  • Your Pathfinder Info
    Basics: 1988 Nissan Pathfinder SE-V6 4x4 5Spd, 430,000+ Miles.Background Info: I originally purchased this truck in December of 2001, but held off on doing any modifications, for the most part due to the many problems I had with it early on… such as vary poor performance that ended in the truck being completely un-drivable. This was corrected with the replacement of the ECU (which was the root of most of my problems). Soon after that was repaired a broken Camshaft gave me quite the headache, but I luckily came out of that with minimal damage. This was followed by both keyways in the crankshaft rounding out, which led to a new(used) engine.Engine: Performance camshafts, Dual Oil Filter Relocation Kit. The engine was replaced with a used unit (131K) at 291K when both crankshaft keyways rounded out on the original. And this was after the right hand camshaft broke around 270-280K. Waiting on Install: Headers Drivetrain:WARN Premium Manual Hubs, Nissan Hardbody transfer case shift lever (to compensate for the 3in Body Lift). Waiting on Install: LockRight Rear locker, 4.6 in Rear Diff. Convertion to Rear Disk Brakes, Front Diff with 4.6 R&PSuspension: Superlift UCA's, JGC Coils (approx 3in Lift), Sway-a-Way Torsion Bars, ProComp ES3000's, Energy Suspension coil spring isolators/spacers.Steering: Upgraded TK1 Style Centerlink (fixed by Trailchaser since Phil Dawkins of L&P Performance refused to replaced the life endangering Centerlink which he supplied me with) Double Shear Pitman and Idler Arms, Idler Arm Brace. Steering Stabilizer.Body: Performance Accessories 3in Body Lift, Custom Roof rack (adapted Chevy S10 Blazer rack), Ventshade vent visors, Deer dent behind drivers door... and a dent "in" the deer by the ARB *grin* Thule Roof Rack/Cargo Basket. Waiting on Install: Factory Fender Flares, Xterra Roof RackElectrical & Lighting: 110AMP (Quest/Villager) Alternator. JVC HDR1 High Definition Radio/CD Deck, Overhead DVD system, Navigon 2100 MAX GPS, 1100 watt power inverter and a Cobra 25LTD Classic, Rear High Mount Speakers from a '94, nothing really special yet in the speaker departments. And a pair of PIAA Fog Lamps on the front of the ARB. 5-6 100watt Offroad Lamps. Waiting on install: Two 55watt Rear Facing Lamps for the Thule Basket.Tires/Wheels: 33x10.50 BFG Mud Terrain KM2's on Ultra 589 15x8 wheels.Armor/Recovery: ARB BullBar, HiLift, 12.5K T-Max Winch, recovery straps, portable shovel, axe, First Aid kit, dual tow hooks, etc.Interior: Rear Belts w/Shoulder Harness from a '94, '95 Center Console w/tall arm rest, rear floor ducts for the climate control.-------------------------------------------------------Did I mention that Phil Dawkins of L&P Performance built and sent me a Centerlink that seems to have been made to endanger my life??? And that he has refused (by ignoring all my attempts at contacting him) to correct the situation by sending me a properly made Centerlink or reimbursing me for the costs involved in having it properly fixed... did I also forget to mention that this has been going on for well over a year now???Can you guess what my opinion of such a stand up business man and all around great guy Phil Dawkins might be???Contact Phil Dawkins @ 217-351-8316 and ask him why he has not corrected this situation and why he would endanger my life, my kid’s lives and the lives of those around me by building such a poor product and then actually sending it to me thinking that I am some idiot customer who blindly installs anything I get (Phil, I look at EVERYTHING before I install it, I will not install anything that is questionable to me before making sure that it is safe.. and everyone agreed that the CL you build was NOT even close to safe!!)If you get an answer from him, please let me know, because he sure as hell will not answer those questions for me!Pictures of the Centerlink in question, along with the story can be found here: http://www.nissanpathfinders.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=14730

  1. Welcome to NPORA Forums Pathy1996! I've moved your post to the R50 section to try and give it more exposure. Consider making a new post in the new members section to introduce yourself.
  2. Forum was offline for less than 60 seconds for a minor software update.
  3. Does it work well for you? Have you had any problems and would you do anything differently if done again? BTW there's no issue with reviving old posts. Honestly it helps keep related info together
  4. It's been quite insane, 'cuz, ya know, every1 needz der internetz!!! Only if you never visit the NPORA Home Page
  5. You are correct, but it's been a long while since I've updated and added new ones. May still be a bit, I'll try and let you know when I start doing it once again. Also, I see you sent a PM a while ago. My apologies for not responding, I honestly didn't even see it as I have been slammed at work during the shutdowns.
  6. "Essential Worker" here... whatever that means.... Work hours up SUBSTANTIALLY, personal life, in any and all fashion, pretty much non-existent at this point... if either of those scenarios are even possible! I believe there are a few cases within the county, more one county over, including Veteran's Home deaths.
  7. Good job! I am going to have to do this on my drivers door again to my 88. Seems the aftermarket pins did not last as long as the factory ones..
  8. I'd give them a call, but as mentioned several times here on NPORA tell them you have a Hardbody and do not mention the word "Pathfinder" They used to be willing to sell the arms separately and directly. If they still offer them (probably in a leaf sprung Hardbody kit) they may still sell them alone if you ask nicely *don't forget to ask for the bushings and hardware as well! If not, then as @FirstGenFreak mentioned, you can go with Superlift arms (same thing, different finish)
  9. That's what I figured you were talking about. An Xterra rack, people have been putting them on WD21's for a long time now. I actually have one in the garage that I have never got around to installing. It's meant to replace the S10 rack I originally installed, and currently still have, on my '88.
  10. Forum was offline for less than 60 seconds for a minor software update.
  11. This thread may be of help, this of course kinda assumes that its a mirror image to the LHD models... https://forums.nicoclub.com/how-to-replace-cabin-air-filter-t440515.html
  12. I bought a cheap Bluetooth adapter years ago and used Torque (as mentioned above by @jjmwilkinson) Still use both of them to this day. It's proven to be very reliable and great for basic OBDII code reading. In addition to giving real-time information. The Adapter is actually plugged into my cars OBDII port full time. but note that I use these with Android, so YMMV. I remember when I was researching these things that iOS had compatibility issues with BT devices IIRC.. wasn't my focus so I don't remember exactly. But I see the one linked by @XPLORx4 uses WiFi, his word is good enough to trust in it, but if you look at other devices do your research to make sure they will work with your iOS version and device.
