Good looking rig!  It will be good to see that out on the trails.

Price will be kept confidential but I will say if you see the for sale thread anywhere, I paid less than the last price reduction listed.

Im excited about it, I wont do much to it for awhile, its pretty much trail ready as is, my long term goal will be 3 link front and 4 link rear suspension but only money and time will dictate that project.

That's what my Frontier would look like if I ever took it back from my mom and decided it needed to be made into a serious rig ;D

And those are fun to take care of. I have an easier time tearing the old Fronty apart than the X anyway.

Title: Re: Sunny's Fronty

1.5" wheel spacers for the front on order, will be nice to be able to turn full lock.
Title: Re: Sunny's Fronty
Post by: sunny1881 on August 08, 2013, 01:50:27 PM
Front wheel spacers, Air Locker in front diff and Crawler gears are in.

Problem now is I have a blown motor but it goes into surgery this monday for a new remanafactured motor swapped in, then new radiator fan to fix overheating problem and I will be up and running again.

Update... Hitch and brake controller are installed on my new Ram 1500, trailer has been purchased, tie downs, etc... Now to just get the truck out of the shop for oil leaks in new motor (they have to repair of course), then off to another shop for new exhaust pipes, A/C leak repaired and lastly a front end alignment, should hopefully be all set for awhile after this stuff, one thing after another when you have toy rig. No joke this shit adds up quick.

Post by: sunny1881 on February 25, 2014, 08:03:45 PM
Went under construction yesterday for front 3 Link with 14" Radflo Coilovers then hopefully by the end of the year 4 Link rear if not tax time next year. Slowly but surely coming along.

Sits a small amount higher now but not by much, definitely more travel.

3 Link is done, still got to add limit strap and some bumpstops, haven't got to flex it out yet but here are some pics:

Also noticed how much wider my tires got, I went from 15x8 to 15x10 wheels...

Didn't get to completely flex it out but looking pretty good. I few tweaks in the next few days and I will be ready for GONE, although I do have 2 shakedowns prior, hopefully no issues arise then.

Post by: sunny1881 on April 18, 2014, 07:41:17 AM
Yeah I can drive on the street but I do have a lot of body roll. AntiRock sway bar wont work because my steering box is mounted on the outside of the frame(jeeps are inside) so pitman arm is in the way. I could go to full hydro and of course AntiRock would work great but probably not doing that anytime soon, may use a factory sway bar welded to frame with quick disconnect setup but for now I trailer it to trails anyways so Im gonna just wheel it and enjoy for a little while, its been worked on and in shops too much lately, got to enjoy it for awhile first.

Got some last minute mods/maintenance before Moab to finish up:

Trim/cut out bed below new rear fender tubing seen in pics above

Trim/cut and clear tires on front fender and bumper

Front axle bumpstops

New front axle pinion seal (leaking)

Doug Thorley Headers (ordered, install next weekend)

Hmm  ??? what else...?
