Here is a pic of the truck leaning, and the broken Torsion bar Was mocking up and taking measurements , figuring out ride height and looking at the angles of everything, here is a slightly higher

No real updates, being laid up with restrictions sucks, another 4 -6weeks left but figured I'd post to keep the crickets at bay. Still planning on full suspension build. Some good news, my new welder

Yep, indeed.   Today, more parts research and measuring, and eyeballing, figure I'll use 1.5" lift jeep yj front springs for the front of my swap, Chevy flat top knuckles for crossover steering,

Did you start focus back on building the Nissan?

Nope, not focused, but always ready to grab parts on the list especially when they come to me lol.

Been a while, but here is an update, And yes I know, another direction lol. I had Toyota axles for this truck, however it is not cost effective for me to build these axles up, maybe the parts are expensive or I'm just cheap, or a combination of both,  so I have sold them . Now in my possession is an early bronco d44 front diff, and I still have the Nissan Xterra rear diff H233B with 4.90 gears. 

The front diff came complete with front frame , steering and suspension cutoff at the firewall. The steering box is outboard on the frame. 

The bronco diff is 5 lug drum brakes, I'll be converting it to disc , and 6 lug using Chevy spindles, rotors, calipers and hubs. 

Still planning on the yj lift springs that I have for it. Should be able to start prepping for  the swap once the weather is above 0 degC continuously.

Fiberglass? Was that factory or a kit or something?

It was aftermarket piece for the mini truck scene. This exact one was marketed for Nissan King cab mini trucks, there were several configuration available in the 80's for different wheelbase trucks.
