  1. The 90 is push button. I'm not sure on the difference in head's. I'll check that out when I tear them apart. I'm with you. Can't go wrong with levers. I guess that's just more wiring I can stow away with the new harness. Thanks for the link!
  2. Thanks for the info. I'll probably go ahead and yank the dash out and swap everything. I guess I should go ahead and swap out to the newer ac controls as well right? I need to get a fsm for a 90 auto model. There will be quite a few wires I don't need since I'll still be 5sp.
  3. It just seems to me that it would be easier to add in the additional wiring needed if I used the goods off a 90 model. There so similar minus the mpfi, electronic ac controls, and maybe a few other things. Couldn't you just re-pin the new ecu connector and add the extras needed?
  4. So I’ve been wanting to convert my tbi over to the mpfi. I’ve read everything I can possibly find on this subject. The usual talk is that it’s not worth the effort unless your going 3.3. But I have 3 4 door pathys in the back yard that all run. A 90, 94, and 95. All SE 4x4 autos. My 88 is a 5sp. My question is: Is it necessary to swap over the entire harness front to back? I know they disconnect in a few places but there a mess overall. I would hate to have to disconnect everything under the dash and everywhere else along the body. Is it possible without swapping the whole harness?
  5. Thanks. No the skid is separate from the bumper. The main winch mount is 1/4" and the rest is 3/16. I will get some better pics of the mounts. It was a pain in the a** to design the mounts. The factory bumper mounts would never hold this weight up. Plus with me having a body lift on it, I already had those crappy spacers on the factory bumper brackets that made it even more flimsy.
  6. Finally got around to building a front bumper. Rear bumper and sliders are next.
  7. I think I can get ahold of a complete 88 Auto for cheap. I think it has a ton of miles on it, so the trans might be toast but everything is there. The motor is shot in it.
  8. Thanks for the info. I'm wandering if it would be easier to use everything from a 88/89 Auto just for engine harness purposes. Alot of extra wiring would have to be done if I went with anything 90+ wouldn't it? Due to the mpfi of the later years?
  9. So if I got the ecu and wiring harnesses from a 88 Auto pathy, would any newer Auto trans (including the hd) be plug and play?
  10. Thanks for the info. I believe they switched to the 4sp in 88. If i did it i would want the 4 sp for OD purposes. I know some guys have swapped out there factory auto for one of the newer HD autos in the xterras (i think i cant remember what model they came in). I knew it would be quite the job to accomplish.
  11. Really contemplating on swapping out the 5 speed for an auto. I do alot of slow technical rock stuff and think i would enjoy an auto in place of the stick. I have been searching and cant find anything regarding a stick to auto swap. Ive seen people go from auto to stick. What are my options and what kind of electrical demons am i looking at?

  13. Went on another ride this past weekend at Hawk Pride Offroad park. Had a blast! Pathy did great. Still need some bumpstops, sliders, and a winch. Here is a short vid. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEGgc1Si96k
  14. Thanks man! Took the pathy out on another shakedown run this weekend. The dual's were awsome. Still need some limit straps and figure out some way to make some bump stops. I lost my power steering about 1/2 way up the mountain. The high pressure line developed a small crack in it. All in all it did great. Front/ rear bumpers, sliders, and skids are next. Here is a vid of some action. Of course the hill is quite a bit steeper than the video portrays. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjopOiJp55k
