what alot of people don't understand wither, with the full bodied pathfinders.
is with hard wheeling, and no exo.. its not going to last.
my rig would be in a scrap pile without the exo.

second, for those of us who like the 2 door pathies... they were only made for 3 years.. so they are kind of rare.
Not like a toyota, where they made them for a decade.

crap, even with teh exo, i have still managed to break every window in my rig.

I have been toying with that idea for years..

WHEN the ass end of my rig gets detroyed, tis going to happen.
but not until then.

My wife and 3 kids don' t mind going wheeling / camping in the crap weather, cause it is still full bodied has the room, and heater kicks ass.

and the cut you show, is what i would do.

Yea, I was thinking of getting a soft top made up like War-Jeeper's. I've just been toying with the idea, idk if I am going to do it yet.

If i end up breaking a rear window sometime this summer, it'll probably happen.:redneck:

But, my reasons for doing an exo are logical, one is because I would not fit with an interior cage, the second is I want to keep it street legal, and an exo will allow me to do that.

Wut?

What about putting the back half of and extended cab truck on it with a micro bed? DVDswan is shooting for that once he gets his SAS done.

Ok. I guess I'll have to let it slide this once.:redneck: I like the looks of the Nissans, I just hate to see them covered up.

Sounds like a lot of work.:haha:

The problem is, I need a cage, and it would be tough to do an interior cage that I could also fit my fat ass in.

Plus, I need some sort of body protection if I am gonna keep following that damn green jeep guy around. If I didn't still drive it around on the street, I would totally just have an interior cage done, and it would end up a rasin and I would be fine with that.

But, its still street driven, and will still be indefinitely at this point. It's whats logical/practical for me at this point, maybe after I get my degree, I can get a sweet toob rig.

So, that leaves me with the option of an exo. I figure if I chop top it (no-body rides in the back anyways) I can make it look less ugly-exo-cagey, and also keep a lower COG, as I wouldnt have all that sheetmetal, glass and toob up there.

It all sounds logical in that stuff that I call a brain.

I also keep see-sawing between swapping in an auto, and saving my cash and doing a D300 doubler next summer.

Idk, I think I think too much.:haha:

Anything new with this?
Do you DD it still?

Not much, just wheeled it quite a bit this summer. It sits semi-broken right now. Did get some 35" boggers put on it though.:D
