    You see a group of about 7 Tacoma's and a 4runner up there this weekend? Knew some other guys that ran it this past weekend as well, I intended on going but ended up too busy last week and didnt have time for pre-trip maintenance and minor repairs on my rig so I didnt make it. Looks like a blast, definitely going to plan a trip next summer!

    Very cool Jenn, thank you for posting! You've built a very capable truck.

    I poked around the area SW of Mina quite a bit in early spring. It is a great area with lots of old mines, mills and cabins. I managed to find the cabin under the rock which was very cool and a fun journey to find.
    I'm in, Let's go!

    Thank you!

    We only made it out to 4 ghost towns in the Mina area (of the ones we visited, Silver Dyke was my favorite) but there were at least 5 or 6 more on my wish list. I've definitely got to get down there again to do some more exploring.

    Hey guys. I used to be a lot more active here a couple years ago, but not so much anymore. But I kinda want to change that and reintroduce myself and show you some of the changes I've made to my truck. Some of you may remember me from Bill's Sunday runs as the timid woman with the shiny stockish truck with an aversion to pinstriping and no freaking clue where any of the parts on my truck were even located. I am no longer that person. Anyway, I dig the "unique" builds that I see on this forum. This is my contribution.

    I am building this truck as a general purpose trail rig capable enough to not have to turn back when the going gets tough. It's not a dedicated crawler and never will be, but I'm already pretty pleased with what I've been able to do with it. We've had some fun adventures together (pics below). It might surprise some of you who knew me "back in the day" to know that I do the majority of work on this truck myself (modifications, repairs, maintenance). This truck has taught me a lot!

    Onto the build... Here is my current list of modifications.

    Specs: 2009 Nissan Frontier SE 4x4 6-speed manual

    Suspension and Tires: Up front, I am running aftermarket UCA's meant for a Nissan Titan along with Radflo coilovers. Down travel on an IFS vehicle is known for being limited, but this setup gives me roughly 3 times the down travel that I would have with a standard lift kit. Because the UCA's are longer than the ones that came on my truck, I also have Titan LCA's and I have extended the CV axles, tie rods and brake lines. In the rear, I am running upgraded leaf springs with longer shackles. Tires are 285/75/16 BFG KO2s. The truck sits roughly 5" over stock up front (4" from suspension, 1" from tires).

    Drivetrain (UPDATED 3/9/15): Titan front differential, 4.56 gears (stock was 3.54), and ARB lockers front and rear.

    Armor: The truck has a custom winch bumper, a rear tube bumper with custom quarter panel protection (thanks Samco), custom sliders, a full set of steel skid plates and some beefy rear shock mounts (thanks Shinobi).

    I purchased this truck brand new in 2009. This is a picture of how it looked stock:


    And how it sits today:


    Here are some trail run pics. These are more or less in chronological order and start off with the truck running little more than a standard 2.5" lift kit. You can watch the truck grow up as you scroll down.

    Wind Caves - winter 2012




    Gold Mountain trail at Big Bear - March 2012


    Eldorado Canyon - February 2013
    This is one of my favorite local trails and I've run it about half a dozen times now. It seems that each time I go, I try a new creek bed section that I hadn't tried previously. This trail has given me more new dents than any other.
    Your good till you stop and feed the bears. Then you get into trouble. Lol
