yes - the stock LE step ripped off and jammed up into the wheel well. Ironically, I was going to take them off that morning but didn't have a deep 12mm socket. I was going to go to the store to buy one when I got called to go wheeling instead. Also more ironic was that I blew off installing my sliders that day to go wheeling.

Trail gear does not make their sliders for the Nissan, but they will fit on certain models. They are built for Tacomas, but that doesn't matter..the length is what matters. So the trail gear sliders may say they made for Tacoma's but that doesn't mean they won't fit your Nissan. Many people on this forum are running Trail Gear sliders.

nat has your answer above. i ordered the trail gear sliders for a 'yota and then cut and welded to fit the way i wanted them. i made my bolt-on, but it wasn't easy because of the long box. I ended up actually welding a few nuts into the frame.

if you don't have a welder or cutting tools then this is not a project for you. Everywhere you go will want $400 for pre-fabbed sliders, so the Shrocks are as good of a choice as any.

Thanks man. It gets me where I need to go - up the mountains. Just wish there was a posi for the C200.

Finally got around to installing my Ride Rite air bags I have had sitting in the garage half the year. Just in time to add sand bags for winter. I should have installed these years ago, they really smooth out the ride after adding the Deaver AAL lift springs.



And my damaged bumper made it easy to mount the filler

Well, there is some rust starting to show up on the front Radflo coil-overs - but I must admit that the rust is a lot more minimal than I expected. I just recently started spraying them with Boeshield T-9 to help slow down the process, we'll see that product works.

I had the frame and underbody heavily undercoated when I bought the truck, and I spray the diff and other areas every year with Tremclad (or Rustoleam in the US) to try to keep the rust at bay - you can see in the airbag pics what it looks like after one year.

Added some CREE LED light bulbs - bought them off ebay from China. Wanted the Lifetime bulbs, but they wouldn't ship to Canada without using UPS. Anyways, the install was really easy - no cutting, no trimming. I took the intake out to clean it, I think that took the longest of the whole procedure. The light output is excellent for low beams. I'm wondering how long they will last, as I have DRL that are always on, even with just the park lights switched on.

The product box - was well packaged and shipped with no damage.



The bulbs fit in easily enough and the retention ring twisted with no issues and no cutting/trimming



The fan just screws onto the back of the bulb



Went to a pitch black road



DRL



Low beams - I'm 50' from the rope and blocks



Low beams and fogs - fogs have 3000k HID bulbs



The high beams are pretty useless as high beams - unless you hunt squirrels
