Thanks!

Well, I did it. Bought the 02 Frontier. Actually runs pretty good but interior and body are rough. Not sure if it was a good idea or if it will even fit but going to give it a shot. I do know my trans bolts right up and that the engine mounts are the same..

I am always searching for all kinds of stuff.

The wheels fit with 265/75/16's. I just need to install the longer studs.

Everything fits and clears. Man, what a pita of a job doing the studs though. The front hubs had to come off and be completely dismantled to get the rotors out. And while I was in there, might as well replace the rotors too. I also painted everything behind the grill and installed the last new OE 87 Pathfinder grill in the US.

I'm still amazed, that truck looks like it's straight out of a time capsule.

Great work
