  1. PM’d my contact info. Text or email me the general time frame you’re thinking & we’ll work something out. It would be nice to meet you & I’m happy to show you my truck & see yours.
  2. Probably okay since it was enclosed but the rear calipers on my Maxima froze up when it sat for a couple years with rare use - but that was outside in the harsh & varied weather of Kansas City. Just inspect & be careful regarding the brakes.
  3. Ditto on Spring Lift over spacers. Search up the LR Springs for the rear & either AC or OME for the front.@PathyDude17 did a nice little YouTube illustrating some of the suspension points.
  4. Great write up! I’m curious, what would you say is the ballpark cost of the retrofit (if you had to buy the lights - I realize you didn’t)?
  5. Ha, just yesterday I was just giving my $.02 on@TowndawgR50 trip & we settled on the area S of Oracle to camp the night before they go to Biosphere 2. My knowledge is largely 15+ yrs old now though.
  6. Ditto on literally ALL of this post!
  7. I’d grab a pair of X-Bull Recovery Boards on eBay. Right now they’re at a low of less than $60. Honestly, probably the single best gear innovation in 30 years.
  8. Condolences on your Father. I’m sure he’d be happy to know the truck is getting a new life with you. Ditto on[mention=37543]TowndawgR50[/mention] comments. I’m just down the road from you between Kirkland, Redmond & Woodinville. Curious where you got those aftermarket headlights? [Found your excellent write up http://www.nissanpathfinders.net/forum/topic/45416-headlight-retrofit/] Have an offline conversation with @jzuniga before you put spacers on - I don’t think he’d recommend it & I’d agree. On bumpers, Coastal Offroad is just above us in Vancouver. There are pros & cons to his bumper. I have one that you can look at in person if you’d like. Good job getting the power valve screws fixed. Don’t be in a hurry to pull those running boards. They’re pretty sturdy & very handy. We have several damaged doors & rocker panels on trucks without them. I’m finally replacing mine with RRO sliders but I’ve had the truck 106K, mostly stock, over almost all the big CO passes with no problem. You can see my truck & some of the other local guys on IG: raing0at, jzuniga510, grizzlypath & the PDX guys theblackpathfinder, stpickens, thesilverpathfinder. I have an 8yo boy (&10yo daughter) as well. WABDR is very accessible & fun.
  9. Same as@TowndawgR50 as well & I believe both@hawairish & Myself have those with the OME struts.
  10. The O2 sensors are probably the most common failure on these trucks. Luckily, it’s a 15-30” fix. Unplug the old one up top, zip tie the new one to the old one’s line, drop the sensor from above, & once you’ve attached the new one below, clip off the ends of the old one. I’ve done it a handful of times. BTW, don’t forget Bank 1 is the passenger side on these trucks.
  11. You are correct, I thought he recognized it or deduced it - Sherlock like!
  12. I don’t know how he got that? I’m a native Kansas Citian & also grew up in Dallas. I’ve filled with gas many times there and even looked at doing some of my training there.
  13. Ohh, I LOVE the LEGO wheels - truly a unique wheel & tough looking too!
