My first 4x4 part 2

(Thornlie Perth WA)

Well guys this is a continuation of my first post. I have a 1996 R50 Nissan pathfinder v6 3.3 ltr petrol 4 speed automatic gearbox with auto front hubs.

It is running 16 inch Cooper Discoverer A/T tyres with standard suspension and hella spot lights on the bumper I am keeping an eye out for a 2nd hand bulbar so if anyone hears of one can they let me know please.

Apparently the R50 model go's right up to 2004 and I have been told the chassis are the same up to then and the navara of the same age is the same. (So I have been told)

I am open to any suggestions with what I can do with it so guys please suggest away and now ill post some photos.

I am interested in any day tag along trips that maybe coming up but remember I am a novice still.

Your rig
by: Debztoy

Hi Eddy,

Nice rig you have there.
Before you start doing any kind of mods on it, you need to decide what you're more interested in doing with it.
Mud? Rocks? Beach? Dirt? Touring? Is it your daily aswell or will it be just the fun toy?

Once you figured out exactly what you'd like to do with it, then you can figure out where to start and what needs to come first. These toys aren't cheap and you can't pass somethings for cheap stuff, as it will be deadly out there when you need it the most.

I run a group called Rigs n Ruts 4x4 Club in the Southwest of WA, and you're more than welcome to find us on facebook and head out with us whenever you like. We do head up to the Powerlines on occassion and are looking at heading out and further up for camping weekends too.

I look forward to seeing you out there on the tracks :)
