MODIFYING A 2000 NISSAN PATHFINDER

Postby Karmi » Sun Sep 13, 2009 4:28 pm

Hey guys. I'm new here and this is my first choice. I have a number of cars at home, I'm somewhat of a car freak. Recently finsihed with a porsche carrera and now I'm working on an MG Midget and Nissan Pathfinder.

It's a silver 2000 Pathfinder, V6 3.5 SE. It has taken alot of damage in it's life and has run about 125k on the oddometer. However, the engine has just been worked on and it's running like it's brand new!

I was hoping you guys could give me some heads up or some ideas on what I could do with my 2000 pathfinder. I want a very subtle look. Don't want the extreme gangster look with chrome and bling everywhere. Just something very subtle yet will make people take a look at it and think "wow this guy put some hard work in to it." This is my first 4x4 project so I'm a little new @ this. I am having trouble finding any pics of modified pathfinders of this body type.

If you could find any pics or throw any good ideas @ me, that would be awesome!

Thanks alot guys.

P.S. - lovin' the forum.

I have the same problem as you karmi! Ppl don't seem to modify this generation, I don't know why! I've been looking for parts on internet, there are a ton for jeeps, a few for the 90's paths, and basically none for our generation. It's kidna lame... If you find anything, let me know!

Not exactly sure what you guys are trying to do to your pathfinders, but try Automotive Customizers

If you have any questions on parts/items they sell, just pick up a phone. The owners are very good people.

"Ppl don't seem to modify this generation, I don't know why! "
One word: unibody.
I'm in the same boat. Still a nice truck!

6) Yakima Load warrior and extension roof rack with piaa atp520 lights

Feurys - nice truck! Do you still have your siderails? Are they for sale? One of mine is rusted quite a bit!

Hey I saw the post I love this!
I wanted to say that I have noticed my PF is riding kindof roughly, I was thinking about replacing the shocks and struts and coil springs, Do you think that is a terrible idea? I can't find anywhere online where it says the average life of these parts, but I am thinking they are getting old. Any suggestions?

Fleurys,
Je me suis allé à la Ville de Québec; vous parlez français là-bas?
I know that it is bilingual. I was staying near the Frontenac; during the winter! ITS COLD!
