Lifted Nissan Patrol – Ultimate Overland Machine

Lifted Nissan Patrol overland

What do we know about the 4×4 culture in Australia? Off-roading and overland adventures are very popular there just as much as they are here in the USA, but there’s one thing that is really different – the cars. Australian domestic market offers a lot of 4×4 vehicles with remarkable off-road capabilities that are not available on the American market and one of such models is the Nissan Patrol Y60, which remains a common platform for various off-road projects during the last few decades.

Nissan Patrol is a rugged off-roader with a reliable 4×4 system, spacious interior and powerful engine, that can take you just about anywhere whether it’s sand dunes, muddy forest trail or a rocky mountain path. We’ve got in touch with Chris from New South Wales, Australia and asked to tell us a couple of words about his awesome lifted Nissan Patrol.

This white lifted Nissan Patrol is powered by a six-cylinder 4.2L turbo-diesel engine. Proper performance is ensured by Garrett 3076 turbo set at 36psi. Among other performance improvements are 3.5-inch stainless exhaust, 12mm fuel pump, injectors, custom manifolds, front mount intercooler and other mods.

Suspension modifications are represented by a 5-inch suspension lift with adjustable King racing shocks.
What really makes this lifted Nissan Patrol look that great are 16×8 steel off-road rims with -22 offset wrapped with 315/75r16 Maxxis Bighorn tires.

Functional exterior mods feature steel bumpers, wide fender flares, off-road lights, spare tire carrier, overland roof basket and many other items.

  • Nissan Patrol has got a huge following on the middle east. It’s probably the most important market for this model. It’s big, powerful and does just great on the sand.
    I’ve also seen a lot of insane performance modifications, with custom twin-turbo kits that make Patrol give out up to 1000hp.

  • Even though they were not officially sold in the USA, Patrols pop-up on classified from time to time, perhaps thy were brought to the US through Canada, If I am not mistaken this body style goes for 5-10k depending on the condition. Knowing how diverse the automotive culture in Cali, I am sure there are Patrol owner clubs there.

  • There models with RB26DETT turbo engines from Skyline GT-R, I would definitely choose Patrol over the Skyline with that much power.
