I posted about two years ago in this thread so here it is basically finished. (although we all they are never finished!)


Do you think there's enough travel?


It has a Nissan Patrol from axle (H233) and basically total Patrol drive train and front arms. Rear is completely custom arms. Wheel alignment is done as a LWB GQ Nissan Patrol.

Tyres are 33's for off road racing (Micky T's) but run 35 Simex Extreme Trekkers for most other things. They aren't available to you in the US but for wet clay and mud (not mud bogging) they are about as good as you can get. Plenty of better tyres for dry terrain but when you live in New Zealand and have about 6' of rain per year, mud is a constant challenge! http://www.simextyres.co.nz/simex-ar...le=-2092972571

Engine is a turboed Nissan VH45. As tuned it has about 530hp. In the race the above photo the GPS recorded 137 MPH as totp speed but we were regularly above 130mph.

And in race trim it is 100% road legal with the engineers certs to prove it.

Here is my 08 with 60's under it. It sits pretty darn low for being on 42's.

Why embarrassed? Shit, I'd brag about that! HD axle for low coin is nothing to shake a stick at.

I was originally going to do a 3" SL and some skids and then pick up a nice project hot rod/pickup, but after the first time offroad here in NM (recently moved from VA), I abandoned those plans and decided to put that money I'd been saving into the Xterra for a SAS. There are too many Jeeps and Yotas out on the trails... I figured I needed to help bring some diversity out to the trails here haha

Probably wouldn't help you much, those year Pathfinders are unibodies, completely different setup then hardbodys.

Hardbody and WD21 Pathfinders have a nice rise in the frame which is good for getting them low. I ran a Calmini front hanger and a hybrid pack of Toyota rear leafs and was low enough that the front diff kissed the oil pan a few times.

I thought even yours was kinda tall but if the diff and oil pan collide I probably don't wan't to go any lower. Do you have any pics of where you welded the front spring hangars? I looked up the build thread but most of your pics are gone.

Photobucket rolled out a new beta version and is preventing me from uploading photos.

Calmini hanger was placed underneath the front crossmember like recommended from them.

One reason my rig looked taller then it was was because I had trimmed the fenders quite a bit. When I originally SAS'd it, it was at a 4" lift over stock. I think to get any lower then that, you would have to push the front hanger, steering box, and axle forward to minimize contact with the oil pan.

No pictures of the front hanger but here is an overall shot at ~4" lift and a shot that shows the axle/oilpan closeness, in fact, if you look close you can see where they kissed.

you're right, it looks a lot lower with out the fenders cut. 4 inches is still a little higher than I want but is doable. Thanks for the pics. Now I gotta find a truck.

I have a botched D21 SFA on leafs. Would like to get some input from the guys that have done 3 link + Panhard front and rear, as to what works well for a daily driver with 6" lift on 33's now, but I want to go 35's.

Nearly got my 10 post count to post pictures, but I have posted my story and problem in the newbie section in a thread "Newbie from South Africa".

But I think I must do it all over in the Nissan section with some pics.
