I-wagons frontier

Since this place is WAY friendlier than club frontier seems to be, I'll post this on here (we love vehicles in general right?)
2014 Nissan frontier SV crew cab 4x4. Color is called night armor, similar to the Subaru urban gray metallic. 4.0 automatic, heated seats, backup camera, reverse sonar, hill decent, dual climate control, 12 spoke alloys. Pretty much same money I would have spent on a crosstrek, more features, and more capable. So far I've added OEM splash guards, OEM rain guards, painted front tow hook red, debadged tailgate, done fogs on w/park mod. Have in my possession a OEM xterra "off road lights" switch, but it's a big ordeal to make it work, starting that tomorrow to get everything wired for the Hellas. Measurements taken and sketch made for the mini bar to mount Hellas, and preparing for modifying the rear able vent since it's one way and creates vacuum and wrecks seals. Been a busy week. And in town driving warming it up I get 18mpg, should improve once I start running to auburn and back every day

In my opinion anything that you can't get from Subaru works just fine here xD You're part of the community already, why not post what else you have. Maybe I'll do a post about my '81 E250 I just started working on. http://i.imgur.com/tqCF3pp.jpg

Do it up. I gave up on my Blazer thread because I'm not going to do anything cool to it, just not worth it. Can't remember if I ever did one for my bike but same deal, did a bit initially and called it good

Had to put wrenches on the truck already (not by choice) swaybar endlink didn't have a nut on it. Explains the clunking. Parts department gave me the nut and I put it on nearby with a friends tools, they're lock nuts....so judging by the fact it sounded like that since 16 miles and the threads were all equally rust, I can only assume the nut was never there

Nice pick up! (pun not intended) My dad's got a 2012 frontier pick em up truck. I love driving it, feels very solid and has no issues 35k miles in!

Haha that's crazy. Did you opt to do if yourself just to save time?
yes, it was 4:40 when I got there and hadn't told anyone but the parts guy who said they had the nuts, didn't want a loaner overnight our some huge ordeal.
Caleb it's 4.0 v6 dohc, I assume there's some vvt since everyone has it now. 261 horse and loads of low end torque. I have pictures just need to blur my plate number

I was going to post pics now I'm awake (baby was just up) but my ImageShack app isn't working right. Also plan to build a skid plate with the leftover aluminum from mine and Inskis shenanigans

Normally it's fast, reliable and simple, but last night it wouldn't show and text in the link boxes

I've always used ImageShack without issue, I've rebooted my phone and even reinstalled the app and still no luck

Unless I can offload some stuff and or get overtime maybe not. Magnaflow makes a cat back for 6 something, and there's a group buy going on club frontier for 450, but I can't swing it right now, and I'm not going to cut up the factory system (even though I am capable) for warranty purposes. They do sound good with the Magnaflow, and actually fairly decent stock

Just got on ImageShack I the computer, "free trial ended, upgrade to upload" they can upload my boot up their derriere. Been on there years, not going to start paying when there's other options for free

Still no pictures, haven't had a chance to look at other Droid apps for hosting, but I've gained a bit on the Hella wiring. Built the circuit....Wednesday maybe...don't remember. But the oe switch uses momentary signal, built a copy of what a guy did on club frontier (this space reserved for link or image) used 4 relays and 2 diodes. I'm not am electrical engineer so I don't know how it functions that way, but it does. Ran a (can't remember official name) 2wiresinprotectivecase along the engine harness through the firewall, power coming from an add-a-circuit plugged in the tail light fuse, other wire is signal out to trigger the heavier relay that will actually run the Hellas might buy a relay plug to make that part easier, but so far everything is well hidden and switch will look like putty belongs there. Waiting on a friend to build the bar since I don't have the means at home right now

Nice! I know I suggested it once adjust but definitely check out the Imgur app for photo uploads.

Yeah I need to do something, probably check apps then sign up for that site on the computer

I prefer imgur over photobucket because of how easy it is to choose which version of your image you want to display. Its basically just one letter that changes between resolutions and its easy to remember L for large and M for medium etc.

For example, this is the "main" page: http://imgur.com/iK9M27p

This is full res direct: http://i.imgur.com/iK9M27p.jpg

This is "large": http://i.imgur.com/iK9M27pl.jpg

This is "medium": http://i.imgur.com/iK9M27pm.jpg

"Small": http://i.imgur.com/iK9M27ps.jpg

Also you can register in the app or login with social media.
