I have seen this in a few other manufacturers sub-forums here and I thought it might be a good idea to have a running registry of the Nissan trucks that frequent this section. That way anyone who is new or researching vehicles can easily browse through what people have done here and have easy access to build threads,

Is there a high demand for sliders or bumpers on Pathys? Nice nods btw. I want drawers badly.


-Jonny
Drawers are actually pretty easy to make, just takes some planning. I made a mistake on mine but I can live with it. As for bumpers, yes. Most pathfinder owners I know
want either a front or rear bumper or both. Many don't like the style of ARB sahara bar because of how low it sits. Many go to make their own but find because of the
washer fluid reservoir they have to make the bumper sit lower than they want, many people I know who made their own wish a few aspects could be different. Some
people go custom and they love them. To put it this way, there is a high demand in the small market. Not many own pathfinders and of those that do, even fewer modify
them. As for sliders, I think most go buy the Rocky Road Outfitters sliders or supersliders for them. They are stout and work okay but are lacking enough sticking out to
be a good step. The only other option is custom or homemade. If there were more options many would buy bumpers front and rear and if sliders stuck out further than
RRO and cost the same...bingo. The bumpers from TAG look terrible and the company is sketchy as all hell and the one front bumper from ARB is to big IMO. I know if I
could find a reasonable front bumper that I could finally but my winch in (its been sitting in garage for a while) then I would go for it.

-Sorry for long response

wreckdiver...that last photo I like the most! that's some pretty good snow.
Thanks! It sure was a blast. And a big event! (Check my thread if you haven't already) We were in the Pryors, relatively close to your neck of the woods. Speaking of which, I just noticed you hang your hat in Wyoming. Whereabouts?

Make: Nissan
Year: 2013
Model: Frontier SV 6MT 4X4
Color: silver

This is my second Frontier, and being that the last one was more of a prerunner, I am going a different route than what I did last time. Being that my wife does not really care for the desert but more for the mountains, and I just want to be outside having a good time, I am building more of a trail rig. It will serve as our camping, hunting, weekend errand, and overlanding chariot.

Here is the day I brought her home.




A few weeks later deer season started. Although I got amazing views, it really reaffirms that the Long Trail stock tires are crap, and I sliced the inner sidewall on a fire road. Unsure of what I want to do, and that I didn't want to drop the coin yet for new tires and wheels, I just replaced the stock tire.
