well guys, i got back from vacation. It was a long trip, but worth all of it.

To start off, me and steph went to oregon and dropped off the 3 kids.
We drove to california where we hooked up with one of my oldest friends and we build an exo cage for the pathy, she's not 100% done, but pretty close, we didn't have time to paint it.

After the wheeling trip, we drove directly west and hit Hwy 101 from Eureka california all the way up the coast to Lincoln city.
Don't have any pics of the drive yet.. still got to get them.

we then drove up the columbia gorge to Umatilla Oregon, where we met with my family and spent time water skiing on the river. What a blast.

All in all I drove 2310 miles towing my pathy on hte trailer the whole time.

Here are some pics of the con

the pathy with its new front end

Nice picture Pathfinder. Is it really hard to make the exo skeleton? I would like to do to my Pathfinder. How many inches lift? Did you put on a different axle?

funny you say that, i've already got 3 tubes that are bent to shit. i didni't take it easy on her. nice thing about the exo, is you can USE it, go slide around shit.

next year.. prineville oregon. i.e. swartz canyon

the exo is not so hard. the problem is having the right tools. you must have a tube bender and somebody who knows how to use it. Phil was on it every time. no wasted tubing.

My pathfinder has high pinion 9" rear high pinion Dana 44 front, 7" of suspension lift, and 3"body lift
