    My 2016 frontier build and adventure thread!

    I’ve had both. Both sizes are fine. The 265s will fill the wheel well better, personal preference I guess. There was a noticeable weight difference while driving after going from 235 to 265, I went from cooper at3 in 235 to ko2s in 265 both e load. There was a sluggishness when I drove off from...

    Comparison shopping: Colorado, Gladiator, Tacoma

    I honestly think the frontier is a solid contender for these purposes. Tested platform, actual motor that produces more than enough torque below 1700rpms and not pulled from a minivan, plenty of repair parts, fully boxed frame and disc brakes (Toyota doesn’t provide either of these), won’t be...

    Aggrocrag's 2011(Now 2014) Pro-4x

    I know this is kind of an older post but you have any details on how you built your platform? I like how you used the tracks on the bed floor for your vertical support, are they pretty snug is there or is there any play? Thanks

    My 2016 frontier build and adventure thread!

    I ran cooper at3 in 235/85r16 for 50k on my 17’ pro4x. I like them a lot and the drove perfectly fine until I installed my lift and had Nissan do an alignment. After they did the “alignment” (my lower control arms apparently seized bushings and they couldn’t install the cam bolts without cutting...

In addition to the leaf packs, it also comes with an add a leaf in order to increase load capacity similar to ome hd, the pack is military wrapped on one end and are made in the states...

    E.J.'s Dirty Nismo 2005 Frontier CC Build Thread/Journal

    I hope your new Tacoma turns out as good as your frontier did. What’s your plan for the frontier? Did you sell it, trade or keeping it?

    Any ranger builds?

    Have any of the new ranger owners started adding any items yet? Is there any market yet? I know arb had products for the row ranger but, I haven’t seen much in the us yet.

    Titan swap vs ome vs Nisstec extended travel kit

    I’m looking for opinions on the three variants of lifting above. I have read a lot of forums and other resources on the subject but, I would like some real world takes on the three. Is the titan swap with a m205 swap worth the hassle if it’s for dd and camping? I’m more interested in the m205...

    Nissan builds a frontier

    The smod and timing chain issues were resolved by Nissan, in 2009. What would of been really cool would have been if they had just done a titan swap, straight of the gate, a vk56 motor(with a six speed manual trans) and the m205 front diff. That would be a great factory build. I hope a lot of...

    Aftermarket skid plates or stock?

    I’m in central North Carolina, not super rocky. The closest area to truly test skid plate durability is at Uwharrie national forest. There is a dedicated off road trail system them the runs the gambit of difficulty. Most sections I could run aren’t that rocky, my biggest concern are the gaps in...

    Aftermarket skid plates or stock?

    Quick question for everyone. Did you get a full kit of aftermarket skid plates for your second gen frontier or xterra or did you keep the stock ones in place? I just ordered a set of hefty fab sliders but, after doing more reading on the subject and crawling under my truck it looks like there...

    Kootenay's Pro4X Frontier

    Do you have any picture of the seat and what year titan fits? Did you have to do any mods to the titan seats to fit them?
