New R51 Owner

Postby DarkHorse » Fri Feb 14, 2014 8:55 am

Hello all, new to the forums. I've trolled a bit and like what I see in the R51 pages so far so figured I would join. Just picked up this 10' S model for the family. First mod was a double din, and have other plans (nothing too crazy). Question for you with more experience than I do.. Does my 10 need the radiatior bypass mod or has that been taken care of by nissan by the 10 model year?

Here she is..

Currently plastidipping the original wheels black with the glossifier till I can get some other wheels..
- HID/ LED everything, ( including instrument cluster)
- possibly lower it a couple inches (my style may be different than others!)
- maybe some OEM armada wheels.
- also toying with going a different route ( brush guard, bigger tires, lights, etc ) more of an off-road look. All in all I'm not really sure yet. Lol..
I really like this one..

there has been a 2010 with the trans failure problem reported. i wouldnt bypass unless you have exceeded the revised warranty limits.

and armada wheels will not work without a wheel adapter

Thanks, I did read somewhere that I would need adapters.. Probably won't go that route. I will wait till after the recalled warranty period expires to do anything with it. Dipped the stock wheels for now..

Welcome and nice pathy, I've added a 2" lift, hids and a 30" light bar since that pic. I would recommend going with the black oem headlights over the projectors and curved light bar, you will need to add some separate lights for a wider angle if you go the route I did.
