OK, I watched your first video, look at the body mount that is right around the front of the door area, see how the mount looks like it slopes downward?


screenshot from your video below:





Now look at the same mount (other side) from a 4x4 Hardbody frame, doesn't it look like the mount slopes upward? Or am I seeing things?? (Pic from Synbiotic12)

I think that is the height difference, it may be a 2" height difference and not the 1" that I said earlier.

I rest my case ! LOL

1 more pic, this is a 2wd king cab frame (pic from David29), notice the same mount in the pics above, seems like the 2wd mounts also slope downward.


Seems like on the 4x4 Hardbody the top of the mount where the body mount sits on is actually above the height of the frame rail but on the Pathfinder and 2wd Hardbody the top of the mount looks like it is below the top of the rail.

Well...all I know is that the wife owns a 98 Pathy and I have the 97 truck. And when we sit side by side, hers is taller. Body also sits farther off the ground on hers than on my truck.

But here's the weird thing. When you measure from bumper to bumper on both these rigs..my king cab is LONGER than the Pathy.
