Ok so i had alittle time today and lowered the front. Ive got the front sitting on the bumpstops. But im pretty sure im going to cut them off cause i dont feel like back surgery when i get older. I tried to lower the back but i didnt have jackstands. So by next weekend i should have the back done also. But for a question does the front look uneven or is it just how the ground is because its not level. Another thing it doesnt look like it has negative camber would turning them bars down have made it get neg camber??????????

My future mini trucker making sure dads doing things right

http://infamousnissan.com/forum/picture.php?albumid=144&pictureid=955

I got the jackstand stuck because i lowered it to much lmao lol. And no thats not engine oil thats just alittle to much wd 40

http://infamousnissan.com/forum/picture.php?albumid=144&pictureid=956

And heres a side view of the the finished product. It seems to be like it didnt get any negative camber when i lowered it. Is this normal or what????????

http://infamousnissan.com/forum/picture.php?albumid=144&pictureid=957

Heres a front view is it uneven or is it just because im sitting on unlevel ground??? I couldnt measure from the fender to the ground because as you can see i did this shit in the dirt hardcore style

Oh yea you should jack it up and it would make it a little bit better on turning the bars. Also if you let them all the way out it should be even.

jimmy726
11-03-2008, 12:22 AM
Actually scr8pnhard thanks to you i am a infamous nissan member now. You showed me this site and its way better than stupid ass hotridesmag. Also i had the front up and it was easier but when i let it down to see if it was level i got my jack stuck so i just did it the hard way from there on.

11-10-2008, 01:19 AM
WTF GODDAM im fucking pissed everyone!!!!!!!! I was installing 3" blocks yesterday and i pulled the middle leaf also. Well come to find out my springs are way wore out and my axle was hitting the hell out of my frame. So i took everything back apart and add the middle back in to keep my springs from relaxing so much. WELL I CANt GET MY FUCKING AXLE TO SIT BACK DOWN ON THE BLOCK PINS. WTF do i need to take the driveshaft off of the rearend to make these fucking pins line up. Its like the axle is twisted up and then one side is cocked back. IM FUCKING PISSED. I didnt have this fucking problem with my mazda i had back in the day. SOMEONE please help me out. I am without a vehicle and i have to get back on the road asap

sparkinframe
11-10-2008, 01:23 AM
just gotta fuck with it, try putting anouther jack on the part of the axel where the driveshaft connects. or get a buddy to help move the axel around.

im bad at explaining, but i hope this helps.

you gotta force it. the axle tends to move around while youre working, so you have to forcibly align it. channel your anger into moving the axle by hand, or find some large pry bars and pry it into place. once you get one side, sling a u bolt on it finger tight so it doesnt pop loose while you wrestle the other side.

jimmy726
11-10-2008, 01:26 AM
I fucking tried everything push pull beat pried. Like i said to i need to disconnect the driveshaft from the rearend. Set the block and then set the axle on top of them bolt the shit and then put the drive line back on.

hrdfrntr95
11-10-2008, 02:23 AM
your going about it the hard way if you remove the drive shaft.......but i guess its only 4 bolts......the axels are a pain in the ass to get to relocate on the pins it just takes some forcing and theyll go.......to make it easier on me i just undone both sides and then it went alot easier............alot of people dont like doing that but it helps

Just take your time with the motor, double check things, label parts, and don't rush and get giddy when it starts taking shape. Motors are not that complicated, but they can be when you get frustrated. Truck looks good keep up the good work!

Not right now but i am going to a junkyard tomorrow and getting a set of 4x4 fenders, and i have to flare the back alittle bit. But then they will dam sure tuck no problem

cool. I have to flare the bedsides on mine so my 18's will tuck in back. I already have the 4x4 fenders.

Im just wondering how to flare the bed sides????? i want it to look good and not have just one spot that is pushed out

xmb63
11-24-2008, 05:30 PM
What i did to mine was cut the inside fender so you can pull the fender out. Then i welded 3/8" rod to the inside lip of the fender this helped it hold its shape when i pulled it out. Then I welded suports the the 3/8 rod to hold it in place.

Just read through your thread man. The truck is coming along and looking nice. Keep the work going and keep us posted for sure.


