Looking for Southern California group

Recommended Posts

Hello had my pathfinder for a few months now. I've done a little bit of work but previous owner was a skilled ASE mechanic and already had this thing basically restored about 80% and I just lucked out on being right place right time to get this beauty. Work done on this is replaced engine to a clean 2001 nissan exterra with 70k miles and had it cleaned out looks great along with interior redone and air lift for towing along with a nice gauge cluster also just replaced the clutch and shocks still have a few more things I want to beef up before I get to crazy offroading but for the most part it's in great condition and I'm just trying to meet other pathy enthusiasts in socal also if anyone know any place that can fabricate a custom roof rack or of any low profile roof racks out there that can fit this model that would be a great help thanks in advance

Hi Micfly, 

I just picked up a 2001 QX4 with 173K miles in January and have been modding it since. I'm located in Tustin, CA and have also been trying to find people enthusiasts in the area. I am unsure if the roof rails on the Pathy are the same but I found a solution that I saw another owner do somewhere. I removed the factory roof bars and the washers inside the rails. I used bolts to to go through the bottom of those washers and then slid them down the rails evenly on both sides. I then picked up 8 conduit hangars from local hardware store. I placed the hangars with opening facing upwards and then used nuts to tighten them to the rails. You should have 4 clasps on each side running down the car. I bought the ROLA roof rack which turns out is exactly the same width as roof rails on the QX4. From there, you just bolt the cups of the conduit hangars shut. It's surprisingly solid and i've used my entire weight tugging on the roof rack and it moves the entire car as though it was one piece. let me know, i'd be more than happy to show you what i've done.
