Lock-Right has offered a locker for Nissans for years, however it only fits the rear (H233B) axles of the 86.5 – 95 Pathfinders and ‘86.5 – ’97 Hardbody Pickups. In 1998 Nissan upgraded the axle shafts in these trucks and went from a 31-spline axle shaft to a larger 33-spline axle shaft while keeping the rest of the H233B differential unchanged.
I recently contacted Richmond Gear, the maker of Lock-Right, and spoke to them about the possibility of making the necessary changes for the Lock-Right to fit into the ’98 – ’04 H233B axles and fortunately, it was a project that was started a long time ago but never finished. As of right now, Richmond is digging up old files and reviving this old project and is realizing how simple it is for them to make a Lock-Right to fit the newer ’98 – ’04 Nissan trucks. Before long, 1st generation Xterras and Frontiers as well as 2nd Generation Pathfinders will be able to enjoy the benefits of a Lock-Right locker.
If you have a V6 86.5 – ’97 Nissan Hardbody Pickup or a V6 ‘86.5 – ’95 Pathfinder, your Lock-Right locker can be purchased here: Nissan 31-spline H233B Lock Right Locker
