  1. This is an excellent write up! Planning to swap the LSD rear end from my totalled 02 LE into an 04LE with an open diff. This write it saved me much hassle. Thanks again fellas. Josh Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  2. Hey guys, I currently have my totalled 2002 LE which has the LSD rear end and many other goodies. I am looking at buying a mint condition 2004 LE platinum with 80K miles but it doesn't have an LSD and I only have enough cash to fit an ARB air locker in the front diff right now with all the other upgrades (winch, bumper, compressor, dual batteries, fluerys armour, UHF) etc that I am fitting in the expedition truck. How would i be able to tell if the 02 LSD is compatable with the 04? It should be a fairly easy swap if it just bolts right up. Cheers, Josh Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  3. Thank you very much hawairish. I really appreciate the advice. I'll talk my dad through the process and hopefully we can get it fixed. Warm regards, SPC Rave Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks for the info fellas, It's acting really weird, the actual alarm isn't going off. It's just the constant beeping tone inside the truck along with the red security light next to the drivers left knee stuck on. It won't lock with fob or the door switches so the key is the only option to manually lock each door individually. Is there prehaps a security ecm or relay that could be causing the issues? I can't imagine the vehicle ecm would cause this with out also causing many other problems, and the truck runs fine. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  5. Hey guys, Ill make this brief, Im currently deployed to Iraq and unable to assist my family whom collectively owns 3 pathfinder, an 02, 03 and 99. My dad who lives in michigan has the 99 which recently had a sunroof leak which dumped some water down from the ceiling, he patched it up with Silicone since he never uses the sunroof. However now his central locking will not work. whenever he leaves the car overnight the battery goes flat so he has to disconnect it. The little red security light stays on and the interior alarm constantly stays on with a continuous beep. He cant lock the doors with the remote or the button on drivers door. However the car recognizes the remote because he can set off the panic alarm and stop it with the remote. The truck starts and drives fine so immobilizer is not triggered, but he has to listen to the droning alarm the whole time he is driving and battery goes flat at work etc. Any help is sincerely appreciated since I'm in Iraq and cant directly troubleshoot the problem, His moron mechanic loves to throw parts at stuff and waste what little money he has lol. Regards, Specialist Rave US ARMY
  6. Thank you so much for this information. I have spent weeks digging for info on this exact install!! I have a 2004 Pathfinder I am building into an expedition truck to pull our offroad camper trailer 22,000 miles across America and Canada next year and the ARB distributer and ARB Australia both told me they couldn't guarantee that the bumper would fit because it's only listed as fitting 2000-2002 so it would be a one time non refundable sale. You have put my mind at ease!! Do you mind if I ask what which you run? I'm looking at a smittybilt X2O 12k LB winch. Are you able to send me a pic or 2 of the bumper installed. Did you paint it or leave it black??Kind regards, Josh Rave Joshuamrave@gmail.com Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  7. Hey guys, I am building an expedition pathy for a 22,000 miles trip across America and canada with our offroad trailer next year. I have a lot of parts on the wish list but most importantly is a winch bumper and winch. I want to install the ARB Sahara bumper PN: 3938020 but have been told by rocky road outfitters and several other distributers that this bumper will only fit 2000-2002 R50 Pathfinders which seems rediculous as I thought 2000-2004 R50s where identical minus a few cosmetic things?? I have found pictures and even mention of people installing this bumper on various R50s (pic below) but no one seems to know for sure. The distributer will sell me the bumper but it will be a non returnable/refundable one time sale as he can't guarantee it will fit. Does anyone have any input at all as to the differences between an 02 and 04 pathy or has anyone installed this bumper on any R50 before? Cheers, Josh Rave Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  8. Hey guys, I'm looking at a magnaflow for my 2002 R50 LE as well. I have a flowmaster 50 series Delta right now. Cats back straight to the muffler In place of the large stock muffler and then straight out the back. it sounds pretty good but was looking for a deeper sound hence the wish to switch up to a magnaflow. Let me know what you guys decide to do and maybe we can swap sounds videos or something. JR Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  9. Hey guys, I know this topic has been beat to death but I am reading some seriously differing opinions. I recently fitted an OME 1.75" lift HD springs to my 02 LE and am trying to order tires tonight. I want to go a size larger than the stock 245/65/17.... Does anyone know if 265/70/17 will fit with a 1.75" lift??? Thanks, Josh Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  10. Are you talking about a pathy with a lift or completely stock? I am installing an OME 1.75" lift tonight and would like to run the 255/65/17 size tire. Will that fit under my lift or will I need to go a touch smaller? Josh Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  11. Hey guys, I have been a Npora member for some time just came across this thread. I am using my 2002 LE R50 to pull our 2000lb off road pop-up around America with my fiance. It has Fully built motor, full OME suspension system and many other fun bits and I will be installing a large tranny cooler but I would like to also add an electric pusher fan to supplement the stock fan and cooling system. Is that possible??? i don't understand exactly why you would bother removing the stock fan except for the miniscule amount of power you might gain. Thanks for your advice, Josh Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks for the advice. I haven't heard or seen anything bad about them. I was aware that there is typically a 3-6 months wait but I heard that they make good products, I will look Into it more. Regards, Pvt. Rave Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks Kyle, I greatly appreciate. I went back and forth with my dealership and hanes repair manual and determined that it is in fact part of the sender itself. Regards, RAVE Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  14. Hi again guy, i finished the rebuild on my 02 pathy and she is running like brand new! Now i am working on my dad's 1999 pathy which is running rough and throwing codes for the knock sensor and fuel temp sensor. I know exactly where the knock sensor is and how to get at it but have received mixed info RE: the temp sensor, can anyone claify if it is part of the fuel sending unit or part of the pump itself or an individual sensor i can replace all by itself?? Thanks Pvt. Rave Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  15. These guys make awesome products! I am having a wincher and a multi carrier with swing away tire carrier and gas can mounts installed. https://tacticalarmorgroup.com/ Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
