  1. Not to mention they’re quite small for the modern American giant drink [emoji1787][emoji481] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Very good to know. Snagged a set of plastic OEMs from Pull-A-Part for like $20 a couple days ago, but I might try to find a glass set in the future. Thanks everybody for all the info! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Interesting, so they clearly did make OEM glass fogs. I see your truck is a 1997, which should have the same fogs as my '99.5 Pathy. I wonder if the glass ones were reserved for QX4s? Also, would you by any chance consider selling that glass set?
  4. Is that a Nismo badge I see? I had no idea that existed LOL
  5. Finally put in that fuel pump kill switch after weeks of procrastinating. Kill switch was sucessfully installed, however in the proccess I broke the overhead sunlgass compartment where I decided to put the switch. The hinge pins completely snapped off of the compartment door, and I can't quite figure out how to glue the peices back together whilst it's in position. Anybody know if there's any way to remove that whole overhead panel?
  6. Yeah, from what I understand, most ‘96-‘99 models have glass fogs. Unfortunately the ‘99.5 facelift integrated the fog lights into the bumper, so they are a completely different shape than the pre-facelift R50s. As for your LED upgrade, I would just replace the bulbs a opposed to the whole mountings. Assuming the glass lenses are thicker, you may also want to get thinner plastic lenses, but it all depends on how much you want to spend. If you do replace the mountings with plastic, make sure you don’t buy a cheap set like I did or they’ll be cracked and murky in a couple years. [emoji51] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Thank you Hawairish, I am fairly new to the Pathfinder community and do not understand too much about what did and did not come standard, as it was my father who bought the vehicle originally. I will admit to lying about a few things, but I will save that conversation for later as it is almost 1am where I live and I am very tired. But for the most part I myself am a bit confused on what all came standard with the truck and what was added on after the fact. Again, I’ll save this for later. I just want everybody to know that I am terribly sorry for all the drama and confusion I have caused. It’s great to know that the latter model R50s do have available glass fog lights. I will have to check eBay and local junkyards for a set. Thanks for setting it all straight and actually leaving a helpful comment as opposed to a hateful one. Have a great night, I hope to discuss some of this with everybody tomorrow when we’re all awake and fresh. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thank you for getting the topic back on track LOL. That’s good to know, I didn’t think Nissan made glass OEM fog lights for R50s, but now that I know I’ll have to probe around to see if they will fit. The installation was not terribly difficult. When it was time to work out the wiring, I got a bit lazy and just spliced them into the dash light fuse with a cheap little switch where the fog light wires split off. That way they still work with the headlight dial, but I don’t necessarily need to have my headlights on to use the fogs, I only need to have the dash lights on. Unfortunately the set of cheap plastic fog lights I bought three years ago or so when I did this were of a poor quality and cracked/aged very quickly, so last year I removed them and put the black plastic inserts back in. The wiring is all still there and I do miss having fog lights, so I wouldn’t be opposed to another, higher quality set of plastic lights, however glass would be preferred. Thanks for all that you do!

  9. Damn, I didn’t know those existed! But hey, you learn something new every day. I’ll continue my search for those! Thanks for letting me know. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Thanks man. Since everybody is intrigued (and quite passive-aggressive), I’ll share the whole story as to how I got all this from the dealer. So stay tuned... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Really? I didn’t think they made those. What model year is your Pathy? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks! If I can’t find a glass upgrade set and I just have to replace them with another set of plastics, so be it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. They didn’t make glass OEM fogs. I just wanted to know if anybody was aware of a third-party glass upgrade. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Yeah I know, I was just wondering if anybody knew any third-party glass upgrades. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Haha that’s an old photo. I got OEM fog lights about three years ago to replace the little plastic inserts, but those did NOT last long and now they’re aged beyond restoration. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
