It’s a better option, (beefier everything, housing etc, 9.05” ring gear, bigger than the previous generation Titan) and also the same gear ratio (3.36). The V8 pathfinder only comes in 2.94, so the Armada/QX56 are the only options if yours is 3.36 in front too. All you need to do is change/swap your...

There's been some V8 guys swap in a V6 differential to get a taller gears. I don't think they've had any strength problems. Not sure about that, it be a lot easier to just swap an Armada(Big Tow) or QX56 diff (any) to retain the beefier ring gear/diff assembly and still get the 3.36 ratio. That's w...

If you do happen to get a V8: http://www.thenissanpath.com/viewtopic.php?t=9717&sid=7c01fb328db628982dda17f4dd7a00bd It's fairly cheap and easy to get a decently capable vehicle out of these things despite what most people will say. (Suspension & tires) Mine surprises me every time I go out with the...

Do you think you might have the 4x4 springs and OME confused? I know that the 4x4parts were advertised as 1.75", but were only about .75-1", and they have since corrected their advertisement and also added a line of HD springs for a solid 2" lift. Slightly less $$ http://www.4x4parts.com/i-18981117-...

Would also involve a ratio change in the rear end, and front if 4wd.
Not necessarily a ratio change, but certainly beefing it up with a V8 units from either an Armada, Titan, or V8 R51.

Seems strange, I can make messes when I turn mine off. Maybe Canadian models have something extra?

In 08 is when the changes appeared due to the inception of the V8 requiring a facelift/extension.

By long travel LCA's, do you mean you went with the Titan swap?

Never seen any LCA's for ours except for T-swapped units and that last picture looks like that (T-swapped).

I can attest and mine is quite the Frankenstein set-up. (35" tires/3.36 gears).

My MPG's are very accurate as is the miles to empty.

ohhh yeah ... the manifolds. But since they have the cat integrated into the manifold, you're covered under the 8yr/80k emissions warranty.

So look for one with less than 80k and 8 years old. That's where I lucked out.

Had the problem, fixed free of charge.

Yeah, V6’s just cannot sound as good as a V8, unless it’s a VR38DETT, but that’s just a different ball game. I agree, you would be giving up some luxury. I would still keep your ears to the ground. I found my fully loaded V8 for about KBB from CarMax, though since it wasn’t it my immediate area I ha...

What type of projector headlights are you using?
Did you see any improvement after the swap?
If you find some that fit the 08+, let me know ... I haven;t been able to find any off the shelf, only 05-07.

Thumbs up to NmexMAX, Thupertrooper and others posting pics their rigs off the beaten path!! Do I hear GoneMoab2016!?! It's quite a bit more capable than a lot of people/reviewers make it out to be. Just needs the right set-up. Every time I go out, I'm always worried I'm going to be "that guy" that...
