  1. Kinda going along with El Pathfindero's thread below, I was just wondering what you all carry in your rigs as far as recovery gear. Also, anyone use the no name shackles/straps listed in some auctions on ebay or are they something to stay away from. Thanks.
  2. Great choice on the new car. I love my 2000 Max. I've been a member on maxima.org for almost 5 years now, don't visit all that often anymore since it seems to have gone downhill over the past couple years. One of the more common issues to look for is the ignition coils, check the ones on the car and see if they have silver dots on them, this means they are the updated coils so you shouldn't have any problems. You will be glad you didn't get an auto too, mine has sucked since day 1 and its been serviced a couple times with little change in its performance. Anyways, good luck with the car, here's a recent picture of mine:
  3. Buddy of mine has the ravelco in his WRX. He swears by it and has had no issues with it so far. No one has stolen his car yet so I guess it works haha....
  4. Another vote for BlackPanther. Got my skids a few weeks back from Marcel, picked up his last Black 10GA Superskid kit and finally installed it last week, fitment is AWESOME. Only trouble I ran into during installation was the broken bolts from the factory splash guard which were a pain to extract. Tested them out this weekend and they worked great. I will have to get some pics up. Marcel is a great guy to deal with too, he was very patient with me and answered all my questions quickly. Only thing that sucks is the shipping cost since he's from Canada but oh well, its worth it. I'm glad I went with Black Panther.
  5. Yeah please share. I modified mine with the relays but I lost my auto off. I would love to know how you did it.
  6. Skids look great. I got Marcel's last set of 10G Black powdercoated skids waiting to be installed hehe. Probably throw em on in a few weeks when I do an oil change. I will have more time then since I will be done with school too. I've got 2 or 3 broken bolts to extract from the factory splash guard too since they broke. They look awesome quality though, can't wait to put them on. I will definitely post some pics.
  7. Heres what I use mostly. Exterior: Meguiars or 3M stuff. Interior: Lexol and Vinylex. Glass: Sprayway
  8. I keep the dryer sheets under the hood so rodents dont make that their homes under there and nibble on wires. Moth balls will work too, the dryer sheets smell better tho imo haha.
  9. I just use regular dino oil. Castrol GTX 5W-30 and Nissan filter every 3k. Same thing in my Maxima. I've thought about going synthetic, mainly in the max but eh, quality dino oil and filter changes every 3k is fine.
  10. What I do when I store my Maxima: - Full detail - Stock wheels - Oil change - Full tank of gas - Remove battery - Dryer sheets under the hood - Towel stuffed in the tailpipe - Car cover I think thats everything...
  11. I'll take 2 whites, is it possible to get them in silver? If so I'd take 2 silver, 2 white. BTW what kinda prices we talkin for these?
  12. I'm running OME Mediums all around, OME shocks, and the KYB struts. The ride is perfect imo. It is quite stiff, but I got used to it quickly and it makes the Pathy feel much more stable. The handling is much better and the off road performance is also much better. My rear sits a bit higher than the front, but it's not enough of a difference to bother me at all. I am very glad I went with the OME lift. I was thinking about trying those spacers from rockyroad just to get a little more lift up front. Herm if its not too much trouble could you post a pic of the spacers?
  13. I've got an '01 SE and my Mom has an '02 LE.
  14. I did it on my 01 yesterday. I ended up wiring them so the fogs can turn on without any other lights on. I used the position 1 wire on the fog relay, cut that and spliced a new piece of wire to the relay and tapped into the position 3 wire on the tail light relay. Only thing is the fogs dont turn off with the rest of the lights anymore when I shut the car off since they are completely independent and wired to the constant 12v source since I couldn't figure out which wire was just 12v when the parking lights were on....
