  1. Hi there thanks for having me. I'm stoked i found this forum.As I purchased my second pathfinder six months ago but my first 97 R50 Se 4x4 and I have decided to do mild build that I can daily drive and hit the trails afterwork and on the weekends. Murphy's law has it as I'm getting ready to do the lift on it, I get job offer back home in WA but have to be there by this coming Wednesday lol time crunch great. So I found myself using this forum as guest to answer my questions. In having found all my answers here I had to join to make life easier.thanks for having me here and I look forward to shooting the @!*% with other pathy enthusiasist.

  2. Well it's certainly kept me trapped on this forum for the past 2 years, despite not having a Nissan for quite a while now lol. Nobody's been naughty lately, my shackles and whips are getting dusty. ?

  3. This is still in progress. I will not let it leave my garage so it cannot get pushed aside for another decade... Small things, nothing worth documenting and One big thing! Nistune is coming to Pathfinder ECU's!!! Some of you may remember that I've been playing with Nistune on M30 ECU when I converted my 89 to fuel injection. In the coming month I should be playing with Nistune on a 1993 Pathfinder ECU. More to come in a separate thread when it does!

  5. I think your truck looks great man. Not too much rake at all IMO, but it’s all up to what you prefer. If it were me I’d just add some cargo to the back lol I was actually having the opposite issue with the 9447s, they were a tiny bit too soft and my cargo heavy so I was getting a negative rake and had to bump up to the 9449s

  6. Hello forum, I’m a 64 year old man planning on a crosscountry trip to the Twilight Zone. Pretty much going where the wind blows me and looking for some adventure. I’m retired but on a limited budget so hopefully I can resolve my issue with limited funds. I’ve gutted out the inside of my 2001 Nissan Pathfinder LE by taking out the rear and passenger seats, and have replaced them with a bed and cabinets, along with a luggage/cargo carrier on top. Problem is, my rear end is now sagging about 4-5” lower than the front end and the tires are within about 2”-3” from the wheel well. I need to pass over any bumps slowly and carefully or it feels as if I’m bottoming out. I’m hoping my new 255/65r16 (stock) tires I'll have mounted on Monday with help some, along with new heavy duty shocks (not sure what make yet), but I’m sure it will need much more to level this rig out. The GVWR limit is 5300 lb. (curb weight roughly 4000-4300), and currently, with myself and my dog as part of the valuable cargo, I’m at 5050 lb. (weighed at a truck stop big rig scale) So I’m 250 lb. below the weight limit, but it looks like I’m about 250 over the weight limit. I’ve consider upgrading to a heavier duty coil spring or airbags, but just not experienced enough to know what path to take? Other forums have recommended (to another member with similar issues) to try: OEM springs Monroe oe-spectrum shocks Rancho RS9000X adjustable shocks, p/n 999010 or 999116 Airlift air bags coil spring lift bumpstops 2" lift Bilstein 5100 series rear shocks Honestly, this is pretty much all Greek to me, but I have done some research and it appears the airbags can be done rather cheaply and within my budget, but the concept has me a bit concerned on their durability. New upgraded springs seems to be the best route, but more than I really want to pay at this time. 2” lift may be the answer as well, but once again, something I’ll probably need the pros to do for me. Right now I’m leaning to upgraded shocks and airbags, but I’m just not sure airbags with suffice. It’s important to note, most of my travels with be highway miles, but I’ll be boondocking as much as possible at each short term destination. So I’m guessing a fair ratio of highway to off road would be 30/1. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
