    This. theres very little member overlap from the FB page to the forum. Hosting pics can get pretty quick and easy once you find a service you like. I use Imgur. You upload photos onto an account you creat for their website, and then they have special links for all kinds of image hosting. It works best if posting into NPORA on a laptop, but I do plenty with the Imgur mobile app and NPORA’s website in safari.

    87-89 were orange. When the brought the 4 door in it went to white lights. My friend has a 90 and they're white. Someone swapped that speedo, and they probably found a nice low mileage one to put in. I'd be replacing the timing belt asap if you haven't already.

    Not sure if you know this, but that NPORA facebook page and this website have absolutely no relation. If you need help with uploading photos a mod will be happy to help you here. @mjotrainbrain

    Fitted up my 33" spare - 255/75r17 to match my 255/85r16 tyres. Also a BFG MT. Only JUST fitted - very tight. Had to let it down to about 4 PSI. Would have gone in more easily if the towbar was just a little further out. I think my bar must differ from US spec ones as some here have fitted 33" spares no worries. In case you're wondering, the factory Nissan towbar is incredibly strong. I broke a Toyota towbar in half at the tongue weld when doing a moderate recovery with an 8 ton snatch strap... and yes, I removed the ball and replaced it with a shackle. Also went on a fun evening trip with the Land Rover club down at the Ashley River. 18 vehicles. I was the only Nissan. Lots of slippery mud and a few nice off camber bits and ruts.

    The only variation I'm aware of with Lego rims is that the super early ones take mag-style lug nuts with washers, and the rest take the standard acorn lugs. There's a part # cast into the rim that'll tell you which one you have. 4030032G00 are the early mag-style, 4030032G10 are the acorns.

    camped north of the pass and went thru Saturday afternoon. Snow was all melted for extra creek runoff and perfect weather conditions! 11/10 will do again. A mile or so past the summit coming down into the dunes Creek crossing beauty shots looking down the pass looking back from the sand

    Look on the other side of the axle towards the front. It will have an arch over the pumpkin, and short arms that L forward, and then 2 short links that go up to connect to the subframe. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    As @R50JR said, that page isn't associated with this forum in any way other than name and some member overlap. If you need help with pics feel free to reach out, or check out one of the how-to's posted in the pics and vids section of the forum! While the option to upload (very small) pictures to the forum exists, this feature is greatly limited intentionally to save server space. The solution for NPORA posting is to host the pictures externally and share them using the image's direct link and the post editor's built in tool to embed them.

    +1 on someone likely swapping out the speedo. The odometer is part of the speedo, so unless the PO went to great pains to make it match the (presumably) dead gauge they took out, it's probably not correct. I haven't had an orange dash apart, but I assume the tint is a layer of orange paint or plastic between the bulbs and the gauge. It might be difficult to match, but yeah, if you can find orange condoms for the bulbs (or orange LEDs), that might get it close enough.

    Interesting. Wonder if the speedometer head got replaced with a newer unit. My 93 was the white on black like yours, but for all the gauges. I personally dislike the orange Nissan uses, I have to turn up the illumination to see it clearly. I have a hard time seeing in the red end of the spectrum. Some orange bulb caps should get it closer at night.

    So, I *think* 16576-5W900 (same as 16576-5W90A) is the part I need. The difference between it and 16576-4W00A is that 4W00A has an extra port with a metal plug right next to the resonator opening, while in 5W900 it is sealed. This is just for reference in case someone finds this thread in the future.

    +1 It's a lot easier to just remove the springs, remove the bump stops and then put in the air bags. Even if you manage to loosen the bump stops, you won't be able to get it out from inside the springs. Sent from my SM-G973U1 using Tapatalk

    I found it to be really easy if you undo the panhard rod and "maybe" the shocks , and the bottom drops out so far you can almost pull the springs out without compressing them at all . Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    I put airbags on an Acura MDX. I could have loosened the bolt on the bump stop without removing the spring. But it would have been harder than just removing the spring, and I couldn't have physically removed the bump stop from inside the spring. Then I also had to drill a hole in the spring perch for the air line. I swapped my springs on my Pathfinder without removing any components but the shocks. I got the subframe on stands, jacked the opposite wheel up a little and used a spring compressor on the spring I was removing. Didn't disconnect brake lines or panhard rod.

    Sort of. I've wheeled on stock wheels and highway tires before. 90 percent of the time I was in 2wd. I'd stick to dry stuff and stay off really loose stuff like deep sand. If you do that, I think you'll find the traction a non-issue and your main obstacle will just be ground clearance for big rocks. If mods are your thing, the right lift, tires and a limited slip should outperform most stock 4wd rigs.

    I don't know of any food that will last if stored in a vehicle. The HOT- Cool - HOT cool cycle destroys even non perishables. I would keep a case of MREs handy under my desk at the office, and some in a "go back" or "day pack". and the pack travels with me from house to car, car to work or whatever. Or I'd even have a case handy at home, and then going on a trip, throw the case of MREs and a couple gallons of water in the truck. Food is just one of those things that you can't store in a vehicle for a long period of time, unfortunately.

