14 Days to order – Group buy on DT headers

Doug Thorley hasn’t had Nissan headers on the shelf in quite some time. The main reason is due to the pandemic affecting manufacturing capacity and the lack of nissan demand in comparison to other applications.
To get Nissan headers in line for production, we are attempting to get 15 orders of each of the following products by February 28th.

Exhaust Headers for 2005+ Xterra / Frontier w/ 4.0L v6 (P# 470-L-C)
B-Pipes for 2005-2015 Xterra w/ 4.0L v6 (P# 83206-B)
Exhaust Headers for 98-04 Xterra / Froniter w/ 3.3L v6 (P# 465-L-C)
Exhaust Headers for 1990 – 1997 Hardbody Pickup / Pathfinder 3.0L v6 (P# 464-2)

On February 28th, I’ll be placing the order with Doug Thorley for the parts to be made that meet the minimum order qty of 15 and pay in full.
Orders for parts that don’t make the 15 order qty minimum will be cancelled / refunded.
After February 28th, I can’t do cancellations or refunds for parts that move forward with production. From there it will be about 10-12 weeks until the headers ship (Around the end of May)

Doug Thorley is having a price increase on March 1st as well, so this is an opportunity coincidentally lock in the current pricing.

Orders can be placed online at https://ruggedrocks.com. Please place your order sooner than later so we can get an accurate idea of how this is shaping up and I can keep everyone up to date over the next few weeks of our progress.
Sharing this e-mail on social media, forums etc will also help and is greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Off Road Trail Communications

Talking about radio is a bit off the beaten path from talking abou tNissan stuff, and I”ll get back to that shortly. But first lets talk about trail communications.
A very common topic of discussion, ever since I started hitting the trail, is trail communications.  Many people have relied on the easiest form of radio communications to get a hold of. For years that solution was a CB radio, in more recent years there has been a shift to handheld FRS radios but most are still left unsatisfied. Oher options include “Race” Business band radios as well as ham radios.

In many cases the disatisfaction isn’t any fault of the radios, but rather improper setup or unrealistic expactations of the user.  I have put together a few very generalized videos of Do’s and Don’t regarding radio setup and comparisons  of various radio types. I have also included a 70+ mile ham radio demo on the 2m band, the most popular choice for trail and emergency comms among ham radio operators.

Each of the 4 videos are posted here:

2m Ham Radio Demo:

Radio Part 1: Antenna Setup Basics… Very Basic.

Radio Part 2: Coax Cable Do’s and Dont’s.

Radio Part 3, Radio Comparisons


I hope you find these videos helpful, I’ll now get back to the Nissan stuff.


Labor Day Deal on Titan-Swap Gear & Locker Packages


4.10 Gear and Locker Titan Swap Package Deal

I got a TON if Nissan owners giving me feedback via a recent survey on instagram which helped lead to this Labor Day Deal.
For those of you that have been customers of mine for a long period of time, you have likely realized that I don’t usually run sales. In fact, I dont think I have run a sale on anythig in over 10 years.
I like to primarily focus on developing quality products, maintianing the value of the products, and offering a low pressure sales experience.
However, Hopefully saving a couple bucks on regearing and locking your titan swapped Xterra or frontier will be found to be beneficial.
The package deal can be found here:  https://ruggedrocksoffroad.com/index.php?route=product/search&search=Titan%20swap%20gear%20locker%20package

There are a ton of features on instagram that only become active once we have reached 10,000 followers. Having these features available would allow me to interact with the nissan enthusiasts in a much more effective way,
