Went custom? How much that end up running you?

There are tons of mods to this truck that do not show up on this pic. It will take another month or so to complete the rig in general. Will elaborate more down the road. .. busy busy.
However. . 33x9.50 spare under the back with other misc mods.
With a child playing hockey. . the rear carrier was a total pain in the butt. Hockey bags in and out multiple times daily was the game breaker.
Look at the bumper
If you really start looking, the only part under the hatch that is Nissan are the endcaps.

Wow, that's such a nice clean looking build. Kudos! I love the fact that it is still on 33s. Cannot wait for more updates.

Nice to see you finally made it up here. I see you around all the time, in fact you gave me your old rear bumper. It worked out nicely. Good work with the X, I love seeing it at school sometimes. Makes me happy. Now post up the specs because I know that what you did with Kevin (Alpine Spirit for everyone else) was awesome, but I know this is just sick.
Yeah, this is just awesome. Well done.
Rock me sexy Jesus..............
How you doing you sexy thing you
You are not kidding!
So some credit where it is due. Pics later on the braking system. However Barry "NissanNut" researched the 300z twin turbo brake master cylinder. The rear axle on this rig is a disk bake unit. The 90-91 300z came with 4 wheel disk brakes and used a bigger master. Via his research this rig ended up with one. So far so good!
I have also built a few of these rigs in the past. For a quick do it yourself sas it is really hard to beat the Calmini setup. Steve did a wonderful job making a kit for the common folk. No sas is safe being built with a hot glue gun. Just make sure the welder knows his stuff. The setup works great If used for the purpose it was built. Some of the things on my rig are simular. . Can't say I didn't learn anything by working with Calmini parts.
Steevo "Rugged Rocks"... What do I need to say. . He works everyday to make our Nissan life better. Nobody has spent more time on the phone getting us supported! Please support him when you can. It only makes or hobby better. The more you support him the more we get supported.
Here is my version of an economical fuel tank skid.
I'd live to see this rig in person. Nice!
How thick did you go?
I went the lazy way and laid strips inside the existing ridges and just welded them in.
It is a .120 wall plate. Light and strong from the corrugated effect between the skid and the new plate.
Working on the t-case skid this evening...
Torchmate... very nice. Which model do you have? I've been thinking about the 2x4 for a few years but other projects always seem to get in the way.
Nice work on those bumpers; the best I've seen so far.
Plan on spending about twice as much as you think for the setup...
Spend the day driving it in 2wd... no loose bolts and drives well.