Just one thing that I would like to address, that was said in this thread.
Actually scr8pnhard thanks to you i am a infamous nissan member now. You showed me this site and its way better than stupid ass hotridesmag.
There is no need to degrade another site here. All Lee and Goat did was to expand there coverage site into a place like myspace but for the scene only. To compare that to a forum is like comparing apples and oranges. Obviously there seems to be good coming out of their efforts. If the goal is to unite the scene. Then in a round about way that is working...You met scr8pnhard there, and in return he turned you on to a nissan specific site. The way I see it, bitch and moan as much as you want about myspace, yahoo, aol,or any corporate bs that you want to...but as for anyone that is trying to help support and or provide a service to the scene... I gotta give the decency of not belittling those efforts.

jimmy726
11-24-2008, 11:54 PM
I said that because i liked the website but the people on there werent the greatest. Maybe i shouldnt have knocked the website. But the people that were on there arent so nice and friendly. Its not like here were someone like me has a $200 beater truck throws some rims on it cranks there torsions, throw some blocks on and everyone compliments you. The people that are on here are great. It wasnt like that over there you try to ask someone something and they dont have the time of day. Like i said the dude has a nice site but some of the people on there are stuck up.

HybridImages
11-25-2008, 12:10 AM
I get what your saying man. Everyone is entitled to have there opinion but not good to have bashing going on. I know Lee and Goat and they have always been hospitable to me and we speak every show when we are there. As for here man, I dunno it must be a Nissan brother hood thing. Folks have always been willing to jump in to help and encourage. The way I see it everyone has to start somewhere, you can't just stick your nose up. Without sharing, how is anyone ever suppose to learn.

***back on topic :your truck*** Dude you must be shitting 200 bones. Bet that's the best 200 you ever spent.


There is also the board and scissor jack method to flaring your bed sides.

jimmy726
11-25-2008, 02:01 AM

12-06-2008, 02:04 AM
Here is a pic of my 4x4 fenders i bought a couple of weeks ago. I havent had time to put them on yet tho. I had to repair alittle rust on the bottom corner as yall can see. I have a hard time convinsing myself these are 4x4 fenders because there isnt much of a difference. But as far as i can tell they are.

12-12-2008, 11:08 PM
So everyone i heres my valve cover. Im alittle pissed because the owner of the mechanic shop got spray happy and painted everything. but i guess ill be ok. Im defiantly pissed about it. Hopefully i just cant see the block and head once it in. I just wanted the valve cover,oil pan, and timing cover green. The i wanted the head aluminum and the block black. It wouldve looked way better. But i guess you win some and lose some. Yeah yeah i know the first picture isnt that clear but you get the point.

jimmy726
12-13-2008, 12:33 AM
Dude i would love to get him to knock down the price but he is already doing it for $500 taking it out put everything on the new motor and putting it in. So yeah dude cant listen but he is helping me out so i dont know. I guess i better learn to live with it.

how hard would it be to clean the block, and head with paint thinnner?

jimmy726
12-13-2008, 01:27 AM
Probably not hard but i dont want the paint take off from anywhere else but i got to think how much of the block will you actually be able to see on one side you have the intake on the other side you have the exhaust manifold. So i think ill be ok. But i might if i see it in my truck tomorrow and it just bugs the fuck out of me. I will just have to see i guess.

Well this is after i pulled the old dash. Word of advise make sure you pull the steering wheel if you decide to do a dash swap.
http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff286/jd42047/DSC01475.jpg
I got kind of confused because the drives side bar assembly was way different then the factory one. I looked on here and MT and and i just ended up using my old bar assembly.
http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff286/jd42047/DSC01476.jpg
I got my one piece back glass in and you can see the bed full of parts from the old dash.
http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff286/jd42047/DSC01481.jpg
And the finished dash after 2 hard days of work. I still need to order the radio kit and i have to get a column cover because i guess the factory one wont work.

jimmy726

Im running 225 40 18 thats pretty much the norm. I wouldnt run 215s because your tire is not flush with the rim. Some people run the 215 with hopes that they wont have to flare there bed.

if you runn 225 on a from you aint gotta worry about flaring the bed,,,fro has more of a foare than the hb, you might also beable to get away with 235 in the back

shit i didnt know the dude was running a fro. But i hate when i hear people running 215 on titans. The person who i got my tires from had 215 and it looked like total dog shit and the 2 rims that he had them on were all fucked up

Alright so i went to u pull it yesterday and scored a very nice bench seat for $20. Shit you cant beat that i was surprised of how nice it still was.

