  2. Crap. I had my wallet in my hand, too. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  3. Now that would have been the @!*%, back in 98-99. Lol But this '22. I think I'm gonna need something just a little more rugged. Idk. Maybe wielding it my self ain't such a bad idea. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  4. Last week
  5. Not driven at night so cannot confirm those, but the radio blips off/on, and also dash lights as if starting up. So I suspected and checked battery connection. Think need to double check the grounding connection though. Thx for confirming my thought that the P0420 is not the issue. I've reset the code and will see it returns and replace the Bank1 sensors if needed. (Have them on hand)
  6. Does sound like a loose connection somewhere. Check battery terminals, fuse links. If the terminals are alright, try to work out which systems are affected when it acts up. Headlights? Radio? A group of affected circuits could lead you to a shared fuse/fuse link/ground. If it's losing everything at once, that points back at battery terminals or cables. Can you make it act up by wiggling wires while the truck is parked? And yeah, I doubt it's related to your P0420.
  7. Off topic for this thread but this seems to be what you are looking for - https://www.4wheelparts.com/p/arb-sahara-bar-black-3938040/_/R-BHWQ-3938040
  8. Yeah well, shipping assembled bumper would be painful. As far as I know they sell it ready to weld and can keep shipping cost relatively low, maybe if you came to their office in vancouver they could weld one up for you. I think that’s as high clearance as you can get for custom bumpers on r50 and they come with optional skid plate. Pricey but now after fabricating the racks I understand these things can’t be cheap Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I've checked out theirs. Not bad. Kinda close. Maybe not quite so hi of clearance. Keep the washer rez and breather box safe. Plus I dont like the round blinkers. Lol And most of all... Maaannnn!! I dont want to build my own. This ain't tinker toys. If I'm paying that type of money, I would think it should come ready to bolt up. Am I wrong? Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  10. Coastal off-road make great front bumpers and the r&d behind them is huge! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Ok, fine sir. Seeing the quality of the rack, and it is pretty. How about a bumper system, or a front bumper. Winch capable, bull bar, 6" LED blinkers, and I'd gladly pay $1500 for that. R50s need those, really, rilly, bad. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  12. Recently had alternator issue and since battery was 4-5 yrs old replaced at same time. (getting good voltage from battery and 14.1-5 from idle to 3k rpm) Engine code P0420 showing and plan to replace the O2 sensors (but don't this this is the cause). So periodically just cruising and not accelerating (mainly at freeway speeds), electricals power off for half a second then i get several lights tests on dash like when powering on. The engine power loss is not readily noticeable. Ideas before i also change the cat and exhaust. Regards
  13. I don't think they were metal screws from the factory, someone else probably got fed up and put them in there lol.
  14. I've never taken one of these clamshells off where the plastic wasn't either gone or well on its way, though to be fair that's a sample size of four. And, yeah, those plastic trim screws are the worst. After buggering a few of them I realized you've gotta use a flat-blade screwdriver with as little down force as possible. If it's slipping, hook a fingernail under the head as soon as it lifts. An early HB I scavenged had regular metal screws into plastic inserts, like how the front corner lamps mount, not sure why they moved away from that. Good luck with the bearings. If you still want to borrow that socket, I think the pass opened this week.
  15. Earlier
  16. @Slartibartfast I had a 95' D21 years ago that I was fanatical about turning the screws to the left until they clicked and then screwed them back in place. 12 years ago, that thing was in pristine condition. A lot, I would wager most, of the people do not know how to preserve plastic screw receptacles, as well as sheet metal screws. It's been a while, but the kickplates are not at all easy to take out without F-ing the screws up too. Not to be racist, but you must be ginger taking those out I'm not tall. Some would consider calling me under-average height. I have never hit my knee(s) on the column crash pad unless the seat was pushed all the way up for whatever random reason. All of the parts are in that I can get for the rear end and I'll follow up with any interesting results. Should be this weekend... ish... maybe... I have to get my motorcycle to get back on the road as well now that the weather is getting nicer.... and gas is still espensive...
  17. No need for this around here
  18. The column covers always do that. Weak brittle screw posts. Probably doesn't help that it's in a prime spot to get smacked by knees. Mine wasn't worth putting back on, so I made a metal one instead. It ain't pretty, but it's stout. Can't help with the fungus, that's nasty. Hopefully there isn't a great gob of that inside the switch.
  19. Coastal Offroad makes a weld it yourself kit that I believe is winch ready - https://www.coastaloffroad.com/product-category/1996-2004-pathfinder/ Other popular option would be ARB
  20. Anybody have a good line on front winch bumpers that will fit our rigs? Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  21. Disregard. I found it. This forum is not helpful at all.
  22. Hey guys looking for some bullshiiiiiet around here
  23. Thanks, I might have to hit you up on that if it proves to be terminal. It might take me a while to get there and figure out if I really need a replacement or not, as it's not exactly anywhere on my priority list.
  24. I really don't think it's the amp. If I put it in the intermittent position, and I gently tap it, it works once and every single time I tap it. My money is on that it's a weak spring or dirty contact internal to the switch. Again, If I could buy new, I would. I would also buy a new column crash pad since mine is being held in place by gravity. Someone over the years, snapped the screw posts that hold it together. I have had a white fungus grow inside this thing when it sits for an extended period of time in the moist winters we have here, and I think that may have fouled up the contacts. This fungus has appeared three time since I have owned it. Once when I was active duty and out to sea over the winter, and the past 2 winters when I developed the head gasket leak and most recently the rear brakes/axle @!*% themselves. What's really intriguing is that the individual dash lights would come on and off randomly after I got the heads fixed. It took a while, but they finally all stayed on after a week or so of driving it.
