Default Nissan 4x2 vs. 4x4 Splash Guards (Mud Flaps)

For the last few months, I've been on a bit of a quest to find original splash guards to put on my 87. The 4x4 splash guards have been long obsolete from Nissan and during the course of my search, the 4x2 versions became obsolete as well. I started by scouring the local JYs and found some Pathfinder splash guards, followed by getting a set of genuine Nissan 4x2 versions.

In a string of luck, david29 offered up some nice used 4x4 rears (thank you sir!) and then I scored an almost new set of original take-off 4x4 versions on eBay. I was looking for the original "NISSAN" script versions that were available through Nissan dealers for my 87. I actually don't think the "4x4" script versions were ever available as a genuine accessory part. I bought a set around 94 or so for my old 86.5 4x4 and they were the "NISSAN" script.

Anyway, I've have multiple versions in the last couple of months and wanted to share some information with the folks of Infamous.

I took some pics and measured dimensions of the 4x2 and 4x4 versions. I also have some ratty Pathy splash guards that I'll post up later just for reference. BTW- the Pathy front guards are very similar to the 4x4 truck guards and I think they would work, although they are slightly different in mounting design.

These are getting harder to find and I thought about making my own at one point. Hope the info below can help if anyone is considering making a set or with identifying what you find in your own searches.

Thanks,
Sean

Fyi, the 4wd ones are under new numbers. They are discontinued but they are still around. They come in pairs front and back, separate part#'s. I don't have the info with me right now. I will look thru my stuff and post it here. I kind of just stumbled upon the numbers by accident while searching for my cup holder (68430-75p00).

Here are the Pathfinder images and rough dimensions. Fronts could work for a 4x4 truck, rears are completely unique. These came off a 93 pathfinder at a local junk yard, based on the newer style front bumper and square dash. There may have been other Pathfinder splash guard designs for the very early 87-89 models. I know the 94-95s had an integrated design with the fender flare. I'm no draftsman LOL! But maybe this info can be helpful.

I'll scan the rest of the images at work this week. If anyone wants a PDF, I'll email it to you.

Great reference data, Nissean.

I made it a Sticky, so please do not ever delete the photos - EVER!

I'll see if I can scan everything to make it easier to print as a reference. In terms of complexity, I think the Pathfinder fronts would be easier to replicate for a 4x4 truck with the metal reinforcement and mounting tab. The metal piece could be formed with a couple of bends, versus potentially welding on a separate piece. The design is slightly different between the Pathfinder and 4x4 front, but the mounting holes and lower dimensions look to be the same. 4x4 backs should be pretty straight forward too.

Thanks.

So, I've been studying these to make a set, but it looks like I can't make any for my truck without the metal plates.

Is that correct?
