For those that don't know,Nissan sold a very limited(said to be less than 500) of the 2 door Pathfindersin 1990.1989 was officially the end of the run and 1990 started the 4 door versions.This one benefits from the MPFI v6 and a 5 speed.
Full power options and a sunroof.
This is my summer project...and my sosn..he doesn't know it yet..lol
As you can see,the young boy who owned had a lot of fun saturday and on his way home,she sputtered and now will not crank up.He didn't hydro-lock it,but i think he killed the alternator and then drained the battery.He just said to hell with it and listed it for sale.
It is lifted 3 inches on 35's..which are to big.I will drop it down to 33's.
no carpet unless you count the mud as carpet.It is filth from the front seats forward but it is all there.
Lots of things to be replaced but seems like a fun project for me to lose some weight this summer.
I love rare and unusual toys. :wink:

I gotta believe they sold a lot more of them than that, I had had an 88 and definitely saw others around town at the time.

At any rate, my 88 was a great truck for me, put 162k miles on it with very few problems. Mine had the throttle body injection and an automatic. But it worked well, started even at -30F.

Look for rust under the rear seats, that is the first place it shows up for some reason.

I miss my pathy. Good good trucks.

Agreed. 35"s are way too big for that engine. Wouldn't be surprised if it ticks now because of them.

I will not know until I get it home and see why it stopped running.Father of his friend where the vehicle is at now thinks the alternator drowned which caused the battery to go dead then they killed the wet starter trying to jump it off.
That would be easy fix.worst case,timing belt broke.

That thing is rough. It'll look alot better once you get it cleaned up.

Please do something with those bumpers. The rear bumper raises up with no problems, the front you'll have to get creative.
