  1. So, if anyone's still reading and interested...I finally got the Rugged Ridge style hubs that I bought off of Amazon, installed and all I can say is they are awesome! I installed them without incident a week before a road trip from Vancouver to San Diego and averaged 26.7 mpg on 89 grade gas, during the aprox. 2,800 mile trip, with a best mpg of 33.1. I also got 337 miles out of a tank after one fill up. This is a phenomenal gain as my mileage before the install was around 16 city / 22 hwy. They fit right through the center caps of my 17' LE wheels and there were no issues with the length of the stock studs. When the hubs are unlocked the 4x4 console light does come on intermittently, but I wouldn't call that a problem in light of the amazing gas mileage.
  2. Thanks! Glad to be here and finding lots of good info. I'll post some pics when I figure out how.
  3. That's what I'm thinking they are, and since they're about $100 cheaper than the RR branded ones I rhink I'll give them a try. Cheers!
  4. Thanks all for your responses. The RR's look like a good alternative to the Warns at a much better price point. My question above was really about whether the ones in the following link: https://www.amazon.com/Evan-Fischer-EVA48172045934-Locking-Manual-6-stud/dp/B009DK3D8O?ie=UTF8&keywords=Evan-Fischer%20EVA48172045934%20Locking%20Hub%20Set%20of%202%20Manual%20type%206-stud&qid=1464515855&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1 are just rebranded Rugged Ridges at a much lower price? One member here (shoesandsocks) had them on a '96 and '01 and seemed to like them. Opinions?
  5. Thought I'd start a new topic as well as the old dinosaur thread I replied to (http://www.nissanpathfinders.net/forum/topic/25855-locking-hub-install-with-pictures/page-8#entry776956) in hopes that I might get a faster response. Please feel free to respond to either. I just purchased a 2002 LE and would like to do the manual locking hub install, but have been seeing greatly varying prices online from $180 for the Rugged Ridge ones to about $89 for others on Amazon and Ebay. I've decided on getting the Rugged Ridge style hubs so that they will fit well with my 17" LE wheels, but there seem to be a few brands that look the same and which are up to $100 cheaper than the Rugged Ridge ones, but seem to be exactly the same. I'm assuming they've just been rebranded, some with the name tag and others without. http://www.amazon.co..._=sr_1_1&sr=8-1 http://www.ebay.com/...Q9WaiH5&vxp=mtr Would someone have some insight as to the quality of these hubs and if they are basically identical to the RR just rebranded? I see that at least one other member here has been using the style in my first link on a '98 and '01. Cheers!
  6. I know this is a zombie thread I'm resurrecting but hopefully someone sees it, lol The user I was referring to who installed the hubs was "Shoesandsocks" http://www.nissanpathfinders.net/forum/topic/25855-locking-hub-install-with-pictures/page-6
  7. Hi all, this will be one of my first posts as I've been just reading until now.

  8. Hi All, I've had a few Pathfinders over the years, a '93, '95 and currently daily driving a very strong running '97 Klondike edition with 346,000 km on the odo. I'm looking at picking up an '04 in the next few days to use as a daily driver while I slowly build my '97. Haven't done any serious offroading, but I like to get out on the backroads camping and exploring when I can. Looking forward to all the great info and build ideas to be found here. Cheers!
