tito21;

Welcome to the group!

Those were really nice pictures but exceeded our screen width, (640 wide) plus they were posted horizontally. Pictures should be stacked vertically so one only has to scroll vertically to see all the pictures.

Forum Rules and Information

(WIDE POSTINGS and PICTURES)

Pic Uploading. Uploading of pics will be in good taste and beneficial to the overall purpose of the forums. However various pics will be allowed in the General (Non-Frontier Related) discussion forum as long as they are in good taste and do not violate any one of the other mentioned rules.

Wide Messages. If you post a message that breaks the sites width limit your post will be deleted or edit. If you have to put the wide text in a text file and post that with your message.

It would be nice if you would resize your photos and post them again.

Thanks... lakota...

hello, i have a 05 2WD Crew cab LE frontier, with 3" custom lift kit and 2" body lift with 285-70-R17 BFG MT'S with 1" wheel spacers.

I want to convert it to 4x4, already I bought the rear axel with locker and the front diff and axels (from a 05 nismo). I don't know the stock gear ratio on them, does any body does?

too, I want to know each part that I need to make the transformation, I don't know if my actual spindles will work with the axel.

I want that the 4WD system works like the original equipment, is this possible?

I'll appreciate any comment.

 

thank you

the dealership will have the gear ratio info, spindles won't work, and
there is a lot of electronic gear you'll need to acquire to make it all work
(automatic hubs, electric rear locker, instrument panel indicators,
differetn shocks, different springs front and rear, transfer case electric
selector knob, diff lick selector button, transfer case, front and rear drive
shafts, etc.) Basically, if you really want the OEM operation, it would have
been cheaper to just buy the NISMO edition. On a side note, I would
spend my money on manual hubs rather than the hyper-expensive auto.
I have run both and I far prefer the manual hubs. They are stronger,
more eliable, way cheaper, rebuildable, and you can shift into and out of
4x4 at any speed. UNfortunatley, if you use the actual Nissan rear axle,
you will have to use the Nissan locker too.
Good luck ,ahve fun and keep it dirty side down.

check back further in the posts, there are others with the same questions as
you. But good news, the there is a new 6" lift from Fabtech. It'll clear 35's
sans trimming. The 5" lift from Calmini requires a "little" fender trimming
up front to clear 33's. Now what exactly "little" means and where to do it I
have no idea. AC offers several ways to lift it up, a little bit (max 3"), usually
a level kit only. They offer new coils, spacers, blocks, shackles, new spring
pacs, overloads etc. Rancho also offers their new quicklift system for the
front (level kit only). Basically every company out there has the leveling kit
for your truck. But to actually level AND lift is another story. from what i
can tell it'll end up being a matter of combining kits from various sources to
get the perfect results. No one offers the total package. So far we are fairly
neglected in the aftermarket world.

I am looking to put an exhaust on my 2008 frontier crew cab. Since it is hard to find 08 performance parts. i was wondering if the 07 exhaust would fit the 08 or is the suspension different?
Thanks Mike

Thanks to So Cal Super Trucks.com  check them out if you are located in Southern California. Will update you on performance of new setup

They can fabricate brackets to make a suspension kit for you. Was very hard to find an actualy suspension kit out there for the fronty, nothing but drop bracket systems and leveling kits.

trevorg8, what did you do to get your mid travel susp?  I also had an issue recently.  I just put on a new set of mud tires of the OEM size.  Yet my mileage has dropped cinsiderably.  Has anyone else run into this issue?  I find it hard to believe that a mild increase in rolling weight would hurt my mileage this bad.  Am I alone here?

 Not quite sure why you lost so much MPG. I went up in tire size and lost only 1-1.5 mpg. That could also be due to the difference in the spedo. Relly agressive lugs on those mudders I assume. Could be a drastic increase in road friction. What psi u runnin'? Mabye go up a few psi and see if you get a difference.
