Only one problem, they don't fit very well. You'll need to make everything custom, since there are no kits available. There are also no adapters, so you will probably want to bring everything over from the donor truck. Biggest problem that I have heard is the distibutor hits the firewall (chevy V8).

4x4parts.com sells some motor mounts to fit a couple of V8s in a Hardbody, but that's about all you'll find to help...

I am putting a Chevy V-8 in my ride. I am setting it up for HEI for now. I want to go TBI. Money for wiring harness is slowing that progress. Just beat the firewall back like I did. The TBI distributer is much smaller and doesnt interfere with the firewall. Also running serpentine belt and stock exhaust manifolds just clear the frame rails. I copied a set of 4x4parts.com set of motor mounts. Made out of 1/4" plate and 2x4 tubing. My bro had some leftover rubbers from an install he did at work.

I used the stock Nissan frame. Much easier to fab suspension to frame than body to chevy frame. I wanted to use Chevy frame but my bro talked me out of it. Plus it will be lighter with the Nissan frame.

Nice easy swap if done right, these are 2 wheel drive kits but with some playing you could probably get it to work with 4x4

PM me for details

Hey MiniMog, I have a 5.0 from a mustang laying around, and have been thinking about putting that into my pathfinder. Do those mounts work for that motor?

Hmm, not exactly sure can you get pics of the engine mounts

It probably will but I want to make 100% sure