And i just took a pic of my truck i need a bag job cause the front is way lower than the back.
http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff286/jd42047/DSC01517.jpg
When I bought my 89 King Cab brand new, I got the base model and it had the bench seat. I hated that damn thing.I couldnt afford to buy the truck with the upgrade package that included the buckets. Eventually I got some CRX seats. Then finally I got a pair of SE-V6 seats. Man I was stoked. Only took me 5 years.
Keep up the good work.
BTW, What are your plans for the center console?

jimmy726
05-16-2009, 05:37 AM
Dam that sucks i still have my buckets which are still in really good condition. And to be honest im still not settled on the bench yet. I had to modify it to catch a lean alittle more. I really didnt know the hardbodies came with xcabs that had bench seats in them. BUT i finally figured out how to get the glue off the side of my truck today. I have tried everything. GOO GONE, GAS, WD 40 nothing worked. So i took it to a buddies parents paint shop and they hook me right up with the shit i needed. It took like a hour or so and a bondo spreader but finally after trying all that shit that doesnt work [so dont waste your money] its off. He told me it was some kind of reducer but im not sure what kind. He said it would hurt the paint so hopefully he is right lmao.

yeah well i think it will be strong enough. They tied the notch in with the plating so technically it is.

09-24-2009, 01:03 PM
Did you get drop spindles for the front? It wont lay completly out up front without them unless you modify the UCA? Other wise looking good, Id say gusset that rear x-member up good at the frame it should be strong. Just monitor it for a while when u start driving it to make sure it doesnt twist or flex.

pugz
09-24-2009, 01:08 PM
He got drop spindles a while back. But i agree with ven on that crossmember should be gusseted. Espically since its a daily and u drive on dirt roads here and there

jimmy726
09-24-2009, 04:23 PM
Yeah ive had spindles for awhile and thanks for the input fellas. I will defiantly watch the x member for any signs of movement. I hoping theyll put some gussets on the x member but like i said they are just starting the rear. Anthony just had surgery so i guess will see in a few days.

09-30-2009, 01:21 PM
First things first jimmy...... No draggin till after u make it home so u know its strong and safe. And then once u get there make sure it passes the paper test.


But i do agree with ice. I cant stand when shops paint the links while on the truck. And im one who doesnt like painted bushins too.

Famous Last words. Glad to see you getting the truck back. I agree about the sloppy paint work but I understand that you paid to have it bagged NOT painted. Business is Business I guess. Enjoy it man, but plate the frame and x-member before u start railing it!

pugz
09-30-2009, 02:09 PM
The paper test is to lay your truck out and try to slide a singe piece of paper under it. If it slides under the frame u fail. If it hits the frame and bunches up....... Passed!!

its a good idea to run a bridge. you could put a little too much stress on your welds if you dont

10-02-2009, 06:28 AM
and the frame is gonna want to spread apart by the notch.

lil_redd_again
10-02-2009, 11:43 AM
whoa whoa whoa yea buddy Im pretty sure youd wanna run a bridge of some sort but dig it, and think about it, a bolt-on bridge. something fancy with chrome fuckin, star or allan head bolts holding it on. I saw Ice did one for a customer and I see them more and more, such a cool idea man. Made so you dont have to cut the bed you know? if you havent already..

you may be able to get away without a bridge but uhh...yea

O.S.K
10-02-2009, 02:52 PM
We usually place a cross brace "bridge" at least just before and after the notching on our customers trucks for the whole flex side of things.
Rather be safe then sorry.

jimmy726
10-02-2009, 03:45 PM
Alright well i talked with someone who builds them and he said it should be fine. Since my setup isnt near the notches and i have the supports in the back and in the front of the notchs i should be fine. But here are somemore pics.

Ice
10-04-2009, 08:56 PM
is that the finished gauge install?:eek:

i dunno if theyre doing it... but i would ask them to over drop your bed another 2.75" , so when you do a bodydrop , you wont have to cut the bed again....

jimmy726
10-04-2009, 09:01 PM
Yeah dude my thoughts exactly about the gauge panel. im hoping that it was just a test fit. And i think by the time i do a bd im going to have a fuel cell made probably

pugz
10-04-2009, 11:15 PM
ya they should invest in 4$ worht of abs plastic and make a filler forthe gauges. avs gauges arent bad.

jimmy726
