The two piston caliper off pathfinder with larger rotors bolts right up. It has been covered on the site a lot. Try a search. I would do it for you but its difficult on my phone.

The Pathy rotors are only slightly bigger, so I have been told. Not enough to change them. The Pathy dual piston calipers with the Pathy mounting brackets is what you need. I am about to do this upgrade as well.

So you do need the rotors for the V-6 version to put on a the 4 banger truck for the brake upgrade? I have read so many ways to do it. I am completely confused now.

4 cyl 250mm x 22mm
vs.
v6 260mm x 26mm

it's not an upgrade without the rotors, and the pads will hang off the edge of the rotors if not done as designed.
