Will a 1998 Pathfinder receiver hitch fit onto a 1998 or 2004 Frontier, like just bolting on, does anyone KNOW for sure ? The Pathfinder is V6 and 4WD, and both Frontiers are 2WD and 4-cylinder manual transmissions.

I understand that such hitch onto either Frontier will not make it Class III worthy, just would like to use the receiver hitch for my bicycle rack. Thanks.

Simple answer is NO it will not fit. Because of the way the Pathfinder receiver is basically fully hidden except for the where the hitch is actually mounted, it is built and mounts to the vehicle completely different. I tried to do this exact thing when we got rid of my wife's Pathfinder.

D' oh !!!

A Google Search shows CURT Manufacturing Receiver Hitches 13831 should fit the 2004 Frontier. But may not fit the 1998.

Keep in mind the R50 Pathfinders were unibody, not body-on-frame like the Frontiers/Xterras. The hitch is totally different.
