It's a wonderfully enjoyable tight compact pickup to modify (hobby) ;...I've done far too much to take the time and list all the improvements on this sight.. (maybe a few).
Completely renovating its' interior:
From added electronics, inclinometer, CB, custom built overhead and center consoles (with ice cooler), Nissan 'Z' car seats, Pathfinder 4 spoked steering wheel w/tilt, digital gages, DVD& VCR players, 7" tuner/monitor, Pioneer sound, AC/DC outlets, custom interior (Blue, maroon, red, white and grey), tint/window vents, and enough sound deadening to rival a Caddy... just to name a very few.
There is one aspect of the name 'Hard-body' which truly defines my pickup... after accomplishing all the necessary mechanical & electrical mods, I cleaned ALL the hidden areas I could and then applied an adhesive glue to them. Reason?...I then filled these cavities with Great Stuff (expanding foam) which after setting up for several days, turned its' bodywork into a true HARDBODY. It sounds like a solid tire when you tap on it and the truck would probably float if tossed into the water. It's so solid!...and feels it when driven! Polyurethane bushings, upgraded torsion & sway bars, Airlift automatic rear bags, Rancho remote 9000 shocks, 8.5 cast aluminum (high strength) wheels and 30" x 9.50" Michelin LTX tires all work together to make this the most enjoyable and downright FUN TO Drive compact I've ever had. And I've had many... from big to small.
The Vector Inverter allows me to take this out into the woods and utilize skill saws, electric chain saws, etc simultaneously. My latest mod is upgrading all the lighting possible to LED. They honestly get your attention!...use far less amperage, operate cooler, last forever (long after I'm dead anyways), are extremely quick!,...and can be installed just about anywhere. Aftermarket side-view mirrors reduce wind noise and look great! You can even modify these by putting anti-freeze filled bags behind the glass and then Great Stuffing to hold in place (just make sure they are where you want them for proper viewing). They will automatically never freeze over!
