    Wow, looks great! Really aggressive sidewall on those Wildpeaks, are they the load range E? I've heard the sidewall on those has a more aggressive tread than range C.

    Not gonna lie, i was just digging around for the thread with the land rover talk lol. heim joint rear end wouldn't be too bad, its like 175$ for an 8 kit on rockwell off road. + another 3$/foot for tubing. Figure another 225$ for heim joint rear vs 20$ for spliced rear. (excluding brake line, random metal costs, pan hard bracket, etc...)

    I know Land Rover springs are the latest hot thing, maybe that will have a length that at least gets you close to what you need? Not sure how much you need though, that may not be even close. If it were me, I'd do entirely new trailing arms rather than sleeve the existing ones; I know it would make me much more comfortable cruising it around that way, and especially so offroad if you intend to wheel it.

    I put the jack stands under the car (right on the rail, in front of the lower trailing arm bracket). the back wheels are barely off the ground... So i'm either gonna have to put a foot of wood under the jack stands, or get ones that are a foot taller. Either way, its pretty annoying. Rear currently has 2" lift coils. The goal is to see if I cant get ahold of longer springs that fit this. That or longer springs and weld on a spacer.

    I saw some numbers/letters on the inside of the corner extension piece the other day. Ill try to get a picture of them as they might help find out what this bumper came off of originally.

    Got the car out and back into the shed so I can get working on the rear end. Really would like to extend the current 4 link with sleeves, but another part of me says heim joints all the way around... IDK yet! Here are a few pics I took while moving it around. Also, if you have any ideas/suggestions for the front or rear end, id love to hear them. Constructive criticism is great. I want to do a pinion brake setup.. but we'll see

    Thanks! The tires and wheels paired together really well imo. Hardly any trimming to make them fit too! It was tempting because going up to a 33x12.5 was the exact same price, but I ended up with the 32.

    Definitely some clean looking rides over there, but the one in this link incorrectly lists it as having the 3.5. The 3.5 didn't come into play until 2001.

    Looks incredible! Really makes me wish I had gone up another inch & went with 32's. Oh well, I am loving my new AT3W's though!

    Finally seeing some snow in Tennessee! For those fortunate/unfortunate to get more snow, drive safe!

    New wheels and tires. Really happy with how it turned out. 32x11.5r15 Falken Wildpeaks on DX4 Gear wheels (15x8 -19mm)
  23. Junk was simplistic, the 3rd Gen T4R is historically a solid vehicle. And no question regarding aftermarket support but that’s in large part due to Toyota’s long term commitment to off-road vehicles & the resultant popularity. Heck, even with my R50, I almost bought a FJ-40 as a play truck & an FJ-60/62as a project truck in 2003-4 (didn’t have the mere thousands that would have been then - touting Toyota FJs then made you the odd man out, that’s how much things have changed). It’s just in late ‘02, the VQ was much stronger, the Pathfinder’s handling was far superior (likely due to it’s unibody) & the interior of the 3rd Gen T4R was unbelievably dated for the time. Obviously Toyota knew it too as the 4th Gen came out right after I bought in Sept ‘02. Had I been able to buy later, I would undoubtedly have purchased a 4th Gen T4R (though with some reservation regarding its width). In ‘02, I found the Pathfinder a little bland in styling. It was the engine, handling & AWD option, in the face of a much nicer interior, that sealed the deal for me. Back then Toyota was only marginally more reliable than Nissan with Honda head & shoulders above all else (Nissan has recently fallen off the reliability cliff - thanks Renault). All that said, I put the WAAG front runner & lights on it to “toughen” its appearance up a bit.

    Thank you, I’ve always wondered what the correct terminology was [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Definitely has potential to be cool, though. It would be tough to find a light bar that could sit flush without looking out of place. I look forward to seeing what you do! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Welcome!! Literally just an FYI (it’s my OCD, the meds just aren’t working) fair·ing /ˈferiNG/ noun - an external metal or plastic structure added to increase streamlining and reduce drag, especially on a high-performance car, motorcycle, boat, or aircraft.
  27. Can you explain the PCV Catch can? Is this for the oil burning issue?

    What did you do to your Pathfinder today?

    When my lights were on “auto” and stayed on for 4 hours. Thanks@joshrichard Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
