dank in real life. Its more of a blood red over a semigloss black.

Did you cover up certain spots or fling paint at it? The McNeil looks great.
Its a very long and complicated process.
1.I painted the fenders black in the middle of winter without doing any prep work.
2. The paint began peeling off and chipping where rocks were thrown up.
3. used pressure washer to get all weak black paint off
4. sprayed over fenders with metallic red so that everywhere black paint was missing would appear red.
