    Welcome to the Nation, the last "Smurf" I knew of ended up being solid axled, you have to have some courage in taking the name.

    Hey man I think I just saw you yesterday. I was sitting to pull out onto Union Avenue and saw you pass me heading towards Pleasant Valley Boulevard. Nice to see another X in Altoona. Looking forward to seeing you around.

    Got around to taking the Dremel to the Shrockworks Diff cover bolt holes to make it fit. Updated pics with it installed and sticker collection.

    Well, I have a couple updates. I attempted a light bar install this weekend which ended in 4 of the rack bolts spinning. So, I stopped in frustration until another day. But I will get that bastard done. While in frustration I calmed down by painting my skids instead.

    As much as I didn't want to... I had a shop install my skids and sliders. With my current work schedule I didn't have the time nor do I have the place to do it without having to wait weeks to use my friends garage. Regardless, they are now done and hopefully the only thing I will have to pay someone to install. Pics additions on first post.

    Don't have too many major updates. Just added stair tape to my sliders and removed sway bar. Did however update all pics in first post so everyone doesn't think it's just a driveway queen. There are a few puppy photobombs.

    A few updates;

    With some help and after a few hiccups of having to cut the PITA driver's side rear UCA bolt due to the steering, my Radflo's and SPC UCA's are now on. After alignment, it rides pretty smooth. These were just installed last night, so no offroading as of yet.

    Also, did some more stealthing and painting.

    How'd you get the UCA bolt off?

    Cut it or remove the steering?

    Not too major of an update but finally got around to rear diff extension today after work. Then pups and I went and had some fun. Also, some major things in the works for "The Smurf". Some are known, some I'm keeping secret till done. Stay tuned over the next two months. It's just a waiting game now.

    A big thank you to Ramness for finding these and excellent service. I switched out the retarded dysfunctional big headrests for the smaller older ones. Now I can actually fold down my seats without having to figure out where the hell to put the headrests if I'm fully loaded. The Nissan tech who ok'd the big headrests deserves a nod towards the idiot of the decade award.

    But at least yours come out and aren't molded directly to the seat.

    I didn't even realize I had the stubby headrests until you mentioned it.

    I'm jealous of the blue.
