About the rear SOA, will you have to move the axle forward and/or modify the driveline angle

It will need a new drive shaft for the rear, but we don't expect to move the axle. I will let you know for sure when we are working on the SOA.

Crap there goes next years tax return!

Good luck and keep up very updated with pictures if you could. Something else that would be cool is a daily log, or journal, that you could post. This would show people how much work it is, and what are typical problems on this type of swap. It is just a thought.

What a day, just got back from the junkyard. Im a proud owner of a dana 44 ford 79 bronco axle! Thanks to some nissan owners, we got it pulled off today, and got a sweet deal. And we also found out the X should be able to run 15 inch wheels now.

I will be running 35s. I was aiming for 36-37 inch, but the rear axle can't be regeared until Nismo comes out with something. So since im staying with stock gears, I will stay at 35s.

Great. I'm waiting anxiously you for you to get the install done. If it works out then I'm going to get myself a donor axle and start working on getting the needed parts. :D

Jordan, what is the approximate cost of the parts so far, and what is the projected total cost of the project at this point? ( with separate costs for parts and labor if you are paying Allphase for the install. )
