I've been running this setup for a while now with 2 long hauls to upstate New York for a National Solo Tour and than this past weekend to Devens, Massachusetts for a Solo Divisional Championship. By the way, installation was a snap, great write up
I have to say I'm damn impressed with the V6 motor. I wanted to splurge for a V8 but, couldn't for the life or me find a V8 in black like my wife wanted so we settled for the V6 since I don't tow the car on a regular basis, only to out-of-state events. The V6 really has had no problems hauling the Evo and all of our crap (myself, my wife plus our young kids and her cousin) even up and down some pretty mountainous regions.
The only thing I'd like to try and solve is the little bit of sag when the Pathfinder is fully loaded. I'm running the airbags at 30 psi on stock springs and shocks. i considering a Nissan weight distributing hitch but, don't have much experience with towing in general so I'm not sure if this will help with the sagging by redistributing the load. Suggestions?
thejean - what roof storage container is that? It looks like a Thule? What model?
Oh and here is a pick of the truck fully loaded with the Evo, family and all of our crap:
