  • Conundrum: Wow, with all the rain I've been in as well as flooding in the X on Fat Tire, I have a new issue. Set light blinking rapidly and goes away after restarting the engine. I did a little research and I guess the cruise actuator can get nasty and seems plausible since I went through a puddle on purpose on the right hand side and that made the set light for cruise start flashing again. I'll check it out after the rain stops. lol Have fun and be safe out there everyone.

That was due to the rain.. Lol. Thanks for the positive comments.. It's a work in progress like all of our vehicles.. The 4" longer arms on the front make for interesting looks out on the street. Putting the spare tire out back was a great idea in theory but the stock rear springs can't hold the stock height let alone any real weight in the back like people in the third row or any cargo. They will be swaped out soon. The front is a little soft even with all the preload I have dialed in but it works for the stuff I do. Next mods will be better shocks and springs... 33" and little more lift. Maybe a new windshield..  After five or six flights at high-speed what was a small spider in my window is now a large crack .. Lol

i actually have had 33s on my Pathy for most of the time i have owned it, 3 years
the first were nitto terra grapplers


IMG_3088 by Victor Lopez, on Flickr



now i have the km2s and i like the mud terrains better since i dont drive it alot
the old nittos i got used with alot of tread left and i got 20k out of them till they started getting bumps on them
i dont know if it was there age but they rode hard and stiff
new km2s ride smoother just feel heavier especially when i go to brake
what brand UCAs you have
 i really like your tire carrier

 Actually my entire front suspension was built by me. I wanted to go to broken arrow with the club but didn't want to show up with the stock Pathfinder so I spent two weeks prior to the trip fabbing up my own suspension using the stock stuff .. It's 4" wider per side with A different lower ball joint location to give the arm more clearance at ride height .. The rock sliders spare tire carrier roof rack and front suspension we're done in the course of two weeks prior to that trip. The upper control arms use poly bushings and the original ball joint with the angle changed I plan to make tubular style new ones soon  or I may bite the bullet and buy some but I doubt it ....right now it will cycle about 12 inches but is limited by the Adj 5100's I have on it currently.. As I'm sure you're well aware of the factory rear springs are absolutely useless and given the added weight of the tire carrier and my kids in the back it made for an interesting trip at broken arrow. I didn't realize that it would SAG that bad and I had extremely long rancho 7000's on the rear testing them .. I ended up smashing the bump stops built-in to the shocks on that trip .. so until I get all the bugs worked out of it it just sits most of the time and driven to work in phx a few times a week..

This is one bad ass rig. I'm really interested in how you reworked the stock control arms. Got any pics?

A lot has happened both on the truck and in my life so I may be getting rid of the pathfinder. My current front set up is a set of Titan lower control arms that have been cut lengthened fully gusseted and reinforced.. Stock ball joint angle was changed as well. The upper arms are gusseted 1" square tube with 3/4 heims the spindle was drilled to except a 3/4" heim ... The shocks are 10" radflow coilovers with two stage springs.. Here are a few pics of it currently:
