Hi Guys,

I've recently purchased my first Nissan Patrol and thought I'd introduce myself and the beast.

Its a 1999 2.8 GU ST
33" BF Goodrich A/T Tyres
Bullbar
Snorkel
IPF Extreme Spotties
and a few other bits and pieces.

I'm pretty happy with the purchase. Just drove from Melbourne to Swifts Creek for a couple of days and it goes great. Whoever says these engines don't have much grunt has got to be joking! I made it to Swifts Creek from Melbourne in 4 and a half hours and passed everything in sight, although I don't think I'd ever want to tow anything.

I've already planned my first 4WD trip in a couple of weeks time with my best mate. We're going to head to Swifts Creek (where he's from) and drive back to Melbourne through the Alpine National Park over a couple of days. I'll let you know how it goes.

Troy

They're a great little motor, especially when the vehicle is empty, load 'em up a little and they start to work hard though. I'm sure you'll have plenty of fun in it. The trip across the mountain sounds good.
