This is really clean. I'm gonna use it as a reference.

How do you like your ARB light knockoffs?

Hey @Ripper,
How do you find the 3.69 gears with the auto?
A buddy of mine upgraded his 3.69 r180 to an m205 and told me I could have it. So, I then sourced a 3.69 m226.
From what we can tell, it will be a tremendous upgrade from the 3.13s that I was use to.

We'll see how it goes - should have the new axle and diff installed in the next few weeks.

They are phenomenal, a tad too bright at 225w though.

3.69 AT and 33s are the perfect gear/tire combo for a daily driver.

@Ripper,

Truck looks rad. Question; what vent visors are those?

I am guessing that on the second rig you know what you want.
must be nice to do the upgrades knowing that instead of the first rig where most of us had some intermittent mods that did not last long or did not solve a problem.

Factory Nissan. IMHO They are the best looking, and provide the most amount of coverage. They allow you to roll the window down pretty far whilst keep the weather out.

It has helped tremendously, not to mention I’m able to put this one together in a much cleaner fashion.

A bit of an update with some pics. Gotta be honest, not super motivated to make one of these.


Placement of compressor. Note the holes cut for air flow. Compressor was placed with fans facing the cut outs.


ARB Braided supply line to the air chuck.


Running the line


ARB bracket, and coupling for final placement.


Snorkel install. Kind of a pain in the ass when you lose all the fasteners and bracket.


RiceL cutting the fenders.
