To Regear or Not to Regear... This is my question

Ladies and Gents I have paralysis by analysis! You see, I have a 12 Pathy with the stupid 3.13. DIdn't know that. In 2008 they changed the differential's final drive ratios from the 3.36. I have upgraded from the stock 30.5 tire to a 32.7 and now tow a Black Series Patron. Generally, it pulls fine b...

Re: $500 3.69 Gear Upgrade

Hey guys, I did a lift and 33" tire upgrade thinking that i'd be fine not regearing but my gas mileage is under 12MPG city and around 15-16HWY. The power is okay but long climbs leave me screaming in 3rd gear or 2nd. I am seriously thinking about this 3.69 upgrade as it wouldn't be crazy to do from ...

Re: Ironman 4x4 1.5" Lift installed and Tested.

Hi everyone! I wanted to post an update. The shocks are doing well and taking a beating in stride although I do have some things to keep in mind. 1. I have a Tepui Ruggedized 1.9M mounted to the factory roof rack and it's been fine but the added 200lbs on the roof have had some effects on the head t...

Re: 350z / 370z Limited Slip Into the Pathfinder

Bringing up an old thread... DId anyone actually install the Quaife unit in the R200 yet? Looking for my V6 Pathy. I talked to Steve over at Rugged Rocks and it doesn't seem like the C200 unit is a viable option without some machining and I am not sure where to accomplish that at. Plus the cost for ...

Ironman is weirdly enough one of only two manufactures in AU that still makes their own stuff. Bilstein is made in Mexico unless you go for the custom stuff.

They are a twin-tube design which is a less expensive design.

For the price, no issues at all.

Hi so I am considering the Ironman 2 inch lift and wondering if that was the size you went with or the 1.5in lift? How level was the vehicle afterward IE front to back are both ends the same height or does one end up higher than the other? Thank You ~ Phil Phil, The Pathy sits mostly level with the...

Hi guys, sorry to bring up a old thread, but... I am looking at doing the Mojave Road trail at the beginning of summer and I feel fairly prepared for everything but a bit unsure about this wading depth business. I have a 2012 LE V6. I has a 33" tire and a 2" Ironman 4x4 lift. The water is between 20...

*** UPDATE ***

Update - So I recognized that when in 4LO, and move the shifter to the manual mode, it shows 4th gear in the display on the dash. I cannot tell if its in 4th gear or if it's shifting below that? IF I leave it in the Drive mode, it feels as if the transmission is slipping or the torque converter is n...

bump steer?

Are you experiencing any bump steer? On certain types of bumps, I get the rear end stepping out with the Ironman setup.

Re: Looks good

Thanks for the review. We have a 2012 white "Silver Edition" 4x4 R51 with 56k that needs tires. We bought it in 2014 with 13k miles for $24k. Strongly considering ordering this upgrade... I'm thinking I will replace the 17" wheels with black rims, and replace front bumper with a black push bar/skid...

i'd like to know how well it plays on snowy roads. Generally the "Lunchbox" lockers cause some stability issues.

2012 Pathy - 4LO feels very weird

Folks I have had a chance to really get the Pathy on a few good trails. I do notice that the VDC/ABLS is much more aggressive in 4LO over Auto/HI. The thing I am finding weird is that the Transmission never seems to be in the right gear when doing a hill climb in 4LO and manual intervention is neede...

iPhone 11 inbound calling issues with 2012 LE w/Nav

Guys/Girls I am having a weird issue with inbound calls in my Pathfinder. When a call comes in, the caller hears that i am not available. On my end, it rings once, answers the call kind of, and then i can answer it with the steering wheel button. Sometimes, it just states that i am not available and...
