Mike’s Bagged Nissan Hardbody


When Nissan first envisioned a pickup truck capable of hauling people and equipment across vast distances, I doubt they meant for it to be dumped to the ground.  Luckily Michael Adney got a hold of a 1989 Nissan Hardbody and got to work installing an air suspension that would ensure he could safely carry a mountain of bricks while dragging frame all along the interstate.

Michael’s Hardbody (yes that’s what the ladies call him as well) is definitely a creature of passion.  His dumped red rider is running on a set of Slam Specialties re-6’s and re-7’s with an 8 gallon Viar 380c tucked and boxed neatly under the rear cab.

Check out the full list of  mods Michael plugged into his killer Hardbody:
