Cool Longer axle?

My cv boots are shot, so since I'll be upsizing tires, I was wondering where I could get a longer axle to replace the factory ones. Thanks!

1) Pathfinders have been around a long time, so it's best to give some information when asking a question. Year/engine/drivetrain info is always helpful.
2) Simply going to a bigger size tire usually doesn't require getting longer axles. If you are making some drastic changes to the suspension that would cause axle length to be an issue, then we would need to know that info to be able to help you out.

There are no longer axles made for Pathfinders. And unless you changed your suspension, bigger tires that fit do not warrant a change in axles. Getting some manual locking hubs is always a good bet to help save your CV Joints/Boots though.
