another FNG in Colorado

Recommended Posts

Just bought a 1994 Pathfinder off craigslist on a tow title for $1000. Rust free frame! Mostly stock -- appears to have been originally sold by a dealer in Puerto Rico. Appears to be a solid truck - just needs a bit of care to make it a reliable DD and weekend fun truck.

Thanks for the welcome.

 

Been chasing down small issues and doing a little parts gathering.

 

Replaced the instrument cluster - original one had a horrific "glow" overlay that didn't work - couldn't read the gauges at night. It also fixed the "sticky" speedo issue at the same time. While I pulling out the rats nest of wiring that went with the gauge overlay, yanked out the "glow" pedal covers too.

 

Added a console armrest extension pulled from the junkyard at the same time as the instruments. Also scored a pair of .590" JGC springs while there. A set of 16" Xterra rims from Craigslist are waiting for a set of 245/75 16's or 265/75 16's -- from Craigslist of course - just waiting for another really good deal.

You learn (and move) fast. That's a nice change... :beer:

 

When you put the rear springs in, you might be able to do it simply by disconnecting the shocks and sway bar, supporting the pathy by the frame (fairly high) and articulating the rear axle with a jack. You might want to take the tires off as well, and watch your brake lines...

Before you install, I recommend measuring all 4 corners to the body crease, then after. That way you know how much lift you achieved, if you are level, if your front went up or down, etc.

Thanks for the tips. Hoping to get the lift done soon - need time and WX to come together at the same time -- working in the driveway in Colorado!

 

Want to get under the front first and see how much I left in the T bars - or see if they will need to be-indexed before doing the rear springs. Front has sagged enough to cause camber problems with the tires that were on it.
