  1. Thank you. I'm no pro or have I ever done something like this before. It's a learning experience for sure.
  2. I originally added one piece in and then realized I forgot to keep the u joints in phase, so it was cut and put back together in phase.
  3. sleeved and extended the driveshaft about 3.5"
  4. dang.. it's weird because I can see them all. I haven't built the driveshaft yet, but I'm confident it won't bind. The front will more than likely get a CV joint by the axle and a cardan joint at the tcase.
  5. https://cdn1.imggmi.com/uploads/2019/6/10/1d3ad581e99065f9783a7a8d5cc1a959-full.jpg https://cdn1.imggmi.com/uploads/2019/6/10/8e7a0574374980022ff8daa0dfa84eca-full.jpg https://cdn1.imggmi.com/uploads/2019/6/10/8b62acef25ff0cd20e282a12847ebddc-full.jpg https://cdn1.imggmi.com/uploads/2019/6/10/c315a939290a129a069ee7ab8e938bf8-full.jpg Hopefully these work... What site do you use to make pics into a URL?
  6. slowly coming together.. put the tires on and rolled it around a little here is a side by side to 12" lift on the green r50 (35s). white is on 31s in the front here. still have lots to do here and there..
  7. Ended up going with spacers and longer coils. Maybe down the road ill switch it up. Got it back on the ground, but still lots to do: lower trailing arms, extend driveshaft, panhard bracket, brake line and a bunch of small things here and there. Rear bumpers is going soon after, going to make a rear bumper to add the carrier to.
  8. In central Florida I've seen 3. One the first time I saw one I thought it was custom made.
  9. Here is what I spent this afternoon doing. I mocked up the 3/16" brackets for the lower trailing arms. The bolts are in temporarily and they are just there to hold the bracket in position while I welded some of it in. Unfortunately, In the shed I'm working in, there is literally less than a foot on the side of the car, and it's not ideal to do work like that. These brackets are not done, nor fully installed. The plan is to box the brackets in, and once the rear end is done I can push the car out of the shed. Once out, I can get better access to the brackets and weld them in fully. Also, For anyone interested in installing longer trailing arms, the uppers from a jeep JK fit as extended uppers on the Pathfinder. The lowers, not so much...
  10. To be honest, I don't know much about the topic. I did use a link arm length calculator for the front (I have to admit I had no idea how the algorithm works, but I just did as was directed by the website). For the rear, I'm not worried about the links hitting the body. The links are essentially in the same location as originally, the rear end won't have crazy flex or anything so it should be fine (I hope lol). But, thanks for the suggestion, and I will keep an eye out for any hitting on the first tests.
  11. Yes of course! That is what I spent this afternoon doing. You beat me to it. This afternoon I mocked up the lower trailing arm drop brackets! I'll post pictures in a sec.
  12. Thank you! maybe something like this but with the actual perch lower down.. https://www.artecindustries.com/TJ_rear_coil Instead of bringing the upper trailing arm mount down, I'm bringing the mount on the axle up. The gas tank is seriously in the way for doing any sort of work up there and I do not want to lower the tank. The plan is to fill the front and back with another piece of 3/16 and burn them in to strengthen the bracket. Not my brightest idea, but it beats dropping the tank IMO.
