  1. Johann's rig is extensively modified, and his front brakes (his whole front axle actually) are from something else. If the caliper pistons are bigger, that'll be why he needed a bigger MC to match. Brake pedal feel and travel (assuming everything is in good shape) are determined by the ratio between the MC pistons and the brake caliper/wheel cylinder pistons, so if you modify one end of the system and not the other, you'll make the pedal harder/softer. On a stock rig, I'd go with a stock replacement.

  3. Wow, I have NOT been updating this. My life has been insane lately so I've mostly been lurking. Not a whole lot has changed with the rig other than a new basket-light set-up. The rest has been maintenance and using it! Met up with a bunch of the NPORA PNW guys and did an overnight near Mt. Adams- After that little shindig I decided I wanted to change up the basket lights. I built some custom brackets for the side lights, and then swapped in some round front fogs. I always liked the "classic" round fog look. Wind noise is up, probably eats at my minimal MPG, but it's fun for now. Went out with a buddy to play around in Tahuya ORV, about 20 min from my house. I've got lots of pics and vid, but I'm on a time crunch. I might add them later otherwise they're on my instagram @GrizzlyPath I basically have a 1/4 mile driveway so once a week the Pathfinder is the Trashfinder- Random- Testing the light set-up. Pretty good floodage and I love the side/rear lights. I may need a spot for forward though. The trails get dark. Always fun when you run into a stock one. If you want more misc pics/vids definitely scroll through my Instagram. You don't need an account to view on a computer, unsure about on a phone - GrizzlyPath Instagram

  4. I need to keep an eye out for a t-case skid plate, but on a lot of the vehicles it's hard to even see under there b/c they remove the wheels and set the vehicle on the ground

  6. Welcome back! Rig is looking good. I'm still torn on if I like the Xterra racks on those, but it does look like a clean install. I'm sad the Lego's are gone though. ?

  8. Lol, my rear muffler completely disconnected today due to rust. No real change in exhaust note, only reason I noticed was due to the think knocking around.

  9. Thank you for the responses. What I have found is that the bolts holding the fusible link to the battery terminal were pretty loose. I pulled them off and wire brushed it all. It has been good since then. The wires on the links seemed solid. I hope that is what it was. It’s a little unnerving because I haven’t found anything super wrong. Some times it’s nice to find that one thing that is clearly broken and fix it. But it has been running pretty good since then.

  10. Got myself some new tires. Cooper Discovery AT3 4S. They're really good on the road, minimal noise and fairly good dry grip. Do pretty well in the rain as well. Haven't really gotten to try them out in anything worse than packed sand so I can't really speak for the off road performance but I think it'll be pretty good for a road-biased A/T. Sidenote: Does anyone with an aftermarket bumper like the Coastal Offroad one have pictures of how it mounts? Designing my own bumper and I wanna see examples.

  11. So, an update. Do not try to use VQ Pathfinder Transmission on a VG engine. Blew it up after 8 miles. Put about 10mm spacer between bellhousing and transmission body. Stripped out the torque converter flats that mate to the input shaft. Got a used xterra transmission from a 2003 and it works great.

  12. If your R50 is suffering from the tachometer doing a crazy dance or not working at all I have the fix. Only pertains to 96 and 97 model Pathfinders QX4 and Terrano's as these are the only ones that use this style of tachometer. Remove the cluster clear face along with black shroud as one piece. On the backside of cluster there's a printed circuit. Remove the 4 screws that hold the tach in place. Once you have the tachometer removed on the backside of the tachometer where the four screws, screw into you will see 2 soldering points on each corner. Resolder each one of those points along with the four in the very middle that form into a diamond shape. It may take several attempts to resolder, but use a steady hand and take your time you shouldn't have any problems. There's a write up about this fix I found in Japanese. In that write up it said nothing about resoldering the diamond shape points in the middle. In my situation after several attempts of resoldering the 2 points on each corner and not fixing the tach, one time of resoldering the diamond middle it fixed my issue. I've included a pic of the newer style R50 tach just to show the difference. Didn't have a pic of the clusters printed circuit. Good luck NPORA members. Sent from my SM-S367VL using Tapatalk

  13. And of course had to take some post-200k pictures. Hitting 200,000 miles in hyalite canyon is definitely something I’m never going to forget. Such an awesome spot for it to happen Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. That ended up being it. One of the quick tappers I put on my marker light was pretty caked with mud so I just cleaned it off and hooked it back up and wrapped it in tape this time.

  15. Follow it up a little more and you can find two bolts. Id recommend finding a back section with no rust at a JY, and replacing it.
