Looks good!...I wrote up a how NOT to do a rear u bolt flip....basically says be carefully not to pinch your abs wire...it's an easy ( but pricey) repair.

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

Wheels look great man!
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?

Got a m226 swapped in, 3.54gears, arb front and rear lockers and the lift, and a bunch of other little things.
Oh, nice. A front locker is on the list for me. I've heard the stock rear e-locker holds up pretty decently, so I probably won't touch that for a while.

It's so shiny and clean!! Looks great. I forget what it's like working under my truck and not having chunks of dirt constantly falling in my eyes.

Yeah, you aren't kidding. It was so nice working on this thing over the weekend. I removed all the parts off of my Frontier about three weeks ago, and I practically had to wear safety glasses. Hopefully, I'll be adding some dirt to the chassis next weekend. ;)

Well, installed the IMS, diff breather, and XterraPerformance/DepHep MOLLE panels today. I like the panels, a lot. I'll be putting more pouches on the window panel and I'll be using the hatch panel for tools. I also attempted to install the BDGT tune, but ran into an update issue.

Finished up my CB install today; Uniden 520XL CB, with RoadPro RP-550 antenna. Went a little different route and installed the antenna in the hood channel.
