Nissan Pathmaker One Ton SAS Build Walk Around

Nissan Pathmaker One Ton SAS Build Walk Around

Nissan Pathmaker One Ton SAS Build Walk Around

I had the Nissan 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. Nissan Pathmaker One Ton SAS WD21 Build Walk Around, while you get to come for a ride around our local OHV park trails.

Trailer Pipe Fender Scabrication – Pathmaker Speed Shop

Trailer Pipe Fender Scabrication – Pathmaker Speed Shop

Custom Trailer Pipe Fenders

My rusty old fenders decided that they had had enough, finally crumpling, pushing into the sidewalls of two of my brand new trailer tires, (literally first tow) which in turn destroyed the sidewalls of the tires and prompted a trailer fender rebuild. 

My rig is fat, real fat. It doesn’t fit between the wheel wells of my trailer. Which means that every time I load my rig I have to drive one tire up and over the fenders. I get to choose the side but I’ve got to pick one. Over the years that has crushed my rusty old fenders. So it was time to cut the old fenders off, grab a few sticks of pipe and bend up a few bars. Then I can drive over the bars which will take the weight a lot better, plus if I’m smart I’ll be able to reuse the old steel from the old fenders because I’m cheap and buying new metal is expensive!

Mogstang Unimog Rock Buggy Photo Shoot and Walk Around

With the Mogstang buggy finally “finished” (I put finished in quotations because no good rig is every finished!) it was time to take advantage of some last good weather and get in a quick photoshoot before the winter weather set in. Wheeling the day before it was a short notice thing, with me arranging to go to Frogstompers and flex the rig out on some of the rocks of the IslandCup course. So Craig quickly cleaned up the rig and brought it down the Mt. Garibaldi and I shoot some photos and some video in the afternoon light. Continue reading →
