    R50's are getting cheap - advice

    Thanks guys, That's a ton of info. I have yet to see a Pathfinder LE on KSL(Utah) or Craigslist with the TX14 - most seem to have the TX10. Automatic 4WD is a must for me as the GF will be commuting in a snow state. If it was an option, it must be a rare one. I also enjoy the QX4 dash and gauge cluster better. Nicer leather too, and real wood as well if IIRC. Really interesting R50 didn't come with skid plates, my WD21 had a full set from the factory, and they were USED. Stout and i never saw a reason to replace them. I could do a late 2003-2004 Pathfinder, but they are actually not that plentiful, and of course R51's are not THAT much more expensive and have me going hmmm.....maybe i should go R51. Small back seat though if IIRC and of course IRS. But VQ40DE,full frame, 5 speed etc etc.... I've already had a N40 (Xterra), don't really want another one but they do fit the bill as well. You can see a lot of "IIRC's" here as its been a few years unfortunately....I've been in into Ford 1 ton diesels....very unreliable BTW, stick with Nissan, LOL! The hunt continues, thanks for the info!
  2. Hey Guys, After owning 2 D40's, 1 N50, and finally a WD21 - I sold them all and traveled the country for a couple of years. Well I'm back and need a car. Noticing that R50 is getting quite cheap. And I dont really want another WD21....Homing on a QX4, because why NOT get a Pathfinder in a Tuxedo? Anything I need to know? Looking at high mileage 2001+ VQ35DE's - 150k-180k. Its been long enough now that I don't know as much as I used to. AFAIK I know I am looking at VQ35DE - Cam phasers were an issue if I recall? RE4R01A - Not worried about it Automatic Transfer - QX4s come with the auto shift t-case - any major issues? TX10A maybe? These were really not an issue in the 2005+ Frontier/Pathfinder/Xterra but they were TX15's IIRC. I'm looking at a 2001 fully auto one, not the earlier hybrid half auto half manual ones. R200A - I know all about it HB233b - weak clutch packs.... I do remember something about a 5th cross member that could be bolted on. Do the QX4s come with skid plates? Thanks Gents!

    1994 Strut Rod Bushings/Rods - Ouchie.

    I was hoping to drive the pathy around 1800 miles round trip and do some offroading in MOAB over the next couple weeks.... Front end was a little loose - I knew this, the bushings looked a bit chewed so the plan this weekend was replace all the bushings. I dont think they are going to cut it Looks like I'm taking the corolla and renting a jeep in MOAB!

    Yay Front End Rebuild time

    Perfect. thanks. I bought a set at one time but apparently they have worn. It was a group buy long ago...they emailed back and said they'd look for a pin for me. Awesome.

    Yay Front End Rebuild time

    Oh man here we go (again, and again, and again). I just dumped a $#^*@ of money into this IFS last year....replaced all the TREs and didnt replace the centerlink TRE's of course... Time for: CV Boots - Lifetime warranty FTW Upper balljoints - Lifetime warranty FTW Calimini TRE (inner passenger) Calimini Centerlink TREs Calmini Idler arm Bushings Warn hub rebuild. Squeaky Upper A-Arm bushings That pesky ARB air locker... Questions: I can get the Calmini stuff no problem with the exception of the Idler Arm Bushings. Does anyone remember who was selling those? I need a new set. I know someone did a batch run. Calmini says no parts, just the entire arm for $350. F THAT. Also - My Warn hubs need help, snap rings, etc. I think we run 29091's? 4x4 parts only has their part number Service kit 29061. LMK. I have squeaking coming from one of my hubs. Odd. Squeaky upper a-arms. 4x4parts again, no Zerks? How do I lube em? Thanks guys! Mike
  8. This is crazy to me. I drove pre-production D40's and had one in early 05...closer to 9 years ago. WOW. (also had an 07)

    Highlift Mounts

    Does it clear the wiper? I couldn't get mine to clear the wiper with the stock tire on. I now have mine mounted vertically on the right (hinge) side.
