I am a newbie to the NPORA forum. I hope to learn lots of good stuff from ya'll so I can mod my pathy.
I had an Xterra...but it was totaled when the drive shaft dropped, hit the ground and shot up through the floor of the vehicle while I going about 60 mph. Its set off all my airbags...and I had to change my shorts. After the Xterra, I went to a Jeep. I have had nothing but problems with them. I have had three..all were money pits. So finally, I wrote down my wish list....
minimum computer/electronic control
room in the back so I can sleep in it
easy to repair in the field
I ended up with a 1999 Nissan Pathfinder...and I love it. I have had it for 5 months and only had two problems. Both were known issues with I purchased it. First was my flex transmission hose burned through. It was an easy fix, once I figure out the issue. Then I had a real bad case of the "sway of death". This ended up being an easy fix too...did not realize how bad my tires were. The rear tires had separated causing wobbles each time I hit big bumps in the road. Once I put on new tires, it stopped the issue.
My goal is to mod my Pathy for off road trips. I want to add:
2 inch lift
metal front bumper with bull bar and winch
lots of lights
At this point, I am unsure if I want to put my accessories in the back or if I want to build a trailer for my accessories.
My first goal? Metal bumper with Winch and bull bar. If you know of where I can get one for a 99 Pathy, let me know....or if you have a design with measurements you are willing to share....that would be awesome.
Thank you for any advice or help you can give.
Have a great day!
