Any off-road capability at all with my two wheel drive 1996 Pathfinder?

It's all a continuum. A Nissan Sentra has some off road ability, just not much.

I can't remember did 2wd of that vintage have LSD, or an option you got? That would help on loose ground.

Your 2wd would do OK on rocky and fairly flat terrain. You'd want to skip inclines that increase as they go up. Also be careful mudding or loose sand, I'd say don't do it. Anything that's real slick but can stick you up if the front wheels can't help pull you through. Hard pack sand would be fine.

And always have a recovery plan. Getting a cheap electric winch would be recommended if you plan to push it at all. And carry a shovel.

Sort of. I've wheeled on stock wheels and highway tires before. 90 percent of the time I was in 2wd. I'd stick to dry stuff and stay off really loose stuff like deep sand. If you do that, I think you'll find the traction a non-issue and your main obstacle will just be ground clearance for big rocks. If mods are your thing, the right lift, tires and a limited slip should outperform most stock 4wd rigs.
