  1. Hey all! Tried giving this a search but couldn’t come up with anything. Vehicle is a 2003 Chilkoot auto. A few months ago I had the ABS light come on. It’s been intermittently turning on and off since. Sometimes restarting the vehicle clears it sometimes it doesn’t. I took it to a shop a few weeks ago and they pulled codes 1 and 5, which according to their book doesn’t exist... They then took it for a drive around the lot with the scanner plugged in and said that all 4 wheel sensors were functioning normally. I continued to drive it for the following month and the light actually turned off for a number of weeks. A few days ago it came on again. Can’t seem to link it to any types of driving conditions etc. anybody have any experience with something like this? Maybe the ABS Controller? It’s also temporarily disabled the 4wd system in the past but that was solved by simply restarting the vehicle. Any thoughts/past experience would be really appreciated!

    WTB: R50 off-road bumper

    Giving this a bump!
  3. I’ve been watching this thread from afar since I bought my 03 R50 last spring. Awesome progress and I’ve only become more and more interested in purchasing the end product(s) when you decide to make them available. I’m most interested in a light weight winch bumper at the moment but I really like the looks of that rear as well! Im liking the idea of a road trip down to Arizona next spring
  4. If you end up mounting them please report back with pics [emoji16] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Subbed as I’m also looking at this tire size. Currently running 245/75/16 BFG KO2 on stock rims and have just a tiny bit of space under the strut. Thinking I’ll probably get a set of 4” BS Pro Comp Steelies regardless (so I can run chains during the winter), but curious to know if they’d fit without. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    WTB: R50 off-road bumper

    Hey all, I’m looking to buy an ARB or similar bumper for a 2003 Pathy, interested in custom built one options. Used or new. Long shot but I thought I’d throw this up here anyways I’m located in Vancouver BC but would be willing to drive and pickup (US ok)

    Water Prep

    Good to know! I think I read somewhere that the front breather was already located pretty high up in the engine bay. Is that why you only did the rear?

    Water Prep

    I too would be curious to hear others input on this, and specific breather kits that have worked well? Would also be interested to hear if anyone here has installed the R50 snorkel from 4x4 parts and what their experience with it has been. https://www.4x4parts.com/i-18980358-r50-pathfinder-snorkel.html

    If you came a across the part number that would be great! The series 51 are the wheels I’m looking at. Thanks for the info. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hey big fan of your truck! This thread has given me some valuable info. I might have missed it earlier in the thread but I was wondering if you had any issues with the 15" rims rubbing on your brake calipers. I've seen a few guys on here who have 15" wheels on their facelift R50's and it seems only some of them have rubbing issues. Do yours clear fine due to the backspacing?

    Also interested to hear people’s input on this as the RR ones are especially expensive if you live in Canada [emoji51] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No worries, thanks for your help!

    Spacers and OME MD Rear Springs

    Thanks for the quick reply! So far I am planning on only the springs. At what length do I need to start worrying about getting extended lines? I'm guessing the Bilsteins would probably require that? The extended ones I'm looking at are 5100 series part number #33-185552

    Spacers and OME MD Rear Springs

    Sorry to grave dig this thread, but I figured better than starting a new one. I just ordered OME springs (MD rear/HD front). I will be keeping my stock struts up front as they were recently replaced. I want to upgrade my rear shocks to mono tube ones (either Gas-a-just or 5100, as per many recommendations on this forum). My question is, what benefits do I get from upgrading to a longer shock such as the 5100? Would I be fine staying with stock length and going for the Gas-a-just? I saw many threads that touched on this but none that would give me hard answers on the pros and cons of either. Thanks in advance!
  15. Hey guys! Picked up a 2003 SE/Chilkoot a couple weeks ago, have recently begun doing some work to it including building a full size sleeper platform. Will maybe start a little build thread in the next week. This forum has been a massive source of info for me, it would have taken months to gather info compared to the few days of research I spent lurking trough all of your guys posts. Cheers! PS. Just got my new tires on today
