Drop Bracket is the easiest lift for the rear end similar to a body lift.
If I could build my Pathy again I would start with a Titan Swap front end and a 2" drop bracket and Armada Springs with longer shocks.
The R180 Lokka locker is the cheapest traction out there but also the weakest link to beware.
Picture because Im bored.

Mostly just camping with some minor technical trails. Camped all around arizona and some in California and Nevada. There is a get together soon but the clubs and groups out of nevada are slackin.

Im being sucked into this thing called overlanding but want to get back to just camping. My maintenance on my modifications are catching up to me lol.

Agree...I can always make time for a quick camping trip but it's hard to get away for many long overlanding excursions. (wish i was retired)

I totally hear that! Got to replace ALL the bushings on the front and rear suspension now. It sounds like a old squeaky delivery truck from the 70's!! :oops:
Maybe I'll start cranking some Starsky and Hutch theme music while I'm at it! :shock:

Our Pathys are the only ones I seen on 35s.
There is a guy in Utah that works for a jeep shop that has access to the tools and made his V8 Pathy a rear sas and mid travel front setup ill try and find some pictures. Hes on the other nissan forums.

Its on 37s but looks boring compared to ours lol. He built it in less then a month. Prob $20k invested in it

There were maybe 4 others over the years that have posted pics of their rigs on 35's but who knows if they're still on the road or not.

I really like the 35's over any of the smaller sized tires I've run. Almost seems like the gearing on my truck was meant for 35's!!

Yeah post some pics of the Utah guy...I'm curious now...37's huh?!

Way out of my budget. But still a bad ass build.
