Here is my new rig, a 2011 Nissan Pathfinder SV(v6). It has 64,XXX miles on it and is in mint condition. It was a great find, so far I have been getting around 22mpg mixed driving (saw 23-24 on the highway for a brief time). I can't wait to play with the 4x4 system and take it down the beach and trails around the house. So I have a few ideas planned for the Pathfinder and need some input on some others.
Here is my planned list of modifications:
- PRG Mini Lift with options (2")
- 4x4parts.com full skid plate set (1/4" alu.)
- RRO Supersliders
- 265/70/17 tires (TBD)
Now we already have a pretty efficient camping set up and have some coolers and cargo systems already in place/use. But my real question is about tires. I will daily drive this around 14 miles a day (at least). Must be all weather use (snow, rain, mud, hurricane, trees, etc) due to my job. And have a pretty good tread life.
Here is my current list of tires in the size I am looking at
- Hankook DynaPro MT
- Goodyear DuraTrac
- BFG Mud Terrain KM2
- Yoko Geolander M/T plus (my last vehicle had the A/T-S and I loved them)
- BFG All Terrain KO2
- Dick Cepek Fun Country
- Firestone Destination M/T