    It's all a continuum. A Nissan Sentra has some off road ability, just not much. I can't remember did 2wd of that vintage have LSD, or an option you got? That would help on loose ground. Your 2wd would do OK on rocky and fairly flat terrain. You'd want to skip inclines that increase as they go up. Also be careful mudding or loose sand, I'd say don't do it. Anything that's real slick but can stick you up if the front wheels can't help pull you through. Hard pack sand would be fine. And always have a recovery plan. Getting a cheap electric winch would be recommended if you plan to push it at all. And carry a shovel. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Hello! I'm late to join, but I've had my 1999 (or 99.5... not sure) for over nine years. Bought it with 125k miles for $5k bucks, and it's still going strong 70k miles later! So far, everything's stock, but looking to get a little more aggressive. The front CV joints are shot, so that's next on my repair list if you have any tips. In the future, looking at swapping the autolocking hubs for manuals (debating the Mile Markers at $100 vs. the Warn at ~$350), and doing some kind of lift.

    Well it's certainly kept me trapped on this forum for the past 2 years, despite not having a Nissan for quite a while now lol. Nobody's been naughty lately, my shackles and whips are getting dusty.

    Well, after probably a 10 year hiatus a came across this site again, after realizing that my ‘02 I had way back In the day would actually be getting a little long in the tooth if I still had it! And plus, I missed hearing all the Car50 jokes from the WD diehards . Not sure how many old timers are still around but if you are...HI! Lots has changed for me since I joined way back when...I roll around in a 2k13 4Runner, I have 2 young kiddos and I’m old Cheers!

    Honestly, just use TapaTalk. I can post from my phone with super ease. I do think I may have paid an extra bit for that but completely worth it. I haven’t worried about photos on any of my TapaTalk forums for years. Also, I would second the above comments regarding the FaceBook NPORA group - it’s not only not associated, it’s likely an intellectual property rights infringement on Mr. Jim’s creation. It’s a Wild West of often crazy & unsafe ideas & practices. Not only do I not refer people there, but as a matter of conscience, I give them warning. While IG is also not technically associated, it is much more reasonable- perhaps secondary to its format.

    Nope. That's a panhard rod. It provides the side to side location support of the axle to the body, so the axle doesn't go scampering off to the left or right. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    I actually just saw a Terrano for sale locally that had the brilliant white dash, was a very original car so perhaps they were fitted to the JDM cars (at least in the earlier years)?

    I believe the instrument cluster was the traditional Nissan orange in the 87-92 Pathfinder/pickup. I believe they changed to the white with the 93 model year. My 93 SE had the white from factory. The dual trip meters was found in the SE, and I believe the LE. One other fun things is the speedometer went from being a mechanical (cable driven) unit to an electric one in the 94 model year. The 93 was an odd duck in its gauge cluster was a one year only and just a little different than all the others. We lost the voltmeter, oil pressure and the fuel sub gauge that could be found in the older ones.

    That’s odd that you had to drive the hub onto the spindle. I remember to had to tap it with a small hammer a few times to center it but then i could shove the hub all the way back by hand. Maybe 5 pounds of shoving force was needed once it was centered. Got any panhard bracket pics?

    Felt like painting the last bit of my bumper brackets. I still need to grind a but to clear the radiator support. I have enough squeaking as it is already so I don't need more. I also am prepping for the 90A alternator swap. My 70 Amp pulley doesn't clear the alternator and will require me to shave the casing or the pulley where it necks down. I'll have to hold off on getting the 150A in for now. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk

    Thank you guys for the help! I went through the manuals and double checked everything and it all seemed to be where it was supposed to be and how it was supposed to be. Today I had some spare time and went down to the junkyard and got out another 4WD switcher from a 2004 LE Platinum and plugged it in to see if anything would happen,m and something did happen! The 4WD light no longer goes on once I switch from auto to 2WD and my dash indicator lights up properly as well when I'm switching through modes. I'm still quite skeptical if the 4WD engages or not, I'll have to test that out this weekend and let you guys know! Again thank you both for the responses, they've definitely helped a ton and I know more about my car now!

    A couple weeks ago I was able to strip down an R50 bought as a parts truck that was headed off to the JY that afternoon. Since I expect to have my truck another 10-15 years, some of this will be replacement parts if needed. I plan to use some of the trim pieces to experiment on where & how to place mounts & to attempt to reclaim some of wasted space in the body walls. Finally, it was a great opportunity to just dissect the interior & see what was under everything. I took a ton of reference photos for the future. You can imagine how excited my wife was when I came home....

    Took the truck home, swapped over the wheel/light bar from the Pathy and started cleaning everything, from de greasing the engine, washing it to carpets etc. also removed the driver side running board with your typical rusting. Considering the rust on it, the rocker panels were in good condition.Cleaned and Sprayed some fluid film) I had a set of non rusted running boards ready but they were silver so it needed to be painted.
