Hello all. Been lurking here for a while, just joined.

Traded in an 06 Frontier NISMO4x4 for a loaded 08 PF OR w/ arrival of first child. While I do miss the 6 speed manual of the fronty (that thing was a blast to drive), i'm happy w/ the move.

Future mods include lift: was considering OMU but not convinced (too many post install problems w/ alignment, and was advised by ARBUSA against for this reason - great company honesty, no?). Been following recent posts re. other options (coil-over, etc), and learning a great deal. Thanks to all who share their knowledge.

Also in the works are sliders (thinking supers from Rocky-Road) and a custom receiver cage mount to carry Jerry cans. I run a Thule on the roof which allows some room for a custom cage there, but i'd like to keep weight low. Found a local welder who can make to my specs: immediately out of receiver i want it to angle up to maintain departure angles/clearance, set off to right to allow access to back, w/ a hinge that swings out so that rear door can swing open. If i pull this off i'll post some pictures.

thanks to all again for sharing their technical and other experiences.

Welcome.

If you do decide to go with the mods by all means, post pictures. They sound very intersting and fun.
