    Transmission dying?

    Yes. There is a dry bay between the gearbox and the transfer case. A slip coupling connects the two.

    Transmission dying?

    I may be jumping ahead but, if you decide to rebuild the gearbox, it is much easier to pull the transfer case out first. The transfer case and transmission as an assembly is about a mile long and very heavy. I had to do it twice...
  3. Does the R51 have the same axle misalignment as the R50 when lifted? Particularly , in the rear?
  4. I have a 2 inch lift in the front of my truck to go with the LR springs.

    Brush Guard or Damage Multiplier

    They are damage multipliers. I had one on my Land Rover and I mainly used it to hold a wreath during the Christmas season.

    Vacuum Line To Nothing?

    Have you checked your gas cap? I had to replace mine (don't remember the code) and the one on my Mother's Avalon recently.

    2003 Nissan Pathfinder R50 Snorkel

    I am going to share my folly hoping for some help. I bought a snorkel for a Jeep Cherokee for my 1999 Pathfinder. The loft, windshield angle etc, was pretty close. My stopping point was, I had no place to fasten on the A pillar. The door wraps the A pillar so the project stopped there. How does one get the snorkel fastened to the A pillar?

    Roof Rack Cross bar replacement?

    I have a pair I pulled off my truck you can have for the shipping cost. Which may be substantial since I am in Atlanta, GA. Let me know if interested and I can see what it would take to get them to Vancouver.

    I love that rear bumper, simple and easy to fabricate. I am going to steal that design and add a spare carrier. I do not see a winch mount on the front. Am I missing something?

    Auto transmissions all bad?

    I am on the east coast in GA. I had quotes of $3000 to rebuild mine. This motivated me to do it myself.

    Auto transmissions all bad?

    $1100 to rebuild an automatic is insanely cheap. I rebuilt my own and had nearly that much in parts. One key to making one of these transmissions to live is adding an external cooler. I also added a thermostat so when cold the external cooler is bypassed. The transmission will not shift correctly when cold. you need to direct the fluid through the radiator to get some warmth first.

    I wish I had seen that video before I rebuilt my transmission. The ant rattle clip had be baffled for weeks. When I pulled the clutch pack the clip was just sitting in the bottom of the case and I had no idea where it came from.

    Tell me the difference between these two trucks. My tailgate is the same as the one on the left. I have a remote tag holder, will it fit on this gate?

    Very nice work. Can't wait to see the finished product and the kit.
