Default Long term build - 93 hardbody

Slowly starting this build after getting the truck this past June. The only thing Iíve done so far is find a pathfinder hood since I prefer that look. I just ordered some LRB speed aluminum door panels and will update once I get those on, but Iím so excited to get started on this thing. Gave it a good wash and was very impressed with how well it cleaned up.

The second picture IS the truck! It is just reflection off the paint.

Ordered some new Kenwood speakers and Kenwood head unit to throw in. It has a pretty low end Dual, and some older Kenwood speakers that work whenever they want. So, hoping this will be a vast improvement! I’ll finally be putting the LRB speed aluminum door panels too I’ve had sitting around for awhile. It’s not much, but it is progress. And hopefully within the coming months I will install some drop spindles and drop leafs. My goal is to have it lowered by September for the Gridlife Midwest festival here in Michigan.

OK, I have a pic like that of my former 94 pathfinder, can see across the street reflection in the paint. Can see the body line in the pic.

The truck is finally lowered! Installed drop spindles and rear drop leafs. I forgot to swap steering stops, so unfortunately ground a very slight amount of my wheels. Hopefully putting those stops in will fix that! Put in the new Kenwood stereo and speakers, with the aluminum door panels from LRB Speed. Installed new LED headlights, clear turn signals and side markers, chrome grille. Itís starting to finally feel like MY truck. Ordered new lug nuts since the stocks were such a tight fit, and gonna order some new tires. Then we will drive it and see how she feels with a fresh front and rear end. It feels so great getting all these parts FINALLY installed. All I have to replace now is the speedo cable hahah.

Do you still have the black grill? PM me if you want to let it go for the low.

Ended up getting tires for the QX4 wheels, and we will just run these for awhile. (If anyone knows of any six lug billets in MI let me know!) Ordered new plugs, wires, cap/rotor, and gear oil for trans and diff. Sheís been running a little iffy lately, and Iíve got no idea the last time any of that has been replaced. Should run great afterwards.

Those QX4 rims look nice. I wonder if those were available in Chrome?
