One more question for you - does your tonneau overlap over your factory bedrails? If so has it ever shifted and scratched the paint? Thanks
It does overlap the bedrails and it's never shifted as far as I know. No marks on my paint anyway.

I agree with you about the spindles. The CST's worked really nice on my Frontier.

Thanks. Thes are 33.2 inches tall. Any bigger and I don't think the 4 banger would like it. It drives pretty decent with this setup.

Awesome...that's quite a jump from leveler to 6". Looking great, I still love the black accents on the white truck.

Just out of curiosity, what kind of mileage do you get with the 4-banger with the tires and lift? I was actually looking to go with a 4, then the Sport kinda landed in my lap. It was all about the mileage coming from a v10 F250, now my winter mileage is in the low 14's with alot of idle time, and my summer mileage is pushing middle 18's. According to fuelly.com, I'm averaging about 15.5mpg.
My driving habits, (), lots of long graded hills, and winter warm-up idle time hurt me I'm guessing

Thanks John. Right now I'm averaging 18mpg according to the Ultra Gauge. Whenever I do the math the gauge is pretty accurate. I've been on vacation all month and all the driving here is 45mph or less in town. No highway at all. I expect I'll average 20 or so when I get back home and start driving more on the freeway.

Having said that, I probably would rather have a V6 with this lift and tire combo. If I had any intention of doing a 6 inch lift in the beginning I wouldn't have bought a four.

That 18-20mpg on a lift and tires like that make me JEALOUS!

Thanks. The rear hasn't settled yet. It's still level like it was when it rolled out of the shop. The strange thing is I only got 6 inches up front even with the the Eibachs installed. That hasn't changed since the install either. I can't think my winch setup made those springs settle 1.6 inches.

Every one has to be soldered and it looks really tedious to do but he has done enough now that it's routine for him. I love the blue LEDs. Will is the man.

Pyro13g has a thread here with more info on the mod:

This is the thread where I met him. It's has a bit more info:
