Nice tires you got there. Did you have to do melt mod? Im thinkin about gettin these same tires.
No melt mod, these are 265/75R16s so they're not that much bigger than the stock 265/70R16s that were on there. I've had no problem with them at all, absolutely awesome tires. You would probably have to start looking at a melt mod up in the 285/75R16 range.

Lookin good Chris I see yourgetting more use out of them then I did. Keep it up.

You'll be pleased with all that **** man. Are you going to make it to the National meet? I put in a leave request, once it gets approved I'm 100% going to be there.

its funny you asked, I was just looking at that today and considering it and then saw that you were a maybe on there. I need to check the class schedule up here, I'm currently the only instructor lol so if we're running a class during that time then I have to be here. I have the schedule for the whole summer though so I'll check it tmw at work and let you know if I can make it. Hopefully I can though and if so, maybe I can meet somewhere along the way with you and drive up together.

ya dude, if I go I'll definitely get in touch with you and work that out. I dont know what frontyfan will do but he may join in. I had originally not planned on going to this but now that I know both of ya'll are going I'm gonna try and go. The only problem are those classes, if there is one during those dates I'm screwed.

What day are you planning on doing this. I have some things that need done on the X also lowpro light bar needs to be wired up, change out u joints, and change out header gasket and install new magnaflow cats. Saturday is suppose to be nice and we can make a mod day out of it. You have a garage and air tools.

Congrats on the PRG kit! I installed mine last week and I'm really impressed.

I also ordered skids from Hefty a few days before you did. Curious to know when they told you the skids would ship.

I just emailed hefty the other day. They told me that the next batch of skids is in production right now and that my order should ship by the end of this week or beginning of next.

I plan on doing the install on Saturday provided the weather holds. As far as a place to work, no garage, I was just going to work in my driveway. For tools I have pretty standard stuff and a bunch of PB blaster for doing this lift. If you do end up coming up here though I'll work it out so we can do the work at my workplace. Not a garage there either but a pretty big, flat concrete area and an air supply. Not sure on what air tools we have here honestly. What tools were you looking for? Also, if you want, just pm me or email

Update: PRG advanced kit installed, was almost finished last weekend but had to wait on a few parts. Truck is in at Nissan as we speak getting an alignment done and the rubber boot on the steering column replace (punctured it taking out the bolt for the UCA, d'oh!) Love the lift!

Still waiting on my skids from hefty:(
