The Nissan Pathmaker OneTon SAS Build Blog - Dec 2017 Update

 

I had the Pathmaker out at the Frogstompers Funday Toydrive in Dec 2017 and decided I should do an updated blog post just to go over where my rig sits now, as compare to my last blog post and first shakedown run which took place in 2012. I figured I'd film the origin story and then go over some of the parts on the rig, while you get to come for a ride around our local OHV park trails. 

The Pathmaker currently sits on 42"x 14" Irok tires on custom designed 17" steel beadlocks. Front Ford Kingpin Dana60 with Yukon Lockouts, 35spline chromo inner and outer axles with Yukon Superjoints. 5.38gears and a welded "spool" as well as Full PSC Hydro with an 8" Ram and NWF Hydro Arms. The rear axle is a 14 bolt with disc brakes, 5.38 gears and a welded spool with a 1/4" plate cover.

A full exocage protects the body as well as myself and passengers from harm. Around here with all the trees, as well as big slippery climbs an Exo is essential. The Exo ties into my front bumper which has a Warn 8274 in it, which I squeezed in by moving the radiator 2" closer to the motor and replacing the clutch fan with a Ford Taurus E-Fan. The motor has 300zx cams in it, bored .50 over and running a set of Thorley Headers and a magnaflow muffler.

The stock Nissan transmission runs into the "stock" Nissan TX-10 Transfercase, which is only half a case because a NWF T-Case doubler is bolted to the other half. Onto the NWF doubler I have a flipped Dana300 with the shift rails modified for front dig, 32 spline JB Conversions Front and Rear Ouputs.

I should have HAD a Dana 300 because after 2 hard days of wheeling this weekend (and 11 trips since I put it in) my Dana300 case decided to split completely in half!

This has been an awesome build to keep up with! It's amazing how you start out taking so many pictures, but you never take any of the little jobs once it's done...I do the same thing. I've been eagerly awaiting each update every since the first one, I hope you keep the website updated as you continue to build the rig!!
