Yes, I did it. The calipers bolt directly to the spindle. And I used pathfinder 4x4 front rotors.
Took measurements and had the machine shop mimic the beebani adaptors. As far as the rears, I used 2008 frontier rear rotors, and made a plate welded to my axle ends. I have a thread in project builds, under nfamus d45 you can see it all. There's more to it but I can help you with any other questions

Just out of curiosity, do replacement calipers from like napa or orieleys have the "NISSAN" cast into them like that or is that only going to be on oem nissan parts like from a dealership/junkyard

looks like he did what anyone would do to make an adapter..its not like he bought yours, got a machine shop to copy the measurements then re sold them.

sometimes people make stuff that any machinist can measure and make, then you have something.

I saw your adaptor beenani and understoood how they worked, and spent 2 months getting measurements and parts and a friend of mine that could run the machinery, P.S. I still ha e the plans saved and a couple people ask to buy. I could make money at $200 rather than the 3-350 you're asking on eBay, but I understand the hard work and bullshit you had to go through to make these, and If they want them, they can either A buy them from you, or B: do the same homework we did.. also. 2004 frontier front rotors are a better fit v.s pathfinder rotors. They are 283mm vs 276mm
