    New PRG Aluminum Coilovers - Buyer Beware

    All good points on the coilovers. One side has a regular nut and a nylock. If I can make that fit on the other side (currently two regular nuts), I guess I'll go with that. And yeah, I liked the idea of supporting a small business that takes the time to develop stuff for our trucks so I ignored...

    Pro-Rig V2.0 - Home Built Compact Composite Pop-up

    I went through a pretty hectic scramble prior to the above trip to get a few key things done. Priority one was upgrading the potty. The Thetford Curve that we were using never really impressed. Mainly because cleaning it out with #2's in there was a pretty awful experience. Maybe it's because I...

    Source for lifting roof actuators?

    As others have said, avoid electric actuators if you need them to be in sync with each other. I'm using them somewhat successfully in combination with these: My build thread (see sig) has the details. Basically though, I have these on the front and back of the camper. The electronic actuators...

    Thanks! Not sure what link you're looking for. This is the weather stripping if that's what you are after: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B081JXPZDK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Pro-Rig V2.0 - Home Built Compact Composite Pop-up

    There are some upgrades and mods to the camper and truck to report, but first, A few photos from a trip back in late September. We'd been planning a month-long trip to British Columbia before Covid came along. Plan B was to go up the coast in Nor Cal and Oregon, then all of that caught on fire...

    New PRG Aluminum Coilovers - Buyer Beware

    So, after some back and forth, Greg at PRG reluctantly agreed to send me replacement units. His last words being "...the nut simply backed off, the shock didnt actually fall apart or fail in any way." Hmm. Anyway, that was almost two months ago. No word from him. No replies to messages. Of...

    Tire pressure and air-bag pressure - How to find the sweet spots?

    I've been playing with tire pressure and airbag psi's lately. Here's what I've found so far. I'm at a similar weight but in a Nissan Frontier (I think my weight is more biased towards the rear than you, but don't know for sure). 235/85-16 E-rated tires. I found 65psi in back and 55 up front...

    New PRG Aluminum Coilovers - Buyer Beware

    I realize this post would be more appropriate on clubfrontier or thenewx, but I'm not on those forums so I'll post here and maybe others can pass along the following experience to a broader Nissan audience. I installed the new PRG Aluminum Coilovers a couple weeks before leaving on a multi week...

    Pro-Rig V2.0 - Home Built Compact Composite Pop-up

    Few updates and upgrades to report on... The last trip reminded me of the need to do a better seal between the slide-up and main camper. The existing setup with bulb seals (the bulb meets the black lip below when the slide-up is all the way up) I had several spots where the seal was not at all...

    Pro-Rig V2.0 - Home Built Compact Composite Pop-up

    Been a while since I updated anything, but there has been some work on the camper and, actually, some camping! Let's see, got back from our desert trip and were soon immersed, like most of us, into a world ruled by COVID. The camper sat at home, like us, for several months while I tried to make...

    Pro-Rig V2.0 - Home Built Compact Composite Pop-up

    Thanks man, glad you enjoyed it! I'd seen the Land Rover one, but not the first one. I like what he did for the lifting mechanism - anything that avoids electric actuators is smart. Good luck with you build, hope you start a thread on it and share the fun!

    Show us your things that flip/fold/slide/pop or otherwise open out/up

    One inch on all the walls and cabinets and roof. Plenty strong but not much insulation. Bed platform is about 1.75" thick. I think the 1" would have worked for the bed too, but I didn't want a flexy bed so I ordered one thicker panel for that.

    Show us your things that flip/fold/slide/pop or otherwise open out/up

    Very similar, got it from a place called Carbon Core. The faces are thin plywood and I did a layer of glass over the exposed outside panels.

    Show us your things that flip/fold/slide/pop or otherwise open out/up

    Here's our double pop-up. Table even folds! Panels slide out to make queen size bed. Honeycomb core composite construction, 25 gal water, 200Ah DIY Lithium, fridge/freezer, potty, shower, heater, hot water, etc. Dry weight is about 850lbs. I eventually added actuators to lift the slide...
