Right now my pathfinder is in PIECES.. so I guess most recently We've cut a ton of stuff off and designed the new front 3-link that will be offered in kit form.
Going on 37's and 14" travel coil overs with 5.57 gears!
Haven't been rushing the build at all making templates for all the pieces etc. but It'll be back on the trail soon.
Not too many pictures yet but updates are posted here: http://forum.ruggedrocksoffroad.com/index.php/board,40.0.html
I'll also be writing some blogs on the build when we get closer to the finish.

Right now it's in another foot of snow and it's still falling.

Cool pic Danny...you should add this to your build thread.  The Yak basket looks great too.

I took mine out for a drive in the desert last weekend.



As for mods, haven't done anything significant to it in several years. I'm sure it could use some more stuff, like lights, but gas is cheaper than mods.

No, I would say that gas is more of a priority than mods.  Mods are simply a long term investment.  Well, at least for me it is 'cause I don't plan on changing my truck for a while.

I would have to start a build thread for that. That shovel bailed my out a few times this weekend. Absolutly not for decoration. I had to dig 3 ft of snow for about 20ft just to get to my truck.
