Hi all,
Here’s a little about me from my intro post:

I grew up with my Dad taking us camping, hunting and fishing in a 1992 Nissan Pathfinder XE. Most of my favorite childhood memories involve that vehicle and he sent me to college in it. I took my wife on our first date in it and went all over the mountains of Idaho in it. Long story short it means a lot to me and my family and I want to keep it running a long long time.

In a few years I’m going to be in a place financially where I can really do some work on this truck and I want to surprise my dad by either restoring it or majorly improving it. It has always had a very wimpy motor and terrible gas mileage. I want to keep the cabin exactly as it is, every scratch and dent has a family story behind it. But I’d love to make it into a safe, efficient daily driver and back roads wanderer.

I’d love some advice on whether it would be crazy to drop the cab onto a newer frame, regardless of the make and model. I’d love to get maximum performance and efficiency.

If that is not feasible I’d consider a frame swap with another pathfinder or an engine and tranny swap. I’ll be saving up for this for a little while and really would love to surprise my dad with it. Let me know what you think!

Ps I’ll post some pics of the beautiful beast when I figure out how
