2019 CC SV 4X4
Installed some Aries running boards this evening. I was worried about them hanging a little low for when we offroad but they are on the same level as the frame.
Next time just cut the bolts with a Sawzall. That's what I did. Took 5 mins each bolt. Glad you were able to get them out.Next time try MAP gas it is hotter than propane.
I wish I was that lucky. I tried a sawzall first. Destroyed 6 blades and got a little over half way through the first cut. The saw was so hot I could barely hold it. So I gave that up.Next time just cut the bolts with a Sawzall. That's what I did. Took 5 mins each bolt. Glad you were able to get them out.
As for the cam bolts, typically you would adjust the rear bolt so it pushes the rear out and put the front so it pulls the front in. This effectively moves your tire about 1" forward in the wheel opening. Centers the wheel/tire better and allows you to run a size larger tire with little to no rub.
I'm guessing you had the wrong composition blade for the bolts. Or you got the rare unobtanium alloy bolt kit.I wish I was that lucky. I tried a sawzall first. Destroyed 6 blades and got a little over half way through the first cut. The saw was so hot I could barely hold it. So I gave that up.
You could go with an intake manifold space which is rumored to give you 20-25+ horsepower.

I'd hope that fuel economy is a side-effect and not an objective. If you spend, say $300 on a tuner that increases your fuel economy a very optimistic 10%, from say 18mpg to 19.8mpg and gas is $3 a gallon, you'd have to drive 20,000 miles to pay the darn thing off before you begin to start saving money.So can anyone tell me any good upgrades for a 2017 Frontier SV 4x4 to help increase power and fuel economy??

The paint will chip worse than the Plastidip,, sadlyHeading up to the mountains tomorrow morning to run Rollins Pass, which reminded me that I had yet to come up with a way to mount my Rotopax in my bed.
That being said, I rigged up some bungees and additionally secured the Rotopax using my storage tote that contains all of my trail recovery gear and tools:

Also, picked up some paint to paint my grille. I like how it looks with the gunmetal Plastidip I did a couple months ago...but I don't love the durability of it. Looks good from 5 feet away, but up close there are some rock chips starting to peel the plastidip. I'm incredibly OCD so I'm thinking I'll take the plunge and just permanently paint the grille:

Believe me, I'm not a fan of Priuses either. I'd much rather get a Honda Accord hybrid or the new Toyota Corolla hybrid. I consider those the thinking man's Prius since they get nearly the same fuel economy but look like normal cars.quarter million mile car,,,,, if it was free, it still would not be worth being seen in one,,let alone driving one,,, lol
Typically the whole battery doesn't entirely go bad. Individual cells do, and they aren't too difficult to replace. Just time-consuming. If it was my 2nd car, I'd have no problem having it on jack stands for a week or two while diagnosing and replacing the dead cell. Obviously if it was my only car, I'd rather pay the $1500 to have the entire traction battery replaced.my sister has a prius for the commute and loves it. and actually, my dad had one for a few years for the same reason. as long as you don't mind knowing you are going to replace the 1500 dollar battery every 5ish years, you will be good. changing the battery is a whole "nother" deal though as a bunch of the car has to come apart to replace it.
but, after riding in the ones my family members had, I am very impressed by them. they might not look "cool" but when I am paying 10 dollars a month against someone else paying 100 a month in gas, I will take the ugly duckling all day long
