  • PitSnipe (Kyle): Wow, I have not heard of this issue. 15 hour job for a $50 part is nuts. Hopefully someone that knows of this issue will speak up.

  • downs44: Got an 06 that just went through SMOD. Got everything replaced. Now my low oil pressure light is flickering on after the engine warms up and the truck is at idle. Doing some digging on the forums it looks like a common problem is the rear timing cover gallery gasket leaking and causes the symptoms. Looks like a 15 hour or so repair for a $50 part. Was wondering if anyone else has had this issue and any words of advise. To save some dialogue, the oil pressure sensor is about a year old and I changed the oil and filter after i noticed the light and that did not fix the issue.

Swapping out bumpers
« on: December 13, 2013, 04:03:20 PM »
Hi you guys, I'm going to be purchasing a Calmini (he thinks) front bumper with a rock slider plate underneath from NoSup4U.  A picture of the bumper is located on this thread: http://www.azxterraclub.com/forum/index.php?topic=1417.msg12716#msg12716

And I was wondering if anyone can give me some hints on what tools I should definitely get to make things a little bit easier when taking off my stock bumper and putting this new one on.  We both really don't have much experience (practically 0 experience) on modding and even though he said he's going to have a friend who will know quite a bit there, I'd still like some information and assistance from the forum on what I should get, and maybe some things to watch out for, and just ANY kind of information or link on how to get this off and on before I head over there.

This fits an 01' and that's what I have.

Also, I was going to get new screws for the stock rock protection underneath (when I went the group to Sedona, we went over a nasty part and scraped the plate and a couple of screws came out lol) but since I'm getting the new one with the bumper, might as well not.

A good ratchet wrench set is a must.
A breaker bar is useful for stubborn nuts. Have some WD-40 or PB Blaster if they are really stubborn.
Also at least two people is required. However, 3 people makes things easier.
Jack stands can also be useful for supporting it sometimes too.
Some long as well as stubby phillips and flat head screw drivers might be needed as well for plastic clips and stuff.

EDIT: I don't know how the 2000-2001 truck is, but on the 2002-2004 trucks the plastic tabs that hold the bumper cover on break very easily, so having zip-ties on hand to use if any break is something to consider.

Good information there, ty.
I'll probably get another ratchet wrench set and a breaker bar....I just bought my tool box set from Sears and it was just a starter in case something happened where I need it.

I also have stands and zip ties so I'm good there, and I'll look at getting the other things tonight.  I'm sure there are some stubborn nuts in there so unless it's pretty expensive to buy (which I looked up and it doesn't really seem to be) I'll get one.

If anyone else has any suggestions, I'd appreciate it :)

Also, The stock bumper is all metric bolts.

I don't know if Calmini stuck with that or went to SAE. So you should probably bring both sets, just in case.

If you were in phoenix I'd be glad to give you a hand, new bumper is maybe an hour install.  Some ratchets, a good jack to give you a hand.  Should be done in no time.

:)  Thanks Hammer.  I'm going to have to find a new jack.  The one I bought a while ago, I thought would be able to lift it up enough to get a stand under it, but it BARELY even lifted it (tires didn't get off the ground) so I'm going to have to find a better one with more height capability.  Those are going to be EXPENSIVE considering I want a hydraulic jack.  The one I was talking about was like $60+ lol

But I'll have to see when I get my Xterra back :(
