how are the stealth wheels holding up? any fading
They are holding up incredibly well. I didn't expect them to take the winter and off roading so well.

I actually have a photo I took of one just 3 weeks ago to show how it's "holding up."

I think it looks pretty damn good after 6 months!

whoa STILL don't have 4wd??????
Nope, I can't afford to get it fixed since Nissan screwed me on my extended warranty. I don't have much choice but to wait till I can afford it. If anyone has a better suggestion I am all ears.

How bout buying a used R180 front diff from someone who did a Titan swap. I know your replacing crap with crap but at least youll be able to wheel in 4 wheel dive. There have been quite a few peeps now that have done Titan swaps so try asking around here or the fronty boards. Or just titan swap it once the funds roll through.

What's the approximate cost on the Titan Swap. Greg from PRG wants me to Titan Swap too. He said he was willing to find me the parts and help me out.

I am already planning to buy a used or new front diff in May if nothing else presents itself.

Im not sure on the Approx cost, but I think it would only make sense to upgrade to the Titan front Diff. I say definitely have Greg find you the stuff to do it!

Check out OregonX's build in the projects forum. I think he sourced a few of his parts from the junkyard and the others from PRG. Hell id ask him if hes selling his old R180 if you wanted a cheap way out. You never know. But yeah the Titan swap is definitely the way to go. Your killing two birds with one stone on that one.

One of my favorite Gen2 X', great buildup!
Thanks, have been working hard to keep it a clean build and want to keep improving its ability.

Also, I am researching the Titan Swap and will update whether or not I'll do it.
