    Default ExPo Nissan Registry

    I have seen this in a few other manufacturers sub-forums here and I thought it might be a good idea to have a running registry of the Nissan trucks that frequent this section. That way anyone who is new or researching vehicles can easily browse through what people have done here and have easy access to build threads,

    Is there a high demand for sliders or bumpers on Pathys? Nice nods btw. I want drawers badly.

    Drawers are actually pretty easy to make, just takes some planning. I made a mistake on mine but I can live with it. As for bumpers, yes. Most pathfinder owners I know
    want either a front or rear bumper or both. Many don't like the style of ARB sahara bar because of how low it sits. Many go to make their own but find because of the
    washer fluid reservoir they have to make the bumper sit lower than they want, many people I know who made their own wish a few aspects could be different. Some
    people go custom and they love them. To put it this way, there is a high demand in the small market. Not many own pathfinders and of those that do, even fewer modify
    them. As for sliders, I think most go buy the Rocky Road Outfitters sliders or supersliders for them. They are stout and work okay but are lacking enough sticking out to
    be a good step. The only other option is custom or homemade. If there were more options many would buy bumpers front and rear and if sliders stuck out further than
    RRO and cost the The bumpers from TAG look terrible and the company is sketchy as all hell and the one front bumper from ARB is to big IMO. I know if I
    could find a reasonable front bumper that I could finally but my winch in (its been sitting in garage for a while) then I would go for it.

    How'd you black the grill and rims out? Plasi-dip?
