Gymkata Pro4X Cummins build

Hey all,

I purchased my 2016 Nissan Titan XD Pro4X Cummins with all 3 major Pro4X packages about 6 weeks ago. Since then I've put over 2,000 miles on the truck and am pretty satisfied with it overall. So far I haven't done much to the truck, but rest assured this truck won't remain stock for long. I can never leave well enough alone with my vehicles.

I plan to set my truck up for all around capability/mild overlanding and will do all the work on the truck myself whenever possible...despite a crazy work schedule. Though I plan to eventually go with a much better suspension system (I'm waiting to see if anybody produces something comparable or better than the Icon Stage III within the next year), I decided my first modification would be a Tough Country 2/1 level in the interim. The truck is still up on jacks in the garage with the install complete on 3 out of 4 corners. (A note for the pic with the key chain ring...I just snapped a pic of my quick fix after I broke one of the stock cottering pins during removal)

I plan to document any and every modification here as well as my experiences as a Titan XD owner and overall truck and outdoor/offroad enthusiast. I look forward to the journey ahead.

Here are a few install pics to start the thread off.

Cotter pins should ever be reused, anyway.

...guess I'll have to go buy a few spares. I'm sure I will be removing those bolts again.

I agree on the Icon pricing...that's crazy. It better ride like it's on air for that amount.

On a side note I think the RC 2/1 rides pretty good. You shouldn't be disappointed.

I have the RC 2/1 on and drove it around the block a bit. I never measured the fender clearance stock, but it seems like the front was raised a little more than 2". As it sits now the front is 1/2" higher than the rear...as measured from the top of the tire to the fender. I do have about 600 lbs of wheels/tires & gear in the bed of the truck so maybe it will sit flush empty.

Yeah their pricing is a bit high. They offer a great product though. I had a stage IV on my Ram 1500...it was light years better than stock. I wish Carli Suspension would build a monster kit for the XD.

I may do it eventually. Just have to see.

I thought my front was high at first, but it seemed to settle in. Maybe I just got used to it. Idk
