Thumbs up D31 navara D21/D40/R31 build/rebuild

hey all!

i got this truck when I was 17, mum passed it to me (was my dads he passed away when i was 9) always thought it didnt have any go in it, didnt even know what you COULD do to a truck. boy was a wrong.
searched a few things and seen this website a few months after i was 18 and yeah i new id have this truck for the rest of my life.

well then now im 21 and its been a long build but im willing to kick it into high gear and get stuff done!

what is done to the truck already:
18s
shaved tub
4x4 gards on back
tailgate welded shut
tail lights cut and re fited
rods but in to be shaved door handles
mono leaf (bump stops out)
seats riped out

my big list:
baged 4 link (i want the wheels to come off ground)
notched
body droped
tub extended to over lap cab (if you dont get what i mean thats what im doing next)
front end convesion
new 350 turbo installed
front seats bolted into the back and new seats installed (turned into a 4 seater in other words) building center console to run from dash to back window (subs amps ect)
windows on air (really cool idea i thought up)
big sound system
doors shaved
vents shaved
roll pan
mtb handle bar (cut to size) as gear shift
bigger brakes
suiside back doors
shange mirors
hard cover to match ribs (body line) of roof
fuel cap fixed inside tub (currently cable tied inside the gard with wheel)

well thats basicly the most of it (i wont go into to much detail unless you want to know whats going on with that mod ect)

heres some picks

from many years ago when i first took off the bull bar canope and plasticks










and now




sized it up


cut it out (half cut it out)

welded on both sides. a few hours work, first time ive really welded on my truck, also havent re routed my fuel yet its zip tied to the inside of the tub.
sketchy counts haha


welded the sides tailgate up and made a curve in the tub, thought it would be alot different (was going to folow the curve all the way around but it i didnt like the look of it when we tryed it)

after grinding all the spots off

as is now painted the whole car primer (kinda drove it throught the roller door at home and had to do some bodywork to the front so i had to primer the front after so i desided to do the car do make it look kinda not cop bait haha) ive also gone monoleaf too so it sits alot lower than as is in photo

sorry for no updated picks (flickr is taking forever)

Sweet truck man. I'm always very jealous when I see one of these 4 door trucks hooked up. Don't get me wrong, I love the look of my single cab but I would love to be able to take the family out for a drag or local show once in a while.

ok well while im saving up for parts/welder/sheet metal i want to get a few ideas sorted out.
i want to get the wheels off the ground and i have a few ideas on how im going to do it but i dont know what wil work and what wont and whats just a stupid idea and whats clever. so yeah id like to know what you guys think would be a good or bad idea.

first off i want to get the back wheels off the ground (i dont really cair how i just want it to work haha) ive seen a few diferent disigns, at first i was thinking of suckin the air out of the bags (found out that wouldnt be the best idea. secound thoughts, running secound bags (small enough to just lift them up) then i thought of running air jacks to lift diff when the bags a fully deflated. but now im stumped on how im going to do it, i seen somewhere someone has put there diff ontop of there rails (just ran them flat) and had the bags to lift up the diff to lower it.

so yeah im not sure anymore..

secound im going to run my windows on air. so yeah i dont want to break the glass so yeah i want them to go really quick and just about 200mm it slows right down. so yeah im going to run air actuators and have some sort of hydrolic rod that pressures the air actauors to slow them down..

i hope some people read this and give me some advice for this is my first truck

thanks for reading

That reworked bed looks really good for a short bed. I like the idea of the frame stretch with a full size bed. But thats a lot more work than what you did. But looks good anyways. I like the slight spoiler effect on the rear of the bed/tailgate.
