  1. One thing to note: Depending on the width of your tent, you might run into issues with the bolts that come up through the load bar interfering with the base. Luckily my tent had grooves in it that I was able to line up the bolts to as my tent is very wide.
  2. You could definitely do a cleaner job than me, I was doing mine in a rush before a trip with very limited tools/metal working knowledge
  3. As far as I know, no one makes a proper roof rack for the R50 other than some simple cross bar setups. I made low profile cross bars out of old Thule square load bars using the method that Stioc listed here: I had to put around an inch of aluminum between the bottom of the bar and the mounting feet to allow enough room to fit my hand under the bars to tighten the tents bolts (it was still pretty tight!). I had a Thule roof rack setup with the correct podium mounts for the crossbars but I found this method to be much more secure, plus it looks better and lowers my center of gravity. I can snap some photos if you're interested in seeing my final result.
  4. Jeez that’s rough, thanks for the heads up man
  5. Just to clarify, these are the adhesive ones not the in channel ones? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. For those of you who have extended your bump stops, how did you go about doing that? Just washers and longer bolts or?
  7. Retro photoshoot while on a camping trip last weekend
  8. Hey all, Anybody have experience with these wheel spacers? They seem to be of decent quality and they currently have a sale for 12% off. https://supremesuspensions.com/collections/all/products/1985-2004-nissan-pathfinder-wheel-spacers-w-o-lip-2wd-4wd?variant=21398727884880 Anybody have any other brands they can recommend? Seems like quite a few people are running spacers but don't mention what brand.
  9. Damn! What are you running in the front?
  10. I'm a little confused, are the swing gate kits going to be everything you need to install a tire carrier? Or just parts to adapt a JY OEM tire carrier to a Pathy that didn't come with the OEM one?
  11. You bet, I would also keep your eyes peeled for a bumper from @hawairish and @TowndawgR50 thats supposed to be coming soon. They're planning on releasing a bunch of R50 specific products very shortly. More deets here:
  12. How are you finding the ride quality of the 9449 when unloaded in comparison to the OME?
  13. Too expensive to ship the LR springs over here so they’re up for grabs!
  14. Fedex.com has a great shipping calculator
  15. I’d love those 9448! I’ll PM you Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
