I would prefer a selectable locker for even the rear. Does this mean a fix for the weak E-locker side gear is not possible or practical?

I have not even pursued that path, nor do I plan to. I think ARB will come out with a locker a soon too. So you will have switchable type, a LSD and a spool to choose from. With the gear sets we will be set for the rear end. Then we just have to solve the front diff problems.

Are you sure that ARB will be making a locker for the Nissan D44? Since there are mostly E-locker units? Trying to remember....was there another model that come with an open 44?

Any manual tranny 2nd gen has the Nissan 44, regardless of trim level or locker option.

Ok, that is what I was thinking. Hopefully ARB will see a demand for a rear locker then. ARB should probably be made aware that the E-locker units are also part of that demand as they must be replaced for serious wheeling and larger tires.

Start e-mailing, writing, and calling ARB USA. You seem to be the most vocal out of any 2nd gen owner on this board when it comes to needs for upgrades...my $0.02

I will. I pushed hard with them for stuff for my old rig in the past. ARB seems quite easy to get along with.

Ok, I talked to Steve at ARB. Basically they have had axles in Australia since 05.

His comments were....

1. They have not seriously looked at anything yet.
2. The differentials for the Titan, X and Frontier are so poorly and under-engineered THEY are concerned about working with them!
3. They were worried about over heating of the D44.(I explained I thought this was an issue fixed in 05 with the bigger cover on the Titan, but I couldnt confirm that was what he was talking about)

Ok the spool deal is happening right now!
Heres your chance for a bullet proof fix for your Nissan M226 rear end. These units will be done in the next few weeks. They will be a direct bolt in, use your same axles and ring&pinion set. If you are a serious off roader you will want one of these!!! They wont be for your daily driver, as they will make you have a solid live axle. I am expecting the cost to be around $500 for the billet steel, heat treated unit.

If you want one right now speak up, as I am only doing a limited run. If you miss this run we will need to get enough orders for a second run.

$500 for a spool?

I questioned the same thing, but seeing as it's a custom build, I can see it.

Guys if could be less. It s easier to go down than is to go up on the cost. If somebody wants one they will buy in at $500 and then be happy if it comes up less. I cant for sure predict the price as we have 3 steps with 3 venders to do this. 1st step is machine the billet to shape, 2nd step broach splines, 3rd heat treated. If we were to do a run of a 100 pieces the price would drop way down, but right now it is a very small order.

That was my point. For a custom build spool, that is probably right on track price wise.

Material, programming and machine time all cost money. Got to recoop the programming time some where.

So I wonder how a TrueTrac LSD would work with ABLS?

The problem with TrueTrac is that it doesn't always catch without working the brakes-- but in theory ABLS would pump the brakes automatically. So it might work better than it does in old Jeeps.

Hmm.

Sad. But atleast Toyota seems to be stepping up to the plate on warranty and updating parts, if I read the thread right.

So I took in my Xterra for repairs at Peoria Nissan. According to the service advisor's boss, my use of the Xterra offroading borders on abuse.

This is what is being replaced.

1. Front Driver's side CV shaft.

2. Front differential.

3. Transfer case.

4. Rear differential.

This being said everything is covered by warrantee. That is the good thing.

This is posted here for the rear diff being fixed.

I'd say you must be racing desert races in that thing! I know what went wrong with each of the other parts, without asking. What happened to the transfer?

Funny you mention that. My cousin, Grumpy, does photos of motorcycle desert racing.

As for the t-case. I don't know what happened. It had been finicky for over a year now and I chalked it up to being a four wheel drive thing. Guess it wasn't.

I am going to ask for a detailed list of repairs. I will let everyone know as soon as I know.

My guess, they won't know.

They will just drop the entire case and replace it.
