  1. Chris, I cannot email you without getting delivery failure repeatedly. And I cannot figure out how to DM you on this forum using my phone. I will not have access to a laptop for several days. Can you email me an alternate way to send you my mailing info? Robert
  2. Same thing just happened to me! I also have the SE roof rack with the fairing like the OP mentioned. Apparently the front passenger side end cap flew off while I was driving. Anyone happen to have an extra one of those I could buy?
  3. Has anyone done this on a facelifted R50 Pathfinder? I can't seem to find it anywhere. I am thinking of doing the "viper" cut on mine. Thanks.
  4. I, too, would like to know which brand of spring you used in the rear that sagged so quickly. I am going to buy springs soon and want to avoid what you used.
  5. Which coil springs did you end up using? Ironman? Can you provide pics of your Pathy so I can see how it sits with the new suspension?
  6. Just an update in case anyone is helped by this. I ended up having 2 bad fuel injectors. So I replaced them all with Hitachi injectors and all is great now. I also ended up doing the upper plenum coolant delete. The engine runs awesome now.
  7. Quick update. I ended up ordering a complete rear axle from a 2001 Xterra 4WD with an LSD Diff. and 4.63 gears and 98K miles on it. I removed the third member and swapped it out with my open diff. It was a bit of a job, especially removing and replacing the third members as they are quite heavy. Thankfully I had 2 other sets of hands to help. So far it seems to work great. I haven't really had a chance to test it thoroughly but I plan to soon. Thanks again for all the input!
  8. Thanks! Do you have a link to the FB group where one was made to fit?
  9. I saw this roof rack fairing with the 2 lights integrated into it for the 2nd gen Xterra. Anyone know if something like this was made for the R50? I have been looking but no luck.
  10. Can the back glass be opened with the tire carrier in the closed position?
  11. I am going to focus on the '01-'02 Frontiers and '00-'02 Xterras. Those would be plenty ideal for my purposes. Maybe a dumb question, but was the LSD a factory option in the 2WD models?
  12. Thank you all! I had read an old post on Nico club describing the breakaway torque depending on years. Looks like the Xterra from '00-'02 and Frontier from '01-'02 with LSD are my best bet for higher torque. But I will settle for '96-'02 Pathy. Especially since finding exactly what I want will be slim. Much appreciated.
  13. Looking for a little clarification. I have a 1999.5 4WD automatic Pathfinder with NO LSD in the rear axle. It is an HG46 axle. I am considering swapping the third member with one that has LSD. From what I can tell, my best choices (higher break-away torque) for a donor with LSD are: Pathfinder '96-'02 Xterra '00-'02 Frontier '01-'02 Of course, these would have to have the HG46 axles as well. My main question is will the third member from the '01-'02 Frontier work as well? I thought I read something was different. Maybe it is something to do with using the entire axle assembly and the mounting points? Also, if I get a suitable donor third member with LSD, it is just a straight swap into my axle housing, correct?
