OUr 2000 Pathfinder looks absolutely bog standard from outside - all the mods are internal and invisible to the naked eye, at least without pulling things apart! So pics of ours isn't gonna excite anyone!

Any mods that could be done (lift, tyres etc.) would be similar to Navara's as I'm pretty sure they share very similar platforms, except for the coil rear on Pathy's.
I do know that adjustable trailing arms are required for some Pathy's if lifting the rear more than 20mm :confused: , or it can stuff the pinion. Thats what a couple of suspension catalogues say in their disclaimer for Pathy's.

She's at the stage where she's got selective memory!! It's not quite as far as being involuntary selective memory yet, but anything she doesn't really want to know about simply becomes forgotten! There are a few occasions when she 'recalls' that there is a Detroit filling the rear diff housing, but not often, especially if it's someone asking how the heck she got the Pathy where it is! Then it's all just driver skill! And there is summat to that, she does get it to places that other Pathy's just wouldn't dream of, even if they had a Locker up the back. And she loves helping Toyota's, but she just won't video their faces for me!! Imagine, Stuck Toyo, little 80+ year old lady drives up in a Pathy, doesn't get stuck, then offers to help them out! I SO want to see those faces!

And since the Detroits been there, I haven't had any 2 am phone calls saying "I'm stuck in the middle of ...... (whatever), come and get me out!!" I used to get them fairly frequently, at all hours of the day or night. The only thing not so great about fitting the Detroit is that I took the ousted LSD centre & fitted it into a GQ front diff, drove it around like that for a while, then sold the whole diff off to help fund the two Detroits that went into the current vehicle! I should've kept it so I could've put the LSD front into Jules' GQ! That would've been good for that vehicle too.

Cyril we haven't had any worries with ours, but then it isn't really a 2" lift, more like 35-40mm. We have manged to break the stabiliser bar tho! But I do know of some Pathy's that have had problems with pinion angles, all with 2" or bigger lifts, driven hard off road, and no mods catering for the changed pinion angle!

I reckon that if you don't push it too hard, you'll be OK, but the harder you make the articulation work for you, the more likely it'll be an issue!

Lol! She calls it a "filling", like in a tooth. Thats funny.

me too :D

Nah I think it only affects the earlier model shorter wheelbase ones. I remember it because I fitted some new coils and shocks to an early Pathy a few months ago that had LPG fitted and was going to be loaded up with building tools all the time. Put in some heavy duty coils with only 20mm lift as per manufacturers recommendation because of the pinion issue. Obviously there had been problems in the past with going more than 20mm over stock or they wouldnt put it in their disclaimer.

hi critmca,
If your mate wants to see some cool pathy's just look on Gallery and on Pathfinders' Club of Australia Home Page
There are some cool pics of pathy club cars in all kinds of places, there are more than enough pics of pathy's in there to give him ideas on want can be done.
Joining the pathy forum would also give him people in his area to help with ideas and mods.
Good luck with it anyway, bren
