You have already done son amazing work, you should take that talent and make a skid.

Thanks a lot for that . Can’t take all the credit though, i did have my buddy help me . I was thinking of trying to find an old stop sign that is not in use and bending it to fit . I could buy a skidplate made specifically for the lift i have but at $250 plus shipping i feel like it would be much cheaper to fab one up . I want it to tie in with my bumper aswell to cover the bottom portion of my condenser . Almost slammed into it a couple times before wheeling . Better safe than sorry

Work on a cardboard cutout first then Fab something up, if I could weld id make a front bumper.

Yeah , thats what i was thinking initially. I’m going to see how it does wheeling this saturday (haven’t wheeled in about a year.) Then i’ll get to work on doing a skid plate . After that i’m going to need to do more rot repairs , have 2 holes behind both of my struts .

Finally got around to lifting the rear more to match the front lift. What i did to achieve this was remove the 4” Jeep WJ coils i had installed and ordered some 6.5” Jeep WJ coils to net me about 7” of lift in the back with the top pig tail cut off. Install was not to bad and took about an hour and a half with the help of my buddies lift. I love these coils they are a nice soft ride not to harsh at all .Lifting it more made me realize one of my U-Joints on my rear driveshaft is shot and has quite a bit of play so that will be the next thing i replace with a stronger than oem unit and grease able just so it can last longer . Moog sells several “ultra strength “ units so i’ll give those a shot .

Glad you were able to resolve the rust issue.

Are you coming to the Back to School Run?

I won’t be able to make it, i’m having trouble with u joints on my driveshaft. I tried 3 different brand u joints and they all have play in the same exact spot .

Reviving a really old thread.

Been out of the offroading scene for quite a while now. I finally acquired a new rig. From texas and rust free! Pretty much everything already done to it. Needs some minor things that need to be swapped over from ol rusty but I am so happy I'm finally in a lifted pathfinder again and eager to get back on the trails.

Here's a couple of photos when it first arrived at my door step ImageImageImageImageImageImage

2001 , so it has the 3.5l motor opposed to the 3.3l motor I'm so used to. Big perk is I don't have to deal with a timing belt anymore. Unfortunately I've had to replace both camshaft sensors and went with OEM replacements, which were pretty pricey as it is. Thankfully it was a very easy replacement and the sensors were easily accesible on top of the motor. ImageImage

Looks good. What’s been done to it, looks to have a big lift?

It actually has the same lift as my old white one

4" sub frame drop with 2" ac lift coils for a total of 6" in the front.

Rear is lifted 6.5" right now.

On my white one i have it lifted 8" to accomadate all my tools and the extra weight . Just haven't got a chance to swap that lift over.

It's on 35s aswell

Things that need to be addressed before I take it on the trails;
-Both Cv Axles replaced (boots are torn badly on the new rig) thankfully it has man hubs so I have it in free mode so the cvs don't turn. I already have both Cvs from the white rig but there is a bunch of small hairline cracks in the boots so I'm trying to find a replacement boot.
-Airbag fixed (Just needs a clockspring which I plan to swap over from the old rig)
-Brake power booster(braking sucks until it warms up already have the part just need to swap it in)
-Rock Sliders transferred over from the old rig
-Re-pack the wheel bearings as PM
-Install the front sway bar quick disconnects (currently it has no sway bars at all)
-Swap over steering shaft from the old rig. (New rigs steering shaft has a ton of play in the joint)

Took the new rig for a quick wash after I re-bedlined the rust prone areas . I'm super excited to start modding and working on this. ImageImage
