UPDATE - The host suffered a "Catastrophic Hardware Failure" (*specifics not shared) on 01/13 and the "latest available" backup for the website and database were restored. At this point they have been unable to recover any later versions of the database.
We are going to give them another 72hrs to pull off a miracle and find something later than 05/21 before we fully move forward with normal forum operations. Maybe we'll luck out, but to be perfectly honest, it's not looking good.
It is still recommended that new members wait to register for the time being, as any new accounts created before our final decision on a path forward is made, may not exist once this is taken care of. This is also true for new topics, posts, status updates, profile & account changes, etc.
As always, we appreciate your patience as ask that you hold on just a little longer.

Hi guys, I recently picked up an R50 2001 pathfinder (previously had three d21's over time). It came pretty much standard which I liked. It has slight hail damage, but as I want it to explore the desert, beach's and other places that didn't worry me. I started collecting parts for it even before I purchased it, much to my wife's dismay. Located an Arb Sahara bar $600au, warn hubs ($100au) and a set of ironman springs form $150 from gumtree (like Craig's list). Both springs and hubs were brand new as well. As the wife was tired of tripping over all the bits I bit the bullet and order a set of ultima shocks and struts and spent the last two days fitting it all. (If only fitting the springs were as easy as the hubs.) The only issue with the lift I have is it makes the wheels look small. As our road laws only allow a 50mm increase in height total through wheels, suspension etc I am stuck with the smaller wheels unless the springs settle a little more. Once I Finnish uploading the pics to photo bucket will put the before and afters up. Next on the build list is a set of draws, fridge slide and dual battery set up. (Fridge and dual battery kit already purchased, just waiting on the draws to fit it all in neatly. Down the track is the aim for a lokka and rear bar with tyre carrier.
