    Auto block on 2003?

    To answer your question, yes you can install an LSD into an axle that didn't have one to begin with. Here's a link to Google search results from this forum (more user-friendly than the forum's built-in search feature) about swapping an LSD into a Pathfinder without one. WD21 Pathfinders have an extremely similar rear axle to the one in your R50, so even the search results about older trucks will be relevant. https://www.google.com/search?q=npora+lsd+swap+site:www.nissanpathfinders.net&amp;safe=strict&amp;rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS759US759&amp;sa=X&amp;ved=2ahUKEwi3r73Aw8PgAhVG1IMKHV43CNEQrQIoBDAAegQIBRAM&amp;biw=1536&amp;bih=723

    Mine were too, not fun. Mine were trashed though, so worth the difficulty! @02_Pathy how does it feel with the poly bushings?

    2002 R50 Pathy lift questions

    The links those guys posted are really useful, check em out for sure. To answer some of your concerns/questions directly, basically your friends are right. Spacer lifts cause issues with your suspension, and any bigger tires or offset wheels will add additional wear to various components. However, as long as you keep up on maintenance you shouldn't be concerned; those parts will still last a good long time unless you're absolutely flogging it on the trails every weekend. A 2" lift is generally regarded to be the safe upper limit for lift for the front end, however you can dabble with more by various means (pushing your luck, SFD, diff drop). You can get a 2" lift pretty simple with just some 2" lift coils from 4x4parts.com ("AC" coils). There is a decent variety of options available though, especially for the rear end. As far as tires, if you want to go bigger than 31" you'll need wheel spacers or new wheels with ~3.75" of backspacing to clear the strut. Welcome to NPORA!

    If @TowndawgR50 is involved with these parts this should be good! I have guesses ready.

    Ready for modification - 1998 LE

    As fast as the cupholders, I know some had a really big cup holder (fits a 1L Nalgene) up by the 4WD switch if it had an electronic transfer case. If you have a standard 4wd lever you may be out of luck for that though.

    Early sign of blown head gasket?

    That's a handy trick! Just make sure your neighbors don't see you holding a lighter under a spoon haha.
