I am assuming the second misc list is axle types, correct? I am a moron at knowing mechanic speak, so which ones are the R180 and c200 (like what my X has)?

Ratt, you may want to edit it to include different sections, because the code names listed are for different parts (axles, models, motors, engine, etc.) Maybe have a section for the model code names, and then a section for the axle code names and so on.

^Oooo yes, I like this idea!

Maybe also include a section that lists the diff gearing ratios of the models, too?

the G4 Pathfinder is a Pathfinder in name only and now falls under the Car/Van statement in the OP.

Ah my mistake thought we were forming a component interchange sheet rather then a model spec sheet going off the title and information of the thread. Carry on.

with good reason. I just didn't realize we were excluding the pathfinder now because it's on the maxima chassis or whichever one it's on. but, good point. sorry to disturb the thread!

This is awesome. Lots of good information. Might be a good idea to add in tranny and transfer case info to. Just stating my search for knowledge so I can be a Nissan Yoda at the local U-pick wearing yard. First stop the sticky FAQ. Now time for more digging.
