    yung maingay na tumatama na bolt na may cover na plastic (stopper bolt sa pagliko)...ang solusyon ko dyan eh...ALISIN KO NGA....

    now I don't have to worry about the ingay and replacement na napakamahal (tig P190 or 290 yata isa nun sa CASA)...ang side effect lang nag-ra-rub ang isang gulong ko when i do a full turn kasi malaki yung gulong ng elite...pero dun sa standard walang effect...gumanda pa turn radius nito.

    naku mga peeps I just had a go from my boss...isa-swap ko na yun frontier ko dun sa dmax namin na spare...huhuhu...di nako makaka istambay sa frontier group (OA ba?! )

    Ang dami ko ring natutunan dito sa frontier...

    LIFTING RIDE HEIGHT (low budget style)
    baka alam nyo na (pero para na lang ito sa mga hindi familiar)...yun standard na fronty can be adjusted pa ang height by an inch through the T-bar adjustment para tumaas ng kaunti sa harap...yung likod bili ka ng new shackles na mahaba ng 1.5" ang space ng butas. COST OF LIFTING THIS WAY P300-1500 - price ng new shackles and labor for Tbar adjusment

    (medium budget style)
    BODY LIFT option...spacers na 1 to 2 inches lang para walang major changes. Above 2 inches medyo marami ng babaguhin ng mountings and bibili ka nang bagong hose (brake and fuel)...P7,000 to 10,000.

    (high budget style)
    CALMINI brand have a lifting kit - A-arms sa 4x2 pero around P30,000 yata ang aabutin to order sa internet and ship it here (parang US$250 yung A-arm). Labor sa replacement siguro aabutin ng P3,000.

    si Vinj daming tips and tricks for fronty yan...

    Sino alam nyo na gumagawa ng look-alike ng fender flares ng 4x4/titanium na mura lang? Mahal sa CASA halos P25k or P35k yung binangit sa akin dati.

    The Bosch lights can be found if you go door-to-door in Banawe or shops along Malugay amongst some. They’re also sold in some stores at the mall (Bosch shop in Shang) but it’ll be more expensive.

    On the headlight upgrade, you have to have relays, thicker wirings and ceramic sockets installed. Have a good electrical shop do the work (i.e. Reys or Wizzard) since hassle masiraan ng headlights talaga. Wizzard will charge around 1.3K to 1.4K for the whole work (no bulbs yet, but they do sell bulbs at a reasonable price). There are also plug-and-play kits available at some auto supplies.

    Yung ingay ng cone type wont be as loud as a jeepney but you can say it is louder then when you put a copne-type on a gas engine… it can still be bearable.

    I just had my new bed cover installed yesterday… nice. Now I think I have to raise my rears a bit (maybe around ¼ to ½ of an inch) since the front T-bars are already cranked up (had it done for free when i got my wheel alignment work done); I’m not sure about this but it seems the ride quality of the front improved when I raised it a bit and had the KYB gas shocks, probably due to the increased suspension travel along with the better damping.

    Sayang nga yugn 2003 models wala ng ung heater ng A/C system....

    BTW 109 kung type mo low priced you can always get a Frontier Standard...upgrade mo na lang tires to 15" rims...eto na pinaka mura na presyo....yung friend ko na ahente ng Nissan Balintawak gives me out a P40,000 discount whenever we buy a pick up from him (para sa office)...

    Sa standard ang amenities lang naman na nawala ay yung power windows, lock, sideview mirrors and antenna...all of which pede naman mong mai-upgrade latter on (marami na rin sa Capalanga nun by this time).
    Just to clarify it,
    3 out of 4 units that we purchase for the year 2003 ang nasiraan na ng compressor.

    Also for the discount mababa pa ang 40k na discount. We were able to get as much as 80K.

    wala pa akong fender flares...kala ko pareho ang fender flares ng titanium sa 4x4....maganda nga yung sa 4x4...

    kaso baka hindi ko na iupgrade muna kasi baka matuloy ang swap ko to dmax

    Thanks for the lift info wildthing. I'll be doing the low budget style lift soon. Congrats & enjoy your new future ride.

    Salamat vinj. I called Wizzard already, 1,360K un cost for the wiring upgrade. Meron sila Narva(880php/pair) & OSRAM(480php/pc.), parehong 90/100W All Weather Bulb. OK din ba to? Or Phillips talaga ang maganda para maiwasan un darkening nun headlight? Medyo mahal ang headlight cleaning nila, 680php for the pair. Try ko na din maghanap ng Bosch foglights para isang trabaho na lang gawin nila.

    I just had my new bed cover installed yesterday… nice. Now I think I have to raise my rears a bit (maybe around ¼ to ½ of an inch) since the front T-bars are already cranked up (had it done for free when i got my wheel alignment work done); I’m not sure about this but it seems the ride quality of the front improved when I raised it a bit and had the KYB gas shocks, probably due to the increased suspension travel along with the better damping.
    Cool...anong brand kinuha mo? Mine is Carryboy na kailangan na ng bagong paint job.

    Ichck mo lang baka na full na ang T-bar mo kasi elite yata yung ride mo...I think they torque it higher na sa elite kasi the tires are usually bigger. Pero sa rear, a new pair of taller shackles would do the effect.

    Actually, I would highly recommend the medium lift - BODY LIFT na around P7-10k...just do at most 2" body lift para hindi pa major ang modifications sa radiator and other hose (brake line and fuel line). When you do this and then upgrade your tires to a 31" (or even a 33") diameter tires...halos 4x4 na ang ride height mo.

    Sa 33" inch tires baka nga lang bumagal ang ride mo ng kaunti at hindi na ganun ka accurate ang speedometer.
