  1. Yeah it’s kinda funny how they managed to make it the suspension simultaneously so squishy and yet also harsh. My girlfriend has a 99 limited and the rear always sags under any decent weight, but at the same time it’s not comfortable on bumps either. For people who think unibody trucks are crap off-road, they need to take a look at XJs. I do wish the pathfinder came stock with longer travel IFS, but I don’t mind the unibody
  2. Awesome video, glad he made it. I hope RCR sees it and possibly reviews the 3rd gen 4runner soon. I guarantee he’ll be mentioning the pathfinder favorably when he feels how badly those things ride on the road, and how under powered they are in comparison.
  3. Redesigned the bumper tubing and finally added the rally lights. Super stoked right now
  4. Your rotors are original? How many miles? Original post says 220K...... If that’s true I want to know where you source the adamantium rotors and marshmellow pads
  5. I’m pretty sure thats the hose going from the tank to the fuel filter. It’s possible you have a small crack in it thats hard to see and it’s leaking. Definitely try to get a new piece of hose and new clamps to see if that fixes it. Im also wondering if it might be possible your fuel filter is badly clogged and increasing the pressure on the line? But you’d probably have fuel starvation issues if it was clogged to that point
  6. Normally he is more in depth with the reviews, I’m thinking he just has something against the R50. It’s pretty unusual to find one of his reviews where he doesn’t bother to dig into the history or character of the car. This one felt like he took a definitive stance from the beginning and stuck with it rather than weighing each factor individually. But then again his reviews are not really supposed to mean a whole lot, they mainly exist for comedic purposes. Sometimes they’re great, sometimes they fall flat. It’s mainly the cars that he has personal experience with that he gives good reviews, and the other ones he just goes off of a first overall impression and stupid voices to get a laugh. When I first got mine I remember it wasn’t exactly super exciting coming from a small red audi, but the pathys really grow on you the more you use them and modify them. You have to own one to understand I guess
  7. He ripped on it! I was actually coming here to post this vid since it just popped up in my YouTube feed Im surprised he came down so hard on the r50 but not the 4th gen runner, being that they are so similar in style and purpose. I don’t disagree that theyre a bit boring before modifications, but I’m not sure how he concluded it was more boring than any other car in the world?
  8. Interesting! I never would have guessed that was its purpose Still, with the full size spare already blocking my back glass, dust doesn’t matter a whole lot haha
  9. Yeah I couldn’t care less about the functionality, I don’t see myself needing a spoiler for my style of driving this truck. It happened to come with this particular hatch and I like the look better so it’s a win win
  10. I did have to scoot the rack forward by about 2 inches to accommodate the spoiler
  11. Well she’s officially an SE now. New hatch went on last night Just a heads up to anybody doing this in the future, the connectors from the truck to hatch are NOT identical. The donor truck was a 97 SE, and only two of the three connectors were the same. The third one from the truck is brown and it doesn’t match the hatch. There’s two main sections of wiring, the one that goes from the truck into the hatch, and the one that goes from the hatch wiring to each of the electrical components. Turns out one of the connectors between these two sets of wires is also different so I ended up needing to pull ALL of the wiring from the old hatch all the way to each individual electrical component and by some miracle all of them had the correct connectors to match up to the wiring harness from the original hatch. The latch was a bit rusty but with a bit of WD-40 it works perfectly and still locks up with the doors. I just need to swap the lock cylinder from my old hatch so that the back glass is accessable, but I ran out of time last night. It was 3am and raining hard In other news, I’ve been making an aluminum bracket for the rally lights but I’m running into fitment issues so it’ll be a while before they go on. The problem is the housing is interfering with the rack since the included mounts put them too high. I would need mounting tabs below the bottom of the rack for it to sit properly between the top and bottom of the rack. I’ll figure something out
  12. Junk yard scores! Found a silver hatch from an SE in great shape that even has the spoiler that I’ve always wanted. Paint still looks awesome except for one tiny rust spot. It came off of a 97 I believe, so I’m hoping the pre and post facelift hatches are interchangeable. They look to be, but I guess I’ll find out when I put it on. The spoiler will probably require relocation of the axe I have on the back of the rack, but that’s alright I also found another donor truck with the same interior trim color that had the overhead dome light assembly, so I swapped mine out. No more ugly holes from the previous switches. The same truck had two Yakima crossbars with ski clamps so I grabbed them as well, for $20 you can’t beat it. I’ll clean them up and they’ll be awesome for next season. The bars fit in the tracks and between the bars of my rack and hold the skis high enough that they clear the rack bars I won’t be able to install the hatch for a while since I’ll need to enlist a friend to help me lift it into position. In the mean time I’m putting a set of round rally lights on the front of the rack since I can’t get the original light bar to stop whistling and I’m not content with the output from just the smaller pods I’ve got on there right now. Plus I think the round styling will go better with the aesthetic of the rack. They’re off of Amazon and they aren’t a big name brand but supposedly they’re very focused beams so theyll reach further and won’t scatter the light a bunch. I can then move the pods to the side of the rack for lighting the surroundings if necessary
  13. Maybe check the front differential mount bushings?
  14. I would look around for the various small support brackets in your engine bay to see if they are loose, could be the cause of the noise
  15. Im honestly not sure, your best bet is probably to look up some YouTube examples and compare
