I would love to go to Gone Moab one of these years but with the younger boys a little tough.  I live in Maricopa and go to my in-laws in Gilbert often so may see you around.

If you see a Pathy with bfg km2s thats me lol
But i miss Moab and really would like to go back and 4wheel with others( since my first visit was me wheeling by myself) i saw alot of jeep mobbing out together but i was either not prepared to follow them or just finished the trail as they were starting

Post by: theonepathfinder on October 27, 2015, 10:13:39 PM
I'll have to consult with the wife but I would love to make it out to gone Moab.... Let the begging begin.. Lol
I wheel all over butcher Jones and Sycamore because it's not very far from where I live in east Mesa but haven't seen you yet. Broke my spiral cable last time out and my ABLS quit working ...so if I get it fixed in the next couple weeks maybe we can meet up and go wheeling i'd be interested to see how your truck performs with the bigger 33's ..
I'm still on lame 31's..

Going to try some Armada rear HD springs and 8.5" travel fox shocks(thanks to theonepathfinder) on the rear to see how it sits.

Do the OR Pathfinders have a rear locker? Im planning to buy a 7 seater SUV this year. I was planning on buying a Land Cruiser but Im considering a Pathfinder if they have them with a rear locker.
Title: Re: 2005 Pathy
Post by: theonepathfinder on February 10, 2016, 09:47:24 PM
Unfortunately there is no U.S. Model with a locker from the factory. 2005 and up have the third row available. I'm more of Toyota guy my self but for the money the pathfinder is the better deal. A 4Runner with a third row 4wd and a e locker is going to be big bucks (if you can find one). The wagon style land cruisers are world renowned for reliability but... "putting my flame suit on" ... They just don't wheel all that great even with extensive mods. There is an air Locker available and an Aussie locker available for the front of the pathfinder.. truth be told I would put the above Pathfinder with it's front locker ...long travel set up ..and 33's up against any other brand suv with a third row. Next time you see a 4Runner in a parking lot... look at the gas tank... You'll understand what I'm getting at  ;)

Looking damn good, keep us updated. I have never seen a newer pathfinder lifted this high or off-road. My first real off road vehicle was an 88' 2 Door Pathfinder.

I really like those 2 doors with the triangle looking 15" rims
Those would be a perfect SAS

Is that round snap-ring all that holds everything together?
Title: Re: 2005 Pathy
Post by: Thupertrooper (Victor) on March 22, 2016, 06:42:55 PM
Snap ring goes on the inner cv holding the spline part on.
Since the inner cv moves in and out it doesn't really hold the cv together just in place.

I checked my email and I had missed the shipping notice.  I guess it went out late, I think the 22nd, but it is in shipping now.  Absolutely, I'd love a hand installing it.

Looks like you may need some limit straps to keep your cv's together.

Im kind of happy with the 12" of travel i get as it is if it was a 2wd i could get 14" with straps and shock hoops but that will be later down the road if i come across some dual stage coilovers. I dont think cv's are ment for that much travel.

If you guys come across or know someone with stock cv's for sale or let me borrow them just for sedona as thats the only option i have to make that trip.

So guys i haven't had 4wd in a while so i been itching to get back out there i have decided to go back to stock temporary and also get a chance to get some comparisons on both setups.

(http://i899.photobucket.com/albums/ac199/thupertrooper/pathy/40944368-9442-4C38-8445-7F3F577D5B67.jpg) (http://s899.photobucket.com/user/thupertrooper/media/pathy/40944368-9442-4C38-8445-7F3F577D5B67.jpg.html)


Left is stock length and width right is the LT 7" gives you an idea.

How my Pathy sits now. Having mixed feelings since i now have 4wd but have the clearance.

Made it through broken arrow without issues though :)

only issue was my upper arm was hitting the inside fender a little but it was to get maximum articulation out of a stock suspension, so not bad for "stock" haha

Sedona made me miss Moab lol so was thinking getting a group to go without the gonemoab.

Wow Nice truck. I have always looked at Pathy until they turned it in to a street machine. In the back of my mind I reasoned that Pathy  Platform would be the New Xterra format.

The Cargo space interior is to die for and it is still smaller and more practicable  than a Jeep in the same configuration. 8)

Soo i haven't really installed it yet as i do not have a real front bumper  ???
So i might hold off on installing it just a little. I did try it out because i was curious lol. I already have an led light bar so i dont need 2 white ones but nice that it has options for both amber and white. Also 3 types of stobes for emergency situations.

So an update on my Pathy.
1. I just recently sent my sample axle to RCV(been slacking)
2. I finally aligned the front and rear again big pain.
3. Installed a steering wheel cover 8)
4. Picked up some 1.75" wheel spacers big thanks to

My temporary fabricated stock setup.
After drilling out and cutting there is no true way to go back to original parts.

Im replacing the mock up extended axle shafts with custom machined axle shafts for my long travel kit.
They are 7" longer then stock

Thats the main process of taking our CV axles apart.
