I'm back in the USA now.
The truck isn't seeing much action and the driveway is too crowded with my fleet.
It's time to find it a new home.
Did you ever end up selling your truck or any of the parts?
no I didn't.
Still in the driveway.
I'm going to take all the shrockworks stuff off (might keep the sliders) soon and put stock bumpers back on.
I have two problems to solve first.
1. The truck has a body lift and I don't want there to be a 2" gap between the bumper and body. I need to find/make brackets to raise the bumper 2".
2. I hate the chrome on the stock bumpers. I'd love to have body colored bumpers like on some Frontiers but I don't want to spend much to get there. I'll probably just paint the chrome bumpers black and hope it sticks. Something like this.
So I took my truck to the scales today.
The truck, with the Shrock bumpers, skids and sliders on, winch installed, empty sliding tool box and full tank of fuel weighs 5440 lbs.
That is without passengers or cargo.
A quick search of Edmunds shows the curb weight to be 4502 lbs. and a gross weight of 5600 lbs.
better hope you weight 160 lbs? goes to show how all that stuff can really add up quickly
I finished removing all the armor and putting the stock stuff back on.
I'll go back to the scale this week to see how much it changed. I hope at least 750lbs.
So what exactly is the reason for shedding all the armor?
2002 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4x4 (R50)
Gluten Free Expeditions since 2011
I never used it.
When I first bought the truck I thought armor was a necesity for vehicle based travel.
Sure there will roads and trails I'll probably have to pass on now that I don't have a winch or as much undercarriage protection but those are far and few between and will quickly be forgotten about.
Additionally I realized that I often travel solo (or at least without another vehicle) and the armor might have given me a false sense of confidence and led me down roads or trails that I probably shouldn't attempt alone.
I'll take the weight savings, increased fuel efficiency and $$ in my pocket.
