Yeah, I think I came across that thread when I was researching the mod. This blue is one of my favorite OEM colors.

Thanks, they're one of my overall favorite styles for any car.

Well, I got the OME leaves on Thursday. The leaves, u-bolt flip kit, Bilstein 5100s, Nisstec coilovers, and SPC UCAs got installed today. The front and rear struts and the UCAs came off of my Frontier, so that's why they look a little worn. They've been through one winter here in North Dakota. I'm still waiting for the Xterra Performance MOLLE panels. This weekend or next, I'll be throwing on the IMS and installing the Bully Dog tune. I also need to install my breather vent before I head to Gilbert, MN two weeks from now.

I also just found out last week that I'll be moving to the High Desert of SoCal, so I'll probably be looking around on this forum for some wheelin' events. The mods will pause for a little bit, until I get settled after the move.

I also did the SPC UCA's, i read afterwards to trim the Coil bucket, i have not done so but i highly recommend you do cause i had to order new boots for the ball joints cause both had tears in them sucks good thing new boots are only 6 bucks but still. I plan on grinding my coil bucket back soon. you may be alright though since you've got those sweet coil overs and not a spacer lift like me. Rig looks awesome as usual.

Yeah, I had to trim a little on my Frontier. I was in a time crunch yesterday, so I didn't get to it. It looks like they will barely hit only at full droop, so I'll call it good for now.

Yeah, I should be ready. I just need to get that breather mod put on before I head up there. What are you getting done at Iron Rock?
