My frame rusted; both sides broke, and after removing scaled rust, there wasn't much of it left. I plan to fabricate and weld in a new frame myself with a 2 inch lift.
The shocks were also busted, so I will be replacing them with air shocks to ultimately achieve a little extra tire clearance (especially towing boat, camping gear etc).
I love these trucks! I currently own a 92 Pathfinder SE V6 manual 4x4 with 220 000, 93 XE V6 manual 4x4 with 290 000, and a 95 D21 Hardbody XE V6 Kingcab WD with a manual trans.
I have fixed the exhaust bolts that break off in the head on the torque side, by using a right angle drill with reverse, and a left handed drill bit removing the bolt. Then I drilled and tapped it out for a 3/8 Chevy American bolt (figured it was stronger).
My Nissan 4x4 pulled out 15 semi trucks in a snowstorm last year, with a rusted frame and lots of cars up my hill.
I guess I'm a collector.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
