Totaled out in Feb - looked like it slid under something on an icy road - nice junk yard find! Diffs are 4.90s just need to get spring perches welded to the top of the axle for the truck (Xterras are spring under axle).

Also pulled heads off a 94 pickup to use the cams and lifters out of. That truck only had 165,000 miles, but the engine had a Nissan Authorized Refurbished tag behind the right head.

All totaled $560 out the door with extended warranties (7 months). Time to start wrenching!
My Florida LKQ would have changed me 560 for the diffs alone

Well Dorian never came to my house, so I was able to go to the local JY. Got a bunch of "woodgrain" accent pieces from an LE, for the interior of my Corolla CE. It came with gray interior. I got the black door panels from a Corolla S and now the woodgrain accents. And I scored gray Bucket seats and gray door panels for my D21. Currently rocking a tan bench, no headrests, no drivers cushioning, and ply wood door panels. Once I figure out how to post pics, I will document the change over.
Curious : My truck is Scab and the seats came out of a ExCab, will I need Scab tracks for my seats to work?

Was able to grab some speaker covers for the door panels. There was a pathey with power windows, i may try to go back and get those. It has a trailer hitch, will that fit my 88 hb, i think it was a 96/97 pathy?

I don't think it's going to fit on your Hardbody. It has a leaf spring suspension; the Pathy has coils.

I didn't think that would effect where the hitch attached to the frame, but i am far from an expert on these trucks, so thanks for that info

Sorry, yeah I meant to say the frames are different since one is for leaf springs and the other is for the coil springs.

I know the bumpers don't interchange, so I would not expect the receiver hitches to swap either.

And so is Pick-N-Pull, at least in FL. Not as good as the 50% off, but still some good deals to be had.
