Had to remove my 1st gen AC rear bumper / tire carrier in order to truss, straighten out, fix broken welds/cracks around the receiver hitch....5000 lb rated class III my butt. Beware, hitch is not braced or trussed worth a shit.

Yea I do not trust that at all. All my bolts have surface rust. I’m not towing anything.

Hmm. Thats odd because ive hauled all kinds of things with my X. Even pulled a 2012 chevy cruze on a dolly with no issues. But definitely something I will look in to

03x, I'm talking about the automotive customizers (AC) aftermarket bumper. I never had any issues w/the stock setup...seems well engineered.

bam! One bolt straight thru. Take that rust! Also took this amazing opportunity to gut all the AC stuff as it has never worked, without the condenser, lines and radiator there anymore there's alot of room to work. One less belt and bracket.

Replaced the fuel filter on my 2000 last night. The fuel line was deteriorated horribly, so I replaced it with some fuel line from a spool that I already had. Did fine in the garage, but it ruptured going down the road and left me stranded. Going out to the auto parts stores soon to try and find a high-pressure line to replace the busted one with.

Just a comment: I really liked how the Nissan Hardbody had the fuel filter conveniently located in the engine bay. The Frontiers and Xterras are really difficult to access if you don't have a vehicle lift, and the gasoline pours all over your face while changing the filter even if you try draining the fuel by running the engine with the fuel pump fuse pulled because the filter is located below the top of the fuel tank. It just drains all over you. Hose clamps help, but not if you have to replace the hose.
