    Looks like somebody needs rock sliders!

    What did you do to your Pathfinder today?

    I like that. I always like having gear secured, but there's very few good options for the R50, especially if you have a rubber mat covering the tie downs in the floor, this is cool.

    July 2018 TotM Nominations

    Yes, sorry, that will be coming. When I first went to create it some of the moderator options I needed weren't available, and I guess I just haven't gotten around to it since. I'll try to do that now.

    mjotrainbrain's Build Thread

    I haven't really checked that forum out yet. I like technical stuff, so I'll have to.

    Single lift/jack points

    As Slartibartfast clarified, I was referring to the one between the control arms, sorry for the confusion. His explanation was good, I usually do what he said. Mine didn't have the skidplate when I got it, that cutout would definitely have tipped me off that that location was a good one (although I used it anyways).

    Single lift/jack points

    If you want to do both front wheels at the same time you could do the crossmember on the subframe, but I'd worry about slighly bending it; this may be reduced if you use a ~2' piece of wood to displace the load.

    I understand that VQ oil consumption is common, but I'd also like to say that mine didn't have the issue. Mine had 147k miles and never lost oil except one time when I pushed it really hard two days in a row.

    Rear Springs

    Gonna answer your question and address some confusion you seem to have. First of all, it's not a body lift, it's a suspension lift. You can't do a body lift on these vehicles since they're unibody. Secondly, longer struts would not help you with spacers, they would only be helpful with actual longer coils. However, longer struts do not exist for these vehicles unfortunately, best you can do is when the time comes to replace your struts get KYB (with OEM accessories). The rear is where longer shocks would help by giving more articulation, however they are not necessary. As a general word of advice, buy yourself a can or two of PB Blaster and make sure to liberally spray down all the bolts you'll need to be messing with daily leading up to the job so you can actually get those 15 year old bolts loose without having to break out the death wheel (angle grinder).

    TD27 Turbo has gone

    Possibly the best content available on YouTube! And yeah, I would take the turbo thing seriously. I don't know a lot about them, but I do know that if something goes really wrong they can do a lot of damage to an engine.
