Bring it in the Patrol and they will go like sausage sangas with onion and sauce at a BBQ.

Nissan's Cummins-sourced 5.0-litre turbo diesel V8 remains in place under the bonnet. Producing around 230kW and 750Nm in standard trim, the big motor has more than enough pulling power to help the big truck get mobile.

So how do they go at low revs like when 4WDing over really rough terrain?
4.2L TD Toyota Troopy, (Clarke's Country Camper Trailer, softfloor.) sold it and bought a Avan Ray small poptop caravan. I miss being able to acces the little tracks off into the scrub.

Fantastic. Low 1st,  of what ever you choose. And it just walks as any other 4wd.
I have come from a pretty spec  out 105 and i find this is patrol very easy to control. Yes it has all the gizmos like all new 4wd do. And I'll have to say they work very well.
It may sit a little higher in the rev range then a diesel but I still have all the same abilities.

Ha ha yr funny.
Rear bars are already  available.
Spare wheel can be relocated to it.
Long rangers have a tank available.
Will run on Opal. But you may wish to add octane additive. Better then getting "dirty" diesel..
Fuel usage. While touring 15/100...
Rear draws? I have seen about 3 styles todate.
You even have rock sliders available.

So not sure what your on about.  :cheers:

Same as the 200 series.....1st rule is...don't get a flat....2nd rule is...don't lay on the ground, just wind the wheel down, pull it out and reverse for putting the flat under there !!   8) 8)

Shes apples.

Yep I'm sure it use more fuel.. How much more, anyone's guess. From experience though I have found the fuel consumption not over the top as many just  presume. Compared to my mated 200 im usually average 5 / 8L per 100km more. Towing, 4wding, normal driving.  BUT put the loud pedal down its not the  techco that moves the fastest.

Seem to remember a 4WD Action 'cross the Simmo knockout' between a 76 series V8 diesel ute and V8 petrol Datto with the intent of showing how much cheaper the Tojo was to run off road. There wasn't a lot between them in the end, much to my amazement (and theirs I would imagine). The Datty was also the better one to travel in.

Heard a V8 Nissan recently up in Bright that I thought was the best sounding real 4x4 I had ever heard, obviously with an aftermarket exhaust. I ended up drooling through my beard onto my shirt, and the better half had to close my mouth. My diesel was on shaky grounds for a couple of days. :D

I'm usually the 1st to espouse the value of a diesel, but if I had plenty of coin for a new 200 series, the petrol would get serious discussion. The DPF is the one thing for me to maybe push the argument the other way !

Long range fuel tanks  , Pfffffff  ,really   ,just how many times in the life of the rig do you really need them now . Most fuel is within the tank range of the average stock rig . To do a run across the Simpson , Tanamine , or Darwin to Hobart . What cant you do with 4 or more plastic jerries   ??? . Yes you can install a Huge tank for a few Gs or $200 of jerries .
Convince me of the benefit .                            ???                              :cheers:
