For anyone that has the pathfinder tire carrier....
What did you do to reinforce the corner so the carrier doesn't destroy the tub?

I also have wondered this.... I picked up a Pathfinder carrier and sold it because it was SO HEAVY! Also I am running the 4cylinder so extra weight isn't what i need!

The pathfinder carrier is a little heavy but I'm not sure it's any more weight than any other similar design.

What I did was drill a hole in my bumper and mount a piece of DOM to hang the carrier on. I offset the bumper so there's room for jerry cans between the carrier and the tailgate.



Made hinges with old shackle bushings and some 5/8 bolts.

I have seen them bolted directly to the tub and thats what I would like to do.

(and i love webers, ran them on my bmws for racing)

i am about to pull it off though to put an offenhauser intake and motorcraft on. hopefully i can find an old 450 motorcraft 4 barrel

I pulled the seats our of a sunfire. They bolted right up. Now all I need is some water resistant seat covers. I love the seats though. Much needed improvement!

I'm not sure what they run at junkyards, but its got to be a lot cheaper than the $400 price tag for a new one.
In my experience with pick yards in California, the fuel tanks are punctured and drained when the vehicle is placed into the yard for salvage. I advise you check with your local auto salvage yard to find out their policy.

Keep floggin ya on this one. I assume you took off the Weber and bolted this Holley to your Weber adapter plate? I am ready to take my Weber and run over it with something that has bigger tires than my YJ. If it was my DD I woulda already shot it. Mine is a DFV not a DGV, Lord knows where the PO came up with it. Its for Volkswagen or marine applications or something oddball like that. It does have the same bolt pattern tho.

Do you have a Holley model number for the 73 Cornet?
