A blank canvas to work with! Love that color, too! That is my favorite look on a Frontier... Crew Cab and a long bed. Will be fun with the Titan Swap. Are you going full Swap?
My plan was full Titan swap, rear axle and front diff included. The rear axle will take a bit of modification to do (moving leaf spring perches and possibly shock mounts) and I might get the rear 4 linked at that same time, haven't decided yet.

Probably go with stock Titan parts for the short term, upgrading to a Dirt King kit eventually.

In the mean time, I'll be pulling the rear seats and installing a platform in their place with a molle panel on the rear wall to hang gear bags from. Unsure of what bumpers to go with though, trying to decide between arb or a custom/fabricator build. Rear will for sure end up custom. I want to do a high clearance wraparound with dual swingouts, which seems to be missing in the Frontier aftermarket.

Yeah, I have a MaxGear. Would love a high clearance bumper and dual swingout. The high clearance just wont work with the X without moving the EVAP and a lot of cutting. I have a 2005 Rear axle we are cutting the perches and putting some ballistic fab ones on in the right spot. Would love to four link but gonna wait til I do a Currie rear. The DK Lower Arms dont give any added travel so i nixed that idea.

Good to know on the DK lower arms. Sounding like it's just the knuckles to look at from them. I saw a few posts over on club frontier talking about plating stock Titan lower arms to beef them up, so I may go that route.

Any advice on coilovers? Part of me says don't waste time and go straight for kings instead of radflo's or fox.

Yeah, I was all hot to get on those DK arms but if they dont give you any extra why waste the $ unless you want bling. Next, where do you live? That will make the decision on the coilovers easier. The Kings are nice but they are meant for a hot and dry climate. Either Radflo or Fox. I had Sway-Away and their playing was terrible. Kings are high maintenance. Can't say anything g about the Icon.

As far as external reservoir vs Internal bypass, I went with the internal as it's easier to dial in. The remote res look cool but a pain to adjust.

Rears, I went from Radflo to the Bils 5165 24" as it has the same compressed length as the 18" Go with 2.0 if you do with Radflo as 2.5 yield less travel and really are a pain to fit.

I'm up in Alberta, so it can get pretty cold for several months at a time in winter. I'm fairly mechanically savvy, so a yearly seal replacement on shocks/coilovers would not really bother me if the performance was high enough.

I do like the Kings, but I think they are over priced. Radflo are the best bang for the buck. And believe me, I really wanted King
