New r50 owner in Northern Central California


Recommended Posts

I've owned a 2003 Nissan Pathfinder Since early 2021. It has 200000 miles, its a full time 4wd. I occasionally will drive off road for a few hours. Here is what I have done to the r50 myself.

junkyard starter

junkyard Hankook 31 tires , 50% tread left on stock 17" wheels

junkyard tire carrier from 1997 r50 pathfinder

junkyard kyb struts with unknown strut mount

New  Landrover nr9448 lift springs in the rear, 4 inches of lift

New AC lift springs for the front, their website says 6 weeks to ship

New Bilstein 33-185569 30" rear shock absorber

junkyard 4.63 gear limited slip differential 2000 Nissan Xterra, Currently repacking with friction discs, friction plates, spring discs from 1995 Nissan Pathfinder LSD

junkyard 4.63 gear front differential from forgotten Nissan Pathfinder, not installed yet

spare parts junkyard steering rack, cv axles, alternator, power steering pump

 

need replacement instrument gauge due to fault fuel gauge meter. fuel guage sending unit tested ok.
My build plan - reinforced front and rear bumper, front lokka, manual locking hubs, larger tires 33"  or 35" on 16" wheels, rear lokka when available, cheap rear locker if I can find one.
