  1. I meant single cardan. One u joint at each end. Pinion relatively flat, parallel to transfer case output.
  2. I am on my second nissan SASd rig, and both had low pinion 44s and neither used a double cardan shaft. I've never had an issue with slip yoke length nor yokes binding. I like using the first gen xterra shafts. As to which axle to run, I'd go with the F150 axle, only because it's full width. Staying narrow never appealed to me personally. Finally, I'd do a true 4 link in the rear. A panhard bar adds complexity and causes a bit of rear stead that isn't necessary if you triangulate the ; links properly.
  3. I haven't been on here in a while, but thought I'd post a pic from our first wheeling trip last weekend. This is a climb at Golden Mountain Park in Sparta,Tennessee. I was pleased with how the rig did. Hopefully now that I've gotten my wife and little one out in the woods, we'll start going more often.
  4. Are you going to have to cut the front output off the front case and do a filler plate? I've seen it done with NP231/241 and BW cases so I imagine it can be done with the tx10 too
  5. I think they used it as they stated it was built for: as a camera/chase truck. It went places, but was never used as a wheeler. I know it had mud in crazy places and scratches all over the paint. They just left the door wide open to make it better; nobody took time to tune it properly .
  6. 14 bolt front and forget it. Cheap, hell no - the last axle you'll ever need? Oh yeah!
  7. Hmm. I have been into them for a long time. I used to own a SASd frontier maybe 6 years ago, then parted it out to build a pathfinder buggyish thing that was scrapped because it was too rusty to be worth the effort. I then built a samurai based buggy that I found was just a huge lawn ornament 95% of the time. I parted it out and sat on a dream to build a maroon 1995 5 speed pathinder, when low and behold, I found the one I own now. Anyway, I mentioned Labor Day at WITC to the wife and she likes the idea.
  8. Did I sell you some wheel spacers a few years back? When I parted out my frontier I sold some to a guy somewhere off of 231 who drove a champaign pathfinder. Keep an eye out for me. I'll be mall crawling down to shelbvul for a wedding tomorrow.
  9. Might have to. I've actually not had it out wheelin' yet. I have driven it as far away as Atlanta. Where do you live?
  10. Did a little fender trimming tonight: Should clear 37s just fine when the time comes.
  11. I guess I jumped the gun posting this. It's an 18x26 cookie sheet. It should fit our radiators well with some persuasion. I found that you can get 1" core radiators for the pathfinder, so I'm going to pick one up and do the swap then. Ironically, it's too dang hot out to do it now.
  12. Sure was! Can't wait to do it again some day. On to my next project. The pathfinder came with a decent electric fan (not sure what it's from but it looks like a single speed version of the big taurus fan people use), but no shroud. It's just mounted right to the radiator. The wiring is good and it's tied to the ac circuit, but it gets hot. I added water-wetted and it helped but I need a proper shroud. Look what the brown Santa just delivered from Amazon: $14.99 and it's just a touch too big so there's room to cut it down to fit.
  13. Barry! Remember me? I drove the maroon frontier to Moab a few years back. I sure remember you: Barry: What are you doing? Some guy: Stacking rocks. Barry: I'm just gonna drive around 'em.
  14. Today I replaced the old busted console, with the lid that stayed open so you rested your arm on sharp plastic. The one I picked up is from a 2001 isuzu rodeo. I had to rework the e brake handle. I raised it about an inch and welded it to the floor plate about 1.5" off center. This console feels great on the elbow and has cup holders! It just took a long time to figure out mounting.
