    1994 Nissan Pathfinder. It's my buddies. I busted the clutch on my firebird so he's letting me borrow it for awhile until I can fix it.

    Him and his friend ditched the IFS and welded up an early 80's jeep truck Dana 44 solid axle. Rides pretty nice still. Needs a front swaybar for street driving though. 3" body lift, 4" Suspension (the rear coils came directly from a 70's ford 2wd truck = cheap). It's sitting on some BFG 35x12.5's I think. He's now wanting to so a spring over axle and lift the ass end another few inches to fit 37's. Big Nissan. Definately gets some looks and rides a shitload different than my lowered bird.

    He just put the front bumper on today. Tube stuff isn't my favorite but it looks pretty good for being off a yota. :big grin:

    The blue rig is a Nissan 720 with SBC and fullsize chev 14 bolt axles I think. That thing has a gear drive with a nasty whine to it. :bigthumb:

    Do you have a link for it? I've only heard about it. Is it coil or leaf sprung?
